I know you must read something like this everyday, but I´m a starving artist. My friend and I have a film project we are trying to get produced, and we invested every penny we had in the trailer for the film: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nfum9hXUJ-w and in the promotional materials to get sponsors. We have some promises of funding, but for next february or march. We are broke, we urgently need money for food and rent so we can wait for the money for our film to finally come in next year. Please help us. You will be rewarded by life or god, if you believe on him. Thank you.
Me and my wife recently lost our jobs and got real behind on rent, we are really good law abiding citizens who can really use a helping hand right now, my total rent due is 850 dollars and i have about 200. if anyone can please help us right now i dont want to be living on the street. If anyone can help i promise i will pay you back. If you can send paypal my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you so very much for listening to my story.
I am a single mother that recently lost her job. My boyfriend is an alcoholic. I have been planning to move out but now that I have no job I don't have the money. I need money for an apartment, moving expenses, lights, water, etc. Please help me and my son. I have put in several applications for a job, but haven't heard back from any as of yet. Thanks for listening. Feels good to unload this burden.
My car recently broke down and I had to use my rent money for repairs. I'm $550.00 behind in my rent and I need help before things get out of control. I have tried charities but you have to have an evicition notice. It would be great to get help before I am out on the streets. With the car repairs and the high heating and electrical costs (which I'm behind in) it is hard to dig out of a mess. Any help would be greatly appreaciated.
PS The picture is of a dog that was rescued after collapsing in the middle of the street, I'm her human now.
I have been out of a job since September...been on mamy interviews. I did a few free lance gigs...but that just covered last months rent and food. I have earned a few hundred dollars since November 1st....but I desparately need $850 to pay me rent. I am confident that I will find a job by mid december. I have a roommate....and rent must be paid on time. I am depressed and feel so ashamed that I cannot make my rent. I have no family that can help me....I don't eat much...and sleeping is not an option with so much stress on my mind. If anyone can assist me.....I'd be so honored and thankful. You could write the money order directly to my landlord or roommate. I thought I could earn enough money...my account has a balance of $150.
thanks for reading, happy holidays.
Help with your rent
Need help with your rent or mortgage payments? Fear not: here are a few ways of securing financial help.
Social fund - help with rent in advance
The social fund is a system by which people on low incomes may receive payments and discretionary grants or loans for needs that cannot be met from their regular income. Payments are made by Jobcentre Plus. If you are leaving residential or institutional accommodation, need help to stay in your own home, have had an unsettled way of life, or are facing exceptional pressure, you may be able to get a Community Care Grant. http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/MoneyTaxAndBenefits/BenefitsTaxCreditsAndOtherSupport/Caringforsomeone/DG_10018921
Social fund payments are often very hard to get but it is still important to apply. If you are turned down you have a right to a review where the decision may be overturned. You may receive a budgeting or crisis loan instead of a grant. Remember that if you are offered a loan you will have to repay it from your weekly benefit.
Contact an advice agency for help with claiming a grant or appealing against a decision. For further advice contact your local Citizens Advice or housing advice centre.
Housing benefit is money which enables people on low incomes to pay their rent. You can claim housing benefit if you are 16 or over and whether or not you are working or claiming income support. It is not available to full-time students, unless they have children or a disability.
To get housing benefit you need to fill in an application form which you can get from your local council. The council has a duty to make a payment of housing benefit within 14 days provided they have received all the information and paperwork requested. They will need to see proof of all your income and savings as well as a copy of your tenancy agreement.
Your age, the number of people in your household, the rent you pay and your income, will also affect the amount of housing benefit you will receive. It will not cover charges in your rent for water rates, heating or hot water.
If the rent you pay is high, then the housing benefit section of the council may restrict the amount of money you receive. Always ask the council to assess the maximum rent they will cover for a property (called eligible rent) in advance of signing an agreement. If your housing benefit does not cover your rent, get advice.
