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.

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.

Hi I'm 21 and my family and I are in desperate need of help but don't exactly know how to go about it. I have an almost one year old and my fiancée son and I are stuck in an area with no jobs andinner so we have no income whatsoever we can't move do to our lack of money and we have a deadline we have to be out of my father's place by. I'm not sure exactly what resources we can get I've been looking but it's very confusing to me. We really need to find a home but are at a loss on what to do...if anyone has any helpful information please let me know. Thank you

that sounds like my family. I helped them for years, now they don't even care if I am alive or dead. find a new place and don't tell them, just move out turn off the power and water

I am a retired nurse and Army veteran that needs a little help. Lost my husband last year to cancer and my children decided to move in . That is where I made a mistake. Although they are grown , they expect me to be their built in babysitter and expect that I should supply them with food housing and up until my car was running a taxi service . My daughter is a mechanic by trade but has refused to even look at my car. I have lost out on schooling and various other things cause I am trapped in a unsafe place. while my car sat on the street the gang people shot out its back windshield
