Help With Rent And Security Deposit

LouM started this conversation

I am in need of some emergencey help for a place to live for me and my daughter. We are currently homeless and staying with anyone who will let us stay a night or 2. I am on disability and have found an apartment I can afford but need funding for the deposit and first months rent.

                                                                                 Thank You Lou

hi,maybe you are thinking of someone else. Lou is a 64 year old disabled lady that lives in Ohio, and is unable to wash cars.

In California is all kind of help for illegal aliens. Maybe there is some help for you too.We have Bank Foods, if you need food and go to Social Security for everything else. There are shelters, and so on. Seems to me you need a temporary help, because you are physically strong to go to wotk. You can wash cars

I know this sounds like "whatever"have you tried local shelters they will help you get houising you just have to do the leg work. I done this years ago when all my boys were young i know section 8 vochers will help just until you can get a leg up and they feed you

hello, my names cj I'm a 47 year old male with a 7 year old white husky fixed and friendly,i live in the Milwaukee WI. area and the place I'm renting can't be used as a residence due to local laws, the building is a 40x80 warehouse with a huge apt. like inside. well to make a long story short,i have to leave here by mar. 31st. and this winter has been extremely hard on me as to i am a mobile mechanic, the hard part is finding a decent place i can afford and keep my husky, he was a rescue dog and i am the fourth owner and i have had him for 4 years now, i could not bear to give him up,he is a part of my family. any ideas please advise,thank you to each who can help.i'm not looking for a handout out, but a helping hand up would be nice, i can trade my services for rent also. as for the amount i can afford is right around $500 a month total. but i also need a garage to store my stuff and to protect my tools in my truck, people will steal anything nowadays,and those tools are my life. again thank you.

I am ah Mother who really needs some help in finding me and my 6 kids a place to stay until I can get a job and get on my feet. I moved from another city because of serious situations that could cause me my life. I moved with no regrets and never looking back. I need some help I'm not the type to want others to feel sorry for me cause I'm usually doing this on my own providing the needs for my Babies. So if anyone knows any resources I can look into to help me make my situation a lil better (a place to lay our heads, a job) really need you'll help

hi,go to DHS,apply for TANF,foodstamps,section 8,and cash assistance. go to food bank every month for more food, and to churches with food pantry for more free food if needed. also get free clothes for yourself and your children whenever you need them at churches with clothes closet, call churches in your area to find out which ones do(usually Catholic ones do) we do not know any resources that will help with a car,sorry.
