Funds for security deposit in Colorado and first months rent

Post by Jeremiah » Fri Dec 13, 2013 2:16 pm

I relocated here to Denver, Colorado to make a new start after my youngest son went to live with his dad. I just found a real good job and I am supposed to start next Tuesday. I got a call from my sons father that he is going to ship my son back from Colorado Springs, which is where I moved from.

He wants to sever all of his rights. My son is 14. I don’t have any money to get him, pay for a deposit or move into a place of my own. I can more than pay for rent once I move into a place of my own. I just have to do it sooner than expected due to the situation with my son. I was trying to find some assistance to help me financially get into a place so I can have a place for my son to come. I am currently staying with a friend in a 1 bedroom apartment. Although he has been nice enough to get me stay there, I cannot ask him to allow my son to say there as well. It is just too much to ask and much to small. Please let me know if there is anything you can do to help. Thank you.

I have recently broken up with my boyfriend. We have a 3 year old son together and we are going through custody. I am not able to afford a deposit and first month’s rent all at once in Boulder Colorado. I have been paying most of the bills and due to my son's father not helping and not starting child support yet I just can't do it all. I have to be out of my place by the end of the month and can't afford a deposit on a place for my son and I. I don't know of anywhere to get help with this and have been doing everything I can to figure this out. Thank you for your time in advance.

I am 20 years old in need of help to pay my first month rent coming up in 2 weeks in Denver Colorado. I just recently moved to Texas from Minnesota and I’ve been here since August. I am living with my dad we shared a one bedroom and had a six month lease together, well the lease was up February 28th and I ended up spending over three thousand dollars on hotel, gas, food, laundry.
I also racked up a 2000 dollar debt on my car from getting title loans here and there so we could get by, we meaning me and my girlfriend and her little sister. They are 20 and 17 and they also recently moved here in August from Madison Wisconsin.
But from February 27th until April 7th I was in motel 6 and even had to sleep in my car a couple nights. I had to quit my job with ABM security on March 21st because I couldn’t afford gas to get back and fourth. I used my last paycheck and pay stub to move into my apartment that I am currently living in now and have been since April 8th.
Rent is due on the first in Colorado and I have now way to pay rent. I have been applying for different jobs but no luck so far. I applied and got approved for food stamps on April 13th, but it was one hundred and thirty three dollars. I need help with this months rent which is due on May 1st. The rent will be $435.

I Need extra help for rent deposit to get me in my new apartment on housing by 12/29/2016. Also need extra help on my lights so I could start services and get it switched over. I live in pueblo Colorado and I and my spouse have been homeless for 8 months.
I was wrongfully fired as a medical nurse from a boring home. I have an attorney who is taking action due to the wrongful termination and sexual assault on me. Since I lost my job it's been downhill and hardship on us. I am overcoming the agony of us being homeless and struggles we faced. We have no extra help to get us in our apartment. We need urgent help please.
It's has been very cold living in our car. We cannot afford motels. We have no more options left besides to ask an agency to help with our rent and energy. We are ongoing counseling through the victims compensation program in pueblo Colorado. Please we ask that somebody in resources for extra help will look and understand our situation. THANKS! PLEASE CONTACT US.

My family and I just moved to the Apache Junction Colorado area, and are suddenly finding ourselves needing different accommodations than we had set up in advance. We were planning on spending some time at the Lost Dutchman State Park; we even have a very nice outfitters tent to make our stay more pleasant. We had arranged to spend some time with the only people we really know around here for a few weeks, then move to the campsite until my husband had earned enough wages to pay first and last month’s rent at a trailer park or something. I am actually disabled but unable to get disability yet.
Unfortunately, we have been surprised to find out that we cannot really stay here much longer, and my husband will not get his first check from his new job until nearly the end of July. So we need help with moving as well as a security deposit. I was hoping we could get help paying for two weeks at a non-electric tent campsite at Lost Dutchman State Park. We considered trying to camp on BLM land, but my disability ensures I need to be close to running water and toilet facilities, so we need an actual campsite. If you could find any way to help, my husband, three children and I would be incredibly grateful and forever in your debt.
If not, we understand--$200 IS a lot of money for a deposit, and I wouldn't be asking if we weren't desperate. Thanks for reading, regardless of the outcome, and if you would rather call to respond to my inquiry. Thanks again. Sincerely

Longmont Colorado, 80501.
I am 42 and Disabled. I'm on SSDI. I am making strides to better my life. I have recently been accepted to Walden University to finish my Bachelor of Psychology. My boyfriend just returned to work. We found and was able to put 300 towards the first month and security deposit. We currently owe $1475 by September 30th. I think we can come up with another $575. We would need $900 to secure our home for security deposit and first month rent. With his job, my SSDI and students’ loans that kick in in December we will have no problems paying the rent. We will be homeless and starting over as of October 1st if we don't pay this deposit. We’re making positive steps forward. Is there immediate help out there, grants? Thank You for your time.
