How do I find help with food and bills? I don't know where to turn to or what to do.

Naples Florida Assistance Programs

Post by cberri28 »

I have 4 children. My husband was in a car accident this past Feb. 2009. ( the car accident was not his falt ) ( we have an attorney that took case with 0 money down) . He is unable to work (drs orders) he is unable to continue his tratments because our car insurence ran out. We do not have money to help him recover from accident. We have been renting in collier county (marco island fl.) For the past 5 years. We are in the process of being evicted from our home. We have lived here in this home for about 3 years now. I am working as a waitress in Naples. Not making much money. I spend more money in gas to get to work then what I have been making. Prior to this job I was a manager in a restaurant for 5 years but with econmey so bad they had to let me go. I need help with finding a better paying job. All my money I am making pays for water, electric, food diapers and gas. I can't save any money to pay rent or save for a new rental. If you can please help me in any way or please lead me in the right direction for assistance I would be ever so grateful. I am the type of person that always helped other people and now I need help and can't find any help out there. Please try to help me. ( I am using a cell phone to email so I can't always receive downloads)
Thank you for all of your time,
Hope to hear from you soon,

In florida, try a community action agency. They offer several programs that can help people with expenses. And they can access and refer you to applicable government programs.

We live in Davenport Fl 33897 / Polk County.
We're looking for help with our rent, electric, and water bill before it's too late.
We relocated here to Florida for my husband to take a full time job to support our family of 4, then myself I found a full time job, however we have both lost our jobs, just merely because we were not liked. We are now in financial hardship and no one to ask to help with our rent to avoid being evicted.
We were previously in an apartment and had to move out due to mold and into a hotel for two months because we had no where else to go, not knowing there was potential help out there because we have never experienced this before and have fought for our livelihood for so long. We kept our faith, and moved into the home we have been in since March of this year, but since we have lost our jobs we will now face not having all the money for rent, because once unemployment starts it just will not be enough. We are asking for help because we told our kids that we would not go back to a hotel again, if we could absolutely help it. If there is any amount that we
can assisted with that would be a true blessing for us. God Bless You for this type of help. Thank you sincerely for your time.

So sad that you both moved there then lost your jobs. That is not right. Your employers should have worked with you.
But there is emergency help in Polk County Florida.
Maybe they can help you and your family of 4 with their bills.
