Lost money gambling

Post by ceueller » Sun Mar 27, 2016 8:45 am

I'm recently in a tough situation, as my dad lost his money gambling at a casino. I need help paying my bills before we lose our home and my vehicle has been repossessed. I have no way to work or to take my kids to school. My father wasted his money at the casino and left us all to fall. My job does not nearly to make enough to pay off my debts or help him repay his gambling loses. Please help the only contact I have is with Wi-Fi. My phones out and everything is going. Electric is hanging on. Please help ASAP.

Often the Salvation Army provides help for people battling addiction. While it is normally for drug and/or alcohol abuse, maybe gambling can be covered too. So maybe they can help your dad get help. At the same time, they are also a place for some financial help. They can give you food, maybe some money for the bills, and get you into a safe living environment. As people with gambling addictions, if they lose everything, may be very unstable and/or even dangerous going down a life of crime, etc. Here is information on the Salvation Army programs. http://www.needhelppayingbills.com/html ... assis.html

Good evening to whom it my concern,
      My name is David, father of 3 boys, 3, 8, and 14.  I am married, self-employed, wife works a local casino job. But I gambled and low some money. Between mortgage, 2 car payments, and life in general, we as a family unit are struggling this year.
I am requesting information about assistance with gift programs for my children. Angel tree or something. I don’t want them to go without. I know it’s about more than gifts, and I do try and instill this in them. But one without gifts I know will be tough on them.
Any leads or information would be greatly appreciated. I may be too late this year. Normally we do simply fine, but life has thrown a lot of curve balls lately due to the gambling money lost.
Thank you for your time it is greatly appreciated!
Respectfully,
DAVID

My name is Brittanie, I am a mother of three boys ages 7, 5 and 4. A gambling situation occurred recently in my life that resulted in me losing my home and everything in it and we lost money gambling. I am currently staying with family and seeking employment. My family struggles financially and my children need beds badly. I am starting over completely.  I am desperately seeking direction of any resources that might possibly help with bedding and clothing.  Any help or advice you can give me would greatly be appreciated!! Thank you and God bless.
