Community action in Rhode Island out of funds

Postby Boehner » Sat Jan 25, 2014 5:30 pm

Hello,
I am a resident of East Providence, Rhode Island.
I am having extreme difficulty in paying my water bill and am extremely behind.
I was wondering if you know of any way I can get assistance for this.
I have contacted my Community Action and they do not assist with water only gas and electric, which I am already getting help with. I also need help with rent and medicines.
Please let me know of any place I can get assistance for my water bill.

I am helping my brother.
Jim had a very tough last 6 months. He was let go from his job in Providence on August 1 due to miss communication when he called in sick for work. They said he did not call in so they replaced him. He has been searching for a job. Lives with a friend, that why he still has a place to sleep. Today the power was shut off for no payment.
Jim has a job offer but he must pass his CDL drivers test, which cost $300 to get your number & rent the truck. No job, no unemployment benefits.
Now he is really in trouble as his phone bill is due in a few days, 6 months behind in his rent, & now the power is off.
Jim is 61 years old, has diabetes, & has limited
Mobility. He is a driver by trade.
Jim needs the power turned on, $40 for his phone, medical card so he can get his medications & $300 so he can get his CDL and begin work ASAP. He currently receives $190 for food, but that is all.
Can you help? Please call me.

There are other places to try in Rhode Island for help...not just community action. Find a list of city and country resources here.

As far as CDL test, maybe the government offers some aid or low cost loans too. Check with a job center.
