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.

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...

Hi there..I just joined this site. Saw that it was site that helps people with certain needs. I have epilepsy/seizure disorder and cannot drive, due to my seizures, therefore it makes it hard to get to and from my appointments etc etc. I also had to take my neurological care to another city to a epilepsy clinic and this clinic took me under their shoe immediately. I went 10yrs without a seizure, was driving and working etc, but now its hard and very depressing to have to depend on people. I live in Syracuse Housing and am looking to transfer to Rochester, but am looking for some services or maybe get referred or some numbers if you cannot help. I would appreciate it. Having seizures and worrying about the extra stress of getting to and from syr to there is overwhelming itself and can cause more seizures. I would love to transfer to Rochester Housing Authority and get out of Syracuse Housing and totally start all over in another city, new doctors , new life etc. I live in a building now and 7 people have died within 3 weeks. Kind of scary! That could be me with these seizures if I keep having them. My doctors in Syracuse were not good and I will give them a one star, versus Strong epilepsy clinic, which I will already rate them as a 5, because they took me in immediately and gave me more options as far as care or surgery goes. These docs here told me my case was complicated and to why they could not do surgery on me, the doctors in Rochester told me why my case was complicated. I need to move out of Syracuse. Any help or numbers would be appreciated to help me in this matter.

Sincerely
Donnita S

Hi, I'm sorry, the person you posted to has not been on here for years. We are not aware of any resources that will help pay for travel expenses. But usually plane tickets are expensive. Maybe try for bus or plane ticket.

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.
