HELP - WHEN YOU HAVE NO INCOME

Anonymous started this conversation
Note: This aidpage was started as a comment on "Aidpage of dishmansoo"

dishmansoo,

 There is a TON of help out there. First of all, start with the basics: welfare, food stamps and medicaid. With no income , you should qualify for all of the above. Social services can also assist with rent and utility shut off. If they can't or refuse, ask them where you can go for help.

 Other places to check are: Catholic charities, st vincent de paul, red cross, community action organization, etc. I have all the links on my national organization page.

 Also check my home page for links to soulight, lady christie, and a few other pages that have a ton of resources and help for low income individuals.

Since the age of 16, I have worked three jobs from the age 16 to now, the age 52, have had three surgery’s, have back pain around the clock, nee pain, both feet pain all the time, my doctors keep giving me pain medicine, but what happens is when the pain medicine were off the pain come back. Because of my medical problems, I can no longer get or hold down a job. S. S. I say’s they feel I can still work, tell my body that. I am not lazy, after each surgery I went back to work and struggle hard just to make it through each day. I had to come to grip that working days are over for me, thank God for E-B-T help, but I have a wife 2-6 and 14-year-old boys that need me. What can I do but wait on S-S-I? Who turned me down, my lawyers or on it but in the meantime we still need money. The disability laws for approval need a makeover. According to them, you need to be missing a leg, almost in the grave. Please, no harm mint to or handicap people, love them all.
Just trying to survive:

I know what you're saying. I'm in the same situation waiting on my disability. I have no income and no will help you if you don't have an income. I pray all the time I know God will help us. Keep the prayers going up.

I have gone to public assistant for a one shot deal. They have decline me 3 times due to I have no income. I have also gone to almost all rental assistance agencies & they also decline me for a one shot deal. I have reached out to the the Catholic Charities & once again I have been declined to received a one shot deal. None of these charities will help unless you have an income.

In Iowa you have to have a child to receive welfare, I have no job, was let go before 90 days so therefore I am not eligible for unemployment. I do get food stamps which helps with food. But can get no help paying rent, and utilities. I have been looking for a job every day, signed up with a temp agency, sent countless applications, nothing yet...so where does a single person with no children get help? It seems to me that if you are trying to make it you get no help, I see people that just sit around and don't even try to help themselves and they get all kinds of help...just frustrated and at a loss.
