Getting out of jail and also disabled

Post by The Monster » Fri Mar 18, 2016 8:41 am

My husband recently went to jail and I am permanently disabled. I am trying to keep us afloat, but with
My being behind already because of being unprepared, it is overwhelming. I have a 13 year old and there has been too much stress and I need to get stable for his sake. I owe rent for this month and 100.00 for last month. My car also broke which has had me very upset and unable to get around. If there is any direction that you can point me in to get back on track so I may be able to set a budget.

I am writing you all because I have tried to get help from the state but unfortunately they weren't willing to help right now. We are drowning in bills with a toddler and a baby on the way and the baby daddy just got out of jail with a disability. We would even just take help with food. But truthfully we got a letter from our apartment saying we need to pay 1200$ or get evicted. We haven't skipped payments just been paying late because of we aren't bringing in money like before as the dad is in jail - until now which he just gout out. Out of the 1200 we should have the 800 which is our Novembers rent. If you could read this and get back with us I would appreciate it. Thank you.

Since you are in Wake County, there are homeless prevention programs in Raleigh. Some of them do focus on (1) the disabled and/or (2) people leaving jail.
As far as disabled, maybe also apply for SSI.
Most jail also offer referrals (or at least pamphlets) to people leaving on where to go for support services. Or try the social services department.
