the most common way for a someone coming to the United States to be approved by a landlord is to offer 1 year's rent upfront. And even sometimes landlords won't accept a year up front for accounting reasons. Insurent acts a guarantor to lessees who do not have credit, income, etc. You fill out the Insurent application and go through their application process and wait for approval. Upon approval and upon finding your new home, you will pay Insurent a 1 time fee. I know plenty of landlords who will work with you.
