Car for work for money so can pay bills

Post by Rachdep1 »

I have been without a paycheck since December 15th and I am single parent. I just started a job but I don't get paid until Jan 28th. I am also a student in college..but i don't receive that money until mid-February. I am in a financial crisis. I have my car payment that is two months past due (which if i could pay one month they would work with me) and I have been forced to get two of my friends to do a payday loan for me so i could pay my rent before i got evicted. My Dad would normally help but he died in June and my mom cannot be over her finances..she has emphysema, congestive heart failure and copd. I am all of people to help me. I am about to loose my car which will make me loose my job and my friends are very mad with me for not having the money to pay them back because they were trying to help me. I am trying to do so good for me and my daughter and everything goes wrong. If i could make it until I get my first payday and my school money things will be good but it is so hard right now. I don't know what I may do! People have been so kind to me but they can't anymore. I have applied for food stamps and waiting on response. If you could please help me..i can verify all I tell you is the truth. Thank you for your time.

Well I think if you have a job upcoming and you will be able to pay bills in the future, then you can look into an auto refinance from a bank or lender. They can help people save hundreds of dollars per year on their car payments by lower interest rates and/or extending payment periods on car loans. Many lenders, such as Chase, Wachovia, and Bank of America offer auto loan refis.

Well cars are obviously not common to get as just a tad bit expensive. Some times some local agencies may accept donated cars from the local community. Or you can try programs like 1800 charity cars. Find a listing of local non-profit agencies to call in your area of Alabama for information and advice here. http://needhelppayingbills.com/html/mon ... grams.html

Hello,

I am located in Reading, Pennsylvania and am urgently seeking any and all financial assistance/charities/very low cost loan/grant resources in my area for car repairs/Inspection/registration/insurance. Use of my car is imperative since I am employed 24/7/365. I have many expenses such as taking care of my wife's grandmother with dementia and need to get to doctor appointments, grocery shopping etc. My kids have medical conditions and appointments they need to get to, and my car is critical for getting around for all of these issues.

Thank You. God Bless.

i need to pay $395 to keep my vehicle in operation. our only income is my wife's SSI check of $628, the social security administration is deducting almost $70 out of her check for over payment, and i am in the process of getting my disability. so if i could get some help with our rent and utilities so i can keep my vehicle going, as we need it for me and my wife's doctors appointment, i owe the $395 to the DMV.

Well, there are not really grants that can be used to buy cars. However there are low interest loans. One of the main non-profits is known as Ways to Work. They are available nationally, including in Pennsylvania, and many local non-profits and charities work with the group. They provide people very low interest loans to buy a car or truck. The automobile needs to be used for work purposes, which sounds like is why you want your car. So you will be OK there. But the loans are limited, but definitely more affordable than what you would get from a dealership. Learn more.

Good Morning
I am in desperate need of a vehicle. My job depended on having a car so we can have an income for our bills. I lost my job because I don't have one anymore.
My husband is on probation and its really making his life harder to fulfill his probationary duties with no way to get anywhere.
I have fibromyalgia and COPD and after being in Pediatric dental hygiene, Orthodontics and surgery assisting for almost 15 years and my body couldn't handle that any more. I've been on life support for my COPD. I was delivering newspapers using my car for work, my husband and I had 2 routes that we worked every single night 7 days a week and once we were done we would do several Instacart deliveries. Even with the pandemic we could still work. I haven't had a car in a few years and was using my sisters car. My sister went into the hospital August 24 of this year with a heart attack at the age of 32 and passed away September 22 of heart failure. As soon as she passed the car was taken from me. Its actually still just sitting in her old apartment parking lot rusting. I'm now unemployed. We have no way to get anywhere.
I am not even able to get my daughter to her mental health checkups as we do not have a car. Which she just got out of the hospital in April of this year after being hospitalized since May of 2020.
My entire life is now starting to become scary. I have applied to every place I can that I can walk to, as has my husband. But even walking is a problem with my COPD and no one wants to hire my husband because of his past record. I'm to the point of saying I'm done and ending it all.
Can someone please please please help me get a car for work so we can pay our bills. I can go back to work the night I can even just borrow a car....if anyone can please help me. I'm desperate and my family is on the verge of becoming homeless.
Thankyou God Bless and have a lovely weekend.
