BLESSINGS4
I am a struggling mother of three and I am in need of help. Almost a year ago, I lost my apartment and have being staying with different people. My mother had lost her house right before I lost my apartment and she too had been staying with different people. A few months back she received a blessing. This guy gave her a trailer through the church and now has another one. She gave me the trailer and it really needs some work done to it. I have no money to get it fixed and my kids want to be in there own home in their own bed. Please, I really need some help getting it fixed. I am praying that God sends my family and I a blessing.

Help03
I have been severly disabled medically and unable to work for over 3 years. Unfortunately the physicians are still trying to figure out what is wrong. And it is taking forever to get social security disability. Our medical bills are piling up so high. My husband had a wonderful job for over 20 years but recently lost it do to cut backs. We were able to keep our heads afloat with this job but now we are struggling really bad. We are unable to pay our house note, medical bills, food and other bills. We are at the risk of losing our home now. We have 2 kids, 11 years old and 6 years old. My husband is in the process of a possible job replacement at this time but in the meantime we cannot keep our heads above water. Does anyone know of any help out there? We would be so grateful!!! Thank you!

I have 3 kids and I have been struggling so badly, my income is not enough to do anything, my water has been off for 2 weeks and we have been filling up jugs and boiling water for us to take baths. My oldest daughter burnt herself really bad trying to help me fill up the tub. I got a 7 day notice to pay rent or get out lastvweek and I have no family to turn to. I have tried every agency but no one is doing any assistance because they dont have funding. I am praying for help from anyone, but if not im still thankful that we are all healthy because it could be worse. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Bless all

 in response to Jaie...   Go to the site Modest Needs, they will help. Fill out simply form and provide information they need. They will put your request in when everything done. It takes a few weeks but usually you can get the help needed. My daughter got money for a car repair in about three weeks. This is a great organization!

 in response to holdmyheadhigh...   Theres Housing assistance, they'll help you get a place for almost nothing. and you can call the power company and get on the budget plan that helps with the cost of electric, with that you can sign up for foodstamps and cash assistance till you get on your feet, theres alot of programs out there you just have to get off your butt and get it done. Don't wait till the last minute go and fill out the forms and get the process rolling.....theres alot of great programs tht will help, but there not gonna come looking for you, you have to go and get them.

Alicat1228
On Dec 12, 2011, someone broke into our home and stole all of our valuables and set our house on fire.So whatever was not stolen was destroyed by the fire. Our insurance does not cover our belongings or a place to live while we are working on getting our lives back together. The red cross gave us a room for 2 days, but we will be without our home for longer than that. Is there any assistance for something like this?
