Trying to Survive February

Due to unforeseen circumstances, my fiance and I have found ourselves without money to pay the rent that's due on the fifth and we're facing possible homelessness.

A job my fiance was offered fell through - the location is being closed, and while they offered him another in Maryland, it's four hours away, which is out of the question right now.  I won't be paid for another few weeks and even so, $8/hour wouldn't be enough to cover rent.  As it is, we're behind on everything and are left with two packs of Ramen in the kitchen.  We were really counting on that other job coming through.

We have nowhere to go.  Our friends are without the resources to shelter us; we'd be living out of our cars.  My family refuses to help, and his is telling him to just 'deal with it.'

We've got nothing left to sell, our credit scores are too low to get normal loans, and most of the sketchier loans aren't available in my state.

We're out of options.  If we can get the money for rent, it won't fix everything, but it will give us more time for him to find another job, or for us to find a cheaper place to live.

If you help at all, I'm willing to offer whatever I can.  I'm a pretty good writer and I'm passable with Photoshop.  I'll do whatever I can to repay you.
