Need transportation in order to get a job

Post by Armstrong »

I am unemployed. Staffing agency having difficulty placing me because I have no reliable transportation (car), public transportation (Tri-met) is not considered "reliable transportation" anymore. I am looking for 12 hour shifts, rotating shifts, weekend shifts, in newly incorporated work areas on the border lines of the Tri county areas (Multnomah, Clackamas, and Washington counties). It is now very difficult to acquire and keep employment because of this situation. I've lost at least 6 job opportunities just because I couldn't get there, get home, or both by the bus and it’s very frustrating sense I've spent most of my career life using public transportation. When I was able to acquire a car I ended up selling it to pay bills and keep from getting evicted! I need help or I will be homeless for the 1st time in my working life! I'm 45 years old and for the 1st time in my life I fear being homeless!....HELP!!

Looking for a grant to help me pay rent for a few months and also a car or transportation. Right now I've had interviews waiting on call backs and calls. I'm in the process of finishing my school program in Miami this January and I'm in need of bus fare to complete the whole 3 months. I also have 4 children. My oldest 2 start next week. I have no idea how I'm going to get them to school. My vehicle was stolen October 16th, 2013. I'm in desperate need of emergency assistance

Transportation and cars are rare. You can try places like the Salvation Army or a program known as Ways to Work. One will help you buy a car, and the other Salvation Army may have volunteer drivers. But as we noted, this type of resource is very rare and you need to qualify and have a good reason. Get more details on cars and transportation.

We need help paying the rent and money for a used car or some form of transportation. I went to school from 2/2012 to 11/2012 for medical assistant. On 3/2016 my unemployment stopped and jobs are still hard to find. I’ve sold my motorcycle and a small camper to help pay the bills but now I have nothing left to sell and still cannot find work. I’m looking for help with some type of other car/motorcycle so I can get a job and then I need money our rent for the next month or two and if possible some help with some medical bills. Thank You.

I am a first time pregnant mother due September 30th and I am scared to death about having to accept being homeless in a few weeks due to the father of my baby's mother moving away. I am unemployed and struggle to find a job due to not having transportation as well as currently being too far from town to walk in the heat.
I feel so hopeless with not having any help or support system of my own to look to. Please if you can tell me anything that will help it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Asking for information on getting help  with getting a car for job interviews and employment needs. I can't get nothing so would have transportation to and from doctors’ appointments plus a lot of job opportunities have passed by with not having a vehicle and in danger of being homeless  and losing everything. I Applied for SSI due to many medical problems but if I were to keep missing appointments might risk my case plus I need the medical attention. I am only on food stamps and medical with no income. I live in Shamokin PA. Seems like nobody knows how to get help or have the resources to lead me in the right direction. If you could please help and lead me to the best resources around my area in order to get a car for a job, with my situation I would greatly appreciate it. Look at hearing from you.
                           Thank you

Ways to Work can help you pay for transportation or a car that is work related. They offer low cost auto loans and/or give out a new used car. They do operate in PA. Find details on Ways to Work cars for a job.

Hello my name is Anya. I am a mother of two and have been homeless at least half of my life and now I need a car to get to work. By some miracle my significant other and I were able to get together enough funds and qualify for a home to rent in Montgomery. We had to pay $4650.00 to get in the door. Now our second months rent we are short on due to all the moving costs. I also need a car to get to work from the new place we are living as I lack transportation.
We want to establish ourselves in this house until we can buy our own. We moved in with no furnishings and little food. We found a food shelf but we still need help with next months rent. By my math we will be about $400.00 short on May's rent which is $1500.00. Do you have any programs that can help us with May's rent? We are also in need of furniture and household goods. Are there any vouchers available for furniture or transport? Finally we need help getting a second car as we live a little further away from our jobs now and need to be able to maintain transportation to work in order to pay the bills. Do you have any programs that would help us get a second vehicle?
