DEAR FRIENDS ,
WHEN I JOINED THIS SITE , I TOLD THE ABSOLUTE TRUTH ABOUT MY NEEDS AND MY SITUATION , I HAVE HEARD NOTHING AT ALL ABOUT ANY HELP FROM ANY WHERE .
I HAVE HELPED OTHERS ALL MY LIFE AND NOW THAT I FINALLY FIND MYSELF IN NEED THROUGH NO FAULT OF MY OWN , I SEE KNOW ONE CARES . I GUESS I NEED TO CLEAN MY VEHICLE OUT SO MY PERSONAL BELONGINGS WON;T GO WHEN THEY PICK IT UP .
DOES ANONE KNOW OF ANY ONE WHO ACTUALLY CAN HELP ME. I TRIED TO GET FUEL ASSISTANCE HERE IN NMY NEIGHBORHOOD AND WAS TOLD BY THE SOCIAL SERVICES THAT I GET 15 DOLLARS TOO MUCH A MONTH SOC., SEC.. CAN YOU BELIEVE , AN DI KNOW A YOUNG WOMAN THAT GETS OVER 1800 A MONTH AND THEY PUT IN AN 8,000 DOLLAR HEATING SYSTEM, FOR HER , SHE DOES NOT EVEN TRY TO WORK .
I JUST WISH I COULD MAKE SENCE OF ALL THIS ....
I DON'T WANT TO HEAR I AM NEGATIVE . I AM SICK I NEVER SMOKED A CIGARETTE IN MY LIFE BUT I HAVE A VERY SERIOUS LUNG DISEASE .GOD HELP ME .
Hello...I am interested in joining the Aidpaige AID Program. I am a single mother raising grandchildren. Although I need assistance in finding grants and scholarships for school and for day to day living, I believe I can contribute to the community as well and provide valuable information to help others, in my search to help myself.
Thank you Aidpage Team!
You can call 211 for resources in your area for Christmas and this link of mine has some suggestions.
Try wishuponahero.com and freecycle.org too.
My blog has other information to just click the horse avatar...
Hope that helps and try the BoyandGirls club too.
I know it is very hard for persons with a felony to find work. One thing I wanted to suggest to you was DARS. I beleive it stands for Disability and Rehabilitation Services. They are a federal program..so they have offices all over the country. They help people with legal problems like that, as well as those who have disabilities and things. I am sure they can help, or at least direct you to someone who can. Look them up online, or in your phonebook.
Blessings to you and yours!

I hope that things get better for you soon. Have you tried applying for disability for depression, if nothing else?
What about student loans...I know some of mine paid for my classes and I had some left over (hundreds...maybe enough at the time to pay off a month's rent, or buy groceries...)
If you attend any area churches, they often will help.
Blessings...and do let me know how you are.

I am a 47 year old disabled full time student at UMA in Maine. I have recently gotten a divorce and had my house and daughter given to me in my divorce.I couldnt pay the bills and had to give up the house.My daughter being 18th in a class of 200 was given the choice by me to move back into her home with him.( There is a restraining order against him for me so I cant visit)My son was a UMF student and quit to come back and help me.He lost his job because his car blew a head gasket and he didnt have a ride to work.I have been struggling with only 694.00 a month to pay for a two room apartment.I had to get rid of everything I had to fit into this tiny space.Two days ago my son fell asleep at the wheel in my car and crashed it.He is ok but the car has been towed and I dont know if it will run again.I needed to come up with money to get it out on monday and from what my son said there could be to much damage for it to run.I have classes and have no car.Ten years ago I was on foodstamps and housing and I managed to get off both,building my own house and then paying it totally off...I am trying to pull myself out of another hole and dont see any future without help.There is only the three of us...My daughter that I can see very often, my son, and me fighting a battle to replace all that has been taken away.I am studying computer sciences with a heavey load on graphic arts.My son has signed back up to the university I am going to...Im just afraid that things will spiral because of the situation...Thank you for your time spent reading this.I hope to hear from someone.
