I'm staying in a hotel room with my disabled mother and we will not have the amount of money we needed to pay for another month in this hotel and we don't get enough money this month to pay both a deposit and the first mouth rent. We just need some help to pay the land lord in Des Moines Iowa and get into a place so that we are not on the street next month.
My mother is also going to have work done on her hip next month. I am just really in a tight spot taking care of her with some help we could get back on are feet. So we can pay the help back if we could get it.

I need help paying my rent as well as security deposit. I am in Clive, Iowa. I need to know how to contact Saint Vincent to get help. I have been in substance abuse treatment and have not been able to return to college so I have not received any student loans which was how I was originally paying rent. I am on disability but trying to further my education so I can successfully make it in the career world.
Due to withdrawing from class while in treatment I have a balance due for books so on a business hold right now. So, I can't get students loans and my disability don't cover my bills. I can't become homeless in Iowa on top of everything going on in my life right now...please help.

I have been homeless for a while sleeping in tents, anywhere and everywhere. I am jumping from place to place. I have 4 small children and a 5th on the way will be here in a few months.
I'm not able to work to save money for the security deposit. My fiancé was our provider until Friday the 20th when they took him to jail. He will be getting out on the 6th and going to the RCF in Council bluffs IA so I will be raising my kids on my own until he gets out.
We need help finding a home and paying the bills until I have my baby, then I can go back to work. I need a deposit for a place in council bluffs in emergency situation by the 10th. Please and thank you.

Hello, my name is CA ‘Shon. I am seeking help for my security deposit out of Iowa. My security deposit amount is $750 but since I have a previous eviction on my record, I have to pay the landlord the deposit as well as first month’s rent x2. Leaving me at a total of $2,250.00
I can come up with most or about half of this, and I can afford the monthly rent itself. It’s just a lot for me to pay upfront and would really appreciate the assistance by the security deposit to the landlord. Being young and having an eviction due to a family emergency makes it extremely difficult to find renters so when I do I try to be as grateful as possible. If you could reply there I would appreciate it very much. Thank you.
