I Need Assistance In Paying My Rent - Get Help Today!

Don't Get Evicted!

If you are facing some hard times, and saying to yourself, I need assistance in paying my rent, you should know that you have some options available. While in many instances you will have to meet financial guidelines and restrictions, there may still be some help you make too much money to qualify for other help programs. If you aren’t sure if you can make your mortgage or lease payment, you may be saying to yourself, I need assistance in paying my rent. Here’s how and where to go for help.

Help From The Government for Rent

Start out with a visit to your county courthouse. Not all emergency money programs will be available through the county, but they can at least steer you in the right direction when you need assistance in paying your rent. There are many different local and federal government help programs designed to aid in making your bills, including you monthly lease obligations. This is a great first step to take when you know you could use some aid, but aren’t sure where to look. They will also be able to help you determine if you meet financial guidelines for the emergency money programs. When you are stuck and saying to yourself, I need assistance in paying my rent, this is a good first step to take.

Charities and Civic Groups

Civic groups will also offer you some help. If you have fallen on hard times, and you need assistance in paying your rent, you can check with local civic groups and organizations to see if they can help with some aid. You may not have to meet financial restrictions with local groups and organizations.

The Salvation Army, for example, might be able to assist you, especially if you have children. There are charities that can help you pay your rent or mortgage and keep you off the streets..

Churches have been known to offer aid to those that truly require it. If you are stuck and realize, I need assistance in paying my rent, asking the churches in your local area will be a much better option than ending up homeless. It’s a good place to look for a hand when you truly have to have it.

In some cases, if you need assistance in paying your rent, you may want to explore other government programs for help and emergency money. This could mean emergency money for utilities or food, which would free up money to keep current with the landlord.

There are some self help options that you may want to consider before you tell others, I need assistance in paying my rent. For example, have you considered adding a roommate? It may not be a cheerful solution, but one that can reduce your monthly bills considerably. In addition, you may want to consider selling off unwanted items, by online auction or even yard sale. This can help you out financially for a month. For a long term solution, try adding other streams of income. Perhaps making a few bucks online would be for you. When you say to yourself, I need assistance in paying my rent, these are some of the things you may want to consider.

Squatting?

You will probably have a little time before the eviction is finalized, especially if you live in a cold weather state, where landlords cannot evict during the winter months. The plan should not be to squat though, the plan should be to give yourself a month or two to get caught back up.

Hopefully, if you are in a financial pinch and saying to yourself, I need assistance in paying my rent, some of these options will help you out. Good luck.

I am writing this post so that maybe I can shed light on my situation and others who are going through the same thing. My rent of only 550 dolors a month is impossible to pay right now because I lost my job at the bank cleaning offices at night. Another company came in and out bidded us and left us without work. Maybe some one with a big heart will help me in my situation.

I was in a hit and run last month. the police never followed up to try and catch the girl. I was on my motorcyle. She was in her car. i now have the hospital bills. I also had a job, working on my feet 12 hrs a day. She took that from me when I lost the ability to walk. i am a single female, i lost everything in my divorce a number of years back and my ex husband kidnapped my little boy. I have no family. I am in hell right now and want to try to manage maintaining sanity. Its slipping quickly. Please help. 4808236935

Hello! Never knew there were so many folks who went to the Internet with needing help. I too have come upon hard times! I am a 65yr. old woman with disability from multiple back, hip, knee and neck surgeries. I am the sole caregiver to my 88 yr. old mama. I lost my part time job and then of course Obama care hit. To the need I have now. I am alone with no family to assist and I have exhausted my search for resources with gov. assistance and cannot receive these. I need to pay Dec. rent to give me time to get another job or move out to I don't know where. I don't want to put my landlords in the position to evict me mor do I want that on my record. If God has led you here also either for help or to help, then there was a reason I found this sight. If you would like to help and need more info, please call 3075141525. Thank you!
