So you are paying the $650 month for a basement? Talk to the person you are renting from and try to get a discount on that. Very expensive for a basement. In the meantime, other places you may want to call are the City of Fort Lauderdale Housing & Community Development Division, and their phone number is (954) 828-4512. Ask about the rapid rehousing and homeless prevention program, which can help people pay rent and security deposits. Other agencies to call for help may include the ones listed here. Try to find another part time job too.

I have not paid the May rent and have no resources to do so. I will be able to pay June but the landlord wants the May rent and I don't blame him. I like living here with my 13 yr old daughter and 18 yr old daughter who has a new baby (3 mos old). I am unemployed and receive disability from the insurance company where I was last employed and my daughter is unemployed and has not yet received any child support from the child's father. The father lied about income so she will receive less than $200.00 per month to support her baby. I have been paying expenses which is why I am short this month. I live in Racine County which offers help however you must have an eviction notice and a lease neither of which I have. Please contact me ASAP with any suggestions to obtain help for a one time payment of my May rent. I am desperate. Thank you.

Yes, unfortunately you usually need to have an eviction notice in order to get emergency rent help. So did you review the fact he lied and reduced benefits with the court system, and how can you not have a lease? A housing counselor may be able to help with those issues though. Places to call in Racine for help include Racine's Legal Action (Phone number is (262) 635-8836). They offer various government HUD programs, which are directly related to eviction prevention and rental programs. They have various free housing counselors on staff too.

Need rental assistance. I am $7000.00 in the rear. I still have a roof over my head because of the compassion of my landlord(owner). My utilizes are off and I get help from another tenant in my apartment. I was told by a church I would get help but this never happened. I am not from Birmingham Alabama and have no family to get support from. This situation has caused a great deal of stress and I feel I need to talk to someone concerning my mental health. I was forced to move to Alabama from New Orleans because of Katrina years ago. I can not afford to go home and can't afford to stay. Need a job but at my age of 30 no one wants to hire a person of that age. I is nice to get help but a job would be best.

That is great that your landlord is willing to work with you. And that now you are looking to compensate/repay your landlord for that compassion. Why will someone now hire you at that age? Was that a typo? Anyway, in the meantime, use this for Birmingham Alabama rent assistance, as dozens of charities, non-profits, and other organizatiosn focus on this need in the Jefferson County Alabama area. Places like the Birmingham Helpline Christian Outreach Ministries, Inc. which can be reached at 833-7712

There are so many emergency rental assistance programs out there it is incredible. the challenge is that the demand is so high and many have limited funding, so they can't help everyone who needs it. The goal of them is to prevent homelessness, evictions, and and really keep people in both safe and affordable homes, apartments, and living conditions.

Yes, you are behind now and are definitely facing an emergency situation. Some programs do exist, and the fact you have a child may put you a little higher in line for help. Find our listing of programs that offer emergency funds for paying rent. It is a guide by city. http://needhelppayingbills.com/html/eme ... tance.html

Is Alexandra in Arlington County? If so, then here is some information on Arlington assistance programs. Follow link for a couple options, but looks like the leading place to call is Northern Virginia Family Service (NVFS). Also, for some more general information on assistance and rental programs in Virginia, try this for statewide resources. http://needhelppayingbills.com/html/vir ... grams.html

Dear Sir/Madam:
I have been trying for several weeks to get some assistance in regard to paying my rent. I have not yet paid my rent for March 2012 and currently owe $1540. DSS will not help me because I am working and have a small income. I live in Hampton, VA I have 2 children at home 18 and 12. the 18 years who is a senior this year was just sent back to us after being in a school and she is special needs and needs hand on care and cannot be left alone. My youngest is doing great. My husband has been out of work Since February and things are beginning to snow ball and I don't know where else to turn. I had one local church that was pretty positive that they could help but, I have left multiple voicemails and they are not returning any of my calls. I really don't want to put out on the street and I am begging for someone to help me. My property manager suggested I reach out. Thank you in advance for you time and consideration.
