Rent money was stolen

I recently became homeless because my purse was stolen and bank account depleted. I pressed charges and filed fraud claim with my bank yet they will not replace stolen funds! I have since went into serious debt and have not been able to financially catch up. I am a middle-aged divorced single woman on SSDI who suffers from extreme mental disabilities. I am in desperate need of finding some rental assistance. I do not feel that I will survive being homeless and living on the streets! I am too old and too sick. Thank you for you time and consideration in this most urgent matter.

That will be very hard to prove. But you can still try to find agencies that may help you with that rent. There are also services, such as Supportive Housing, that are focused on the disabled and people with a mental illness. Or look into a shelter. But in the meantime, find a listing of all of our programs for assistance for rental costs.

My fiancée and I have both lost our jobs, and have need of rent assistance. Our last money was stolen. We are in danger of being evicted, with no where to go. I will have a job starting next week, but then that will be another 2 weeks before I get paid. We have 3 children and need food assistance. If we cannot pay our car note, it will be repossessed next week. We need help in a bad way. Thank you.

I moved into an apartment 2 weeks ago with another girl who assaulted me and stole my money. A Police report was taken and we both have to leave. My share to pay out is 390.00. I was homeless before and will be again if I don’t get help.
I work as a security officer but my hours vary and I usually make around 400.00 and up a month. My rent was 260.00 but I owe a month and a half to leave plus need to get in some place new. I have a girl from work that will share cost with me to rent a 3 bedroom apartment. I hope you can help me. I am 23 and have been homeless for a couple years, I finally got a job 7 months ago and an apartment 2 weeks ago but as I said my roommate assaulted me, stole what I had saved for rent, and I’m afraid and I am leaving.

I was looking for groups or charities even churches in my area that can help with rent assistance. I live in Pompano Beach Florida and have gone through a really tough time while trying to deal with fraud that hit my account. I have an eviction notice and have to be out by the end of the month.
I've tried everything in my power to raise this money after it was stolen and was only able to come up with 400 of what I needed. I need help I have two kids that I don't want to put out on the streets.

We have both listed on our site...a group of charities and churches. Find rent assistance in Broward County, which may help you and your 2 kids. Maybe between these groups you can get the $400 you need. And call the police to report the theft.
