 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.

Amazing company, makes working a mlm more like owning your own business. There is no commitment so if its not for you, you can quit at anytime, or just take a long vacation if you need a break. Several different ways to make money : Wrap cash, Loyal customer commissions, building a team, and bonuses. Anyone can bonus not just for the distributors that build teams but also for loyal customer enrollment. Its so fun and you will make a ton of friends. It brought me out of severe depression!

Well i can tell u if u only get Medicaid they not going to help u with anything. Thats all i get from the government here in mi. But all i can do is give u information where u mite get helped. Type need help with bills city state if u don't it under city state put county state u will see a list of places that can help if they got the funds. But every resource only help u one time a year. For food for your cat u can get food from the humanities society one time a month. Hope this can help u. Also when u got your medicaid card the paper that came with it sure had your work name on it

Dear Tammy
Have medicaid. No social worker. Getting run around. Call this #. Now call that #. No one actually helps you network. I have two cats that moved with me. They are my kids. No money to feed them once on street.

I am going to be homeless with my two cats. Scared to death. Been in this place about 6 months. No transportation. No busses. No way around. 15-20 miles to nearest town. Very frustrated. No job either. With no transportation. Almost impossible.
