I'm a 56 year old African American woman who is on disability for chronic asthma and airway obstruction. I do the best I can to use my money wisely, however, sometimes unforeseen circumstances circumstances cause me to fall behind. I was brought up with the mindset of working and standing on my own. However, I realize that we all in this world to give to others as we are able. I am certainly no exception. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
We have no cash on this site to give to people. $6000 is a lot of money for a water bill. No resources will help anyone with that much money. None help with more than an average current bill that is due, one time a year.
Hi, can you stay at your mom's house awhile until you find a place? Public housing is, and has been very full, there seems to be waiting lists everywhere. Apply for section 8 at welfare office, get on internet and enter "low income housing help" sometimes you can find help there. And you can call churches in your area and find out which ones have clothes closet. your and your children can go there and get free clothes when you need them.
Isn't school out for the summer? Do you have a summer job that you are working at. Usually people with college degrees that are employed don't get help with bills. Maybe just sit down and review your budget and see if there are any areas where you might be able to cut back on spending each month. Ask your mom or your preacher at church if he knows any assistance that might help you work on your finances, our church has a program like that, and there are internet sites that discuss ways to save money.
Hi, call churches in your area ask if they have clothes closet, you can get free clothes there whenever you need them. Some clothes closets have some real nice stuff- I know because I volunteer a few hours a week in one.So many donated clothing items in all sizes-if they are not in good condition we do not put them on the racks. No resources buy new clothes for anyone, that's why the churches have clothes closets. And you can get on internet, type in needhelppayingbills, then your city,county,state. You will then see a list of resources in your area that may be able to help with electric bill. If they are out of funds, check with Salvation Army and welfare office, sometimes they can help. I am sorry could not get with you before 3 pm yesterday.
