It took me some time to give in and do this so here goes.... I am a single father of a beautiful, smart, and funny 5-year-old princess whom I love VERY much! I am recently out of my lowest point in life where for the last ¾ of 2018 I was out of work and had difficulties finding work. Needless to say, this presented quite a challenge with paying rent and maintaining all other financial obligations. Ultimately, I was evicted from my home a little over a week before Christmas and was thankful to have family take me in. In addition to the eviction, I filed for bankruptcy due to number of financial obligations I was unable to meet. I take full responsibility for all that has happened to me and I realize that the difficulties in life are there to help us grow. Since then I have worked a couple of short-term IT contracts (I work as an IT Professional), which has allowed me to begin starting life over again. It was an extreme challenge due to my recent financial history, but I was able to convince a private rentor to rent to me. I also recently accepted a long-term IT contract which will allow me to pay all my recurring financial obligations, however, my given start date was delayed 3 weeks (due to delayed background check). I have JUST started work but will not be able to currently pay my rent for next month due to the unfortunate delay. It was challenging enough to convince the rentor to rent to me, so I don’t want to have to ask him to give me an extension on my rent already after having been there only a month. I am asking for assistance with paying my rent for August 1st in addition to other bills. After August I will be able to maintain so I am not asking for more than what I need. Please help. Thank you and God bless.
