Single working father needing help with rent while looking for more work

Requesting: $325

Location: Des Moines, IA

A few months ago my daughters mother decided to leave and left me with back rent to pay as well as current. I applied for assistance and got it which helped at the time but the job i quickly got wasnt enough and my hours have been cut since then. I applied for F.I.P. and got it but after working at my low hour and minimum paying job for a little while they cut my FIP by half which at its max i was just barely scraping by. I am trying to find other work and have begun selling off possesions but have run out of things to sell and rent is 600 not to mention utilities. I am in dire need of rental help so i can provide myself and my daughter a place to live.

I need money to pay my rent for this month because the money i currently have and am making just isnt enough for my now higher rent. I am looking for more affordable housing though have yet to find any, and when my childs mother left she took the only vehicle we had. My only means of transportation is walking and with the cold weather affecting my trauma induced asthma its hard enough just to walk the several blocks to work. My only plan for the money is to put it towards my rent of 600$.

I only ask for any help on this matter because of my child the bitter cold weather and the short amount of time in which to pay rent before an eviction notice is served. Any help i could get would go directly and only towards rent for the purposes of keeping a roof over our heads and so i do not lose custody of my little girl who means everything to me. As i stated before i am currently looking for work in my area and am also in the process of trying to go back to school so i can better myself and in turn better my childs life. Thank you for any consideration for assistance. does not verify individual user claims for accuracy. We are not responsible for content posted by individual users.
