James lives in Sacramento , he had a rent increase that has spiraled into a series of unfortunate events and has made him suddenly homeless . I’m looking to raise some funds so that he can have a deposit to put down on a new place to live and can buy food and water for himself and his dog. ( there’s also a cat) .He is disabled as well and having trouble finding a place he can rent with his beloved pets on top of being out on the steeet. He had an apartment he was priced out of which forced to a roommate situation in a house where he was robbed (losing his ID as well which is a huge ordeal ) leaving this place he found a new home to rent a room in and the day he was supposed to move in the woman decided her boyfriend was moving in with her instead of him and he ended up on the street without warning. He has someone watching his cat luckily but he and his dog are currently seeking a place to go , the homless shelters are at capacity in Sacramento and the weather is getting worse .Small defeats like these tend to spiral and get worse , if you have ever had situations go out of control you had no say in you understand. If you don’t want to donate please share this and thank you for reading .

My phone died today and I was forced to get a new one. Facebook isn't sending me the security codes on my new phone so I'm currently without access to social media, have none of my contacts and had to put down $138 (100 + activation) on a new phone.

Thanks to everyone who has helped. I'm having trouble even getting help from shelters until my replacement ID arrives. I've got housing wanted ads up on craigslist and roomster. Currently my monthly income is $850 from benefits so my housing budget is $500 , which is going to be tight anywhere until I can land another job. I've been looking for new housing since January in Sacramento, and need to consider other areas at this point. If you know of cheaper areas please get in touch. As of 03/07 I'll be back outdoors with my dog until something changes. I'm healthy, and able to eat and stay clean and presentable at least, thanks to your help. My dog is handling things fairly well, although he's avoiding water.

James has a room for tonight and tomorrow but we’re still looking for any short or long term rental / roomate options that will take him and his pets in California ( pretty broad search but looking everywhere can’t hurt ) - Again , thank you for contributing to helping someone in real need , if you have a lead on a place to stay please share it with us and please feel free to share the link ! You guys are the good guys , Sara
