I don't know which state you are but theres Federal help of transitional housing program and they should be able to help you with rent, utilities and weekly allowances for food for your and your daughter until you get on your feet.  I'm a member of a Family Support Group in my community and we have families that they're on this program.  Please contact your local Shelter and ask them of this program.  They should be able to help you.  I'm a single mom of three kids and I do understand your frustration.  Good luck to you...

My husband and I have both lost our jobs in the past 3 years.  While we are currently working full-time, unfortunately it is not at the rate of pay we were currently making at our long term jobs (9 years and 17 years).  We have filed bankruptcy and are in risk of having our home foreclosed upon.  Our family (including a 3 year old and 5 year old) is now without health insurance because our budget can not afford anything additional.

 I've looked to all of these government programs for help with our mortgage issue, but because we're in bankruptcy no one wants to help.  By the way, we filed Chapter 13, so we are trying to pay back our debts.

 Someone please help!  We're at our wits' end!

My name is Brandy and I am a 30 yr. old mother of 3. I am in desperate need of help with my teeth. I have severe tooth pain all the time and they break from eating almost anything. I went to the dentist yesterday and it is going to cost me 3900.00 to get all of my teeth fixed. Every tooth I have that doesn't have to be extracted has to be worked on.  I can't eat hardly anything because I have so many broken ones and I haven't been able to smile without my hand covering my mouth for years now. I have called several dentists in my city and none of them offer a payment plan. My teeth are twice as bad as they were just 13 months ago and if I don't get them fixed soon I am really going to be in trouble. Please, anyone that would be willing to help me with this I would appreciate it more than I could ever say.  I can email pictures to prove how bad they are. I could make payments also, I just have no credit and am in desperate need!

Frank Vernacchio is a husband, father, grandfather and long time resident of Delaware County.  Frank is a self employed auto body repairman who suddenly suffered a heart attack which subsequently led to quadruple heart by-pass surgery and a long lengthy rehabilitation.  In this day and age it's unfortunate that many people suffer from cardiac illnesses; however in Frank's case it may be his passion for others that put the strain on his heart.  You see, Frank has touched the lives of not hundreds but thousands of families.  He is best known for being the guy who will 'Give you the shirt off his back'.

In addition to his auto body career, many years ago Frank began to get involved in youth ice hockey in the community.   Since then, Frank has volunteered thousands of hours to kids in the community sharpening their skates and using his technical skills to save families added expense by repairing their hockey equipment.  Because of Frank's generosity thousands of children are able to participate in something positive which is priceless in today's society.  Franks skills are not limited to just auto body and hockey, he is a knowledgeable person with a lifetime worth of experience that he has always offered to both friends and strangers.  He would sacrifice his own needs to help others without expecting any financial reward.  Frank is one in a million who sincerely helps others from the heart.  With that being said, now Frank needs our help.  Because of his recent health problems, Frank for the first time in over six decades is unable to work and will face financial hardships.  We, "The Friends of Frank"  (FOF) are reaching out desperately seeking help from any professionals and business owners who could make contributions or donations to help us raise money to help Frank in this time of need.

Anything you can offer will be greatly appreciated.  FOF is currently hosting a benefit on April 5, 2008 at the St. Kevin's Hall in Springfield to raise money for Frank and his family.  We are currently looking for items to be raffled off as well as paper goods, food, beverages and any other items that are used in these fundraiser's.

If there is anyone out there who can help me with paying my bills and rent for March, providing some extra spending money for March, helping me get a job starting March 2, 2008 and helping with my legal situations, please e-mail me at


Talk to 55Merryl

My nickname is 55Merryl and I have Cancer, but I am unable to pay my premium for insurance, because the worker who was working on my case said I was ineligible to get medical assistance. He did not go over the entire law for the exemptions to find where I was eligile for medical assistance and he said he was not going to go over the entire law to look for the exemption. He was just too lazy to help.

I  live in Pennsylvania .  It was the same thing for Cash Assistance. As a result I have no income for the month of March.

I  will be able to get Disability, but the first I will receive will not be until April 16, 2008

I need an attorney to help me get cash assistance and medical assistance for the Month of March and I need assistance with paying my March's rent.

Also I need money to pay my Bills for March.

I am also looking for work in the area where I live. I live in the Wilkes Barre/Scranton, PA area. The kind of work I am looking for is Customer Service, Paralegal, Data Entry doing Medical Billing and Medical Insurance Claims. I need a job at the least starting around March 2, 2008 so that I have income coming into my household.

I used to work as an Unemployment Claims Interviewer with PA Department of Labor and Industry. The heman resource director of where I work is going around defaming me and telling everybody he can that I was a trouble maker when in fact I was not. He is even allowing former coworkers of mine to try to harass me and steal from me.  As a matter of fact, 3 of my former coworkers got a hold of my bank card and they charged about 200.00 to my account and I had to get my bank to reverse those charges. This happened in November, 2007 and I have hard evidence to that.

I need an attorney to help sue the director of human resources for defamation and harassment and to help me get reinstated right away back to my former job.

Is there anyone out there who can help me with my situation

I am a single mother of a mildly autistic 4 year old boy. Recently I was diagnosed with a severely developed case of systematic lupus, and during the diagnosis it was discovered that I have tumors in my lungs. I have been unemployed while I attend college and I donate most of my free time to my church or others who need help with household chores, grocery shopping, etc. I have always been a charitable woman, a good Christian, and always tried to do my best for me and my son. However, now I am in great need of a vehicle, a place to live, and and financial help that anyone can offer concerning clothing, groceries, and so on. I applied for disability but the waiting period where I live is between 6 months to a year and I haven't even been approved yet. Doctors are telling me I only have a few more years to "make it count" before I am completely bed ridden and will need 24 hour assistance. I have to go for dialysis and many other treatment programs because of damage done to my organs by Lupus. I currently do not have a car and I am in search of a charity that may be able to help- If any one knows something that might help me and my son in our situation I am DESPARATE at this point. I need these treatments to live and at this time I have no transportation ( there is no bus where I live, we live in the hills ) .

I'm looking for someone to please help me out financially, and PLEASE only those who are serious and no scams.  I know all these internet postings may be hard to reach someone who is serious about lending or giving people money but it's something that's worth trying to me!  I am 26 years old, with two kids (2 years and 5 months), my husband works full-time to try and make ends meet, I was laid off from my full time position a week before Christmas so as you can imagine the bills have begun to stack up. I was laid off right after returning from maternity leave so as you can imagine I was devastated. I begin my new full time job in three weeks, (when they could start me) however in the mean time we need financial assistance in order to make ends meet and pay mortgage, car payment and normal bills and also groceries for our two young sons.   PLEASE PLEASE help us out if you can, I am looking for at least $1500.  Any donations or contributions would be GREATLY appreciated, I do have a Pen Pal account we can use if you would like, if you would like more details on my situation or a breakdown of bills I would be GLAD to show anybody.  Thank you for taking the time to read this listing and God Bless.

Am an orphan ,who never so how my papa looked like.For he was murdered when i was only a bout ayear old,could hardly know him.

He was a little successful businessman in the neighboured and that was the reason for his death,narrates my now old mum.

Tradition has that upon the death of a son in a family,the follower takes over as the the over seer of the property including the wife,for she too was a property of the clan!This one my mum got was a particularly bad! So them fight a couple of times but did not care anyway for i was only a small thing,until this unfortunate afternoon when my uncle put a panga on my throat with the intention of killing me,i can not quite remember what i had done but somewhat did not kill ,i donot know why or who saved me.

That is when my mum ,told me to follow my half brother to school,not knowing the intention ,i followed my brother with the joy of joining school.A couple of weeks later my mum followed at school and told me we were off to see grand papa.I did not know him and was happy to see my mums pap.We trekked a long way i can still vividly remember,then got to a main road where we reached my mamas house.

Since that time to only yesterday i  was raised with my mamas siblings like one of them.I called my grand ma mummy because every else did,we lost her to cancer in 1994,then i was in senior one.She and my mum paid my tuition.My mum did not study past primary school ,she a mere housewife.This then is when her sister,a midwife ,having looked at my first term grades said she would pay fees.she did this successfully through my Ordinary and Advanced level in 1999 and durind our vacation she died.My life has never been any better eversince knowing that my only hope for a future was gone,she left two  daughters also helpless.I have had to stay out of school to fend for them and my mum ,my sister ,a half brother and sister my mum got.

Last year i made a resolution to get back to school at whatever cost,it seemed to work because indeed i joined University.I do alot growing mostly vegetables,and it was all good.Late last yaer while at school ,i read in a news papers that floods had affected our place,did not feel that bad because i had not seen the extent of the damage! On Nineth of December last year we broke for first semester holidays.To raech my Village ,there was no home ,every body was in camp because the mad and wattle structures we called houses were no more!

I donot see my self continue with school because once my only source  was swept a way by floods.

I have to start a gain from zero,this time am not sure whether it works out well.

Am appealing to anywellwiser to help me pay my tuition atleast  i may my degree course in order to better our state .e-mail, bless all you helping hands out there.

Thank you for that response.  Unfortunately, this apt wasn't in my name so I couldn't make arrangements for it or anything.  When the apt mgr contacted the person on the lease she told them she didn't care wasn't paying money..they can do what they need to do, etc... so the apt is considered abandoned and my kids and I are "squatters".  That's why we're being removed.

I want you all to know that it has helped to exchange words here.  It helps me to feel like I'm not entirely alone in this situation and it has provided me with someone to talk to.  For any of you to even take the time out to read my words and comment has meant a lot to me.  Thank you.  I have talked to my kids and they want to move.  Of course, I'm making it sound more like choice that we are moving.  Believe it or not, through everything we've been through, my kids have never been sad, scared, or malnourished and that's all I care about.  When we were living in my car it was a "camping trip".  When all I had to feed them was a few veges, I called it an "experimental Diet" .. I never felt that they needed to be involved in knowing that it was because we were poor.  I may have lost everything I owned but I always hung onto their favorite toys, favorite bowls, cups, everything they made them feel a sense of home..(another thing to be thankful for)  I really don't want them to grow up with the mindset that this is what life is about.  I want them to be carefree to do what they want to do in life that makes them happy not just what makes them money.. 

Everything has a purpose right, and I'm hoping something good is at the end of this dark tunnel I'm about to walk through.  Here I go.  Infinite love and light to you all and again thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Make sure whatever type of notice you have has come from a court house and has a file number on it.   A letter from your landlord or notice only from the landlord is not an eviction. If it is not in the court system yet, you do have some time. Check your local laws and see what you find. Search for Landlord and Tennent information in your area through a search engine.  God Bless and Good Luck.

Tell your girls the truth. Most children have an idea of what is going on anyway, they just play the same game parents play. They let the parents think they don't know. 

I wish you the very best.



These are Your children.  Please provide for all the needs of Your children.  Provide them with housing and finances.  Give this parent guidance and wisdom as to what to do during this time.  Amen.

Thank you for your prayers.  I'm trying to hold on.  I found out today we'll be forcibly removed on Wed.  It's a shock b/c I only missed rent this month.  Not sure what to tell my girls.  I've started to clear out things but I'm really scared.  I'm afraid of what I might do.  Please continue to pray for me.
