I know someone who just moved to town and He and his family short on funds. The guy is willing working and need a place for his wife and children. Also he needs transportation. He will have some money at the end of the week. I don't know where to start in giving advise.

My guess is... Try to get a motel here in town like Lucky Vista or Towne motel for a week or two. Save some money till you can get a down payment on an apartment I guess.

I never moved to a new town and tried to find work and start over again, it must be rough.

Try the Taylor County Ministerial Association. The can be contacted through the Campbellsville
9-1-1 Center. If they can't help they will direct them to a church or churches that might.

Thanks, I was told the unempolyment office will allow you $1,500 for a car or apartment to rent. I think it will take 2-3 weeks. I'm starting to get second thought about this person. I don't know all the details.... It just don't seem the person didn't do much planning before coming to town.

So if you was broke... Would you buy a Car or get an apartment? Unless the guy can get a ride back and forth to work by someone else.... He may need a car first...they could sleep in the car i guess.

I will pass on the information about the Taylor County Ministerial Association.

There is a emergency homeless shelter in Campbellsville. However, they are new and can only house one family at a time. But they may be able to direct the person to help find other housing options. The name of the place is Green River ministries.

Well I'm starting to think this person not doing enough to help himself. I think I'm about done in helping.

You all named places that could help... I'm going to pass the word. I never been homeless, but I would think Churches and etc., all willing to help if a person ask.

Many times people don't get help because they won't ask. Thanks all for all the support.

Wrong information. The unemployment office cannot help you with buying a car or getting an appartment. They can help him find a job though.

I know I am not the only one who has seen the people living in the car at theMiller park.It is a long white car with a red roof.Police ride thorugh there all day and why are these people not at a shelter.I live paycheck to paycheck and dont have room in my house for them but I know someone could help her find a job cook them a nice meal or offer a hot bath to the kids....It is too cold to be in a car 24/7 and that is hoe diseases and staph infection sstart by people being dirt and hungry....

this person chooses to sleep in her car. she has a job and she has money in her pocket. She is very clean, so i am guessing she showers somewhere.
