I have had back issues for a while and have missed work and am struggling in other ways. I hurt myself at work and made it worse at home. Now I got behind on my bills. The utilities in my home or behind and I have 7 days to get back on track, and I am almost struggling with missed work and paying my other expenses. I owe a payment this week on my cable for my TV and utilities which will be hard for me to make in my current condition.

Turn off the cable if can't afford it. It is a want. If you want a cheaper option, then look into alternatives, even including steaming services. Find them here. https://www.needhelppayingbills.com/htm ... le_tv.html

Hello, I am looking for help with my water bill. I am low income and disabled and have missed work. My engine went on my van, and I had to get it fixed, so I got behind on my utility bills. I caught up on electric, have a payment agreement with my gas company, but I am 1345.00 behind on my water bill. I can come up with 200.00 the end of this month, but when I called to ask if I could make a payment arrangement, I was told that most likely I will have to come up with a substantial first payment.
I am not going to be able to come up with more than 200.00 due to my missed work. Even 200.00 is going to be hard, because my car is again in need of repairs and due for inspection this month, but I'm very afraid my water is going to get shut off. Do you know of any agencies that may be able to help me? Catholic Charities cannot because I get Section 8, so because I already have some forms of assistance, they said no. Puerto African Action Board doesn't work with Middlesex Water Company. I don't know who else to ask. Please, if you can help me, call me or email me back. Thank you.

We will not call or email you back. But we will give you ideas on how to call in New Orleans for water bill help, and find them here. https://www.needhelppayingbills.com/htm ... sista.html
As there are payment plans, financial assistance programs, and other resources to try. And since you are disabled, then also try SSI.
