Hello my name is Chris. I have a wife and four children (12, 10, 9, and 4). I am a decorated veteran who served honorably in the United States Navy Submarine Force for 10 years. The company I was working for shut its doors, not only leaving me unemployed but not making its final payrolls. It took a year to find new employment. During that time, my finances and credit were destroyed. I have been to court for eviction and have only a few days left at my current location. I have found other rentals in the area at half the rent and less than half the utilities cost. Unfortunately, due to the credit damage of the last year and only having a short time on the new job, landlords have asked for several months upfront (most places so far have requested 6 months plus security deposit). Based on what I have already, I would need another $5500 to make this happen. Due to 2 children receiving special services and 2 children in special accelerated classes, I would really hate to leave the area and the schools here. If I cannot raise the funds needed, I have very limited options. I would have to move into a homeless shelter, where my wife would have to reside in a separate area from our children (males and females are separated for security). While a relative has offered a temporary lodging, this would not work for the long term: I would have to pull my children out of school and home-school, and the neighborhood is not safe for children. Any assistance would be welcomed. Now that I am working it is only a matter of time before I can support the family again but at this time the hurdle is almost impossible to overcome. Thank you
