Hello, I was wondering if I could get some assistance with food, electric bill and rent. I worked a commission job and not able to barely eat or survive. I just relocated back to GA 6 months and living in my car until last month. I now have own apartment and car but not able to buy food. I live in Clarkston GA. Can you assist me please?

Hello, I am a 24 year old single mother to a four year old little boy named. I Have a bi weekly income of $200. We have recently moved in to our own apartment and based on income my rent is $31 per week. I have paid it in full already this month, I went to Georgia Power and paid my light Friday the amount of $44.
I was so excited this was my first time paying my own bill as I have lived with my grandparents since I was 17. Well I come home Friday afternoon and my lights are off. I called Georgia power and they said my name was added to an account two or three years back to an address I have never been at.
I've never had my own light until now and they said that there's nothing they can do about it as this happens sometimes and my light are terminated until I can pay the balance of $495. I have no idea what to do and I am asking for your help please. I have no idea what to do. I am so lost in this situation. I have no money right now after rent $31, the $44 on the lights, Christmas and his Birthday. I have mentally broken down and am trying to find help in anyway possible. Please Help Me!!!

If you have multiple needs (but a focus in the bills owed to Georgia Power) try a non-profit community action agency. Then ask them about LIHEAP for those energy bills. But if you income is $200 every 2 weeks, you are in some serious trouble. You need to increase the income, get a job (and there are plenty in Georgia) and take drastic action. Live with a roommate/friends/family too. Good luck.

I am unemployed been trying to find a job. I have gotten nowhere. I live in an apartment in Hiram GA with my son who is 27 and disabled from a brain tumor previously. We are trying our best but I can't seem to find a job. I need to know where I can get help with food and paying rent. Please let me know something. I feel like I am going crazy. Thanks.

There are agencies that cover Lincoln Georgia and the eastern part of the state. But that is some list of needs. Keep trying to work with Georgia power as your pursue other options as well, such as Medicaid which can take time. The list of programs is here. http://www.needhelppayingbills.com/html ... e_pro.html
As far as transportation, as an employment or community action agency in your town. Some have car programs, or can tell you where to get some low cost loans....if your credit justifies it.

Hi, I'm moving to Blairsville, GA and would like any information on programs that could help me with my rent, utility, and heating costs. I am a disabled person on social security that has a limited income. I walk with a cane and sometimes require a wheelchair. I also require an assistance dog and sometimes need an aide. Thank you so much for your help.
I's easier for me to talk on the phone and write information down than get internet access on my phone right now. Thank you again. God bless.
Sincerely,

BicycleRider

I have 2 daughters 4 and 8. I just wanted assistance to get back on my feet and help to learn how to maintain on my own as a single mother.
My address is Mableton GA 30126.

If you need gas, electric, and rent help, that is a lot. There are charities in your region. Try the financial assistance programs in Cobb County for support. There are tons of them available. But your income may be too high for cash aid in Georgia.

You have more than just a church to try. Also try a job center for employment needs.

I live at Stone Mountain, Georgia. I have been borrowing money to buy Food, and pay my utility bills. I am on disability and finding it very hard to take care of myself. Everything is so expensive. I am trying hard to live without all the worries of paying for simple cost of living expenses. If I didn't have so many medical expenses, and I could get assistance with my utility bills, I feel that I could make it. Thanking you in advance for any help that you can give me.
