I found this list on the main site government assistance programs that shows all aid, help, and assistance programs from the federal, state, and local governments. there is even a list of local charities.

Yes, turn to the government aid plans now, when need help. Your tax dollars pay for them, so use them.

Well, the job market is getting better so that is good news. We do not have jobs to offer, but we have information on finding part time work from home income, and also how to access free job training programs. A work from home job can bring in a few extra bucks, and great if your hours fluctuate too, as when home can make a few dollars. Here is info on work from home jobs. Be careful when signing up for one and do not pay fees up front without reading the fine print.

Hate to say it but good luck trying to get any help from the government. I tried calling the Intergovernmental Grants dept(St Clai County Community Agency for assistance within my state and the phone is disconnected since there have been cut backs.

WE have been having difficulty living on just my SSI since my wife lost her job. It led to our PGE being turned off. We paid PGE with out rent money and now face loosing our rental. Our record paying monthly is very good however we currently face hardship until employment is active again after 2 in a half yrs. I am being evicted due 2 the changes n my income. I am currently 2mons behind on my $650 a month payments plus I owe $200 for my electric bill. I didn't receive a month n 2wks of my cash aid so that set me back. I have 5 kids & ive tried finding programs that could help but no luck yet. Please if you can help or know where I could get help with rent assistance, please contact me asap. Thank you 4 your time.

I’m in need in moving out of my mother's home. It’s not ideal for my son and me. No washer or dryer and no working air conditioner. I’m working as a babysitter but it’s not enough to pay the bills. I’m on government assistance with insurance and food. I make roughly $500 a month and I cannot settle for a bad neighborhood for my son and for myself. If there's a program that could cover half of my rent and utilities that'll be great. I do not receive child support. I do everything on my own.

There are many government and public assistance programs, both local (such as at county), state, and federal level. We have information on most of them on the site. They include things like utility bill programs, housing and rent help, and even child care if you need it for your son. Now each public assistance program will have its own application process, so you need to take those steps and apply for aid. But there are many to choose from. Find out listing of state and other programs. Continue reading.

I'm a single mother with three boys that I have joint custody with their father. I work in home health care and recently I haven't gotten any hours at one of my jobs. I'm behind on money due to having to pay utilities and provide food for my family.
My rent is $350.00 each month and is actually do on the first but can be paid on the 5th. There isn't any way possible for me to make that payment for the month and I'm in need of a little assistance. I have $50 to my name and no one around that can afford to help. I only make $180 a week and I have other bills as well. Is there any way that I can get any government assistance? It would be greatly appreciated. If I can't pay rent then I'm not going to be able to have a place for myself or my boys to live. Please and thank you. Again I would greatly appreciate it!
You can contact me through this email if you will please.

I’m in dire need of financial help. I live in Sherman Texas and every time I call a Red Cross or Salvation army and Resale barn usually they tell me that they are either out of money or they are only helping people if its a dying emergency. Vie lost my job a couple months ago and I broke my hand and being indigent I didn’t get the surgery I needed to get it fixed.
Living in this establishment is very hard as am taking care of my son and trying to support my fiancé with the bills only ends up with tears and frustration. We need help. We are about to lose our apartment very soon and we owe everyone in the book. Everyday is a struggle and everyday that’s struggle makes me want to fight even more to get out of our situation. I want to give up but seeing my son and my fiancé keeps me pushing to strive for something better. Please help.

Sherman is a small town, but there are many public assistance programs that cover all of Texas. But you will need to continue to fight, as that is the only solution to poverty. Also, many places (such as the Salvation Army) do have limited resources like you said. But look into government aid, as that was created to help the indigent. Find more details on public benefits in Texas as well as the specifics of each service.

I have been on the phone and internet for days trying to find someone who might be able to help my family or point me in the right direction to get government aid, not a single person has emailed me back, nor called me. I am pregnant and have been unable to work due to ongoing sickness....my husband has a job but with my loss of income we have been struggling to keep up at all. Paying bills and rent late, not being able to afford gas money for our truck, and now the fact that school is starting September 3rd I am unable to get my kids school supplies and clothing. My electric is going to be shut off and I feel like a failure as a mother. I hate that I need help from government assistance, but I am also not too proud to admit it. I don't live a fabulous life and have all the extras not necessary then expect a handout at all. I am doing the best I can living check to check, trying to raise my kids with the best means I have, but I can't send them to school with no supplies and I cannot have them living without Power. If someone could call me or email me with some kind of response to how to get government financial assistance I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you so much!!
