Living in a hotel...don\'t want to be homeless

Tara W., Dallas, T

I don't have a huge sob story. I'm a 23 year old college student with no family. I was working two jobs and one of the locations had to close. So I got laid off. Now I'm working one part time job. (I'm still looking for another job, I have had some callbacks so it's looking really promising.) I lost my apartment, since I couldn't afford it. After all of that and trying to put myself through school, manage my car insurance- I got so far into a hole that I'm staying in a hotel. I have no money right now. Every check I get goes to the hotel so that I'm not out on the streets. I have no credit and little income so the banks and payday loan places are very unwilling to help me get a loan. I'm not sure what else I can do. I'm trying to get some money together so that I can at least move into a cheap apartment and try to get on my feet.
