What can someone do if they are out of money ? husband has a job, we have one car, three kids...
and don't have enough for the bills this month. Where can someone turn when they need help? When they need help asap?
If you have an extra room in your apartment, rent it. Ask family for a loan, it is better than credit cards and look for some extra work and savings, also check here for more tips:

If you're in the US, you can probably go to DFS for assistance (that is, unless you have very good income and had extenuating circumstances trip you up...but with three kids, that would take a LOT of income not to qualify). There are programs for assistance with phone bills, gas bills, food, money assistance to be used for any household essentials, and so on. In some areas, case workers really drag their feet on processing the necessary paperwork, but if you make your situation clear then they can often get it approved very quickly.
I know what you are going through. I have been unemployed for 3 months now and my husband just became unemployed. It is really scary.
I save money by buying groceries at angelfoodministries.com It saves my family of 5 about $300 a month. I wrote a Hub about Angel Food.
And I earn money by writing here at Hubpages.
I know where you are coming from. Both my husband and I are currently unemployed and have two children, also one car. I would say take on odd jobs if your kids are in school. If not, looking for a job where you can work from home is ideal but not the easiest to find. Personally, I started selling Mary Kay last year and it has helped many times. It gives me extra income for groceries and gas money. I don't put near as much energy into it as I could so I'm sure you could make more if one wanted.
Of course the other way is to ask a friend or relative for a loan. Other than a loan, I would say try and find an odd job.
The government doesn't seem to be much help unless you are so poor that you are practically living in your car. You may have better luck though. I really do wish you the best of luck.
Thank you all. You are all very sweet and helpful. Good luck to you all as well!

Four Democrats and Lieberman voted with the Republicans. I have mixed feelings about this, according to the research I've done. It seems that "economy experts" are split on their views. Some argue that...

Where do you draw the line? What does it take for you to leave a job? Is it enough to simply wake up dreading the trip to work everyday? Or is it an emotional breakdown that's needed for you to finally see the light?...
