Foundations That Help Needy Families With Money 2013 & 2014 (With Contact Details)

If you're on a low income and have to support a large family there is a lot of help available if you look in the right places. One of the first places that you should visit is USA.Gov to see if you're entitled to any benefits or financial assistance packages. If you need cash now or are looking for online financial assistance you could try charitable foundations which have money to give away.

If you're looking to improve your career prospects then there are thousands of foundations which are offering scholarships, fellowships and internships to people who have little or no income. These foundations are funded by wealthy billionaires and rich millionaires who want to do their share of philanthropy. If you know where to look you could apply for these programs so that you can eventually lead a happier prosperous life.

Unfortunately there's no guarantee that you'll get any money and there might be several hoops that you have to jump through, sometimes if you're absolutely desperate and need cash now there might be immediate online financial assistance available.

  8. Im mother of 2 boy my16yr has a heart condition and my 4yr doesn't speak and is in the spectrum of autism. In 2008 we had to move a room in to parents home because our apartment flooded and we lost everything. That summer my husband was laid off a month later our car was hit by lighten so the little we saved while he was working so we can move out of the room we to buy a used car . My husband umemployment got cut off and found job delivering for nine dollars a hour. Then our 2003 enige blows. Now he will loss the only source of income we have. If any one can send us $13,000 to move and fix the car so we can get back on our feet it will save our lives. The past few years have been hell, I pray anyone really would care at all. Thanks

  9. I would like to be upfront and tell you that I provide ALL PROOF of my hardships!!

    Last year we were well on our way to getting on our feet! My husband was our only income. I actually got hired at a job that offered great hours that worked around my children's school schedules. This would have been enough to get us by and maybe even provide a little 'extra'. I was not able to start this job because of extreme behavior from my daughter when she found out about the job I was to start.
    I have no idea where to start. My daughter came to live with me 2 years ago. My ex only told me, "she wanted to live on a different planet, so your house is the best I could offer." He told me nothing else until she was on her way. My daughter has extreme emotional and mental issues that the doctors are placing blame rather than offering the help needed. I can prove this as well.
    Since she arrived after about 2 weeks, she started to 'act out'. I contacted a local mental health provider and got her involved in that system here. They tried medication, individual counseling, group therapy, intense home therapy, and a partial hospital program. NOTHING WORKED.
    The diagnosis my daughter was given before she got here was ADD, ADHD, ODD, RAD, Bipolar, and General Mood Disorder. Here she was given ADHD, ODD (that they didn't bother to tell me), General Mood Disorder, Depression, and Anxiety. No Medications or any type of therapies have helped her thus far.
    Long story shot, the State now has custody of her and she is living in a therapeutic residential care facility.

    Before the State retained custody of her she lived in my house torchering her little brother and doing everything she could to make things unlivable in our house. Her mental, emotional, and psychological warfare was completely unbelievable. All this had a very negative effect on my son, my husband, and killed our financial situation.

    We have no earthly idea what happened this past xmas break. All we know is that my son's school started calling us in regards to his behavior. He was not paying attention, getting up, etc.. ( FYI If you are thinking ADHD you are wrong. ADHD simply does not just appear like this.) We started to really listen to what was being said to him by his sister. She was saying things to him that amazed us. She told him that mommy and daddy will hurt him, that she was happy that papa is dead, and other horrible things!

    Bottom line with my son is we have to home school him this coming school year. We signed up for Connections Academy and have received all the material needed to do so. We are doing this to get him back on track with everything.

    Due to all these extreme behaviors our financial situation has become somewhere between poverty and the working poor. We DON"T qualify for government aid in any way because we literally make $70 a month too much. That means no food stamps, no medical care, no housing, no childcare, just nothing. We have had to choose between food or bills and sometimes rent. Our situation is less than paycheck to paycheck.

    Keep in mind, I can provide documentation to prove everything!

    We fell behind 3 months on everything. Here is a list of where we actually need:

    $1265 for rent. Our landlords are working with us but getting sick of it.
    $411 for Electric
    $187 for Gas/Heat winter is coming!
    $443 for Internet/Cable to keep it on so we can do the homeschooling ((once paid all will revert to basic!)) Note I might be off a little on this one.

    For a total of $2306

    I have set up a paypal account IF anyone is interested in helping us. If you need to contact me for more details or have me provide proof of my hardships please email putting Hardship in the subject.

I have been denied service connection many times while I was still able to work but none the less with disabilities.The DVA claims they don't exist.. Despite having to prove over and over aging they do exist, they deny . I recently applied again with more proof and having spine surgeryDec,5 th related to my injuries left me unable to work for more than 12 weeks . My sister who takes care of me full time cant work either because she is taking care of my many aliments in her home. She is facing loose of her home in the mist of all this. veterans don't ask for much just help with basic bills, the home while we are still here runs completely on electricity ,if cut off I cant use my hospital bed nor the seep apnea machine I use. There is literally no help on the local level. I have called many local and national organizations who though they get donation to help veterans only offer referrals to other organizations who can't help.

I m diabetic and am running out of food , car insurance is past due we need the car to get me to the hospital appointments any help is help appreciated thank you in advance. cell phone is due and without that I can't make calls for help . I have been at this for a month now with no results.

  14. Hi Im Charles from houston Tx. I am a single parent of a beautiful 12yr old girl. I worked offshore in the oil field for the last 6 years and made good money. Four years ago i got a phone call from a judge telling me to come downtown a.s.a.p..I knew it was not good because a judge dont make phone calls. When i got there the judge told me some horrible things were going on in the house my child lived in and order her to be took from the mother and given to me and at that time me and my daughter knew little about one another.1year later i was granted full custody of my daughter and on that day she said dad i have a dream for us to live in a nice house instead of our tiny apartment. 4months ago i made a choice to leave offshore work and get a job on land because she needed more of my time because i worked 4weeks offshore and 1or2 weeks off on land and also mother had her while i was at sea so mom needed a break. So i left work cashed out my 401k ,got an apartment because the home buying was a nightmare with my bad credit. I paid up 3months rent up front and 3months up of car note, enrolled in school to become a nuclear medical technologist and looked for work after school. Four months passed so quick and i still had no job. Bills were coming up so for weeks i begged to my family & every church for help but with no job they all said they cant help & some were in the same boat as me. With tears in my eyes i told my daughter we had to move out because dad was broke, and with tears forming in hers as well right then and there i was heart broken for us. The next morning were both getting ready for school and as were leaveing out the door the apartment mangt says she has to put a lock on the door. While shes saying that im looking at the parking lot for my car but it was gone!!. I called to report it stolen only to find out that a mechanic that i owed 150$ too for fixing my car had made a deal with a 3rd party for the parts that i thought he already paid for. He put my car up for collateral for parts from a third party i never !! ever!! agreed to. The police wont help me, they say its a civil matter and a lawyer cost money i dont have. My car has been in storage almost 6weeks now & is 4,500$ as of today to get out. Mechanic i owe 150$ says he wants 400$ for late fees, 3rd party wants 700$ for parts late fees, storage place wants 1,500$ for tow and paper work fees, 400 for making a new key plus tax, $1,200 for 6 weeks of storage fees & 35$ a day untill i get it out, I think i only have about 2weeks left befor they sale it, plus im behind on car notes. This feels like a bad dream, me and my daughter moved in with my sister and her kids. I feel like i have failed on showing my daughter, all she ever wanted was for us to live in a house and be a family. I always told my daughter never to begg from anyone!!!! but i have no choice today but to begg. Im embarrassed as a man & father to be doing this. I think of al the things i did good in life like feeding the homeless because i wanted to, not because people were looking. Good things like not killing the man who hurt my daughter, good things like finding a wallet and re turning it to the owner. Why me?? i done good things.Sometimes i feel like i can't go another day. But i remember to Never!! doubt in the dark what GOD told me in the light. someone help us! if not with money then help with a prayer. I just wanna get 4,500 to get my car back and 1.500 for late car notes.. I just want to finish school and find a job ,All i want is our dream again, Contact and please no scams,all im getting from people on this site is scams who want all my info like my ss# please no scams it hurt to get emails from some of you who scam, one so called pastor sent me a fraud check :( how could you play with my freedom after I already told you Im a single parent.
