Fidelity started this conversation
Hello - I'm new to this site and of course I found it because I have a situation which feels very dire, no one to talk to and cannot find help. I was hoping to see if people have ever gotten emergency help from this site.

I noticed one member posted that only people in need are visiting this site rather than those able to help. I am not sure how to approach my situation in asking for help since I so rarely ever rely on anyone but myself but this time I have to swallow my pride.

Any reply is kind and welcome.

@fidelity. I appreciate your helping at the local college. Can you look for a shelter nearby at which you can volunteer? (for homeless, or battered women, children, or poor)

About a third of the people who use this program are women.
More than half are working to re-enter the workforce to provide for more than one or more children and a spouse.
I do not get paid.
This is a worker rehabilitation program provided as a community service.

@fidelity yes, I can pay $50 towards a bus pass. What is, "my error in thinking that I could get bus fare, internet and electricity"? I dont understand.
I would prefer if you help at a shelter (for homeless, or battered women, children) rather than the local college. Local college will not count. Are they paying you?

I read it but you're correct - my error in thinking that I could get bus fare, internet and electricity. That said, if I can use this for a bus pass, I'd like to accept the offer. Thank you.

@fidelity please read my earlier posts $50 towards a bill, in exchange for 5 hours of volunteering.

Thanks for the response. Any information is probably the help I need. I definitely would appreciate any resources - especially for Washington state since I no income and all of the cash assistance programs are gone. I can't even make phone calls at this point so it's becoming increasingly impossible to reach out at this moment. I'm not sure what to do.

you are probably not going to receive the kind of help you need. Many of the people helping financially have left the site but there are some here that will give you really great information or emotional support.Hope that helps.
