Vietnamese immigrant

Post by Coastal » Tue Oct 15, 2019 9:27 am

Dear Friends,
For the sake of confidentiality, I'm using first name only. But I'm casting a wide net to individuals who might be able to help, and if this includes you, please contact me by email or phone.
David is a 50 year-old individual, born in Vietnam, who moved to the U.S with his family at the end of the Vietnam War. For most of his life he has held steady employment working as an arts editor in NYC, and different managerial positions in North Carolina.
In April his father died at the age of 95. Around the same time the company where he worked in a managerial role was downsizing, so his position was terminated. However, as a dutiful son he felt obligated to both pay for his father's funeral and the means for his body to be returned to Vietnam and buried. This combination of unfortunate events stripped him financially.
David, who is a Vietnamese immigrant, feels confident that he will secure a job by the end of the month if his car is not repossessed due to inabilities to cover the monthly payments. He lives in Waterville, Vermont, but has traveled between Barre and St. Albans seeking employment.
Along with prayer, his immediate needs are maintaining reliable transportation during his job search and beyond and connecting him to people or places who might be interested in hiring him, an immigrant from Vietnam.
Your prayers for David will be appreciated. We prayed together before he left my office. But if you think you might be able to assist him further, please call or email me.

Hello, I help my youngest son with his rent and food as we are immigrants needing help.  It leaves nothing for me, a Vietnamese immigrant. I am being evicted.  I need gas money to move my things.  I have a place that I can stay but need tires to get there. I am losing my storage and it makes things horrible because that’s all I have left. Please help.

Help please!  Although this website has been helpful to Vietnamese immigrants like me. We live in Columbiana county Ohio. I'm looking for rent assistance and the program that I read about near us was called HPP?  But I cannot seem to find a phone number or location for it. All the places I've inquired about this program don't seem to know what I'm talking about. Please help. Time is getting away from us. My husband and I are both working part time right now, but for about 5 months my husband was unemployed and since then, we cannot get caught up. Thanks so much for your time.
