Exclamation Please help me find a place to live, Urgent.

One night a man ran into bushes and trees very close to my house when I opened the door. I sat terrified all night and prayed. I'm disabled. I have so many things wrong with this place, yet the Landlord told me I had to maintain everything. I thought if renting, the Landlord was responsible. After paying high rent, I can't pay bills or buy food. So, how can I fix a broken dishwasher or toilet or flooring that is coming up and mow grass that is tall as I am and looks like a jungle? I'm scared to walk on it. I got stung by a bee that flew out from it one time when I did and I'm allergic. Know that this place would look great if the Landlord took interest but won't. Forgive me for saying that but true.

Plus, I need to get closer to town. Please, please pray I get in a home I can afford. Please. Thank you, Love y'all Sheila

Hail Mary,
Full of Grace,
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit
of thy womb,
Jesus.
Holy Mary,
Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of our death
Amen.

Eternal God , in whom mercy is endless,
and the treasury of compassion inexhastible ,
look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us ,
that in difficult moments we might not despair
nor become despondent , but with great confidence ,
submit ourselves to Your Holy Will ,
which is love and mercy itself . Amen

Memorare (Prayer to Our Lady)
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession, was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To you do I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in your mercy, hear and answer me. Amen

Sheila,

First thing first - you should take your copy of your lease to either Legal Aid, or some other free legal service, or call an attorney and ask if they will look at it for you "pro bono" (that means free to you).

It's been a while since I lived in the Great State of Texas, but they do have laws that govern what the landlord is obliged to do to keep rental property habitable, and safe. There may also be County or Town codes about leasing and habitability as well.

So seek legal advice from a lawyer/legal services.

Second, I am praying for you. I know what it's like to be living in an uncertain and dangerous place. May God comfort and protect you from all harm.

Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name; Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
Amen.

One great post. DEFINITELY get some legal assistance.
Then you have my prayers; It seems odd a tenant renting a place is responsible for upkeep.
Mary.

Lord, please send angels to help Sheila find a suitable place to live. Protect her always from all temptations and evils. Lead her through this and all situations, through your Passion, and close to your Sacred Heart, now unto eternity. Shine a preview of the heavenly light into this darkened realm. Have mercy, Lord. Our Lady, angels, and saints, pray with us. Amen.

Perhaps you can speak with your parish priest and let him know your situation. The youth group may welcome the opportunity to take care of the grass, raise money to have the repairs done and help you move.
