Programs for single mothers

Post by LinaS » Fri May 20, 2011 11:28 pm

I am a single mother of five children, I have become quite behind on some of my bills since my injuries and can no longer work. The most important one in my water bill, I owe $426.00 and I am about to be disconnected, I am also behind on my rent but landlord is understanding and is working with me. I really need help with my water bill it would greatly be appreciated! I'm trying to move into this wonderful apt i can pay the rent but the application fee is $45 and the deposit is 100 dollars. It has to be paid in two separate money orders or checks and the final price for them to hold it for you is $299.00. Can you or know of a program for mothers or maybe some type of grants that can help me. All i need is help to get this apt so my kids can have a place to call home. Can you help me please

I think what many people think is out there, the so called "free grants" and cash, just really do not exist. Most so called grants are targeted at qualified low to moderate income people, many with children, etc. Like water bills and the disconnection you refer too. There are really grants to pay it. You can call your water company, and ask about any financial assistance programs they offer, maybe a payment plan, or some type of water arreages arrangement. Also, trying to move and getting money for that. Call your local community action agency for that need and see what they say. But there are really grant programs for single mothers. However, read more on Grants here.

My eight year old special needs son and 14 year old daughter and myself have been abandoned by their father, my husband. We are four, and going on five months behind on our rent. Our landlord is wanting us out. I don't have the money to move out and into a place. Our natural gas was disconnected back in April. We have no hot water,and we cannot use the stove. I do work as a school bus driver. The lack of financial support has really caused a hardship for my children and I. We really need help.

Are you getting child support? Until that kicks in from the deadbeat father/husband, look into the various Fairfield County agencies that offer rent help, homeless prevention, and other financial support for kids and others.

That is quite a list of needs. You want want to look into some public or government aid while you go through this process. If you decide to do that, then you can read more on all of our state, federal, and local government assistance programs and services. Many states have specific programs that focus on the disabled too, so you may get prioritized for help.

I am behind inn paying my rent and CPS bills in San Jose. I am currently unemployed because i was a cosmetology student. I finished school and i will be talking my state board test to receive my license to be able to work. My fiancé is currently in jail. He was the one that paid the bills while i won’t to school. So with him gone i have done what i can by selling anything of value that i owned but now I am at the ends of my rapidly fraying rope. The locks were changed and I am facing eviction next. I sign still looking for part time work because it will take about 3 to 4 weeks till I receive my license in the mail. I owe 1200.90$ in rent and 324.95$ in other delinquent charges. Please me, I don't know what to do.

I am dating a girl and I noticed that she is a single mother and was doing everything on her own. She has been trying to work and make money to come out of the debt that she is in and she has been going down further. Her son is blind and she gets SSI for him that’s $430. She also gets housing assistance paying rent @ $199 a month, but in December that all will change. Her rent is going go up to $540 a month because they say she makes $1300 a month. and that isn't true. she can barely get by. Hell half the time she doesn't even eat. She doesn't do drugs or smoke or anything. She wakes up every morning and bust her butt to work and yet she can't get ahead. Is there anything anyone can do, its not like she don't want to pay or can't but it's just too high right now for her. Please she needs a hand, there is no one there to help and she’s a sweet woman and a damn good mother. Thank You for your time and anything you can do or assist her in she and I would be grateful.

Well, you should be worrying about Christmas if you can't even pay the bills or rent. You need to get priorities in place. But there are some different places to try in Biloxi for help, and some churches or charities may have funds for those costs. Find more details on who to call for the Biloxi and Harrison County programs.

To whom it may concern,
I am a newly divorced single parent with a 6 year old daughter. I would like to see if there is any way I could get some assistance with our rent and possibly our electric bill. I am in between jobs due to knee surgery and found out my last check I will get is going to be less than half of what it usually is. I appreciate your time and for any temporary assistance my daughter and myself may get.
sincerely,
