She has called the Catholic charities for help on her rent and things since she missed a week from surgery and days with her son. Well they have no funds right now. The city is swamped with people trying to get help. The other program also they sent her to is out of funds for months. She can get food help as she gets food stamps, there are food banks but even they are getting low the news reports. She is getting help with her electric via on track, it makes the electric company accept lower payments. She can’t get the bigger help where a portion is paid because the heat is gas and inluded in the rent. The electric company claims since her electric is high she must have some sort of electric heat source and she doesn’t. So they do not know why her electric seems high for just lights and cooking but refused to come check and make sure she is not paying for the washer and dryer below her or something else.
Try Catholic Charities. She does not need to be Catholic & they will help with utilities & food and whatever else they can. Just call local Catholic Diocese.

Wished she can find help from some places. She called me tonight crying, her car will not start, On the way home it was raining really hard and she went thruogh water. Suddenly her steering was tight and her lights came on. She picked up the kids and made it home. Now it will not start at all. We have to go down to her tomorrow and have my husband look at her car. I am so hoping it was just from getting wet and maybe she needs a jump for the battery. She has no money for a new battery. She just sold her computer to pay her childrens copay to daycare and have gas for the week. She lost a week of work with having to be out from surgery and then lost 2 days with her son having seizures at the daycare. I just wished we were not between a rock and a hard place right now to help her out. We went through our savings with our car having to be fixed and issues, not to mention helping my kids out and still not getting paid back to get it back in our account. We got hit with unknown things as well that came up. I wished there was organizations for low income people with disabled children. She works a good 20 minutes or more from home and further if she doesn’ take the highway to work. There is no one in her part of town that even works where she works. She can’t car pool anways since she gets called from work for her son. I am really praying my husband can get her car going tomorrow.
