Hello, I am Derek Compton, the head of the Compton Family of nine. I am the only source of income for our family and I have been looking for work for about six months now. Please help us. I am penniless and we need help please. Thank you.

Hello all, I am Derek J Compton and I am in desperate need of financial help. I have been out of work for quite a while and my funds are totally dried. My lines of credit have been exhausted and I have no way of paying my bills, paying for food, gas and my basic necessities. The food stamps that I receive from Social Services barely last a week or two.

I have tried eveything to find work, I am listed on every job board in the world, I believe. I have sent multiple blasts out to my linkedin and facebook network. No recruiters have been able to place me for some reason. I have over 25 years of professional experience and I am so ready to go back to work.

I lost my home to vandalism and fire and now the house is condemned. My insurance company denied my claim and returned my premium payment stating that the policy was not verified. I had just fully renovated it all too, which exhausted the savings that I had at the time. I was working then, so I did not worry so much. I was terminated unexpectantly without any notice and I was never paid my last paycheck.

I feel like I am stooping as low as possible right now and this has been a really humbling experience. I would not ask for help from anyone unless I was in dire need as I am now.

If you could please find it in your heart to help us, then I will greatly appreciate it. My six children and two grandchildren will appreciate it as well. I am continuing to look for work, however, in the meantime, I need to be able to keep a roof over our heads and I need financial help right now to do so.

Also, please keep me in mind for any work that you may know about for me. I am willing to do any type of work. However, I would prefer to work in my field, of course. I have over 19 years of IT experience (HRIS Management and SAP HCM IT Consulting) as well as six years of Accounting experience.

I am also a US Navy Veteran and a former US government employee as well.

Please help.
