Rent assistance, Food stamps.....

Post by TLC3 » Wed Sep 29, 2010 4:11 pm

My 19 yr old son just had to drop his his college classes at Oklahoma community college because he hadn't received his tuition assistance. In addition to that, his father and step mother told him that he has to leave their house in one week. He has a full time job and makes $8.00/hour. He needs to find an apartment but does not have the security deposit. Plus, he could use some rental assistance and food stamps so he'll be able to eat.

He hopes to get information about college assistance so next semester he can resume taking his college courses. What assistance is available to him in OK?

Thank you for your help.

Here is information on various Oklahoma programs. Some will help with rent, security deposits, and they will provide other aid and assistance to those who need help. Some of the local county agencies should be able to help people find an apartment or other housing, and direct you to food stamp and food voucher programs. $8 an hour is not much to work with....

So you really need to get your car fixed. Providing you one month rent won't help as you will just fall behind next month again if no car. Look into programs like 1800 charity cars or opportunity cars. While they may help with car repairs, they can provide transportation so you can get back and forth to work. Oftentimes it is a "new" used car, or a low interest (or zero percent) loan so you can buy and/or finance a car for a very low price.

Family of 3. Fiance' just started work with little hours and almost minimum wage. We have a 5 year old daughter who is starting school 10-10-11. I have been diagnosed with a degenerative bone disease which requires surgery on right knee (10-18-11). Immobile and unable to work, we are in dire need of assistance with our rent and utility obligations as we are passed due on both. Any and all help will be appreciated and never forgotten.

Well, good news is working. Maybe hours can increase over time, or at least he got his foot in the door. Find information on Will County financial assistance programs and options that can help pay those heating bills, and also provide rent help. There are options like the Will County Center for Community Concerns, which can be called at 815.722.0722. They offer funds and grants to pay expenses in an emergency.

We would need much more information in order to answer that. What state, county, etc. Income? Or you can go to the main site. Use the link for rental assistance to read about programs and get phone numbers to non-profits and rent assistance programs in your state.

I am looking for organizations in Chesterfield County Virginia. My husband lost his job due to having surgery on his leg and has been unable to find employment..but actively searching. We have 5 people in our household, including 3 kids. I have a sickness too and have missed quite a bit of work and now we are behind in rent. Back to August 2011 and now court papers are being filed. Friends have been helping with food but can help so much. MY biggest problem with getting help is that everyone looks at what I make before anything which puts me over but not what I have worked. I am playing catch up on all bills to keep from going to collections but we are stuck now and not sure where to turn. A few places I found won't help bc I live in SW and not SE. Any suggestions would be helpful.

Yes, usually friends can only do so much, as I am sure their income and resources are limited too. You should be grateful they can help at all, and thankful too. Our listing of Chesterfield assistance programs may be additional options for you. Call not for profits like the Capital Area Partnership Uplifting People (CAPUP) at (804) 788-0050 or the Chesterfield Virginia Salvation Army at (804) 732-8921. Both offer a variety of assistance for rent, food, and even items such as debt counseling (or they can refer you).

Yes, working only one half of a month is not enough to cut it. The first thing you need to do is get food for your family. Luckily we have that covered by info on thousands of food pantries, charities, and distribution centers. Details are all over our primary site. Read more.
