 in response to septembersfire...   Have you signed up for any aide assistance from your county? What about the kids absent parent? It sounds like you are in the same situation that most of us here are in. I went through what your going through several years ago. I had to sit down with my family members and have a 'reality' talk with them. It was hard. Our life style was changed. I called it , down sizing. I moved out of our 4 bed. 2 bath BIG house to a cheaper town. I called it a cabin! It was a 40 yr. old 2bed. (barely) 1bath. The ceilings were low...the floors uneven....but, it cut my rent in half! My utilities were cut by MORE than half!
My two girls were 15 and 5! I sat them down and told them we might have days without lights, heat & no video. But, I would be there for them. That if our Great Grandparents could strive without certain things, we could certainly stick together and make this an adventure. It is a period in my girls life that they fondly share & reminisce about. They both are 15 yrs. older now. They have told me many times how that was one of the most meaningful memories to their childhood! My oldest has a son of her own and she plans these events as FUN times for him. She says it is really a special time for them with no TV, Phone and it test their resourcefulness. She ask Wil if he can think of ways to solve their dilemma's and he comes up with some really good ideas. The reason I shared this with you is because I remember feeling like I was failing my children during rough times. I just wanted to let you know that kids really feel better when they grow up with limits that they can handle. When we are Stressed, we often reflect in to our children.
It sounds like you need to think of more long term sources of aide. Free your life up where you can. Enjoy the short years left with your son and daughter before they are out of the house. Mean while, let me know if you have signed up already for aide. If not, why? I will be checking in N. Mexico trying to see what resources are available for you!

 in response to septembersfire...   Welcome to aidpage, septembersfire. I'm so sorry to hear your having relationship problems on top of everything else. First of all hon, what state do you live in? County too would be helpful. How long have you been behind on the rent? How many children do you have and what are their ages? Things are really tight for all of us right now. In order for us to point you in the right direction, we need to know a little more about your situation. There are still programs available, but you need money today! I don't usually recommend the loan companies that loan you money against your next income. They are easy to get, but high interest. You have to be disciplined to use only when have to and pay it back on time. I have used it twice in my life. I was thankful that it was available to make ends meet.
So, send us some more info to go by and in the meantime you can browse the pages here on the different topics and you may find some info that will help. Keep your thoughts positive! You will be in my prayers. Until we hear more,
Sandav1 ~ ~ May God bless you ~ ~

I am posting this out of desperation... I need $550 today so that I do not get evicted. I Have been searching for work to no avail, I have been doing any and all odd jobs I can find. I have sold everything I have of value to feed my kids... I paid all the bills at the beginning of the month, and the deal was my roommate would pay the rent. Instead he moved out and left me holding the bag... I have called everyone I know to borrow money, and have come up with part of it but I am still short... If any one can help PLEASE contact ASAP @ Thank you.

Hi, I've been out of work for 3 + year and believe me I've been actively searching for work. My unemployment ran out in october and I'm to the point where I'm out of options.Family cant help,what little family there is. My truck has 220,000 miles on it and its on its last leg,but now I cant even afford gas to look for a job or to go on interviews. On top of that,my daughter just turned 19 so public aid said no more insurance and my wife has asthma.This country sends our tax dollars to help other countries while were forced to the street. Anybody have any sincere ideas that might help before I'm homeless. Now there ready to shut off my electric & phone for lack of payment, so then hows a person supposed to get a job.I'm at my wits end and cant even sleep through the night because of all the stress. Someone with a heart please help. My gaurdian angel must be out there somewhere.

I am so sorry you have colon cancer and it has spread to the liver. My friend had the same thing happen to him. He had not much saved and friends helped out but had Kaiser Insurance and he did a lot of trying other things if money permitted. He kept it a secret from some friends and I don't know how he managed but someone took him to wellness groups and support groups as he put it no matter how he felt.

You may find some answers and help here.

Try and or to maybe help you until you get disability in this link

Right now that is all I can think of. There are some transporation for cancer patients.

You might try this for transportation as I don't know how far it is you go for treatment.

I hope this helps you.

I am a 34 year old single mom. My baby is 22 months old. Her 60 yr old dad passed in FEb. He died before we wre able to get perternity testing, so she gets no social security like he was on and I only get 300 dollars a month to raise her and my rent is 375$ alone. I am living in a small area that has barely any jobs. I owe six hundred dollers to go back to scholl. Can I go back to school and still make payments on what I owe at the same time? I wanna move out of this town, but I have no money and I feel trapped. My mom passed when I was a girl, and my dad and stepmom do not spesk to me. My daughters other set of grandparents have passed on so it is just me and her. I need a solution. Im filing for social security because I have alot of mental diagnoses, like bipolar, bpsd, ptsd, depression, and agoraphobia. I dont really think that I am agoraphobic cause I go out alot, I just feel more comfortable at home where noone can upset me or ruin my day. I know iots not reality that I can keep living this way because my bills and rent need to be paid. I am a good mom and I am happy, but I'm scared as hell, how am I gonna raise her. I need to get something going so I can financially be a good mother as well. I dont have a car or a phone so that makes things even harder. My stomach hurts from my worry. I hope someone out there can pray for us to make ends meet. I need a way out. I need a solution to all the confusion. I want to give me and my lil girl a good happy life, and I know me and her belong together and I wont give up. I dont know. I hope God helps things get better soon:)

Hi I'm 29 and have just become a single mum. I'm just training to return back to work and hope to be back in two months with a company I worked for before I had my son. I have had a few hurdles to jump over the years and due to my health have had to retrain in a slightly different area in my field. I had planned to return back part time but this has all happened and my ex has jumped on a plane overseas and left me with a baby and rent to pay leaving me also with no money. I have know one I can ask for help sadly as my father died when I was young and mother is in no situation to help.

I would not normally ask but I have a son just about to turn one and really don't know what to do. I have 800 in rent to pay and no food for my son can anyone please help.
