We are broke

Postby Grinder » Sun Feb 14, 2016 11:12 am

Hi I'm a single mom with 4 kids. We were currently just homeless for a month. And doing that we went broke. I need some help paying a couple bills this month that are last due. Please if you could help me. I owe around $700.
So I’m 100.00 dollars short on my rent, I’m looking for any help I may be able to get this is a result of cut hours but that’s all taken care of. My rent and other food bills and health care is due no later than the 5th on every month. I have never had an issue before this paying my rent and have never been broke. If you can help by pointing me in the right direction please and thank you :):

Flat broke and need help with rent. I lost my job and I just get SSI for my daughter. My car broke down and I try get that fix then had to get another car so I went broke trying to get Christmas and stuff for my kids. I am just trying to get back on track. We just need help this one time. This is my first time, and I just hope I'm doing this right.

Hello,
I am from New Jersey.
My financial issue, fortunately is very simple, unfortunately is very serious. My fiancé just recently started a new job in the hopes of receiving more money, and I am still in the interviewing process with several places, so we are currently still waiting on our first paychecks and are completely flat broke. We were working previously, but lost our jobs and were paying bills with a quarterly stipend he receives, as with our minimum wage jobs we have never been able to cover important expenses. However, our most recent August-October statement was too small, so we could pay August-September, and have absolutely nothing for October, as we had to make $1000 last 3 months after rent was paid. We have been staying afloat by paying our rent as many months in advance as we can, and keeping up with the overdue balance on our cable and electric. However, now that we are behind due to the stipend, these past due balances have turned into shutoff notices. We have until tomorrow to pay our internet, and if we lose that I have no way to correspond with potential employers, I already shut off my cell phone to save money and have been making calls over Wi-Fi. We have until the second of October for our power to be shut off, which may result in an eviction regardless, and we have until the 15th at the latest to pay our rent.
If you’re wondering why it appears we put everything off until the last minute, my fiancé has been in and out of the hospital all month with kidney stones which most recently turned into a kidney infection as of this morning; he’s already missed work at his new job as well, and on most days, is incapacitated. The stress of having to do everything by myself because of this has put me in a depression that I don’t have health insurance to see anyone to help me with, but that’s neither here nor there, and not part of the reason I’m contacting you. My point is simply that I’m working through it the best that I can, but simple things like focusing on a task are harder than they should be.
Here is why I said my issue is serious but simple, in addition to being flat broke. If we can stay afloat until November’s quarterly statement, we will hopefully be able to live comfortably again, but we will at least be guaranteed to be able to pay back any financial assistance we receive. I hope to hear from you very soon, as this is rather urgent, and any advice or guidance you can provide is appreciated more than you could know.
Thank you.

You mention cash and and health insurance? If so, try TANF or Medicaid in New Jersey. They are part of the NJ public assistance programs. There are several that may help you and your finace as he waits for the checks from that new job. You also mentioned saving money...great or you! Working hard and saving....

I am a 49 year old female that is on Disability and I am having a very hard time getting by the past few months due to unexpected medical expenses, dental expenses and other expenses. I have 2 daughters, and we are in desperate need of assistance in many ways. I have a power bill that is due by April 15, 2019 for $542.04 by 5:00pm or our power will be cut off, my water bill is 2 months past due and is $144.78, my Direct TV bill is past due for $98.45...The only reason I would even ask for funds for a TV, is the fact that I home school one of my daughters and we use the History channel and 4 others for schooling.
I am in desperate need to have someone repair my septic tank, or flush it out, for I have two large wholes in my backyard right next to my deck and sewage has been coming out for several months and it smells horrible and I am afraid that it has gone to long without repair that it might start backing up into our home. I am also very worried about my older model car that is past due by 50,000 miles for a new timing belt, the mechanic stated that he would drive as little as possible because if it breaks it will lock my engine up and it will require a new engine...he stated that he could put a new timing belt on and tune it up for the first time for around $870.
I worked in Banking Management for Compass Bank for 17 years before becoming disabled to the point of not being able to perform my job effectively. As of January 12, 2019 I am completely broke, with my checking account being overdrawn by $284.21 and do not even have gas money to get my daughter to school for the whole week and no money for groceries or medicine.
I have exhausted every resource in my community as well as other nonprofit agencies with no success. Living this way has really effected my 2 daughters and our family relationship as a whole. They both worry constantly about money issues. I just need some kind and caring person or organization to step in a help us get back on our feet. I have worked since the day I turned 16 years old and have always been independent until I began having serious health issues. I have documentation to back up everything that I have stated and am in need of, this is just a half of what I truly need, but I do not want to be greedy, so I am asking for assistance for the highest priorities that cannot go much longer without causing me a great deal more. I thank you for your time and consideration. May God guide your heart to assist me and my family. Sincerely,
