Would be greatful for a hand up...will pay back

Postby mumms » Wed Oct 28, 2009 8:30 pm

My husband and I are in our 50's and have both lost our jobs in this economy, lost our home, and have no healthcare, yet we can't get assistance because we are not poor enough.....and we don't have dependents. My husband is a vet, and can't even get the health care he was promised after he served and was honorably discharged. I know that we are not alone in theis struggle and certainly don't have the corner on hardship, we just want to be able to stay in the modest rental home we have and not be homeless. We pay over 800.00 a month in perscriptions(most have no generic form) We could used a little assistance for our rent coming up, we would gladly accept this as a hand-up loan and pay back the loan no matter how long it takes. If you can assist us we would be greatful. Again we do know there are many that need help, we are not special in this, but we don't want to live in a tent, in the winter in the mountains of Washington state. We have been homeless before, and would be greatful if we didn't have to be again. Thank You

Hi. Post your state and I can send you info. I think there are programs for you. For example, your prescriptions, there are ways to get free prescription drugs from drug companies. http://www.needhelppayingbills.com/html ... drugs.html
There are other programs that may not be so income dependent as well, such as job training from community action agencies and more. However most of these are at the state level.
