I was evicted and now sleeping in my car

Post by Hopkins » Thu Apr 10, 2014 5:41 pm

Very low income 13,161.60 a year, totally disabled and can't work. I went thru bad marriage, bad credit. I was also evicted because couldn't afford rent, living out my car. The family tell you that you can live in there place for free and under city violation, and until you receive section 8 voucher, which is what I’m waiting for or until I get on my feet. They than started charging me rent I can't afford, then I am back sleeping in my car. I need help!!

I need assistance with first month rent and security deposit so I can stop sleeping in my car. I work full time, but I'm raising 2 small children with no assistance. I just went thru a nasty divorce and lost everything. I just need some help getting back on my feet.
I was evicted at the end of the month and we will be homeless if not for my car. Any help at this point will be better than what I have. I really need a response ASAP. I'm begging and pleading for any help available. Not looking for a hand out, just a hand up to address our past eviction. Thanks in advance.

If you are sleeping in your car, maybe move to a shelter in Cleveland first to save money. Your two small children can also go to a facility with you. That way you can save up your money for the deposit help you need, and get out of that car. The shelter will also have programs to help you get back on your feet.

My husband and I have been homeless for 4 months now. We have 3 school age kids and need help. We currently sleep in our car or if we can have the kids stay at a family member’s house we do so. My husband is waiting on his unemployment to be approved. And he's looking for work meanwhile. We need any help with housing please. We have never been evicted but we don't have good credit. Thanks.

Recently I have been evicted from my home and am now in a car. I had four children and we were abandon by my husband and left with nowhere to go. I have a job making 16.41 an hour at Aetna but I really need help finding a place for me and my children. I tried to sign up for section 8 last year but it is still pending. I would really appreciate any and all the assistance that I can get to help get me and my children back on our feet. Thank you in advance.

Me and my husband has been sleeping in our car. We are looking for jobs but no luck yet. We are hoping to find something soon.
We are trying to find a place to live. We have 3 children that is in foster care right now cause we have no way to be able to take care of them. We are going to be starting drug rehab soon to get clean for our baby's. We have no one that can help us, no family that we can stay with. It's just me and him it. It is really cold at night time.
We can have our car running because of no gas. We have no food. We are lucky enough to get enough scrap to get enough money to get a little gas and a little food.
I'm begging you please, We need help bad. We don't know what to do anymore. We miss our baby's and want to bring them home.

Talk to a social worker that deals with foster care kids. There are housing and shelter programs, listed here for SC.

Maybe they have ideas for other programs you need too, such as gas, etc.

I am in need of deposit assistance I do have a job. I have a son and we were evicted and are currently staying in the car or motel six. So its hard for me to save money due to this reason. I have found a unit in Union city and he will hold it for me if I can get deposit money to him. I do have a section eight voucher and if I don't get this place my voucher will expire... then I will really be down. Please help, thank you.

To whom it may concern. I am trying to locate a gentleman with your organization that I was told will help me as I am homeless and living in a friend's car after recently having brain surgery and losing my husband and being evicted. I was told that you guys offered gift cards for gas Etc. I would appreciate any response I can get and thank you so much for your time.
