Scott's Re-Housing Fund

Hello... My name is Scott Johnson, though most know me as Skot. I am a single father of 5, 4 of which are in my primary care. Due to a long string of unfortunate events, my kids and I are being evicted, and because I missed a court date, I have been put on the eviction fast track. I found out a week ago, that I had until the 3rd to be out of my house. I really do not like drama, and so will leave it at that I tried to fight the eviction, and tried to comply to my landlady's demands, but last minute, she changed the cause for eviction to "unlawful detainer". Paying up my rent will not keep me from being evicted, so my fundraiser is to help me raise funds for the deposit and first months rent of a new place, to close out any unpaid utilities, and put my kids and I in a motel until i can locate a new house. I know $10,000 is a lot, but I did not want to under fund my family. I was hoping to stay in the same city, but that seems highly unlikely, as my rent was as low as it was, because my landlady is a slumlord of sorts. Anyway, I am not even sure if I am doing this correctly... I apologize if there seem to be too many holes in my story, I am currently at my wits end, am just trying to keep a roof over my kids heads. I thank the one and the all of you for any and all help you give me and mine...

Forever Thankful,
            Scott "Skot" Johnson
