Need short-term help paying for rent, utilities, & car insurance

Nbtrwx6 started this conversation

I have never had to ask anyone for help and I can honestly state that this past year has been a rough one for me.  I going through a rough divorce and recently became unemployed.  I am a hard working individual and feel that within 3 months I will be back on my feet; however, at this point I just need funds to pay my rent, utilities, and car insurance.  I am looking for employment and believe that I will not have a problem in finding a job.  The reason why I am unemployed is simply that my recent employer encountered financial problems and has been unable to pay me my last month's wages.  I am working to recover those wages; however, the bills are due.  I need about $1,500 to pay $1,069 in rent and late fees that were due on January 1, $61 to pay the electric bill that is due on January 11, $186 to pay for car insurance, and some money for food and gas.  As I stated previously, I will get back on my feet, one day I will again be successful, and I will find ways to help other people who find themselves in the situation that I am in.  Please do not hesitate to contact me or ask me any questions.  I am also a veteren who proudly served my country as a Marine during the 1991 Gulf War.  Please help or provide assistance any way you can.  Thank you.

Not sure about Illinois, I'm in Ohio, but it wouldn't hurt to check with your welfare department. There are many programs that are not well known. Also, 211 is a great resource.

Hi all we can do is going u information where u mite get help. U didn't say what u need help with but if u need help with rent lights gas food clothes here u som information. For food call Catholic church s and see which one give out food most of them have a free clothes closet where u and your family can get free clothes u can also call food pantry s for food. For the rent lights gas water type need help with bills city state if u don't see it under city state put county state u will see a list of places that can help if they got the funds, they also help with first month rent and deposits. If u got kids five and under sign them up for wic u can get baby formula and other stuff for the baby the other ones egg milk and other stuff most the time they got baby dippers and baby wipes and more. Hope this can help u. Also pray to God he can help u more than anybody. If u need more information let me know i come on at night.

What about illinois

Check your county Job & Family Services Department (Welfare). In Ohio there is a program called PRC, they help with car insurance and vehicle repair, along with utilities, security deposit and rent.

In my area there are 6 organizations who will help with utilities, rent and food once a year. They will NOT help with car ins. or mortgage. Sooooo I get them to pay the ones they will and use what I do have to pay the ones they won't. I am a divorced disabled woman on food stamps. I had to file ch 13 bankruptcy to keep from being foreclosed and homeless. The rest just has to fall away. Car ins. to be canceled 12/19( 161.14) and water on the12/28(45.12) My thoughts and prayers to those in this website. Merry Christmas.

I have provided the website link below for the energy assistance program in your state.  I have sought help from the one in my state and they paid my utility bill for one month.,4593,7-215--105988--,00.html


For help with your eviction, I would recommend talking to an attorney.  I have provided a website link below for free attorneys.  Once you are there, click on your state to find a list of attorneys available in Michigan.  I have provided one below that I found located in your county.
