Laid off and Desperately need money for rent

Post by kellie » Mon Dec 28, 2009 9:04 pm

My fiance lost his job at the same time I was laid off, we cant take conventional loans, unemployment isnt enough to cover rent and utilities. The phone bill is high and we cant just let it get shut off either, not when you need it on to get calls from potential jobs I am looking for help with 130.00 in back rent for December still owed(which I got an evict notice on) and the 436.00 monthly amount due on the 1st of January. The agencies in Michigan have not helped me either funds depleted and the fact they dont help people as well if you dont have children. The church I've had help from once before can only help every six months. Is anyone out there who can help me in any way? If you can help, I will give you exact address and phone number to landlord at Apt. complex for the transaction.
Thank you,
Kellie in Michigan

Try the Homeless Prevention and Rapid Re-housing Program (HPRP). Here is some info on it. However, your best bet is to contact your local community action agency and ask if they offer this program. It provides rent funds that can last anywhere from a few months up to 18 months. They also have money for utility bills from it, and the program was created from the federal government stimulus program.

Try this for assistance with housing expenses, rent, and cash grants in Mississippi. We do have information on both dental and medical bills too, so look into consolidation and other ways to tackle those expenses first. They of course may be able to get back on track with rent or other bills. Even though were terminated from a shelter, anyway to apply for other state programs, or charity housing programs like Salvation Army or Catholic Charities in Mississippi? Here are the Mississippi assistance programs for you.

I just received my dispossessor warrant. I don't have the money to pay the rent at this time. I've gone on my third interview after being laid off. I'm told the decision would be made today or tomorrow and training will start next week. I will be evicted by that time will someone help me. Rent is $692 excluding water which is 54.00. Then there is the late fee of $125.00 and the filing fee of $200 total $1071.59. Salvation army issued a check for $200 to my subdivision. So the $200 should be waived. Please can you help me or please me with someone that can. My daughter is 1 month shy of graduating high school, and I would like to live here and not on the streets when this happens. Thank you.

My family is moments away from being homeless. Our last apartment of 4 years, was lost to foreclosure and we were left scampering for a place to live. My Mother offered to let us stay with her for a short period, my stepfather is against this. Our time here is almost over, I am applying for disability as was laid off due to back issues. But my wife works full time, twelve dollars an hour. Any advice would be appreciated.

Hello, I live in Hampton VA, and I'm seeking assistance for myself and grandmother. First for myself.
I've been in need of housing assistance for 2 years now, before that I've been on section 8 list in Hampton VA, since 20010. I’ve always wrote. They when I was trying to check on my status, or if anything concerning my case had changed. Though I was always told that the list is closed, or I was not next on the list. So I live with my grandma and she is elderly. She has owned her home for over 30 years and certain things need repairs But she don’t have finances she needs. I saw that on your site you all help people get repairs so that their home will be safe and in good living condition. If you. Can assistance us or know who may, please email back on either details. I'd greatly appreciate the assistance. Thank you for your time.

If you were laid off, your chances of getting rent help are slim. That is unless you have a serious job prospect. As if you do not have income, a charity will be hesitant to assist as what will you do the following months? How will you pay other bills?
Anyhow, you can try a case manager to apply. We have details on programs that may assist you all over our site. A good starting point is here, and read rent help for the unemployed..

I am currently 38 weeks pregnant and not working and Desperate. My boyfriend who has been our biggest provider just lost his job. Right before he lost his job we had a shut off notice for electric. By calling them and letting them in on what's going on financially with me not able to work they gave an extension. Now he has completely lost his job and now we do not have our Rent money and Desperately need help. Our landlord has giving us to the 18th of November to get it together but we are not able to get it in time. My boyfriend is waiting on multiple jobs to call back stating that he can start (waiting on back ground check, which is completely clean) but it still takes a while to come back. And I'm so scared we're not going to have a home to bring our newborn home too.
