My partner and I live on DHS. I am on SSDI, $1800/month. I presently pay $700/month + utilities.
We MUST to move to a location in Palm Springs where the rent may be lower/same but utilities included.
We are looking for a 1 bedroom.
Looking for 9/1/15. But our problem is we are so far behind on our rent/utilities, now we have no money to move
and we want to pay the back rent of $2200 plus security deposits. I am disabled with leukemia
and my life partner can't work until change of status is processed, in 4 months.
My landlord told me if I miss the rent for August, "We are OUT"!
So we are out, because, we are so far behind on everything, we have no money for rent.
My partner's mother had breast cancer and we were sending $$ for her treatments.
She passed away.
We need help, Please help.
We need to move.

Hi,
Not sure if this is a serious request or not, but try this for many resources in Missouri. Also, there is absolutely no way you should be paying for a wedding until you resolve that long list of financial issues you have.

I was homeless just a few days ago. A good friend decided to let me live under her roof. It was a blessing that came right in time with winter here and all. With this blessing also came sadness when I found out she was a 2 months behind in rent and her water is about to get cut off.
She has an 8 year old son and is currently disabled so she can't work. I am currently unemployed myself. I seen this web site while I was online job searching.
Being so close to the holidays I figured to swallow my pride and reach out to anyone who can assist us. She is good people and I’m know if the shoes were on the other feet she would do the same. If there is anything that can be done I we would much appreciate it. Thank you and god bless.

You can try the community action agency in Central Illinois. By now living with your friend, can't you combine resources/income to cover that rent or utility bills? Also try to apply for LIHEAP in Illinois. Those are just a couple ideas. But also try other referrals to rent programs from the Mid-Central community action agency.

Hello.
My fiancée, Bradly and I are new to Monroe and we need both rent and utility assistance. We moved here in April from Covington, La. He had been working for Dupree’s Power Washing Company up until a little more than three weeks ago. He had an accident which resulted in him totaling his company vehicle and as a result, losing his job.
He just got a job back with Premier Products but won't start until later this week.
OUR WATER WILL BE SHUT OFF ON WEDNESDAY 1/23 AND OUR POWER WILL BE SHUT OFF ON FRIDAY 1/25. And rent will be due again by the 5th of November.
Please provide me with some resources that may be able to help with rent and utilities until he has some money coming in.
