life is crazy

jklmop started this conversation
Hoping my brother will find a job soon. not like he hasnt worked since i had him move down here when my room mate moved out, he just had a seasonal job and he is looking for work til his work starts back up. i have gotten way behind on bills, rent all that good stuff in life. seems like i was doing better before he moved down, but i cant blame him. one paycheck just doesnt cut it. i have cut out alot extra that would make life cost more and it seems like i still cant get ahead. i dunno what this is gonna help, just felt like venting some.

Hi, I am sorry to hear about your families' struggles ... maybe something here will be of some help and direction? I don't know what services and charities you and your brother have looked into, but there are a few things, some pretty basic, which may assist cut down on bills. Is he receiving food assistance? If not, I would encourage him to apply .. if he doesn't have any income he should be eligible for the full amount, which is usually $200 per month. Other things like getting a discount with utility bills through the low income option with your utility company may be something to consider .. along with applying for the one time family grant for utility assistance - typically around $150, as well as LIHEAP. If he's already getting food stamps, or will apply, he'll then be eligible for some additional assistance like a free cell phone and a no cost landline phone for your home. These things and other related financial help are automatically suggested once he starts receiving food assistance through the state - i.e., when he gets the paperwork in the mail, they will include a list of things he is eligible for. Here's a link which lists these possibilities and some others ... I hope it may be of some small help. Finding Financial Assistance. Blessings, Cat
