help with security deposit

I have so many issues and circumstances which have led me to this page, but I am in dire need of some help for my security deposit, and am about 12 days away from getting an eviction notice. I just kept thinking I could do everything on my own after finally ending a abusive relationship, but nothing at all seems to be working out. I am strong and refuse to give up, and crawling back to my ex is not an option, but the concern is for my son, who has watched me struggle through this dead-end relationship with a woman beater, and I hold all the guilt and pain because I should of ended this so long ago but didnt, mostly because I lacked confidence of having to face the world alone, I suppose. I begged and borrowed to get this decent apartment and was determined to start over from scratch without much of any planning whatsoever, but pure desperation and the utter fear within my sons eyes proved to me that, for some reason, the prayers to my God might be going unanswered, and careful and logical planning somehow got swept away by severe depression. I just simply can not roll over and crawl under the blankets and give up trying when my son is depending on me now, more than ever, and I wont. When I found this apartment online I used every penny in savings and borrowed some to pay the rent. The landlord was very reasonable and allowed me to pay the security deposit in two installments, one on the 15th and one on the first. The 15th has come and gone...and now he is not being very nice at all. I make enough money for rent and utilities with no problem, but this 875 dollars for the deposit is so much weight and the thought of taking my boy to a shelter of some kind makes me physically sick. I have posted ads for cleaning and attempted to sell a couple of my only remaining items I have left on craigslist, but no one is calling. I have called so many places from various resources that I have no minutes left on my phone, at a time when I absolutely need it the most, and what I got from 350 minutes of airtime was to hear over and over how no one has funding available. I know I can do this..I feel it..we are so close to achieving that feeling of safety and normalcy and piece of mind that has been gone for all these years, and all I literally have left to do is trust in my God, and reach out to other human beings and hope for the best. I have a letter from my landlord outright demanding a $445.00 deposit which I had promised to pay on the 15th, I have my rent agreement and receipts from when I moved in, and I dont even need to see a single dime from anyone at all. I am willing to give you the owners name and phone number, whatever is needed I will do what it takes.I can work the money off by detailed cleaning or secretary work. Please message me if you have ANY resources at all...thank you for listening...

DEPRESSION SETS IN....

This is just ridiculous. The more I try, the more it gets harder!! My dearest friend gave me $200 so I can give to the landlord for a security deposit. I tried to give it to him yesterday and he wouldn't except it because it wasn't the full amount!!! You gotta be kidding me. Now I have to come up with $700 and where is that suppose to come from, I don't know. All I know is I have to get my children out of here! I have until next Thursday, and after that I don't know where we may end up. I just hope and pray, it doesn't result to these drug and violent infested streets. If anyone can help my children and myself, please email me at :wrighttammy23@yahoo.com

I'm tired of hearing No!!

$800 away from homelessness and need help. I've tried earning the money. I've tried raising the money. But it doesn't seem to be enough. I’m tired of websites offering single mom grants that don’t exist, single mother assistance that doesn’t deliver. I’ve applied for public assistance and I don’t qualify. I’ve appealed to the Salvation Army and similar programs in the community and they either don’t offer the assistance, don’t have funding or require you to be unemployed and living in a shelter to qualify for assistance. Most often when you live in a shelter, you can’t work or own a car. What’s a mother to do?? Take the kids out of school and quit work? That hardly seems like a reasonable answer.

Just A Little Help

Hello I'm a mother of 4, recently I recieved my Section 8 voucher and I;m ready to move out of where I live, I've been at the place where i am since I was 11 years old, my mother moved out and left me the apartment, I am now 33 and so ready to get out of this place because this no place to raise children and I have 4 of them. I was on the waiting list for 10yrs and just recently recieved a letter in the mail to go to a meeting and pick my papers up. They only give you 60 days to find a place and I did, I just need help with my security deposit, I went to the Board of Social Services and they told me I had to be recieving cash assistance which I don't the only income i have is my son's Social Security Benefits, I am in college double majoring in Human Services and Computer Science and my husband is disabled and has been out of work for 8 months already, so right now I am holding the fort down, I wouldn't have a problem getting the deposit but I have a electric bill to try to pay off because I can't move into a home with no electric, we are so backed up with this bill, thats why its hard to for me to come up with the deposit, all I ask is for a little help, I tried various agencies and they all say the can't help me, I don't want to lose this house, my children are excited and I don't want to let them down.

My request for help is for a security deposit. I am a single mother of 3 children, 2 boys and 1 girl, ages 11,9, and 4. We have been blessed with Section 8 after having waited for it for about 9 years. The only problem is Section 8 doesnt help with the Security Deposit. I am still paying rent where I currently live and bills, and Im not working, I am due to move July 3rd and I am still short on my security deposit, this situation really has me stressed out, I dont want to lose my voucher, I feel that would be a great benefit for me and my family. I just need some security assistance...

I've been out of work for almost two years with an unknown and undiagnosed illness.During this period of time I've been renting and have had bad luck with getting a good and honest landlord. I had to move due to fraudulent activity done by the owner and refusal to make appropriate repairs. I am in need of  a security deposit for my new  place and beds for my daughter and I. At this time I don't have enough to pay to move, get a truck, and pay the first month's rent. If I can be helped in any kind of way that would be sooo great!!!!

Hi, My name is Angela. I am 22 years old, and 6 months pregnant. I am currently in desperate need of slight financial help. I am in need of a $400 security deposit to move into an apartment I had found through housing.  I have no family willing to help and am staying on random couches for the time being. I had been in the local shelter but had been kicked out for being in the hospital over-night without the proper permission. There are no local agengcies able or willing to help. I am unemployed and currently ineligable for cash assistance through the welfare office. I am trying to do what is best for my son and I, but I find myself in a ditch that I can't seem to get out of. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

I've recently been evicted, because I left my friends and there kids stay with us for a weekend. I live in government housing and apparently this is illegal. My friends lost there house and needed a place for a weekend until they got paid so they could get another place, I tried to help and got in trouble over it. I have 4 children of my own and my husband works full time. We found a place that's big enough and affordable, but there is no way we can afford security deposit and I can't get help because i'm evicted from HUD housing. I need $400.00 and I've only scraped together about $200.00 so far, I only have one week left to figure this out or we will end up on the street. I can't do that to my kids, but I don't know how to fix it.
