New Port Richey is in Pasco County. Here is information on some aid agencies to contact for help with bills and expenses, including rental and electric. One option is Pasco County Human Services (phone number (727) 834-3297). For rent help try the Florida government DCF - Emergency Financial Assistance for Housing and Rental Program, and more info is here.

I am a temporarily disabled mother of 2 and wife. We are a family of 4 living in a 2 bedroom apartment in Rocklin, CA. Due to circumstances beyond my control, I was placed on a forced medical leave of absence last week. We have been struggling to survive ever since. Unfortunately temporary state disability and my husband working 2 jobs, is still not enough to make ends meet. We are in dire straights today.
Three days ago we were served a 3 day notice from our apartment complex because we were unable to pay the rent. They will file for eviction at the end of business today. The resources we thought we had available did not come through. I have been to the Human Services office and been denied help because we apparently make too much and have a car so therefore are disqualified. I've contacted many resource agencies, churches and charities but no one has anything to spare at this time. I even applied for a loan against my retirement plan but it has still not been approved nor will not be available in time to save us. I can't sleep. I'm afraid that if the eviction gets filed or if they turn off the utilities, no one will rent to us in the future. Besides that, my back can't handle another move. I am reaching out in desperation at this point to plead with anyone out there who may have any help for us today. We are praying for a miracle. Please contact me via email or phone with any help.

Well, all agencies, churches, and government programs have limited funding...which should not even need to be said. Of course money is not unlimited. But we do have tons of agencies listed for Placer County, so maybe there are some you have not tried. Some of them are even in Rocklin too, so call around and see if they can help. Find Placer County programs for financial help.

I am in need of Rental assistance. My Landlord is very kind and has let me stay here for a few months free while I fixed my car and got back to work. Unfortunately I cannot catch up on my rent for anything. I’ve been giving my landlord almost my whole check and saving enough for gas to get to work and my daughter to school. Any kind of assistance would help! I am $3,000 behind my rent, which is $600 a month plus I have a utility bill. Please get back to me with a response. Thank you so much!

I and domestic partner. We are both seniors. I'm 59 and he is 61. I have proof of the domestic partner. But we are living in a 4 bedroom, where I also took care of my parents whom have left us last year. I was caregiver for them. Now that they have left, the rent of $1800 is very hard. I only received $776 for now. David receives 817. But how does gas, light, food, and cell bills pay for this? Can you help with finding us a 2 bedroom please? I know that if I had this my photography would be much success. HELP!
