We are in a financial emergency. We are a family of 5 and with a young 4 yr old and 9 month old and very low on food. We have several bills that are close to two months behind and a couple bills (electric) and cars will be shut off and taken away if we can not make the payments. We have only enough to cover either some rent or some bills. I just started a part time job and my husband has had several interviews but we are just behind from his layoff.

The first thing you need to do is get food for you and your family. Without that everything else is meaningless. Find our listing of Denver and Colorado food banks. When you call these centers also ask about programs in your area for paying utility bills, rent, debts, and any other help you may need during your emergency period you are apparently facing. Good luck, and write back to let us know how it went.

With that diverse set of needs, such as car payments, credit cards and medications, your best bet may be a non-profit credit counseling agency. There are many in Tennessee. While we doubt they can help with phone bills and food, basically they provide counseling and advice to help you get back on track with paying your bills and addressing financial matters and issues. They really do focus in particular on credit cards debts. Learn more.

Hello,
My husband lost his job back In April and I am going to school full time. I receive $105.00/week from child support and that is all the money I have. My husband says he left a message for our local human services dept here in Fort Myers, FL as well as the 211 number, but we have not heard anything from anyone. Our current situation is as follows: We owe back rent in the amount of $2400 and are at the verge of being homeless. My husband had applied for unemployment and was supposed to hear back from an adjudicator and even with him leaving multiple messages for someone to call to give him an interview he never received a call. Our electric has already been shut off once and I luckily was able to get it turned back on with the money I had from child support. Our water is due to be shut off this coming Thursday, and I don't have enough money at this time to keep the water on. We lost our car last week due to repossession. I was only able to make a partial payment on 9/22 and that was not enough since due to my husband being out of work it has put us too far behind. So at this time we have no transportation.
My husband has been actively looking for work but has not had much luck. He does computer work and there isn't a whole lot of jobs for that available at this time. He has even applied at places like Home Depot and Lowes. I have put an ad up on to see if anyone needs their house cleaned or anything that I can do part time while I am doing school. I am trying to prevent us from being homeless, so if you could please call my husband and to let us know if you may know of anyone that may be able to help us in our situation. My son and I may have a friend I can stay with for a couple of days but after that we will all be in a shelter and I would like to prevent that if possible. I have even thought about selling all of our furniture. I just don't know what to do anymore. Any help for our family would be appreciated.
Thank you,

Hello.

We live in Georgia. My mom, who is disabled on social security disability, resides with us.

I stay home with my mom since I cannot leave her alone. By doing this I am able to keep her out of a nursing home where she cannot get the one on one care that I give her. She is also very content here whereas somewhere else her mental state is fragile due to the stroke she had and the damage that it did. She can easily get upset when she is not understanding something that is said to her, frightened is probably a better word.

I have been told, though I am not sure, that there is financial assistance available for Georgia residents so that I am able to stay home with her and continue the daily care that she needs. Is there such a program available?

At this time the only income that my household has is the disability check that my mom receives. Our household suffered a tremendous hardship around February 2013 due to a personal auto accident that my husband was in. He was a oil truck driver and this has ruined his career. No trucking company will hire him. He was let go at this job due to this accident and was awarded unemployment that just recently came to an end. They are not doing extensions. He is a student now at the age of 48. He is searching for employment but his experience is very limited. It has been no easy task even getting an interview.

So, we continue to work at things the best that we can and one day we'll get there. But right now we need help and are hoping that there is some sort of assistance out there for our household. We have no children. We are planning to file for food stamps in the very near future. I am just waiting on a phone call back for a checklist of what I need to have on hand when filing and I'm hoping to be able to squeeze in the gas to make it down there.

We entered into chapter 13 in 2009. We were a part of the economic crisis that occurred in 2008. But we were able to hold onto our home. Up until February 2013, we were handling things okay. Now though we are not able to handle things at this time. We are concerned that we will lose our home. I have paperwork ready to go out in the mail on Wednesday to ask our mortgage company for an interest rate reduction due to our financial hardship. Right now the only assistance we have to look forward to is the food stamps while hoping that our interest rate can be reduced. Is there any help available to us that we might qualify for? I'm sorry for such a lengthy email. It's just very hard to say what is going on in our household in a few small paragraphs. Thank you so much for reading. I appreciate it.

Some states do help pay for home care if an immediate family member is disabled. We are not sure if Georgia does, and there are many funding restrictions and application parameters too. SSDI may also offer additional compensation as well, so call social security. Locate all of the benefits for the disabled in Georgia. Click here.

Hi, my son will be two in October. We have been homeless sine February. I am currently on MFIB, food stamps and am supposed to get child support but don't receive anything.
We have a five year no contact order against my son's father. I am working a very good job now (but it's part time) and have been approved to move into a apartment building but before they will let us move in I need to pay off my unlawful detainer from February, and come up with first/ last month and security deposit. I'm unable to use Anoka County emergency assistance until October. We have exhausted all of our personal resources. If you have any advice it would be greatly appreciated.
