Thanks for posting this unfortunately most organizations that have programs get a small amount of funds, have long waiting lists, and or just refer people to call 211. I am in a bad situation and needed some financial and community help. I have not found assistance with even food as the local food places are out, and the church's I have called again also having waiting lists or do not have time to respond. The benefits of living in a community that has countless houses of worship and organizations who take money for low income (Alabama power for one) but turn their nose up at people asking for help.
