I am in need of emergency rental assistance. I lost my job & I apply everyday & even registered on job sites. I recently was offers a job, I accepted, I’m just waiting for my background check to come back. I don’t like this asking for help but I’m single I live alone & I’m struggling right now. I don’t have anywhere I could go but where I’m at. I will be just fine when I start this new job that I’m so excited to start but right now I don’t have a choice here but to ask for help with my rent.
