Olivers Temporary Relief

Hi everyone - setting up this fund me account has been difficult to do - I have never been one to ask for help. I have been blessed with a great family, relatives and many friends( some I wish I had more time to spend with or just catch up on old times) , but unfortunately I have suffered numerous financial setbacks and currently I have been pushed to the end of my rope.  I have lived a fun and fairly successful life but unbeknownst to all I suffered huge financial losses in the market crash of 2007/2008, and have been trying to get back on my feet eversince. I have been involved in a few business projects but seem to find the worst partners who have screwed me big time.  Finding a good job in todays market is not easy(if you know of any job opportunities, please let me know), so I am constantly working to make ends meet. We have been surviving but the last two months have been dramatically brutal and our finances have been hit hard. It started when the owner of the house we are renting decided he was selling and we needed to be out in 30 days-not only was that a shock but we had to move during the last month of school- which was not easy with the boys and their exams.  Looking for a rental is difficult with dogs - and with the owner not really working with us - we ended up renting a condo- which was willing to rent to us with our dogs, but we had to give 1000 non refundable deposit to go along with first and last.During the move, our car broke down- ended up being a few issues including a broken fuel pump- not cheap. We finally moved into the condo and the AC breaks  - the owner decides to drag his feet to fix it-17 days without AC- not fun in the Texas summer. During the repairs, they found significant amount of mold in the air ducts which we have been advised to move for health concerns. We need to find a new home asap but we can not afford it. We need about $5500 so we can pay the first, security deposit and the dog deposit. Thank you for your time and God bless you.
