Hello, my name is Mike and I've been looking around for help with paying my rent. I've been looking for some sort of grant but all I've came across is promo's and adds, nothing real. I decided to post this because I believe there is hope out there for some of us. All I would like to say is that I'm a 32 year old male, I had a heart attack when I was 24..I know thats young but scary for me. I've been reciving disability from my state of $600 a month and $300 of it goes to my children's mother. I live in a appartment with my girlfriend and between her working and going to school and my $300 check we're barly making rent. If this is a real site that helps people I would be very thankful for your givings.
You may e-mail me at its_dj_xtc@yahoo.com and when I get to computer I will get back to you. Thank you for your care.

Hello, My name is Jackie. I am a 52 year old woman with severe disaliblies. I live alone in Florida on $550 S.S. disablity and a $198 monthly pension. I am so scared, I am trying hard to buy food and my medications but most months I have to pick one or the other. Is there anyone out there who could help me, even in the smallest way? Any assistance would be so apprecitated. I am using a friends computer but will check on this web site again soon. I wish I could help the people who are less fortuate then me. At least I have a tiny apartment to live in . God Bless you, Jackie

That is a WEB site to get help on your prescriptions if you are not on Medicaid Part D. If your income is low enough the prescriptions are free, no joke. Food Stamps can be obtained in Texas at Texas Department of Health and Human Services, low cost housing can be obtained from H U D Housing offices thru section 8 program, call HUD for a list of low income housing in your area.For a bag of food in San Antonio call the San Antonio Food Bank, Austin and Dallas also have good food banks.In Texas for state help call 211 on the phone. Such as help for kids or elderly.

Just sitting here looking at all the posts with people saying they only have so much money for the month.......well doesn't it cost money to be online? You have to pay a Server. How were you able to buy a computer, they don't come cheap. I think most of you are scammers!

Every where you go you can find internet access Taz , welfare , library , moms, neighbors , you are a troll , why comment at all. Americas disabled are below poverty level , too bad I guess , a fact all the same. Have mercy if you can't have decency . I doubt a scammer would leave an email addy .. I hope you do infact experience what the other posters are . Shame on you.

Try the Churches and one time assistance from human services . You may qualify. Also try working with the utility company , tell them you are having trouble you may qualify for a lower rate. I don't know if this type help is available in your area . Last theres always selling plasma I think they still buy it but you will need to be healthy. If worse comes to worse you should get some candles , ice chest , water jugs . You may have to live without utilities . You can survive but you won't be comfortable without being prepared . Good luck and God Bless you and the others in need . peace Out

Hello did you ever hear of going to a library & using 1 for free? Just because a person can post online doesnt mean they are scammers & you must have a miserable life if thats all you can do is sit there & accuse they ppl of being scammers

Hello and god Bless you today. I'm not in the business of asking for help. However, I would like just a little help with my Utility and Mortgage Bill. In Florida, the weather is very hot, and I have a four year old child living with me and I canít afford to have my utility turned off. We have until October 5th to pay the utility bill. Please help, I have contact some of the agencies, which didnít provide much help. I need $2,500.00 dollars before Friday, October 12th I need just a little help and would appreciate any amount you can send me. Please send donations to Gloria Johnson at 3271 Glory Road, Quincy, Florida 32352. A donation of $2-$10.00 is greatly appreciated. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated. God Bless.
