Everyone that posts here I need to know your state and/or county. Assistance programs are local. If I do not have specific information then my advice is just general.
So look into assistance programs from your utility company if your power was disconnected. More information is here.

If you have 2 small children they may know of some government programs or options for you.

I recently lost my job of 5 years due to the flower shop is no longer in business. The owner was forced to close permanently. I'm a single mom of two girls. I receive no financial support for my children. I do not qualify for unemployment, as well. I am in need of emergency assistance with my December and possibly January rent and gas/electric bill. I have a notice from my apartment complex to pay or quit for December 2014. I have used my last extension for my utility electric bill and it must be paid by 6/30/2015. I have been unemployed since November 2014 and I am activity seeking employment. I appreciate any help, if possible. Thank you.

Yes, I believe that I may have sent an email to this organization before I'm not sure. It's just I'm on physical disability and I'm 57 years old. I've been divorced for 15 years. I live alone and I really don't know how to get or ask for help.
I'm on a fixed income because of SSDI. I have CMT - it's muscular dystrophy. I recently had my youngest daughter and four children staying with me and she didn't have an income so I had to buy things or necessities for them all. I then got way behind on my bills.
Then I started having my power discontinued even though I was paying them as much as I possibly could. To make matters worse because each time it's was discontinuity that require a unreasonable amount to have my service turned on. All together I've noticed my charges of reconnect are way more than my actual bill. It's caused me to stay stressed so much more which only makes my condition unbearable pain. At the present my electric bill is pass due because my bill is more than I have coming in I don't know what to do.
