Hello, I have waited 6 months to move into the Lashkowitz High Rise, a home for elderly and disabled people in Fargo, ND. It is run very much like an apartment complex, but the staff there check on its residents and there is a social worker on duty every day.
I am on the minimal amount of retirement/disability income (not welfare). Thus far I have saved $225 (security deposit for my birds) during the past 6 months by squirreling away $25-$50 here and there, but I received a phone call Friday saying I'll also need the first month's rent by move in date, which I won't be able to pay in time. It took me 6 months just to save for the deposit, because I make so little money.
I'm really scared because I really need to move there. I am currently living in a sub-standard basement apartment with no insulation, black mold, no windows, etc. I really don't want to miss out on this opportunity. I won't have to worry about money anymore. They have daily meals, ride service to appointments and most importantly people like myself who are disabled too that I can relate to.
Please help me. I've never done this before, but my online friend raised money for funeral costs for her husband so I thought I'd give this a try before I give up. I'm really scared of what the alternative will be. I hope you can take the time to help me move. You can see I've put in maximum effort during the past six months while waiting, but there's no way I can have the $300 in time for move-in. Thanks you for reading this, and have a nice day.
