Your best chances are with a rental community like Camdmen, they will request double deposit depending on your situation.
I had a Bankrupsy and never had a problem also try directly with owner like forrentbyowner.com
I am very sorry to hear about your very unfortunate circumstances. I congratulate you on moving on with your life. It is possible to find owner that will rent you their home. It may require you to provide additional deposit or show secure consistent income. All it takes Joseph is to be honest and up from with your situation which you are doing now and the rest will take care of itself. If you need help, or have any other questions, please give me a call. 407-844-8622. The people understand life is not perfect and all you have to is just ask. I hope this give you some hope.

Your situation is not unique and if you have a good income to cover the rent and are up front with the landlord about your situation a lot of times they will consider you. In todays world with the credit bureau too quick to put someone on the "list" as a risk honesty is the best policy. Of course you should be working and have proof of that along with possibly referrals from your boss or your previous landlord always helps. Don't give up! It can be worked out.
