Where does an unemployed widow with adult kids,poor credit, low income get some cash assistance to make car repairs and bills?

You can apply for cash assistance and food stamps. Contact local United Way, they may be able to point you in the right direction.

Contact your job and family service center. They may be able to help with some things.

oh yes I know whta u mean. BUT There are programs that will help pay for some things or at least give you a reduced rate on heat/electric ect. which could help free up $ to go towards car repairs. The people who work at those places are not willing to be helpful and if you do not have kids they act as if you are not worth helping. SEEN it before. In the state I live there ARE programs but you have to ask for them. They don't tell you about them.

Also go to one stop or unemployment office. You may find you are eligible for help there too. Call the nearest joint vocational school. IF they teach car repair they may fix your car for little if any money if you let the kids "learn" on your car...

I am sorry , it was wrong of me to jump to conclusions , all I could see is a couple of free loading kids depending on mom to take care of them. I felt sorry for the woman I saw in my head & wanted to knock so cents into her. Maybe y'all will have more luck finding a job tomorrow. Good luck
