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

You might try some of the fundraising programs on the Internet like Kickstarter and Indiegogo. They are geared for small business, but have some pleas for assistance. The best way to get public support is a good video telling your story. If you do not want to use your identity ask a novice to star in your story to share it with possible supporters.

I like that but each day I wake up start breathing see the sun feel the air. I am in NJ and it is cold outside and yet I have been in a warm place for almost 10 weeks but each day I am afraid of the next. We are mean to be here or we would not be breathing. Love keeps us.

If you are only asking and not expressing gratitude for little and small things, this malaise will continue indefinitely. You will continue to feel miserable. The bottom line is about relationship.

It sounds like changing your relationship to God might help. Have you figured out what is blocking the relationship? That is the key. If you have questions or comments and want to discuss this more in depth with me, write on the one to one window.

If you want things to change, you must begin to thank God everyday for something regardless of how bad your situation might be. God is willing to surprise you with His Love when He learns that you truly trust Him. The hardest thing for us to do is to trust God when things are going bad.

You will need to google and put in your city and state to see what the name of the agency for seniors might be. Of you could call the social service department and see if they have any information on help for seniors or also the non-emergency police might have some information.

Thank you sisterServicant. I googled women's shelter. All of them are either for addicted women or for ones with chidlren. What is the name of the housing agency for seniors?

I can't find woman's shelters in my area. The closest one is 45 min away. What's the name of the agency on housing for seniors.

SisterServant   in reply to julia61
Contact a women's shelter and see if you can talk with a counselor about your legal rights, etc. Also, there might some assistance for you with housing based on your age. Contact the agency on housing for seniors.
