Seeking assistance

What's your take? (click here)

About otis0918

I am a south suburb resident of Illinois and currently behind in my rent.  I am seeking funds or assistance to assist with the monthly payment of $1,000.00 per month.  I am a divorced mother of two and currently employed.  If you or another reference source is able to assist, it will be greatly appreciated.  I'm not sure if this is a short term assistance or what.  But if I can get some type of relief it will help alot.


Thank you

About Ms. Lee

I am a widow with a 12 year old son who is in need of financial assistance. I have filed bankruptcy and it has been discharged. I have been on my job for 6 years and am barely making ends meet. I am desperate. I have asked for assistance from various organizations only to be told that I'm just above that I make too much money and they can't help us. I need help and am becoming desperate.

I am a 26 year old single mother of 4 children, ages 5, 4, 2 and 1.  I just got out of a very verbally, emotionally, and sometimes physically abusive relationship with their father.  He would not work, which left the financial burden of providing for my family entirely upon me.  I got behind on some bills after I had my youngest child because I couldnt find a job for a few months.  I have never been able to catch up.

Everything came crashing down on me about a month ago.  My rent was behind, my water and electricity got cut off, and my car broke down. What made it the hardest for me was having to deal with the abuse everyday when I came home from work, adding unnecessary stress.  One day I got fed up and took a chance.  I took what I could and left.

My first week in Atlanta and I already got a job.  Good pay, yet not quite enough to provide comfortably for a family of 5, but the best is yet to come.  I have faith in God, and feel very optimistic.  I no longer have to deal with the abuse, and I can start a new chapter.  But of course I have new hurdles to overcome, being that at the moment we really have nothing but the clothes on our backs.  A good friend loaned me their car for a while, the children are in daycare, which I get assistance for,  and I am staying at a womens shelter.  They said we can stay for 30 days, which should be enough time for me to save up a few paychecks and find a place.  Right now Im going to need 1st months rent, deposit, utility deposits, furniture, gas money, clothing, diapers, etc.  I have been riding on fumes because I have no money right now, so the gas tank is empty and I'm making it by solely on faith. God is taking me in a new direction for a reason.  I have inside of me the strength to make the necessary changes to leave my old negative, stress-ridden life behind and begin a new chapter, for the sake of my children.  I am a hardworker but I just need a little help to get over the hump of this transition.  Any help or advice would greatly be appreciated!!!   Thank You!

I am a 49 year old male seeking assistance, as I am unemployed and have serious medical problems which has caused me to be unable to perform most work.  I am a Christian, and spend most of my time read the Bible, praying and thinking about the Lord.
