This person has left the following thank you note:
Please accept my heartfelt thanks for funding my request. I have been financially overwhelmed and struggling to catch up ever since moving into my apartment and now I can finally breath. I had no idea that there were people out there who who would be willing to help out somebody like me, who had nothing to offer in return. I hope and pray that I will soon be in a position to be as generous to someone else as you have been to me. Thanks to you and your generosity, I will be able to pay my rent on time without having to take out another payday loan or have another utility disconnected. I will not have to live in that fear of being homeless again.
Veteran Needs Rental Assistance After Moving For New Job
I am a single Army Veteran who loves to read. I also write short stories and poems. I love dogs and wish I had one of my own.
I moved to Tampa last year for a job offer with a temporary place to stay while I saved money. The job was canceled by the temp agency. I was facing homeless so when I found a job, I moved to a new place. I payed the deposit and gave almost my entire first check for my prorated rent. I didn't expect the $300 deposit for electricity and they turned off my power. I have been getting payday loans ever to catch up with my rent and the fees are starting to set me back substanitally. I need help with my rent.
This assistance will catch my rent up and eliminate the need for me to get another payday loan. I will finally be on track and able to sleep at night without the threat of eviction and the worry of repeated homelessness.
