Hello! I am posting on behalf of my family and I. I have a husband and 4 little boys. Last May, my family relocated to Portland, Oregon for a job opportunity for my husband, who has been in asbestos abatement for over 6 years. We are moving back to the KC area and are having trouble finding someone who will rent to us. We both have bad credit, and have an eviction in Kansas city from may of 2018, we couldve fought it, but didn't have the opportunity due to relocating here so fast. Long story short my husband worked for a home management company that played him off without notice, when that was his full time job, he couldn't find handyman work in the dead of winter, and we ended up racking up a couple months of rent because of it. I was pregnant and stayed at home with our 3 young boys. They evicted us with no communication, flat out blocked our contacts so we had no way of working things out or even trying to pay them before court if we wanted to. We showed up in court, told the judge our story, and she sent it straight to trial. We still were supposed to vacate the premises, and also happened to need to relocate for his job in Portland. That all ended up happening quickly and traumatically for our family (I was 8 months pregnant). And we missed our trial court date, so it swung their way.

Obviously we know our odds aren't great, but everything we've gone through has really set us straight. We've been striving to be better and change our lives in this new environment for our family, and really are turning over a new leaf. I moved here for him, and he's moving us back for me. I've found more serious health concerns for myself while being here, and want to be close to home.
My husband had his own general contracting business for one year successfully during 2017-2018, and also had 3.5 years in the laborers 264. He has already solidified an opportunity to go back to the union, and I work in food service.
We would love to be closest to our family as possible, they are out in Odessa. But we know we cannot be picky and appreciate any opportunity that is given to us.
Please, if you know of any resources or people who may be open to us paying a double deposit, or a first, last month AND deposit due to our circumstances, don't hesitate to say so. Thank you so much for your time and consideration!
