CalWorks and rent

Post by Cuban Ted » Sun Mar 27, 2016 8:38 am

Me, my husband and our son are currently going to face eviction because we have not been able to pay rent for the past 2 months. The leasing office gave us a 3 day notice for the month of August, but they haven't given us one for this month, and I've been told that they are in the process of trying to evict us.
Our rent is usually $1677, but there is a $75 late fee, so right now it’s $1752 for August, and then again for September, totaling to $3504 that we are behind in paying. Currently, we just got signed up for CalWORKS and Calfresh, so we aren't making a lot. We are really trying to avoid getting evicted, and we don't know what to do from here, or how to pay the leasing office what we owe them.

There are some state benefits from CalWorks that can be used to stop homelessness. But the applicant does need to be enrolled into it, or food stamps. It is a program that has very limited funding, but you can apply for it. More information is here. http://www.needhelppayingbills.com/html ... nce_r.html
