We do have some comprehensive information on clinics, medical bills programs, government assistance, and other options. Find our listing at this link for free health care. May want to focus on the resource from that page for Non-profit organizations that can help with medical expenses and bills. You also mentioned use their jet? Is this a serious post? Also the site has information on various Indiana assistance programs, and use the nav bar on the left margin and select state and local assistance programs button.

Would like to get information on how to help my disabled sister who has pulmonary lung disease, pay her gas bill, for hot water and heating in the house. She really needs a new lung transplant. She is at risk for pneumonia if she doesn’t have heating. It’s currently turned off due to non-payment.
Please let me know the process so she can apply for assistance.

Hi, I am wanting some info and to see if you can help me and my Husband. We are living with my Mother and Father in law in New Boston Tx,  wile my husband finishes his classes for welding at the Texamarica campus which will be in August.  He can start looking for a welding job in June.  I am disabled working on my SSDI.
I am waiting on my court date, My Father in law needs to have a heart and lung transplant and may be heading to Florida in the next week or two and when they do they cannot keep the power and gas on in the home and says that we need to find a new place to go. We cannot live out of the car while he is going to school and he only has 3 1/2 months left for the lung transplant. We are hurting in a bad way.
I am not sure what to do he has sleep apnea and has to use a cpap but if we are on the streets he cannot. I am also on insulin that has to stay cold. I cannot do that in the car. Please if there is something you can do...
