Need to get out of this church program and live on my own

Post by Withoutyou » Fri Jan 17, 2014 7:57 pm

I had a couple questions. I recently got out of the military in June unfortunately I got a OTH discharge for a stupid mistake I made. At the time I was in my second enlistment and served 6 an a half years. After getting out I've a hard time adjusting and paying my bills due to a big income change. At the time I'm working two jobs and still having trouble supporting my self and am in danger of being homeless. I'm living at a Catholic Charity church program because I was in a huge depression stage and there helping get back on track.. They are providing me with a place to stay that I've been paying rent but am falling behind luckily there helping me and allowing me to stay. But I'm getting deeper an deeper in debt with the rent there. I pay as much as I can but it's not enough. I was wondering with a OTH if I would qualify for the housing assistance? Thank you for your time and am looking forward to hearing back from you.

I am on disability and I am trying to move out of the Iris Motel. I have the apartment to go look at today. But I need help getting my electric turned on because of a past due bill. I don't know what else I can do here. I have been live here for 18 months and it hasn't been pleasant. I will be moving as soon as I get the electric on.
I have never asked for help before I have always tried to do everything my self so this is very hard for me. If your church can help me I would be very grateful. I don't have furniture to even go into the apartment so I will be sleeping on the floor. I do have my 2 cats which keep me company. I have nerve damage and I am in a lot of pain through the day. I don't complain because I am grateful to even be alive. I moved here from Virginia and I don't have any family only my 18 year old daughter.

So the Iris Motel is run by a church? Is that what you mean? Anyway, we are not a church. We have information on them, as well as the shelters, financial aid, and other services they offer. As far as the furniture, there may be a thrift store available. But try a church for help, as they may offer the support you need.
