Help with Rent, Security Deposit, Utility Bills

Starshine started this conversation

Many people come here in need of help with rent, security deposits and help with utlility bills to name a few. Althought this won't solve everyone's problems it may help some.

Here are some places you may recieve help and remember that many people apply so you take a chance and hope your needs are meet to some degree.

Has helped with rent and car repair before from a few people I know. You can apply on line to see if they can help you and if you meet the qualifications.

Is another source for assistance and I know of  three people here that have applied and know a person very active with the with the organization.

Here are a few of the programs they St. Vincent de Pauls helps out with. See the link for your nearest one to see if and what they can help you with. There are more programs they help out with at the link above. 

# Food programs
# Emergency financial assistance
# Emergency transportation
# Disaster relief and victim services
# Rent/mortgage assistance
# Low-cost housing

I have applied here before and it is a one time shot at applying. They were not able to help me but read the stories to see if they can help you.

You can make up to three wishes and best if they are under $100 each. You can check the catagories to see which you like to put your wish in. 

Then I found a place JewishFamilyServices and if you put those words into google.com for your nearest one they may be able to help you. One person on this site came from Indiana to California and they helped with a security deposit and the security deposit they recieved was under $500. 

ON UTILITIES: Phone, electric and gas. Call your local companies for each as they all have a program for low income people and be sure to get on them if you meet their requirements. I have been on the program and off them since living in California.  Remember to turn off what you aren't using and unplug things like microwave that you aren't using as they do draw energy when plugged in...

The last two I tried long ago but never stuck with them. You can try them.

Then you can always apply for hud housing, section8 or housing authority and get on the waiting list.

If you need more information see my blog at

Wishing us all the best during these tough times to get the help we need.

Take care everyone and be sure to help your neighbors in some way...

I have been there and done that. All of the funds that are out there are being used for the homeless to get them off of the streets. I spent at lease three hours off and on talking to 211 and going to places trying to get help. Its for important to get the homeless off the streets then to take care of the seniors.

I need help with groceries. It would be my first time asking here. I work but the people I live with are very money hungry and greedy. My husband and I have to hide our food in our room and they know I need to eat due to being diabetic. We can't move just yet since I'm new to my job and he's currently looking.
