Me, my wife and our daughter just moved out from taking care of her mom and dads place. It finnally feels great to be out on our own again except for one problem that we are now having to face a hard time with. We are unable to turn our gas on. Due to a previous bill that we was not aware that we owed on... Please if any kind of assistance for help would be muchly appreciated if not for me than atleast my wife and child. Gas is the healthy way to cook something for them to eat. Cause microwavable meals are not cutting it any longer. So please help, thank you.

For anyone that needs help with utility bills, always post your state, and also ideally your utility company name. In the meantime, this is probable my favorite source for information for utility bills utilitybillassistance.com
It provides energy and bill assistance programs

My wife and I are currently unemployed and our electric bill is well overdue for a least $840, and since there is not enough income coming in to pay the rent and electric, I was searching for immediate assistance that could help my family keep the lights on. It is very hot here in throughout the State of SC and we have our 22 month old grand-daughter living with us now and we need help very soon before the 2nd of December to help with keeping the lights on and until I find and steady job to assist us in taking care of our bills. Times are very hard and no one doesn't plan not to pay their bills. We're just going through some rough times as everyone is in this country and really can use some help assistance that can point us in the right direction please!

You maybe can try the crisis LIHEAP program if you need imemdiate help. In some cases, qualified clients can get cash or some type of grant in a matter of days. Note that funding is limtied though, and many people will be denied. But it may be worth a shot for you. Also, it would only pay a small dollar of any electric bills you owe. Find more details on the LIHEAP program in South Carolina.
