Are you getting assistance of any kind like food stamps?Catholic charities may be able to offer rental assistance,also call or check out resources for your local county.
Call churches in your area,Goodwill,Red Cross,Salvation Army.check out any and everywhere.if they can't help they will point you in the right direction.
God bless you both!
Maybe teach or tutor french lessons..
I am looking for two friends I haven't seen in years.Randy Brown LPN,lived in New Orleans moved to Tempe,AZ.We worked together at Colonial Oaks nursing home.
and Vickie Pruitt,from Selma,AL.last known to be living in Florida,Susan Lobre misses you both!
Geez,don't I wish I had it to give you,I've never had a house so I am not an expert but your other two replies sound very helpful.
But,I wanted to say,we have all done things we wish we wouldn't have.Put those things in a box and throw it away.Today matters,tomorrow isn't even here yet and yesterday is gone.
Good luck,God bless
Every city in every state will provide transportation to and from doctor's appointments,contact social services in your area and they will tell you the details.are you getting food stamps,aid to dependent children? I'm assuming you have medicaid for yourself and the children,if not please go get it.
There are many churches and organizations that will help you also,contact Salvation Army,Red Cross,Goodwill.Where I live there's a place that does fix and sell used cars at a very reduced price.Even if these orgs.can't help they may be able to steer you in the right direction.You could probably work out a suitable payment plan with a mechanic if you find one that's reasonable.
Put an ad on craigslist that you need your car fixed,explain the circumstances,lot of good people out there in the world.Good Luck and God bless you and your children.
My son is your age and just started school.Are there any grants/loans available to you?2 of my sons' friends got grants for $10,000 a year if they maintain a b average or above.If they get below a b they pay it back as a loan.
We have just applied and hope that we qualify.but,you need to go to the financial aid office of your college/school and find out every grant and loan program available,the counselor should be able to tell you which one is best for your situation.
I wish you the best,please let me know how you make out.We live in New Orleans suburb,so Idk how the loans/grants are in B.C.another thing is you may not want to do but lighten your class load and get a better job,saw where you put cashier by your bio.My son is delivering pizza on weekends and doing real good on tips.that may not appeal to you but we gotta do what we gotta do.
I'd like to say,when I was working as a nurse for 16 years I saw a lot of bogus charges to medicare and medicaid from nursing homes I worked at and hospitals.
One doctor at this nursing home would not examine the patient,just asked the nurses what they needed and charged for visits,many services were charged that patients never received.Music therapy,occupational therapy,etc etc.these were services ordered by the nsg.home/hospital.I reported as many as possible.My own mother suffered with dementia and was bedbound the last 2 yrs.of her life and the facility was charging medicare for all kind of services my mother could not possibly participate in,we reported them.You know,the nsg.homes are the worst at racking up charges,getting kickbacks from hospice companies,rehab.services and the list goes on and on.
hospitals are b.s.cause you get charges like ten dollars for two tylenol,8 bucks for a band aid, and insurance rates go up for all this b.s. however there is a system in place that keeps doctors from ordering unnecessary tests in a hospital.
I was lucky enough that when my spouse died I was given medicare at 53y/o,I do have a son age 20 and we cannot afford insurance for him.if insurance rates are high it's because so many have put bogus charges on them the innocent have to pay,however I do pay for my medicare and am against a government healthcare system.
I can't blame any doctor I go to for abusing the system,I go twice a year cause I had cancer and need to get lab work.and I tell my friends do not let them operate on your back,knee,etc w/o getting a second or third opinion.most physicians are ethical but there's a bad apple in every bunch.you just can't go along with a doctor unless you're in an emergency situation.I mean if you know your diagnosis and trust the treatment,that's different.hope I made a point w/o offending anyone.
I was wondering have you tried to get emergency aid,like rent assistance,food stamps,help with utlity bills,etc.if not,you need to.They give it immediately in emergencies.
also,you can go to the nearest church,and talk to priest,minister,etc.they help with utility bill like electric,most have a food bank or will give vouchers for food,gas if you have a car.
as a last resort,you could make a payday loan online,the interest is high but you need money,some lend up to $1500,all you need is a checking acct and a job.
these are all resources I used in the past after my spouse passed away and it really helped.good luck,GOD BLESS
I don't think I mentioned I am very grateful,as we all should be.I know that however bad it gets,someone,somewhere has it worse.So,I put my faith and trust in God.He has been very good to me.
I try to help others whenever I can,not with finances,of course but by doing.Small acts of kindness go a long way.and I try to keep a positive attitude for others I meet.Negativity breeds negativity,we're alll in this together and we need to help each other.
I was a LPN,nurse,who didn't keep renewing my license every year because my husband was the main breadwinner in our family.
One Thanksgiving morning I woke up to find my husband had passed away,I was screaming and my 13 y/o son woke up,called 911,the operator told my son for me to do CPR.I knew it was useless cause he was blue but I did it for my child.
After 3 years of sitting around in deep depression,I started thinking about going back to nursing.The Louisiana vocational rehab said they would even pay for a refresher program.I was getting ready to start when hurricane Katrina hit,we were displaced for 3 months and when we returned,well every school,business,etc was having a hard time getting back up.Long story short,4 years later and there still isn't a LPN refresher here in greater N.O. area.The only 2 in the state are in Baton Rouge and Hammond and I don't have the transportation.
I love nursing plus my son was so young when I was working as a nurse he doesn't remember and I kinda wanted him to see his mom working in this profession.I've been cleaning houses and it such but I try to take pride in whatever I do.My son is starting school if we are eligible for a loan/grant.We need help but so many do,too.GOD BLESS YOU ALL!
Hi everyone,I live in louisiana and try to survive on social security income of $1100 a month.one check is disability and the other is survivor benefits,my husband passed away suddenly.I was cleaning houses a few days a week until I got sick,my son is 20 y/o now and trys to help,he works delivering pizza and just started community college which he is paying out of pocket until a loan or grant comes thru.I can't pay my water bill,car note and I get tired of it always coming back to money.I am grateful that my health is better today and grateful for my son's health.
I'm not different than anyone else on here,we all have money problems right now.
I cannot afford the rent,or utilities much less food.I read alot of the posts on here and will pray for all of you.
I ask that you will pray for me and hope all our needs are met.
