You should visit the USA.Gov site where you will find mortgage assistance programs, food stamps program, weatherization programs and even help with military financial assistance.
I Need Money Right Now
Compared to a decade ago more vehicles are on the road. A typical family now has 2 vehicles in their household, most of these vehicles are clustered around the city which means that there is a huge demand for parking space. Other factors such as grand theft auto have left motorists demanding better parking facilities for their cars. With demand so high motorists are now willing to pay a premium to park their car in a safe neighborhood.

If you're desperately in need of money and have a parking space available you should entertain the idea of renting the space out. If you live in a safe neighborhood which is very close to the city center you will find that there is incredible demand. If you have a garage you will be able to charge even more.
If you need money right now you should put an advertisement on the internet offering your parking space for a reasonable rate. Depending on where you live you could charge anything between $10 and $50 per day. You can charge a higher premium if you're near the city center living in a safe neighborhood with a secure alarmed garage.
If you're not near the city center you could put an advertisement in the local paper or distribute leaflets in your community advertising your parking space. If households have more than one car there is a possibility that they might want to use other peoples parking space rather than parking off road.
Renting your parking space is a great way to earn additional income. If you parking space this is in demand you could make regular monthly income that could supplement your earnings. The key is marketing your parking space effectively so you can reach as many people as possible.
