about to be homeless

Post by daryllmitchell » Wed Jun 02, 2010 11:22 pm

Greetings: My nane is Daryll and i live in Long Beach California. My job that I had for 14 years stopped March of this year. This is the first time in my 50 years of living that I have no job or money and this feeling of hopelessness. My rent is due on the fifth and today is the second so I have a couple days before I have to leave. I need one months help of 700 dollars. I hope to start working next week with labor ready agency. Please help me

Try some of these community action organizations and non-profit groups in Los Angeles.
Center for Community and Family Services, Inc. (626) 795-7990
Los Angeles County Community Action Agency (562) 908-3096
City of Los Angeles Community Development Dept. (213) 744-9700
All of these agencies should either offer rent help, or can redriect you to who can help.
Here is another link for more information on California assistance programs.

We have a resource that focuses just on Miami rent assistance programs and agencies. There are several places that focus on housing, rental, and eviction prevention in Miami Dade area. Call one or more of these non-profits for help and information. For example, some options include Housing Assistance Payment (HAP) (305) 416-2080, which is the local Public Housing Agency, as well as places like the Miami Dade County Homeless Trust (305) 375-1490 has eviction prevention programs and services.

You did not post your county, so not much we do do other than provide general advice on rent help. Time and time again we ask people to post their state/county as assistance programs are mostly local. So you are just left with the general link on rental assistance.

I am in fear of becoming homeless. I am a mover and I get paid in cash. Work is very very slow and I am hungry usually always cause I have no money for food. I have a drivers license but I don't have a car which is a big problem in getting around. At the present time I am staying with a friend but might have to leave cause I can not afford rent month to month. Please help with some info. I live in Aurora, IL.

Can you pay any money to your friend? Would they really kick you out so homeless? Regardless, here is information on some agencies in (use this link) Aurora Illinois that can offer housing assistance, emergency rent help, and other aid. Call organizations like the Lazarus House at (630) 587-2144 or the local Salvation Army agency, and call at 630-377-2769.

The government has a homeless / rehousing program. So people who are about to be evicted, or who are now homeless, may be able to get financial support from it. The program is listed here.

Mostly they are run by the Salvation Army or community action agency, so those are the best places to call for applications to it.

I need assistance with this month's rent. I am currently on maternity leave and I am going back to work next week. Unfortunately I am facing an eviction if I cannot pay within the next few days. Please help! I have a newborn baby boy and a two year old and we have no where to go if we get evicted. I can't be homeless with a newborn child. That would be terrible. I live in White Plains NY. I will be back on my feet next month but I just need help this one time. Thank you so very much!

Family of 4 with 2 children under 18 on aid monthly income of $608.00 who is is in danger of becoming homeless also currently because of very unique situation is going without water. Please let me know if can help on any way with information or otherwise.

I have a problem. I am in the process of trying to get disability. My only problem is that I am homeless now since I can't work. My fiancée stays at fresh start. He has a job but fresh start takes most of his check so we aren't able to save money or it will take forever to get the apartment we got approved for its six hundred dollars to move in. Rent a month is for hundred all bills paid if you could help I would gladly appreciate it. Please let me know. I don't know what else to do.
