I just don't know what to do

Post by miss33ti » Mon Apr 19, 2010 10:00 pm

I live in Lake Charles, La. and really need some help. I'm employed but my husband lost his job and with rent, utilities, etc... we are hardly getting by. What's worse, our only mode of transportation is caput and we've been renting a vehicle. This has killed our finances. Are there any grants in my area that can help with the purchase of another vehicle. Ways to Work is not available in our parish (Calcasieu). Any helpful info would be greatly appreciated. :cry:

Here is a listing of dozens of charities, non-profits, and other organizations in Sacramento. Some will have housing and rent programs, and money to pay first months rent or security deposits. These will also be great places to call and just ask if they have any advice. For example, one is Sacramento Area Emergency Housing Center (916) 455-2160 They offer a rent program and emergency funds.

Hello,

First I hope this is not a scam. I am in desperate need for temporary help. I am 53 and have never asked for help in my life. I am a nurse and work full time. I am looking for a part time job to help myself. I am behind on March's rent. I have a power bill that will be due in early May for $343.00. I about to lose everything. I do not use credit cards and am not a shopper. I am simply having hard times. I am paying the IRS which is putting me behind but I have to pay them. I do not want to be homeless, on welfare and food stamps. I just need some emergency help and would be willing to pay it back as soon as I have another job. If you can give me any information or help, please let me know. I am desperate. If this is a pay day loan company, please disregard this.

Nurses make good money in Maryland. If you are working full time as you say, why do you need a grant then? is it poor budgeting or some other concern you have. In either case, a community action agency in your region may be the best resource for you. They not only offer advice on such things as credit counseling, but they may be able to help you apply for grants for that rent or offer tips on dealing with the IRS. Find the services from Maryland community action agencies.
