The first place you should go to is your savings account or current account, you do not want to borrow the money and pay interest on it, if you've got the money in savings it makes sense use the money that you have.
If you don't have any money then there are a number of lenders that you can go to. First try to apply for a personal loan on normal terms where the APR is realistic, if you've got bad credit then you should try to apply for payday loans, car title loans, if you're really desperate then you can take a cash advance from your credit card however they rate of interest will be very high. With payday loans you will be paying anything between 1000% to 4000% APR on short term, with a auto car title loan you'll risk losing your car if you cant keep up the payment.
You should also consider selling items, if you can sell your clutter to raise money it will help towards your $1000 target. If you've got valuables like gold and silver then you can sell these items at local pawn brokers. If you've got electronics then you can use retail outlets such as Cash Converters to liquidate the item. Selling designer items on eBay and Craigslist can help you raise money quickly.
You could also offer your service, you could try knocking door to door and offer to do any odd jobs around a person's house, make sure you're in your neighborhood or community so you can share your story, most of the time when explain that you're from the same neighborhood community members are much more accommodating.
I've bookmarked an inspirational thread below where someone was desperate for $1000 and needed the money in a week, the members of the forum helped the person and she was able to find some money really quickly. If you need help with financial problems, debt consolidation, financial help for pensioners or military financial assistance you should check for financial help from the Government.
