B. - I'm so sorry this has happened to you - have you gotten responses? What town do you live in now? There is the Salvation Army in Ft Worth, there are shelters for families. I could give you that information if you need it. Do you have any income? Do you have family at all?

try the salvation army.

Check out KLTYs Christmas Wish, it doesn't start until after Thanksgiving, but it might help for the long haul. In the mean time you might check with some of the Big Churches like Richland Hills Church of Christ or First Baptist Euless. Good Luck, you and your family are in my prayers.

Both First United Methodist Church and First Presbyterian Church have rental assistance programs, but they are first come first serve and they run out very quickly. You should call asap. In addition, you can dial 211 for the United Way master list of services in Tarrant county. You will just need to give them your zip code.

I can tell you that it is hardest to get actual financial assistance for anything. The easiest is food and clothes, so I would recommend that you put all your resources toward your rent first and look to outside resources for your other needs.

You already have so many good responses, but I know that withthe economy right now many places that provide aid are pretty full, so I think giving you as many options as possible is best....

You will need to bring all your utilities bills and rent contract and to show the reason that you have had a pay cut are the reason that you are off work , all your kids SS # . Before you go Say a prayer that God will Have Favor on your situration and ENCOURAGE YOURSELF. I'm a single Parent of 2 and I know how it is to hit a slop and have no body to turn too. And the only one that have seen me through is Jesus despite of me not being perfect.He still see's me through.
