What state do you live in?
For rent assisitance, look into the Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program (HPRP). Contact your local community action agency, or county/city government office and ask them about this program. It can provide up 18 months of rent assistance, and other money. The stimulus fund gave it $1.5 billion for the fund as part of stimulus program.

I am staying with my boyfriends parents right now in Pennsylvania due to my financial situation. I am also pregnant and due to have my baby in 3 days. We were told yesterday that once the weekend comes we have to get out. I am looking or wondering if theres a program that will help us with first months rent and security. We have little to no money right now and are looking for a place to go.

There are agencies in Pennsylvania that can help you with paying rent, or offer money for security deposits. One option may be the Pennsylvania Homeless Assistance Program (HAP). What you want to do is contact the local community action agency/Salvation Army in your area and ask about this program. Here is more info on the programs, and use the links to find the numbers of the local salvation army/community action agencies in PA.

I am a fifty one year old female in Colorado Springs. I have filed for disability and am living on OAP (old age pension). I get $484.00 a month. They are not taking applications for housing vouchers any more here and I was told that they won't be taking them for the next 2 to 3 years. I was staying with my daughter for a few months but I had to go she was yelling at me all the time in front of my 4 year old granddaughter and it hurt so much that I had to leave. My mother is in rehab for about 30 more days and then I will have to leave here in about 2 weeks until she is stable. I can't stay with her any longer because it is a one bedroom apartment and the management won't allow other people to live here. I really don’t know what to do. I can't afford a monthly rental payment let alone pay a deposit and rent. Is there any help that you are aware of that can help me? I'm so tired of stressing over this. I"ve been stressing over this for a year now and still don't know what to. I've contacted several organizations here that are suppose to be able to help but for one reason or another I don't get it. One more thing, I have a broken leg so my mobility is limited. They always tell me to call here or there and that’s not very often an option for me. I finally got a truck about a month ago so at least I have transportation now. I only have to pay $50.00 a month payments on it. That definitely took care of one of my major problems. Any help would be so greatly appreciated.

I'm seriously in need of help. I've been living in a rental house for over a year now and there's been issues with the house itself breaking apart, water pipes, electrical wirings, and rent issues. I was agreed upon the landlord was going to fix this and that once we move in, but only minimum was fixed only. I didn’t have enough money to pay for rent this month so now I received a 3 day notice. I don't have any other ideas but to search for anything possible to help me out of my situation. I'm a single mother of 5 and 1 on the way. I can't afford to be homeless now due to my pregnancy.

I'm currently at SAHM (Stay at Home Mom) to a 3 month old & 3 year old. Home was foreclosed on & was not given any notice, besides a 24 hour not posted on my door! I've been waiting on a "cash for keys" offer as that's the only way I'll be able to move. I'm in desperate need of some help before my family & I become homeless! I've never been in this type of situation so I'm not sure where to look for immediate help. I have my disabled mother & unemployed father who just found out he has lung cancer last week living with us as well. Please help!

My rent is due and I have no means to pay it. I have been searching for a job with no luck because I'm limited to working within walking distance due to not having a car. I have some promising job leads but I just really need help getting through the next month. Please let me know what I have to do to get help in this emergency. I cannot sleep and have been praying for a miracle.

Umm, why did you need a car? Take a bus to work, or ride a bike. Many other people do. Then seek housing help. As why would someone help you if you will never be able to work. As far as your request, here are the emergency rental assistance programs.
