I am 28 years old. I lost my job about a month ago and also at the same time had to move to my dads who wants rent for me to stay here also lets my mother stay who is disabled. They have been divorced since I was seven. He just was helping keep her out of nursing homes however has made it clear our time here is coming to a end.
I cant afford rent and she is his ex-wife. I was usually the one who helped my mom financially when she ran out of funds toward end of the month however. I cant now I was able to find a job housekeeping at a hotel but after them holding the first pay check by the timber reserve it next Friday it will be six weeks with no income. I have no idea how to find gas money to get to work.
I have done every little job I can be find clearing someone’s house or office in Dallas or asked family members but the help has ran out and I still don’t have a pay check but I have been working. My insurance is about to be canceled and my mom is supposed to pay the light bill. But it is a month behind but we have been able to keep them on.
I have applied for food stamps but still pending she gets 49 a month my phone which to most isn’t that important is about to be turned off but to me it is important. The tires on my vehicle or bald and I don’t know when one could blow when I finally do get my pay check it will be about 200$ but I don’t know how I am going to make it the next week getting to work.
I am sorry because I know there are people with children worse off than I but I am glad I do not have children living in situation with me. I’ve been eating the 1.50$ deal from gas station hot dog and a drink for meals and I know there are people that have no food and feel bad for even asking for help but I am scared because I have never not known how I was going to get to work.
I had to miss today but my brother did have a extra 10$ he gave me when he got home so I will be able to go tomorrow. Most programs are for people with children and I understand but if there is any thing anyone can do to help me just to get back on my feet and where I can start being there for my mother again. We were in a car accident when I was 12 she has a traumatic brain injury basically injuries like a stroke victim and I have always been able to help her and now I cant even help myself. So if there is anything anyone can do to help me I would appreciate it more than words can say and I will find a way to give back because maybe there will be someone in my shoes one day and I will be able to help them.

While most charities do focus on Dallas County families with children, even single adults may find some resources though. But your needs are extensive. You asked for gas money, which is very rare but possible. Maybe ask a church for a voucher. Also there are food pantries you can use too instead of eating those hot dogs! They normally have free groceries or even serve meals. But here is an extensive list, and read Dallas County assistance programs.
