Couple looking for room or apartment! (Cedar Rapids, Marion, Hiawatha)

Married couple (3 years married, almost 5 being together) no kids, and rarely have visitors. Non-judgmental, lgbtq+ friendly, & very respectful. Looking for an apt or house preferably but would also consider a room/basement, husband works days (may possibly move to one close a week soon) wife is a stay at home cat mom *also runs a small in home craft business* (pet friendly a MUST! We have 2 cats that are 1 yr and a kitten *they take a bit to warm up to new animals but are otherwise very friendly! Hissing and some light paw batting w/no claws during warm-up stages* clean, quiet, very respectful. We are smokers but have NO PROBLEM going outside to smoke even in bad weather and cold/snow. Our income is about 2800 gross monthly, looking to spend no more than $1000/monthly for apt or house with 1-2 bedrooms, or up to $400 + utilities for a room *$600 + utilities for basement space* we have some flexibility on price range as well. Need somewhere flexible with backgrounds. The wife has an eviction from 5 years ago come June. The worst thing on our backgrounds is that the wife has an assault from a past roommate's self-defense situation *she was defending herself*, willing to explain in detail if requested. We are very chill and when we do on occasion have company we only talk to about 5 people so our circle is very small, also wiling to respect reasonable times for visitors allowed in a room/basement situation. Please any leads would be super helpful!! We are currently in a hotel paying over $1200 a month. We have our own transportation and would be willing to offer rides *minimal gas money required or in exhange for discounted rent/utilites* and help around the house if wanted/needed will be 100% provided by both of us! Also if willing to accept a deposit in payments or with assistance from an organization, etc, that would be INCREDIBLE as it's near impossible to save living in our current situation. Thank you so much for reading and any and all help/leads!
