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. 

http://www.modestneeds.org/

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. 

 http://www.microgiving.com/

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.

http://www.svdpusa.org/Contact.aspx

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 

http://www.grantedwish.org/index.cfm

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. 

 http://www.wishuponahero.com/

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 don'tknow if anyone could get you that much in 30days unless the church is willing because everything is red tape and takes time you could try this site some people get money from it
http://www.Gofundme.com/
You have to explain to all the people online there willing to help why you need the money.
I'm just curious what church was rotten enough to yell at you, that's terrible behaviour in the name of God.

Make sure you find a pantry you can sign up to on the shelter sites. You must go
and pick up the stuff when they tell you and never miss the date or they can refuse you after

Walmart has 3 types of diabetic insulin which you can puchase if you know what you need without a prescription it's called reliOn brand or slow or fast acting Novolin N and R for 24.99 a bottle. My husband uses it it's not as good as some but if you test your sugar a lot you can use it well without problems,,Just call and ask your local Walmart about what they carry at that price in insulin

Also see if your Family doctor doesn't have a( Reduced Cost of Care Application)that you can fill out for medical cost assistance if you don't have medical insurance..

The Christmas Cat   in reply to stress out
You need to apply to the assistance sites I sent you and the job sites for a better paying job I always tell people don't get what you don't need as in expensive Cell phones and contracts and Television there are options if you have to have this also. Just by cutting back the way it's done. Keep the heat at 65 wear a robe things like that you won't believe the savings everyday.Buy no name brands and shop in dollar tree outlets and thrift stores.. If you do this already your doing the best you can But some people really don't understand and think they can't do without these things .and the bills keep piling and they just can't make ends meet. A budget is tough and it's all about what you pay, when ,how much you pay according to what you make and how you pay it.
Every year our pay checks stay the same and everything else gets inflated. I understand that...It's all about the math in our lives what can we subtract in our lives to make life livable
but not necessarily pleasurable there are no pleasures for some in life but we need to keep moving to a place where we can at least be comfortable.there were pro-bono lawyers at the bottom of the list if that is needed also.Come on anytime for more support or questions.
Use the list I sent you see what you can find for assistance.
All the best
