Please try not to give up.

  26. Pamela Wilson-Lipscomb Post author

    Melissa, Thank you for writing Free Financial Help. Concerning receiving a toy for your little one, It is too late to register, but the larger denominational local churches are a place I would suggest contacting. The Lutheran church does a lot of outreach to the community. Perhaps you can find some help there. Sorry we could not send you to the help you needed.

Also go to the department of social services to get emergency assistance, and a referral to a food bank. You may also be eligible for emergency government assistance. Good luck.

    Thank you

  83. Free Financial Post author

    Hello, Maria. I know many people are having financial programs these days. However, our programs are for those presently living in the United States. Sorry we could not help.

  84. Free Financial Post author

    Hello, Cheryl. Right now, I suggest you contact transitional housing option and shelters in your area. You did not mention if you have young children or not.

  85. Btends

    The problem with rent assist programs that many fail to mention is you must have children. I have none so will be homeless. No one can help because of that.

  86. Free Financial Post author

    Btends, you can go to the DSS who give once a year financial assistant to adult not receiving government assistance. I know someone who received help when behind in rent. Also contact the United Way in your city.

  87. Free Financial Post author

    Hello, Viviana. If you are living in a hotel because you do not have a permanent dwelling, contact the Department of Social Service to see if you can get a voucher to help with your rent.

  88. Stranded

    Additionally, all of these places like united way, salvation army, catholic charities, and other places do not help. They keep telling us that we need to drive there and we keep telling them that our car is still in the shop and since we do not have our cars , we can’t go to work and we do not have money except for food. We eat breakfast at the hotel and we use their snacks for throughout the day and eat at night. We conserve our food. All of the charities and churches do not help. We are stranded.

  89. Jhoy s.

    We have to be out of the aurora inn in aurora mo and don’t have no where to go I get paid Friday if u could help thank u God bless

  91. Free Financial Post author

    Stranded, you are in a real difficult situation. You have to understand these agencies can not help you, if they can not meet with you, take an application and receive documentation of your situation. Is there a bus or train near you, or do you have someone who can drive you there? Going in person is part of the process.

  92. Free Financial Post author

    Hello, James. I don’t know what state you live in. You may have to go to a shelter until you can move to another hotel. Also contact the DSS, they may be able to help with a voucher towards your hotel payments. Good luck.

If you have family in another state, perhaps you can get help to move back home. Call the Salvation Army to see what options are available to you. Also, contact HUD. Your biggest obstacles are the dogs. Call 2-1-1 for help in your area.

  128. Mia Narcisse

    My name is Mia Narcisse, I have called and exhausted all of my options above I mean all of them Salvation army, 211,St Vincent, local churches,House of Hope,loans etc. I live in a hotel and that’s all that’s affordable other than the streets since I don’t have a traditional home places will not help, the shelter all have long waiting lists, and due to the hurricane season lots of people are not budging anytime soon. I have no car so its tough getting anywhere and food requires you to actually show up to the location. I am looking for work and hopefully its promising but my boyfriend is working and through the little bit he makes and the processions we have sold we are barely making it. Let alone eating or having personal hygiene products. We have no family to turn to and although I’d hate to say this we are absolutely desperate at this time. Thank you, even if no help is out there just wanted to try my hand and see if there was.

If you are working for 8 – 12 months you may be able to purchase a used car from Goodwill Industries. (if there is a program where you live.) Perhaps the people holding you car will give you back your identification. Tasha, also try contacting the Salvation Army, if you are needing housing.

    Hello, Elizabeth. There are no agencies that will help you make a car payment. My only suggestions are: Ask for a 30 day deferral (or longer even).
    See if you can pay less per month by extending the life of your loan, or renegotiate to lower your interest rate

    hello, my name is Yong. I lost a job about 4 months ago and I think I am battling a depression after lost a job that I had sacrificed for 4 years. It was a big lost for me. Now, I am in such a big mess here in financially. I moved my son to Richmond Va so he doesnt have to deal with my struggle but I borrowed $1000 to move him and now he needs $800 for the February rent. I also had borrowed $4000 to stay living in those 4 months because I have no savings. I feel so aweful because nobody can help me. I wanted to just end my life here so that everyone can move on without dealing with my struggle. However, I am reaching out for help. I want to live! I will do everything I can to survive. Its too bad that I just, now, decided to get out of my struggle, but I am asking help because it scared me when I was really thinking about end my life. Please help and looking forward for your response….thank you
