This is really hard for me to do. I didn’t think I would be in this situation and for so long. I am a college graduate who met the future father of my kids at 28. He love bombed me and I thought there could never be anything better. I had 3 kids in 4 years. If I really looked the verbal abuse and manipulation was always there. He was always lying and cheating. The physical abuse started after kid number 3. I had no way of working because our 2nd born child was diagnosed as autistic at 18 months, she is severe. This was very hard . I love my kids and stayed with him so they could have a roof over there head. He has kicked me out with no money and no place to go 25 times, with our two youngest at the time. The emotional abuse is almost worse than the physical abuse A lot of ugliness. A lot of manipulation so I blamed myself. I had a fourth kid with him three years ago. An accident. She has also been diagnosed with autism. I have no one to help me so I can work. I have been kicked out again for taking to long at dollar general. I need a place to go with my kids and than he can’t hold it over me anymore and me and my kids can be free. Please help me.
Emergency Rental, Food, and Bills Assistance Programs
How to get help with rent?
At times, many families find themselves homeless, or unable to continue to occupy the premises of their choice. This may be due to fire, accident, storms or many other causes, but often it is merely a problem in paying the rent. Illness that forces a breadwinner to stay home, or loss of a job; any and all of these conditions can put a family in need of temporary assistance to tide itself over until the members of the family find themselves again in a position to pay their own rent without the need of subsidising or other rental assistance.
Agencies have been set up in many parts of the country to help in this regard. Non-profit organizations, these charities, such as The Salvation Army, as well as some governmental agencies are often able to offer emergency rental assistance for families who are being evicted by a landlord, or who simply have no way to pay their rent at the moment. Realizing that landlords, despite the old cartoon imagery of a rich greedy person feeding off the work of renters, the vast majority of landlords are not really making a profit at all on the current tenant. This is only a stopgap so that the landlord may pay the monthly house payments in the hope of some future profit if housing increases in value some years later. If the tenant can’t pay the rent, the landlord may soon find himself in the same position with regard to the lender. Lenders do not want to hear sad stories.
Although these different programs for rental assistance may be available, much depends upon the funding at the moment. Some programs quickly run out of money and are simply unable at the moment to provide further help to persons in need of assistance.
The vast majority of families in need of temporary rental assistance are those to be found in the low-income range; seniors, disable persons and children are among those most often affected. Others too, faced at one point or another with a temporary emergency may qualify for assistance in these cases.
In most cases, those in need of longer-term assistance, persons who have not been gainfully employed for a considerable length of time with not prospects for the immediate future may not qualify for rental assistance under these temporary emergency programs.
Those more likely to receive aid are persons who are able to convince interviewers of their willingness to do what is necessary to get back on their feet along with the ability to do so. Since emergency funding is considered a short-term “fix” for a crisis situation, the grants may be only issued for a few days, perhaps to defray the cost of a motel room, pending the applicant’s ability to find other lodgings.
Therefore it is important, in most similar cases, for the applicant to show the interviewer the imminent possibility to become self-sufficient.
Most non-profit agencies as well as other agencies attempt to work closely with rental assistance applicants to help them with any additional support as needed depending upon each applicant’s situation. Often applicants are further given counseling and referrals to other agencies that may be more helpful to an applicant.
In such cases, any additional services rendered are free to the applicant in crisis. This may include lack of employment and such other problems that may arise such as medical emergencies. Most agencies participate in these endeavors as well as teaching applicants the processes involved in applying for governmental programs, immediate rehousing and how to apply for Section 8 vouchers as well as information about low income housing, and assistance in paying the security deposits that are almost universally demanded by today’s rental market.
Since the goal of all similar agencies to to render aid to persons in immediate need of emergency housing and other crisis situations, the funds issued to applicants for rent or other necessities is only meant to allow the applicant extra time to deal with the emergency. However, at the same time, applicants will normally be provided with support in the long term to guard against similar future emergencies.
If you have an eviction notice or expect to be unable to pay the rent in the immediate future, or even realize that you need to find less expensive living quarters, now is the time to apply for assistance. Often with early application, money may be available to catch up unpaid rent as well as other options that may be explained to you.
Assistance may also be available to help with the security deposit, the initial rents and even moving costs. In some cities non-profit agencies may offer other emergency assistance to those in crisis. These funds are normally paid out on a one-time basis. Depending upon the location, resources that may be in place for housing crisis families can be wide-ranging.
Potential applicants are advised to find the telephone numbers as well as any other information available to them and educate themselves about the different programs that may be able to help with emergency assistance.
Not only non-profit private agencies, but many governmental agencies, are able to provide interim assistance, depending on the locality. Massachusetts has a program called RAFT, while in Texas a rental assistance program called TDHCA is available. Florida has a similar program called EFAHP and in Connecticut their program is called RAP. Many other government programs around the country also offer assistance to pay rent or a portion of overdue rent in their ongoing efforts to reduce the growing threat of homelessness in their particular communities.
Another program, called the Federal Stimulus Program is a little-known program through which our federal government provides billions of dollars across the nation to provide rental assistance for qualified applicants. These funds have become invaluable to families that find it increasingly difficult to keep up with the rising costs of rent and other housing needs.
HUD the Housing and Urban Development, agency works throughout the country as well. A number of families approaching two million are able to use this program, a program that can not only help those in need to pay their rent and/or security deposits, but HUD can issue vouchers to provide temporary housing as well as providing assistance to senior citizens and the disabled to keep up with overdue rental payments.
These programs not only offer grants to help pay rent, but the government Rent Voucher Program aids applicants to seek housing in the privately owned housing market.
These agencies can, generally, offer legal advice to those facing eviction. Every year millions of people receive free legal advice and assistance to educate them with the eviction process and their rights as well as responsibilities. The government provides funded Legal Services Corp. which provides attorneys who may mediate a solution between landlord and tenants in addition to advising tenants of their rights as well as help them apply for Section 8 or other assistance and another positive aid they offer is help and counseling on housing discrimination.
Counseling may also be provided to help applicants apply for government and/or private grants. Money is available for many of these crisis situations.
It is the goal of these agencies to prevent evictions wherever possible. The federal government as well as the many non-profit private agencies strive wherever possible to help applicants remain in their current quarters without the fear of being summarily evicted. Often these agencies are able not only to prevent evictions, but subsequent lawsuits that may be brought against a tenant. Alternatively, the agency may be able to find more suitable and affordable housing for an applicant facing eviction.
Many churches too offer funds that can help those in short-term financial difficulties. United Way and The Salvation Army are only two of the better-known charitable institutions that may be able to offer help when needed. Generally they give priority to those living in apartments and facing short-term financial crises.
A good number of other national and local charities are ready to help with the expenses of rent and other essential needs as well as providing case management and many other social services. No all charities have ready money all the time, but even those may be able to help by helping an applicant with information about other resources and assistance in applying for free grants to pay overdue rent.
Other agencies that often provide help might be, for example, Catholic Charities, Social Service Offices, United Way, the American Red Cross, the Legal Aid Society and as mentioned earlier, The Salvation Army. Aside from these examples there exist many other emergency aid agencies for those who are able to become informed.
While most of these programs provide only short-term emergency aid, they are designed for the most part to tide a family over until a longer-term solution becomes available. Often these same agencies will be able to direct qualified applicants to resources that may assist them in finding an apartment or house for more permanent security.
It is important however, during these times of crisis, to keep in touch with creditors and the applicant’s current landlord so they understand what you are doing and what you expect to accomplishment. It is important that the applicant be extremely honest with everyone about the situation and it may sometimes be possible to have monthly payments temporarily lowered, or even be allowed to skip a monthly rental payment. Other plans may be devised and put into place to avoid being evicted.
It is well-understood that not only landlords but other creditors too are much more willing to cooperate with persons who are up-front with them, honest in their discussions and show a willingness to cooperate and do whatever they can to improve with situations.
How to get help with bills?
Ask The Energy Company
if energy bills are the source of the hardship, then the energy providers’ own in-house programs are often the quickest way to help rearrange and meet repayments.
LIHEAP: Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program
This national program’s focus is on subsidies for repairs, weatherproofing and utility bills that families cannot afford to pay.
LIHEAP covers any energy related home repairs for low-icome families, including seasonal expenses like air cooling systems and winter heating bills. The local LIHEAP office is the first point of contact for those in need of energy or utility assistance. Eligibility varies from state to state.
WAP: Weatherization Assistance Program
The WAP is a federal grant organized by the Department of Energy that helps needy families improve their homes’ energy efficiency, and has assisted over 7 million households across many states, territories and Native American tribes since its inception in 1976.
According to the DOE guidelines, a household with anyone over 60 is eligible for the WAP, as are legally recognized disabled people. Most states make families with children eligible, and the website for the WAPTAC (Weatherization Assistance Program Technical Assistance Center) can advise others if the grants are available in their area, and whether they qualify.
LifeLine Assistance: Free Cell Phones
Americans in need of a cell phone plan but without the means to maintain one can get assistance from LifeLine Assistance‘s free phone program. This is indeed a lifeline as daily life and business in particular is practically impossible without a mobile phone.
LLA is an FCC mandated scheme offering a free cell phone with at least 250 monthly minutes included. It’s available in the 49 states, Washington DC and Puerto Rico, and typically requires a household income below 135% of Federal Poverty guidelines. For some states it is below 150%. Eligibility varies across participating states, with slightly different rules around qualifying income.
Other sources of help are available at state government level, or many national and local non-profit and charity organizations, and the energy companies themselves.
How to get Food For Free?
It doesn’t always require money to eat, and there are many ways to gain free food without adding to your debts or joining the 10% of Americans who have resorted to shoplifting. Ask people you know, or traders and restaurant and store owners.
Above all it’s important to explain why you are asking for food: because you can’t afford to eat. And not to be critical about what food you eat. Without a certain amount of money, there is no longer the choice of what to eat. So meat may become harder to get or if meat’s all that’s on offer and you are a vegetarian, it’s best to accept it with thanks.
Grow Your Own, Share With The Community
The most sustainable – and satisfying – way to provide free food for yourself is to grow it, and you can start with just seeds if you live in the country or with just a small space in the city. Guerrilla gardening is an interesting urban option, more organised community gardens and allotments can share space and expertise for growing, and seed swapping communities among gardeners are a good source of materials and encouragement.
Ask A Farmer
Out in the sticks there won’t be the option of stores and restaurants as a source of food, but ask any farmer and there’ll be some left on the fields that they didn’t or can’t sell. Many will let you pick these leftovers.
A rapidly growing movement in the United Kingdom and US is the organized and charitable distribution of food to those who can’t afford it. Most of the food is donated, and food banks are one of the easiest ways to obtain some nutritious food. Many banks have conditions for who they can give food to, but there is no need to be ashamed about visiting one.
Links to Food Banks in various countries
Offers and coupons
Online and direct from the stores, many coupons are available to promote new products. And companies across the United States send out free samples of new products. They’re unlikely to provide a healthy, balanced diet on their own but could supplement free food from other sources.
In an affluent country there is an abundance of unsold or waste food, and a little social interaction and resourcefulness can unlock access to a surprising amount of it.
Ask at the market
Often around closing time, stall holders will sell off any remaining stock for next to nothing, and it’s always worth telling them you have no money and asking if they’ll give you something for free. You can often pick up some fruit or salad, and if they can’t offer anything, thank them anyway and ask at another stall.
Free Supermarket Food
Ask at the big stores and you’ll be too far down the chain of command: “My boss doesn’t allow us to do that” will be the usual answer. So smaller supermarkets and neighborhood stores are a better option, where you can talk to that boss. You may find warmth and generosity among Muslims and immigrants to the West who run stores.
It requires some patience, a little nerve and a bit of practice, but it’s possible to get free, professionally prepared food, even a table to sit and eat it at. Restaurant districts in cities are obviously the best place to try this, and expect a success rate around 5%, so it requires persistence, but will sharpen your bargaining skills, and who knows where else that could lead?
Turn up at a restaurant after the busiest time but not too late, and explain that you have no money and ask if they have some left overs in the kitchen. It can help to have a container such as a plastic box ready in case they do have something, and if they’re friendly and can’t offer anything the first time, maybe they can put something aside the next day.
Searching and Foraging
It grows on trees, on the ground and some seasons there’ll be abundant fruit and tasty plants such as dandelions or chickweed. Even cities can produce some tasty wild food, and anyone near downtown Seattle has access to America’s first Food Forest in a major city.
Growing media coverage of the colossal food wastage at supermarkets and restaurants has made it much less weird, and more popular, to search through the dumpsters in search of some quality food to turn into a meal.
A little about my situation. I’m a pipe welder for sprinkler and plumbing pipe here in Atlanta. My fiancé has been unemployed since March from her job of 7 yrs. she’s working at Cvs now and we are both doordashing after work just to make ends meet except they aren’t meeting. I have been an essential worker during this pandemic but we have been so slow the last 2 months I’m barely getting any hours. The bulk of our income was her check but now with my check being cut back it’s virtually impossible. She has some promising job offers but nothing is going to transpire until after the holidays. We have struggled to pay the rent for several months but this month I have no idea how we are going to do it. She is panicked and I’m exhausted with trying to find the money. It’s a huge ask I know. The amount needed is 1500 and I need it today before they start the eviction process. I fully would intend to pay it back as efficiently and quickly as I can. I just don’t know where else to turn or what to do. I have tried every reputable personal loan known to man and nothing. I’m working on repairing my credit but this year has been a huge obstacle with that. I feel like this is asking for a miracle and I don’t know if anything will come of it but as a grown man who’s never asked for a dime and who has no pride left to stop him please help me pay the rent. I’m hoping and praying a generous soul will see this and help.
Thank you all. My paypal link is PayPal.me/dlloros
I’ve never been the one to ask for money. I am always on the other end of it helping people out when I can so this is a humbling experience to say the least. When signing up, it asked me what the money is for and wants me to put it in a category and wow that’s hard for me. Hmm.. what do I need help with? Well I have a 17 year old who is in high school and college and her tuition is coming due again and I don’t have it. I’m also paying monthly so she can go on an overseas trip the summer of 2022 and I’m scared to death I won’t have the money to pay this month. Then there’s the thing that set me over the edge. For the last couple months everyone in my house is constantly sick. Well come to find out it’s mold. It’s everywhere in my house. My roof leaks and my landlord won’t do anything about it. We moved into the house very quickly in 2017 after having a house fire and losing everything so I’ve just dealt with putting up with a landlord who doesn’t fix anything but now I can’t. My poor girls don’t deserve to live like we are but I just don’t have the money for first, last and a deposit. So right now anything will help us. It will go towards school tuition, bills or moving. I will pay it forward as soon as I can. It’s the only way I would ever feel ok with taking money from anyone. Whether you can help me or just read my rant.
I thank you so much. My PayPal is SarahAnne80

Hello, my name is Marihia. I unfortunately am asking for some money because I’ve fallen behind on bills. The pandemic has caused me to lose my job and I was left with having to use my savings. My savings has now ran out. I’ve applied for jobs and do side jobs like Postmates, TaskRabbit and try selling some used items from my home but I’m barely able to make ends meet now. I’ve fallen behind on just about every bill (rent, phone, electric, water, insurance, car, medical bills, credit card) Ideally I would need $4000 to get caught up and ahead just a bit. Of course I genuinely appreciate any amount that can be given. Thank you for taking the time to read this and considering me.
My name is Audriana. The purpose of starting this fundraising is so that I can have a better job.
Due to the pandemic my husband got laid off from his job. I still currently work as a house keeper in Cedars Sinai hospital. I’ve been working double shifts trying to keep up with the rent & utilities bills. Still we had to take from our savings.
So I decided to enroll for nursing school so that I can have better income.
I hope to raise $5000 in total. This amount will be enough for school and to catch up on our bills.
Any amount you give is very much appreciated! You can send your donation to this link:
Thank you & God bless
Let me start by saying, I acknowledge that the children are fed and attending school (at home).
I’m a single father who has a 5 and 9 yr old both beautiful boys. I have 50/50 custody of them though the mother has opt’d to leave them in my care as long as I continue to pay child support. I worked that out legally with our court, here’s the issue though:
Before I got that worked out She left them in my care and I paid just fine however 6 month ago I lost my job due to a covid related field. I worked in a dentist office as an office manager it was a small chain that was very shaky with money to begin with but covid hit and the owners had to close all the offices. I got help with small amount of unemployment no covid pay for it though and for 6ish months have had a hard time paying the child support I made payments but not enough, I’ve since received a letter saying i’m going to court to decide whether or not I will be incarcerated for back child support that I owed before it was legally in my favor to have the children.
I have 8 days to find 1500$ or I will most likely be going to jail as my lawyer has advised that I will most likely be thrown in there.
I have a new job that I start in 2 weeks which wont be within the 8 days to pay a the 1500 to avoid going to court and once the court date is set my only option is to pay it in full but that’s not possible with my job i’m starting.
The divorce ruined my credit and destroyed my life the only thing I have in the world are my 2 wonderful boys who cry at the thought of having to leave my home again.
Please, I dont need Christmas money I dont need food money I dont need money for electric or wifi I just need money to stay out of jail long enough for my job to start paying me.
If you can find it in your heart I would gladly show you any form of proof you ask and keep you updated or repay when I can.

hello my name is Angel Hayes and I really need help to move from where I’m at. My roommate raped me and I have no family to turn to. My roommate is abusive and I need out. The only friend I could stay with lives in a chicago and I live in Louisiana and I just need enough money to get there. I would appreciate any help I can’t stay here anymore I don’t feel safe and it’s really taking a toll on my mental. I don’t know what amount I could ask for maybe $300 would be fine so I can get a plane ticket and have money when I get to chicago. Please help !! I am grateful for anything
Hi there. This is Jack here. I am unemployed due to the pandemic and have been unable to find consistent, reliable, income-producing work anywhere. I graduated college earlier this year, and was meant to work abroad in San Francisco this summer on a J-1 work and travel visa. Unfortunately, the lockdown thwarted this plan. I am seeking a $500 USD loan, which I will pay back once I start producing cashflow for myself again.
I have been searching for remote jobs relentlessly, hearing back from very few companies and getting a phone interview with just one, which was unsuccessful. Then I resorted to freelancing. I have found some online work as a freelance editor and proofreader via Upwork and Facebook, but these gigs are poorly paid and I rarely get hired. I applied for a lot of Upwork positions I was very qualified for and heard nothing back from most hiring managers. On Facebook, I advertise my services in various writing and editing groups. I reach out to people, and many times they reach out to me. They express an interest in working with me, then they suddenly go completely cold. It’s extremely frustrating. I have also done some usability testing with UserTesting. They pay 10$ USD for a 20 minute testing session. That said, I’m lucky if I get accepted for one test per week, as you have to qualify for the test before you can take it.
I have rent covered until 31 December but I used the remnants of my savings to cover it. My cash situation is dire right now. I’m down to 270 Mexican pesos in cash at present (about $14 USD). My bank balance is €0.52 (I have attached a photo of this).
I’m Irish but moved to Mexico in October to pursue a real estate career. I am working in a real estate agency as a junior sales agent. This role is 100% commission based and I have not closed a deal yet. It’s tough because the job is demanding and I am not getting regular income from it. As I said, I’ve got no income at all yet. I’m willing to push through though because real estate is my passion and I don’t quit. I just need a loan to cover my essential living expenses for December and January. $500 USD will do just that.
I have been living extremely frugally since I got here. I’m not eating enough and have lost a lot of weight (my diet consists almost solely of pastries and a few small street tacos, as they are the cheapest foods here). It is getting harder to go out and try to earn as I am becoming increasingly malnourished.
My situation is getting really hard to be frank with you. It’s a fiasco. My family was hit hard by this pandemic and they are unable to help me out. My mental heath is starting to suffer because I have absolutely no idea where my next income source will come from, how much it will be or when it will be. I don’t like saying all of this but I am in desperate need of a loan. I would be massively, massively grateful beyond words if anyone could help me out. I will continue to grind, level up and look for income, but my environment is turning destitute. Please give me a hand — you’d be getting me out of a real big bind. As I said, when I start earning, you will get your $500 USD back.

Hello! Thank you to whoever is reading this, I don’t usually look to strangers on the internet for help but I have found myself in a sticky situation. At the moment I am in an unsafe household trying to move away quickly, however I have a credit card bill that needs to be paid immediately or they will withhold my paychecks and I will have no money at all. This is the only credit card I have ever owned (and the only one I will own ever again) and I just need help with this so I can move out of my current situation.
Hello anyone willing & able to help. Im a 38 year old father of 4 living with my wife and 4 kids. Kids are 2, 4, 10, 13. Been married 8 years of the 10 we’ve been together. Was always doing well financially until this last year and a half. We currently rent to own our home, and have 2 car payments. Unfortunately 1 of the cars we pay for hasn’t been running in almost a year. I have been working steady for almost 3 years now making decent money. Heres the catch though, my wife hasn’t been working in almost a year now. She has some mental health issues also which she’s actively being treated for. Between child care, not having our second vehicle running and covid19 it’s been a downward spiral. My income just gets us by. Literally enough to pay so we keep our home and 1 vehicle running. Its getting to the point we can’t pay energy bills and water bills. On top of needing internet for schooling purposes since our oldest children are all virtual due to covid19. Can barely pay internet which is on the verge of being shut off as I write this. All in all… To get our second vehicle running is about 500.00, were behind about 500.00 in energy bills, and 600.00 in water bills. Our internet bill is 150.00 behind. We also have 2 cats and a dog who need vet work but that’s obviously less pressing but just as saddening and frustrating adding too our issues. I cant help but cry a lot with the stress of being a parent and working all the time just to pay rent, car ins, car payments, cell phone bills and any extra necessities we truly need. Luckily we do receive food share money that covers food expenses. In the end Im grateful for whatever amount of help Im given. Im not even expecting or truly hopeful someone on here will actually give us free money. It’s more less a shot in the dark to have a blessing or good karma come back at me in my life. My wife doesn’t even know Im doing this. I try not to put financial stress on her considering her issues on top of always having to deal with the kids at home. I bare the weight of this stress and its eating away at me because I work so hard to get ahead. We have been desperately awaiting another Government stimulus to pass but Washington politics could care less about our struggles. I don’t want to put a specific dollar amount on what Im asking for because any help is good help. If I was to put an amount out there I’d ask for about $5000.00 if I was granted that blank check wish. So if your a person who can understand my struggle and truly have the money to help without hurting your finances please consider giving anything. Maybe this holiday season could turn out for the better! Thank You for taking your time to read my plea. It means a lot to me and maybe Ill be able to surprise my family.
I am going to start by giving a quick summery of my situation and the help I desperately need (my heart rendered in text right after) .
In a nutshell I am newly homeless but I have a car (I purchased it with the stimulus check as a cushion for the approaching impact with rock bottom). My only hope for carving a path to stability is keeping it for shelter and transportation to future jobs/interviews etc.. I have a cell phone atm and that’s about it for my property aside from some clothes. I need $65 dollars to pay my car insurance (liability only thank god) or the car will end up getting towed/impounded, I will be arrested for driving without insurance (I live in Georgia.. No insurance is instant jail and impound) and I will be fined and put on probation.. I wont be able to pay the fines nor get the car out of impound which will result in violation of probation and I’ll be made to serve the remaining probation in jail. I am speaking as though it is inevitable because it is. There are county, city and state police by the literal thousands here and they have these scanners on thier cars that automatically run every tag they pass so if my insurance lapses they will be alerted when the tag is ran (everything is integrated and online here).
Second: I just discovered an app called Tasker/Task Rabbit that seems like it would change my life as I can do a myriad of odd jobs at my own pace and have a pretty broad range of skills but of COURSE they require a one time registration fee of $25-$30 dollars if memory serves… So just like pretty much everything else money is standing between me and hope for improvement. The bill I have is my cell phone @ $40 but I am willing to let it lapse and use Wifi from a fast food place to conduct taking jobs/payment etc if it means securing my insurance payment. Oh yeah, if it were to lapse and i managed to avoid getting towed/arrested I would have to come up with a down payment to start a new policy after the late payment period ends in 14 days.. Another impossibility…
If someone out there is in a position to help me with any amount up to what I need (praying maybe several people will see this and send small amounts eventually meeting my need) it would be a miracle to me and I’d gladly return the money if income is found eventually. DEFCON 1 amount needed is $65. Next in priority is $25-$30 to register Tasker account for jobs and last and optional is $40 for my phone bill but not imperative. My cashapp ID is $jwdoe. https://www.paypal.me/Jwdoe5880. I have Venmo and chime as well but have never really used them so I don’t know the ID’s off the top of my head.. If one of them is needed please LMK and I will figure out the relevant info. This is already a wall of text but i wanted to follow this with details regarding why I am where I am but I guess I’ll just give some quick bullet points… Any elaboration desired will be provided upon request.
-My immediate family is 98% dead. Father and older Brother passed when I was a teen.
-Mother can barely keep things afloat on single income supporting dead beat stepđad that hates me and does everything possible to thwart contact between my mother and I (pretty sure he see’s my opinions as threatening to his comfy situation). Aside from all that, she worked 3 jobs to finish raising me after dad passed so even if she had extra money I would hang myself before I took ultra deserved savings from her.
– At 21 I made around 25 dollars an hour as a production manager / press operator in the printing industry…. That is also the year I met / fell totally and irreparably in love with who would become my ex fiance. I worked up to 120 hours a few weeks (20 a day, 6 days a week. No joke) and always a least 80 to provide for my “dream-girl” and start building our life.
– All that time at work meant the ex had tons of unsupervised time alone with no job… which she used to start doing opiates and cheating on me to a degree I don’ want to fully know.
-I discovered the addiction by getting arrested on the way out of Wal-Mart. Unbeknownst to me she had concealed stuff in her large purse and was shoplifting said items to liquidate for drug money as her hab3bit was well beyond what she could spend with reasonable explanation from our money and screwing other men wasn’t always profitable. Side note: In GA if you are with someone during the commission of a crime you are charged equally and have to prove your innocence in court.
-I ended up having to plea out to 4 years probation on felony shoplifting as a first offender because if i took it to trial and lost I could’ve gotten up to 10 years prison and my county bullies pleas by throwing the book at trial losers… My lawyer said it’s your word vs loss prevention and my ex refused to admit i wasn’t involved because (as i was learning) she is a succubus insane person that wanted me to be with her through whatever punishment came…
-Obviously I left her, served probation… Officer with my case got fired, I was lost in the system for a couple years and once they found my file in the old officers desk they freaked out and violated me… spent the last 10 months in jail.
-Upon reentering society I began to have some pretty unbearable symptoms that turned out to be the Hepatitis C she gave me. Several years into it and I am more or less disabled as far daily labor is concerned. I am in constant and all encompassing exhaustion/pain/depression/loss of mental capacity (liver isn’t filtering blood, toxins poison neurons and throw of brain chemistry causing debilitating depression).
-A cure has recently been discovered but since its a one time use product that illuminates its target market, it is around $80,000 and will remain there until the patent runs out nd generics can be sold. I can’t afford to see a doctor to determine my genotype let alone pay that kind of money. Might as well be a million dollars.
-Ŧhe icing on the cake is that my best friend turned out to be a master of the long con and stabbed me in the back / threw me under the bus. Turns out he too had an opiate addiction and once caught he blamed his continued use on me and told his wife / family I was essentially his dealer and was giving it to him for free (unemployed, stuck at home when caught) which is ludicrousness but it fit for his family because I had told them about what my ex had been doing in the shadows so he twisted that into the real truth being that I was also a junky and kept him hooked fir free while he was between jobs because i wanted his money when he found a new one… The heroin he was on averages a a low tolerance user between $50 and $100 a day… I had just had my entire world destroyed, my money stolen by my ex and my freedom taken from me all within a relatively short time.. there is no way I could fund someone else’ drug habit.. My last close relationship was sacrificed to save face and cover up whatever he was really up to which must have been serious/bad because he gutted me without hesitation…
-There are other traumatic events and horrific emotional events linked by bad luck but I already feel like this will never be read…. I am completely alone in this world.. My health and mind are failing and look forward to my last day on this planet with joy. I am not suicidal, I don’t believe I get to choose when I die, but I am far beyond miserable and have lost everyone and everything essentially by being a good boyfriend / friend, working hard and being honest to my loved ones which would eventually be the weapons used to carve out my soul… Please for the love of god, if you can… Help me pay my car insurance… I can eat dumpster donuts behind dunkin D’s when they throw out the stale and make new ones… I can’t panhandle because i can’t face bothering people like that and the Hep screwing with my mind has made me develop some social anxiety issues and most importantly, Its an arrest if observed by the police where i live… Please just one time in my life make this problem go away for the month… I can’t take much more failure or sink much lower than the bottom… I am a man of faith and I believe that all of this has an ultimate purpose and I will carry my burdens as far as our creator requires .. But it sure would help me hold on during dark times if fate sees fit to send me some relief via one of you guys out there. Please forgive typos and punctuation etc… its 4 aṃ. And I’m on a phone in car… Pṣ. I’m all but out of time.. i have a few days to make the payment. I am afraid to post a picture of my insurance bill as I fear my personal information being used to further ruin my life… Thank you for even considering my situation…
Hello, my name is Nicki and this is what little life we have left. My husband, David, was diagnosed with ALS in 2016. But first let me lay it all out. David lost his mother November 2014. Well his father couldn’t live alone , so me and david packed up, gave away, and sold everything we had and moved in with his father. So I done everything to take care of Daddy and David. Took them both to doctor appointments. Took care of everything around the house, done all the cooking, you know all the things a good wife/daughter is suppose to do. In mid 2018 Daddy started getting sick. Found out he had bladder cancer. I was the one that took him back and forth for treatment, I was the one up all night when he was sick and couldn’t sleep, and I was the one back and forth and sitting all day at the hospital with him. Now let me tell you he has 2 daughters and 3 sons. Okay one daughter lives about 10 minutes from the hospital, the other far away. One son is sick and disabled and the other lives far away, and of course David who lives with him. And not one of them would ask if I needed a break or needed anything. Well February 2019 we lost daddy. But in between all this we found out David has ALS. Now the present time, I have not had a break in taking care of my husband. I had to quit working in March 2019 to stay home and take care of him. At the present time he stays in bed except to eat and go to the restroom. He can only walk maybe 20 or 25 feet at the most. He cannot use his hands and right now he is losing the ability to walk in his right leg. The only income we have is his social security. The day we receive it, it’s gone. I can’t seem to get us caught up. Right now we are in the hole right around $2500. And I know that doesn’t seem to be alot to some, but we did have at one time a savings account with $5000 in it and a checking with a little less than that. Now we don’t have a savings and the checking we have is only for his check to be direct deposited to. I never thought we would be in this position. I certainly never thought I would be on a place like this begging for help. I just need to get things caught up so we may try to enjoy what life my husband has left. Right now we don’t enjoy anything. I don’t even have enough money to take him to the doctor when he needs to go. I so hope the good Lord is watching over us and helps someone to find in their heart to help us. Please if you can find it in your heart to help us have just a little piece of happiness one day I will have a chance to pay it forward and that I will do.I was raised you work for what you want or do without. David has worked all his life and I have also, except during 2 pregnancies. He deserves more, no one deserves this disease and they definitely don’t deserve to worry about money during this time either. Thank you so very much for taking time out of your day to read my story. God bless you all!!!

Hello and thank you for taking the time to read my story. I am asking for 100,000 dollars to rebuild my home. I know this an astronomical amount to ask for, and I will try my best to explain my situation.
My two sons and myself had recently moved into a home on October 26 2020. After moving in and organizing a bit my oldest son an myself called it a night and went to bed as my youngest went out with a friend.
That same night, I awoke to my son coming in the front door where upon entry started calling out and yelling “there’s a fire”. My oldest son and myself met him in the living room and all three of us escaped unharmed.
Had he not come home at that particular time the outcome would have been unthinkable as within minutes of our exit, the home was fully consumed in smoke and heat.
We are immensely grateful to the fact we are all together and unharmed.
The fire started in the kitchen due to an electrical short. The insurance is covering the damage and repairs and have gutted the entire home top to bottom. This is where the nightmare starts. After exposing the framework of the upper level it has been brought to light that the bedrooms upstairs do not meet code requirements. From joist load capacity to fire safety and exit codes and much more.
These issues have to be dealt with before I can reclaim use of my upper level. These issues are not covered by insurance and to be paid for by myself. While investigating the route to get this done I quickly realized my financial position will not allow for any of this.
I am on long term disability and have been unable to work for 4 years now.
After 3 Surgeries to remedy a kidney condition called Loin Pain Hematuria Syndrome I still struggle with constant flank pain and have lost my right kidney as well as having my left removed and transplanted to my lower abdomen. The pain is more often than not debilitating and results in many trips month to the ER to get it under control. My Doctor’s are at a bit of a loss as to how to further treat me as this condition is quite rare
I sold my previous home as I could no longer meet the mortgage payments.
I made a decision to put everything I had into the new home purchased in an attempt to ease the financial burden of mortgage. It was a plan to be mortgage free. A plan which I could maintain on my benefits. It was a sound plan until the fire and the can of worms that opened with it.
I apologize for my long story. There really is so much more to tell but I think I’ve reached the point where I will struggle and ask for help.
I know what I am asking for is a lot, and I feel ashamed to be asking. I’m in a position where I take my losses and hope for the best or extend my hand and ask for help. This is something I’ve never had to do, something I’ve never wanted to have to do. To be honest I wish I could help others rather than need help myself.
Any help I receive will be greatly appreciated and never forgotten. Somewhere in the future is a point where I can help make someone’s life better and I’m looking forward to it.
Thank-you so much for reading my story and stay healthy and safe.
I’ve never turned to a website like this to ask for assistance, generally I try to avoid asking for help at all costs, especially financial help. It’s hard for me to ask for assistance because it forces me to become vulnerable and I don’t like to show weakness – I’m a single father of two beautiful, smart and tenacious little girls (5 and 3 years old), so protecting my daughters at all cost is my priority, and showing weakness makes me feel as if I am letting that protective barrier down, but at some point realizing this is no longer selfishly about my pride and now about the basic needs for my girls, I understand that at some point – I need to push my feelings aside and ensure they are provided for.
Throughout COVID, I’ve been able to keep squeezing out the minimum amount of hours at work to keep the lights on, secure the roof over our head, keep food on the table and supplies for the girls. Katie-Lynn (my 5 year old) requires Kidney medication in order to keep her body function normal, granted this medication doesn’t cost hundreds of dollars every month, but it does cost money, and it is a basic necessity for her health – so I would sell all of the clothes off of my back to make sure her prescription is filled every month. Over the last 3 and a half months, my work can no longer supply me the minimum hours needed for me to cover all of the basics … this has left me in the situation I am in … we are in.
My gas bill has fallen behind, while my total balance is at $322, the amount that I need to pay to avoid it being shut off is $178, which is the amount I am here begging for. I do not like being someone else’s burden or inconveniencing others – I do my best to help everyone when I am able, that has hurt me and it has helped me, I am hoping my karma is high enough to cash in for this emergency. The last thing I could ever bare are my little girls not receiving the basics that I should be able to provide as a parent. When my wife passed away, we had to overcome that hurdle, it’s still hard to bare every morning when I wake up, when my daughters ask about their mother and all I can give to them are the best memories of my life with her, but not her physically. Keeping these two little girls healthy is the most important thing to me.
I would appreciate any and all help, I know I’m just another person on this site dealing with another personal problem that whomever reading has no obligation to even give a second thought to – but any assistance that can be spared will mean the world to me, and allow me to try and give the world to my babies which they deserve more than anything. I’d like to thank you for at least taking the time to read my story if anything.
