In addition to my last answer on your other post, you could be proactive and put in Craigslist ads and other ads in free publications to see who responds to your situation. There may be some landlords that have the heart to want to help you. Also, if you have cash available you can offer to pay advance rent or a little higher rent or deposit than necessary just to sweeten the deal and get into a nice place before winter gets here. Get as many referrals and references as you can.
