Unemployment doesn't cover rent

Post by JareLis » Mon Nov 15, 2010 9:45 am

To whom it may concern:



My family and I are in need of just a little help. Currently we are renting the home we are in and looks like we will not be able to come up with December’s rent. My wife currently is unemployed (looking for work) and I am a unemployed student. I am receiving unemployment but as we have found that is not enough to cover our rent and to pay the other bills. We are truly “robbing peter to pay Paul” and are now short of money. Is there any way that we receive any type of assistance for a month?

It looks like you are in Florida, in Hernando County? If so, try this agency. Mid Florida Community Services. You may be able to qualify for the homeless prevention and rapid rehousing program. (352) 796-1425. This provides funds to people to prevent evictions. If qualified, you may be able to get up to 18 months worth of money to pay rent or housing expenses. Even utility and cooling bills in Florida!

Instead of concentrating on getting a full time job, for your girlfriend, since she's working several evenings, have her look for another part time job during the day, 2 part time jobs will equal a full time job. This is what I've had to resort to during this economic downturn, and I keep looking for that full time job in the meantime. Something will turn around.

Hi, I am a single mother of 3. I lost my job 11-27-14 due to client passing.
I wasn't able to find another before my landlord took me to eviction court. The judge gave me until 2-25-15 to be out. I've found a place, DSS has opened my case last week, however they will not assist with a security deposit and my unemployment is not enough money.
They gave several different numbers for possible help in Rochester NY. Everyone has no funding.
I don't want my children 9, 10 in age to live in a shelter. I have all paperwork to prove eviction and move in date from new landlord.
Department of social services (DSS) will not pay back rent so they advised me to move because I CANT AFFORD CURRENT RENT $925.
I'm still seeking new employment at this time. I have a few interviews lined up for next week, however not soon enough to have the $800 security deposit.

Well, we have several more phone numbers to dial for possible rent help in Rochester New York. While we can't impact what funding some agency has or doesn't have, we offer information. But since DSS is not helping, you have no job and 3 kids to support, your best option may be to move to a shelter in Monroe County. Then, eventually, you can save money and pay for the rent and deposit. Learn about other rent and deposit assistance programs in Rochester.
