Help Me Not Be Homeless

I did not expect to be making this 3 days after moving across states for the first time in my life but sometimes shit like this happens.

My name is Kai, i recently moved to Bellingham Washington after living in California for all my life, and everything seemed to be alright. i found a room for a rent for a price that seemed okay to me, after talking to the person subletting their room we worked it out and i ended up moving all my stuff there.

A few hours ago i heard that my new roommates got a notice because their old roommate kept telling him he would move back into his old room but kept avoiding paying rent and deceiving them for months on end which means there's a certain amount that needs to be paid
otherwise an eviction notice will be served.

On top of this i was also informed this lease only lasts until September 1 of this year (something i was never informed of) which means even if the amount is able to be paid i will only have 3 months on top of that to move out.

so as you see i have 2 situations in play that both mean very bad things for me, a person in their early 20's who had assumed i would have a couple months to get back on my feet and get a job 2 states away from the majority of my family.

I put the amount needed as 3000$ because depending on the situation one of 2 things will have to happen which both will be costly.
1. I will have to have enough money to find a place before the 1st of next month if the current situation my roommates are in is not solved
2. i will need to continue paying rent for another 3 months on top of figuring out moving costs and  getting everything ready for that in time.

Because of these factors i dont have a concrete measure of how much money i actually need but know that all of this money will go towards acquiring a rental (deposit/first and last month), dealing with moving costs (i will need to hire a helper to drive and possibly to help me moving my stuff as i have chronic pain) and any remaining amounts will go towards covering rent as i try to find a job while in the middle of this situation. I do not plan on touching any of this money unless a true crisis situation hits re: moving and if so i will update this.

I don't make this lightly, as someone who has experienced financial troubles all my life i dont feel great about having to ask for money but im in a situation where i dont see many other options.

I appreciate you taking the time to check this out and if you can do anything to help it would mean the world to me, thank you.


Additionally if you are in the area and know/have any way of helping with housing please contact me about that
