Evicted With Nowhere to Go

You couldnt afford to pay the rent this month, but you were too scared to approach your landlord. Now youve come home to find a bright yellow Eviction notice taped to your front door. A million things zoom through your mind. What are you going to do? You can not afford to build the rent payment on your own.

You cant afford your rent... but you cant afford to ignore the situation either. You should seek assistance immediately after receiving an Eviction notice. Waiting and worrying will only intensify the negative situation. If youre lucky, you have friends, family members, or a local church that might all pitch in and help you out... but sometimes this simply isnt possible.

If, for some reason you cant find help through family or friends, and you are unemployed or didnt build enough funds this month, you will absolutely need to investigate some government assistance programs to find out whether or not you qualify for financial aid.

The Department of Human Services emergency assistance script can be able to provide you with some relief. If your family has not received an emergency assistance check within the past 12 years, and you do not receive workers compensation (ADC or GR), you could be eligible for a special payment equal to one years regular welfare check. This check can take care of the missed rent and utility bill.

Otherwise, you should visit your local welfare department. If you qualify, a representative will become your case worker. This human will work the details out with your landlord--taking some of the pressure off of you. If you wish to stay in the apartment and the landlord wants you there, too, welfare will have him sign an agreement proverb they can send him a check for the rent.

If you want to move, or your landlord wont agree to let you stay, welfare can help by paying for a security deposit, utility deposit and the moving costs for your new apartment.

For more acquired skill on local outreach programs, visit the Emergency Food and Shelter National Board Programs web page.. There you will find a box where you might type in your zip code and find the code nearest to you.
