Oakland California homelessness

Post by Bravo » Thu Aug 14, 2014 9:17 pm

I will probably be homeless at end of week if not sooner. Only was able to send land-lord part of rent - could not pay CC bills, or utilities this month.
InnVision in Oakland will not help due to previous months income - On GA currently
even if I pay this month would be no funds on 1st. However will still be responsible for this months rent.
I do have Items That could go to a charity drive however now going to need these to pay for possible homeless shelter costs (they will be safely at a friends house).
Highest priority would be help with the credit card bills - then I could finance temporarily (not a good way but it is less payments than normal month to month costs).
I could also help charity drives if they have a computer / printer as long as I also get help (do t-shirts or other things like post peoples faces on shirts for charity).
If I can get 1 time emergency help up to $1000 it would seriously help - it won't stop homelessness but may help me get out of it faster.
Also a place to stay ASAP if it happens - My items have storage at least.

I am so stressed, my health is declining quicker. I have taken my son in each time his father abandoned him and with that, in order to keep him in the school in Oakland California he was in I had to take a new apartment. With a very high rate, but I have worked 29 years and never saw me losing my job as an option. I did in May and I am broke.
My unemployment ran out, my son left for the Navy and I am stuck with the rent and every other bill without any income. I am devastated as I never saw me in this position begging for help. I spend 12 hours a day looking for work to no avail. I am also disabled but to not want to go on disability as I am a worker and do not want to be exempt from doing so. I need some sort of temporary assistance, as I am ready to get evicted and be homeless. Please help me as my son left me with all the bills after promising he would help me.

After losing my job in October 2017, and continuing to support my younger brother (I am 60 years old) since June, I find I cannot make my August 2018 rent. I live in East Oakland, CA in order to live more closely to my daughter and her family which includes 3 young children.
Because the complex has become known as a notoriously dangerous one (you can Google Hillside apartments This is the first time in my adult life that I have experienced this type of hardship, and need 1-time assistance. Thank you.

You are homeless now? They try a Shelter in Oakland California for a place for you and your 3 children. Then work with the shelter case managers on a long term plan.
