Local food banks and free food pantries are a great place to turn to for assistance. The locations will pass out free food, groceries, personal hygiene supplies and other forms of non-financial support. So many people are struggling with feeding their families on a consistent basis, and a pantry is a great place to turn to for assistance. Although some months most people are fine, there can be other periods of time due to an unexpected bill or reduction in income that can make it more challenging. In an emergency, a free food pantry may be able to help.
Find help with rent from government agencies, non-profit organizations and charity programs. Some of the agencies may provide ongoing financial aid. Or learn how to apply for one time rental assistance as well as get referrals for longer term housing support. The exact type of assistance available, whether for a past due or upcoming rent payment or other bill, will depend on the amount of funds available as well as the tenant’s situation. Applicants can either get help with paying rent or they can get support in signing up for public housing or other resources.
