HELP!!!!, homeless: Hi guys, My name is Mariah, my fiance Ronnie and I have an 11 month old son and we need

MariahW4 started this conversation
Hi guys,
My name is Mariah, my fiance Ronnie and I have an 11 month old son and we need help. My fiance lost his job in June, and since then things have gotten awful. Our gas has been shut off, and our lights will follow on Nov 4th. We've applied to everywhere in the city for jobs (Chicago) and have checked with all agencies about help. None can do a thing, and we cannot receive welfare anymore. I'm looking for someone or somewhere who can help us. We're doing all we can. I legit eat once a day because anymore than that will leave us bare. Our families are tapped out and come November we also may be homeless. We've done everything we can, and I've even considered selling my hair. I am nearly crying as I write this. I'm not trying to give anyone a SOB story, but figured maybe there's someone or somewhere out there that can help us. We don't know what to do anymore. Even at this moment I'm stealing internet. My heart is breaking and I have no idea where to turn to. Here's a list of just some bills we have, and why it's important they're paid:

Gas(though its shut off now)- Last bill was 400 some.

Light- Its well over 1000 now, but any amount of payment would save it, though we literally have 2 dollars to our name right now.

Rent: is normally 850, but the landlord has been letting us pay 650, in which my fiance's grandma has done. But she can no longer do this, as her savings is drained.

My storage unit- 300 some dollars. Now, this one is important because when I was 9 years old, my father died of cancer, this unit has childhood photos of him in it, It gets auctioned on Nov. 13th if I don't pay it. My heart will be broken.

Food, we barely have food.

We don't have normal items, like soaps or anything either. We're very bad off and have nobody to help us any longer.


I understand many are in our situation too, but I figured posting on here would be a last shot. If you have any tips or can help, please reply or email at gmail: Fuzzycupcakes4

I have proof of all these expenses as well. Basically, I'm hoping to get some kindness when we need it most. Whether you can help or you know a place who can. Anything is appreciated, even some helpful hints. It pains me to have to basically beg strangers for help, but we're all human and need to rely on each other to get by. As I said, I'll answer any questions, and am legit asking for helping in any form. Thank You for reading.

Apply for any free prescription cards you can find online that includes your prescribed drug..Also look into the manufacture of that drug to see if it has a co-pay card that you are eligible for that includes drugs that your doctor administers to you for cancer ect...Also Walgreens has a great perscription plan look into it..
This will help with your medications.

Walmart has 3 types of diabetic insulin which you can puchase if you know what you need without a prescription it's called reliOn brand or slow or fast acting Novolin N and R for 24.99 a bottle. My husband uses it it's not as good as some but if you test your sugar a lot you can use it well without problems,,Just call and ask your local Walmart about what they carry at that price in insulin
