Since our mother passed away last Sept. of 2017, my older sister and I have struggled to keep up with household expenses on our limited income. I am behind in my car payments and need my car to get to work. My older sister is recovering from knee surgery and doesn't drive at all. I would appreciate gifts sent to Capital One Auto Finance towards my account. I am three months behind and in danger of losing the car. My payments are $369.55 per month.

I need some help paying for 2 teeth that had to be pulled, due to the pain from the teeth. I have no dental insurance, and this has created a hardship on me, for I live on a limited income. I hardly have any money left to live paying just my regular bills. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. Thank You

This is an honest search for anyone who can help me start my life over. I've had some horrible things done to me that wasn't my fault and ruined my life. My faith is in God and this is the direction I'm being led this morning.

What I need is some help from people who want to help because they can. I've been on the giving side before and have gone out of my way to help those who were less fortunate than myself. Now I find myself in a state of desperation with no other help from federal/state resources, because I don't qualify.

I'm in fear of losing my place of residence and having nowhere to go. It cost me approximately $400 a week to live.  I'm working really hard to start an online writing business over that once thrived, however, starting at the bottom takes some time.

No amount is too big or too small, I'll appreciate any donations that good-hearted people can offer. When I say I lost everything, I lost everything, house, vehicle, my son, and other things too personal to mention. I need some emergency help as soon as possible. 

My mother passed away due to a horrible battle with cancer. She would have wanted her children to have something, however, after all medical bills and treatments, there was just simply not much left. To my surprise, she left $1500 for each of us 3 kids in a savings account. That's what I had to start my life completely over with and I would rather have my mother still here than the money, but to know she still thought of us while she was dying tore my heart out. That money is gone and I need some help from people who can, simply because they want to.

If anybody want to share this link please feel free to do so.

Hello, I am writing this for my sister, Daisy Hammers. She is only 33 years old and in the advanced stages of cervical cancer. She has been fighting her cancer for almost two years and is not doing good at all. She drives to San Francisco every couple of weeks to see specialists, but to no avail. She only weighs 83 pounds and her body is shutting down on her. She has fistulas in her bladder and colon. Which caused her to have two bags coming from her kidneys out her back for collection. She is in tremendous pain and the cancer is spreading and very aggressive.
The area where we live, out in the country, is very dusty and dirty, but she must stay in a sanitary environment to avoid infection. The doctors have given her about 4 months to live. In the time she has remaining she needs to be moved into town where it is cleaner and not as dusty. However, she has very limited finances. The only thing she wants, besides a cure of course, is to find a clean apartment for her and her two children to stay for her remaining days with them. If you could please help her or tell me who can it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Michelle

I have never asked for assistance before, but am very overwhelmed at this time.  I'm a disabled 55 yr old woman with health issues that prevent me from working. I'm not on any government assistance, just a long term disability check from my past employer each month.  It's not enough to pay for rent, utilities, food, medical expenses and insurance.  Each month I'm getting further into debt and can't see any way out. I'm incredibly embarrassed to even write this, but was advised to by a friend who I trust. I'm reaching out as a last resort and praying for a tiny miracle.  Thank you for letting me post this.

Hello all. I’m reaching out to your FINAL NOTICE PRIOR TO DISCONNECTION for our Ameren Missouri Utility Bill, Disconnect date: Feb. 20, 2018. We are foster parents of a 20-month-old boy, who we so proudly get to call our God Son. The only difference than the usual foster parents, is we have to travel weekly from Moberly, MO to Springfield, MO, for parent visits; which is at minimum a 10-hour day of just being on the road. That’s in one day, and we started doing this with our foster son when he was only 5 months old, and traveled 3 times a week in the beginning, we've done this traveling for parent visits since November 2016. We were on budget billing, enrolled into it the day we knew we were going to be traveling a lot, weekly, for our new calling of God to being foster parents. Sometime mid-spring last year, the budget billing got cancelled and then resubmitted, and the payment was triple what we had originally had set up for the budget billing. The only reason we could ever receive from the utility company was that Summer month’s cause consumers to use more electricity, so they had to provide us with an “average” cost in our area and then give us a monthly budget billing rate. We disagreed with their fixed budget billing amount they expected us to pay, because we have a brand-new Energy Star, Energy Efficient AC unit, and we had proof that we used less electricity almost by double in the Summer months. Unfortunately, that didn’t matter to their customer service reps or managers at the time we were negotiating the facts with our usage, and it led us to setting up a payment plan monthly for the balance due (what was left that needed to be paid-in-full of the budget billing months we were opt in), plus whatever our monthly charges were for each month. And somewhere in their system they show we lapsed on our actual "payment plan" they had set up for our "budget billing past balance due", hence I am making one hopeful wish to your organization. Since November, we've had NOTICE to Disconnect letters every-single-month since. At this point, I felt I needed to request help that we desperately need, since my fiancé has worked beyond limits to get these disconnect dates pushed out while we try to get some sort of assistance, so we do not get disconnected. Ms. Dodd finally was able to get our application submitted and processed with Missouri's LOW-INCOME HOME ENERGY ASSISTANCE PROGRAM, on 1/19, and were notified on 1/31 that the benefit amount they could provide was $233.00, followed by "You are expected to continue paying any "AMOUNT DUE" on the bill you receive from your utility company". This benefit amount was just received mid-last week, which was towards the amount due of $2,758.39 or service will be disconnected on Feb. 20th.

My fiancé, Ms. Dodd, has stayed on top of all the communication between the utility company; such as, we've had extension on disconnect dates for our medical needs foster son (which extended us the past 30 days) that was sent from the Doctor's office via fax directly to Ameren Missouri, so it could be approved by a manager at Ameren, as well as reached out to individuals, her boss, and other local nonprofits for assistants. Although, we haven't been successful with any help, expect for the LIHEAP program benefit amount of $233.00. We just received our FINAL NOTICE PRIOR TO DISCONNECT on FEB. 12th, this Monday, that we MUST pay $2,758 by Feb. 20th, giving us only 5 business days basically to get assistance. I stay at-home with our foster son who is a medical needs child, so we only have one income; due to the doctor appts, visits with parent(s), case workers, in-home physical therapy, OT therapy, and speech therapy, AFO brace fitting, doctors appts, and next we have genetic counseling/doctor appts next week for a rare duplication our foster son has been diagnosed with a few weeks ago.

We have never had to ask for help from anyone until November, due to our monthly check for fostering got more than 2 months behind earlier last year, around March 2017, and all late fee's, back pay, upfront cost for fuel for our traveling, daily living, etc.  has caused our emergency fund and savings account to no longer exist, and well we are at a dead-end road as of now. I was searching for organizations that focus on hardworking, low-income, parent(s) to grant us some sort of ‘hope’ and assistants to pay towards our utility bill and I found your non-profit organization which explained was focused “to help the less fortunate among us pay their bills and cover emergency expenses. Free financial aid and cash grants may be provided to families with children, older adults and other vulnerable people who are facing a short term financial hardship.” We would be beyond blessed, thankful, and will eventually be able to pay-it-forward again in the future to individuals that will seek assistance just like we are doing today. I decided to reach out directly, as a hopeful surprise “funding” or payment to our utility bill for my fiancé. However, I understand you all my need to seek more detailed information about the utility account and/or need to be directed to Ms. Dodd for answers, which I will be sure to let her know I did reach out for assistance since we are on a time restrain with such short notice from Ameren Missouri. Again, thank you for the opportunity to make a wish to you lovely individuals, and I look forward to hearing from you all. And if further information is needed, please let me know, and I will direct you all to my lovely Ms. Dodd.  

Our story behind us becoming foster parents is unique, the parents are a couple we actually helped out prior to moving back to our home town in Moberly, we lived next to these individuals who had moved in with the next door neighbors of ours, and we noticed how hardworking the soon-to-be father was and then realized that the roommates only moved the couple in the make him pay double the amount of rent to catch up their past due rent, when we noticed we informed the couple (solely because he was working 2 -3 jobs, I was giving him rides to his jobs, and the mother was pregnant). Then, of course, these neighbors/roommates get an eviction notice on their front door in/around late March-Mid April 2016. At this point, I felt the only option I had was to do some budgeting, and then my fiancé and I sat down discuss our finances and agreed on doing whatever we could to get them a place to stay while we figured out a place for them to call home. Not to mention, we had already confirmed we were moving back to our hometown Moberly in August of 2016, but we knew they needed some sort of help because this precious baby boy was due in June 2016. I was able to budget our finances, and I secretly put them hotels (nice ones of course), all while I convinced our landlord to allow me, all by myself, to FLIP the other house next door to us (the day the individuals moved out of it). See, we were the middle house and our landlord owned all 3 homes. We were even able to use his workshop shed for storage of their belongings so no one else living in the home they were used in knew where they were going or what their plan was, we didn't want these folks to do something terrible to our belongings, cars, home, etc. since they were not trustworthy individuals and had no care in the world of others. It took a lot of “all-nighters” to flip this home, and then we made sure to set the home up, I gave them my couch, kitchen table and chairs, futon, high-end sheets, bedding, bath towels, computer desks, and wanted them to know we noticed the hard work the father had been doing, and that we wanted them to have a home since they were expecting a baby boy in June. After about 1.5 months of living in the hotels, the house was completed, but the landlord didn't trust the couple, so I put myself on the front for them and paid in 3 months’ rent in advance, wrote the year rental agreement with the landlord, and informed them they finally had a home. We literally were all they had and still all they have, the father has no support system, or any family, and the mother doesn't have family either, so we literally bought them the nicest things they never had in their live prior to this big "move-in" date reveal we had planned out for them. They thought they had to move all their stuff into the home, and were surprised to know we even went the extra length to set up their home, put all their belongings away, organized, cleaned, etc. Then we moved in August 2016, and in late October 2016 we received a call from the father asking/begging if we were approved if we would please take his son into our care because he was taken out of the home and he didn't want him in the foster home with strangers, we are the God-Parents of this precious baby boy, so of course without any hesitation we said Yes, absolutely. It just so happened, my fiancé and I had just discussed finances a couple days before the phone call, and we had enough in our savings to survive for a year while she was back in college to get her RN. She had just resigned from her $21/hour position, a couple days prior to this call as well, at a hospital in Columbia, MO. She's a licensed nurse (LPN) in the state of Missouri, and the main reason we relocated was to be closer to our families, and for her to get back into school. Fast forward, almost 16 months later, and now we are in the lowest, and darkest/dead end road we never thought we would hit.  My fiancé had to take this semester off from school, the full-time student, part-time job at a local business here, and all the unexpected medical/doctor’s appointments has forced her to take this time off from college and obviously finances aren’t stable for us to afford out-of-pocket cost for the classes and books. 

Its beyond our control at this point on what we can do and we would be beyond blessed for any guidance or helpful directions to assistants on this utility bill.

Hello readers.My husband and I can really use some help with food and necessities.We are lost as to what to do at this point and I have spent a lot of time crying.I hate asking for help as this was my last resort.We have been through so much in the last couple years
June 3rd 2015 my father died from a brain aneurysm,August 1st 2016 my husband's mother died from lung cancer,and 2 weeks before hurricane Irma 2017...we had to have our jack russell put to sleep because she had cancer.My father and my husband's mother used to help us when we needed it but we don't have them now and it hurts.Afterng the rent and bills we had absolutely no money left to buy food and things we need like personal hygiene,dish soap,household,and things for our puppy and older dog.We ran out of dish soap so we have been using the last few paper plates we had in the cabinet.We live on one income of his SSI and it is very hard. I have tried looking for work with no luck and I am going to have to file for disability as well because I have bad lower back arthritis and can't stand or walk for long periods.Ive been trying to become my husbands paid caregiver but its a waiting list that has gotten nowhere yet.We don't have transportation at the time because the engine quit among other issues it had and have been having to ask for rides with nobody being able to help most times unless we save money from his SSI to get a taxi once month.If you can help us it will relieve a weight off our shoulders and dry the tears we've been crying.

To whom it may concern,
I am a 41 yr old mother of a 3yr old and a 17 yr old, that i pay $600/mo in child support for in NM. I live with my mother who is semi-retired and is 67. My brother, 38, a former marine on disabilty, due to szchophrenia, also lives with us. My wonderful mother, a teacher and geneologist, is supporting us all. We have no transportation and live in my grandmother's home that my mom had to take over, including bills and mortgage,when she became ill and eventually passed away 2 years ago. My mother also took care of my grandmother for years. She has supported us since my father left when i was 12. Without the help of child support. My mother and i are both college graduates. Our electricity is going to be shut off by 5pm tomorrow. I lost my job due to transportation issues. Our house is falling down. Holes in kitchen and bathroom, we have no oven and 1 working stove eye. Half the outlets work and there are squirrels in our walls destroying everything. And mold in the basement. I could keep going on, i really dont know where to start or end? Please help my mother! She also has scoliosis and should be in a wheelchair already. I dont think she has bought anything for herself in 30 years. And she researches genealogy for eztra income and teaches 2 classes at our local community college. I am starting a new job this week. Please help us....

Hello. I am a single, unemployed mother to 3 wonderful kids, Olivia, 17, Bentley, 13, & David, 11, who's struggling to stay afloat. I desperately need help and pray that you find it in your heart to deem me worthy of such a generous gift. My kids & I moved to AR from IA in 2010 after escaping a very abusive home & husband of 17 years. I began working as a server in a local pizza joint in 2010, making $2.63/hr + tips. In 2016 i was forced to quit after I discovered some serious FLSA violations which has resulted in pending litigation against my former employer. Since that time i have been unsuccessful in job search, & am unable to collect child support from someone who refuses to hold a job for fear of having to pay child support. My daughter, who is just 17, gained part time employment that pays minimum wage & i couldn't be more proud of her, but only being scheduled 6 -10 hours a week barely pays for our house hold supplies. I couldn't afford much for their Christmas gifts, & though they say they understand, I know I let them down. I do have high hopes for 2018 & am striving to better our financial situation & bring back they joy to our little family. Your gift would enable me to have my car looked at by a mechanic & possibly fixed, which is vital to my job search & road to financial staility. Thank you so much for allowing me to share my story, & for having such kind soul. God Bless you.

We just recently lost our truck in a wreck, our insurance is not helping us out with a new vehicle or our personal injuries because it happened out of our state. We have a 300 dollar light bill due this Friday and we are a month behind on rent which is 800 dollars, our water bill is due also, we have 4 children, no source of income at the moment, and I am terribly freaking out, I have reached out to many profit organizations, and they have tried to help with our electricity but since our light company won't work out a layer extension date, they cannot help, I don't know what else to do, I have been praying every night for a miracle to happen, and I just hope this is our miracle, I don't know what else to do, I have applied for jobs but no one around us, family or friends are willing to help get me back and forth to work, I can't use uber given the fact we have no money to pay them, I would greatly appreciate if y'all could just help us out with our electric, our landlord is willing to help out a little about rent, he said things happen and he isn't gonna kick us out but just for us to keep track of how much we owe him and how far we get behind, he is not gonna charge any late fees, I am stressing out about our lights though, coz our lights basically run our house. Washer, dryer, stove, please please please help us out, y'all are my last resort

First I want to say thanks regardless of if you can help or not. I think what you do is amazing. The assistance i need is with my electric bill. I have to pay $512 before 2/6 or my power is disconnected. I can pay only $250 due to only getting $750 a month. If my power gets disconnected then by rules, I am automatically evicted from my apartment. As with others on here, all charity outreach programs are out of funds.

I wanna say that i think this is absolutely amazing what you all are doing. When someone gets down so low on their luck and don't see a way out, you are there with a helping hand. Even the smallest amount means the biggest to some of us. I have put in a wish a few days ago, i pray it will get answered. Thank you and god bless you all!!

I have been trying to post a wish, but it just isn't letting me click send or when I click it nothing happens, so I am posting it here....

My wish, my dream, my hopes and prayers is to be able to stay in a home for more than just a month, 2 months, 3 months....I wish to be able to LIVE life.  I wish to be able to work as I do and survive and be able to be entertained with the money I make.  I wish to be able to eat and make meals for my family, to not hear my kids constantly saying "I'm hungry".  I wish that people would be more like you and help each other and rekognize that not everyone struggling is lazy and looking for handouts.  I wish that people could see how wasteful they are being with abandoned houses they refuse to sell/donate/renovate, etc.  I wish they could see/feel the needs and have the heart to want to make a difference in those truly homeless and trying hard to make it.  My name is Trinity, and my family and I just came from being homeless living in tents, and without the rest of the rent money and the ability to pay the power deposit to secure the power in our name soon we will be back there again.  Through hard work we barely make ends meet, but they won't accept the way we can do it.  They want it all at once, like we can magically make all 4 paychecks appear on one day to hand over the money.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thank you.
