Starting Over with Nothing

I have been offered a job in Coldwater, MI.  Due to some issues, I have lost everything I had, as everything I owned was taken from my former residence.   I have been offered a teaching job, but I have to move 2 hours away from the place I am staying.  If it were not for relatives supplying me a place to live, I would have been homeless.  I have been working (substitute teaching), but, due to child support, paying for college classes to keep my teaching certificate, and my driver education license, I have not been able to save any money.  I need to find a place to rent, and I do not have any bedding, or any furniture (I can do without furniture for awhile). 

I am very embarrassed to admit that my life has hit this point, and I have kept it from as many people as possible. I cannot miss out on this employment opportunity.  This money would be used to pay my first month's rent, a rental deposit, as well as buy a bed to sleep in.  I need to be in Coldwater on Monday, and I am, more than likely, going to stay in a motel for the first week ($270).  After that, I will have exhausted most of my pay that I will be getting this weekend.  I will not be paid from the new job until December 16, 2017. 

If you would like additional information, as to what happened, feel free to contact me on Messenger, and I will explain.  Again, I am embarrassed about this, but I have to swallow my pride and ask for help, as this is the way I can turn my life around.
