I am a mother of three small children. We are currently staying with a grandparent in Missouri, but can not stay here long. I have no job or money or family that I can go to for help. I have tried United Way but the resources I have received from them have not helped me in any way. I don't know what else to do. I need housing for my family and work to provide for them. If there are any other suggestions please send any and all details. Please, I need help.

Off of this page, which lists most Missouri assistance programs, you will be able to find resources for low income housing, help for bills, and other resources, all in addition to the United Way. It is good that you though of the United Way in Missouri, but that is not your only option.

I'm single mother with three kids in Fairfax Virginia. I was at risk of eviction & Landlord has told me if I don’t pay $500.00 a week I, along with my kids face being homeless. Do to this our water has been shut off, & I have received notice that my power will be next. The rent alone with the back rent I owed takes nearly all my pay check make it nearly impossible to buy any food much other household needs, less gas to get to work. I'm not looking for a handout; I just need a little help to make it over this hump. I don’t qualify for public assistance so I've been told. Any help or information would be great!

So you live in the Illinois region? And Champaign in particular? If so, then here are some housing programs, social services, and something called tenant based rent assistance. This resource may be able to help you.

I am a single mother of 3 children. I have been out of work since October and I am trying to find work. In the past few months my father has been helping me with my bills. However he can no longer afford to do so. I am looking for assistance in paying my electric and my rent for this month as well as help in job placement. I am a current graduate of Lincoln College and in November of 2012 received my associate’s degree in medical assisting but have yet to find a job in my field.

I live in Missouri and I lost my job in December. I've been disqualified for unemployment but have filed a request for a hearing which is scheduled for Thursday. I have no money coming in what so ever and my rent is in arrears by $2000. I need information on any resources’ you have for rental assistance so we're not evicted. We have no family to go to for help so I'm asked the state of Missouri for help so my family doesn’t end up on the street. I'm not married (so single) and have a 12 year old son. Can you help me or guide me on which way to turn?

I am trying to find my disabled sister any assistance that I can with her past due rent. She owes her landlord 500.00 for rent and will be evicted next week if she does not come up with it. My sisters 27 year old son died in a car wreck in March and the very little money my sister had, has been used paying for rides, funeral exp, and now she is due for eviction. If there is any help that you could offer to her please call and I will get her the message. She lives in Syracuse NY.

I am a single mother of one small child living in a homeless shelter in Conroe, Texas. I was able to find full time employment over three weeks ago and is finding it difficult to find any resources here. Is there any federal or any government rental assistance programs in this area? Thanks IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR TIME IN THIS MATTER.
