By Edited Nov 13, 2013 0 0

For those people who fall into the category of needing low income assistance, the act of being able to put food on the table can be impossible. Experts tell us that the economy is slowly starting to recover. For the people that do not have the money to pay this month's bills, it is very hard to believe this statement. An unemployment rate of over 9% is making the number of people who are looking for low income assistance grow to staggering heights.
The good news is that there is low income assistance available out there in many forms. Most people who find themselves needing help tend to think only about unemployment and welfare as the aid that they can receive. This is not the case. There are many helpful people and organizations out there that want to help you. The thing is that these people will not come to you. To get many of the low income assistance out there, you need to apply for it. Here is a starting place for you to go for low income assistance. There are many more programs out there then are listed here. This is just the tip of the ice berg.
Food Pantry
A food pantry is a setup that allows you to get food for your household usually about once a week. The food is usually donated to the center by local businesses or super markets. Most food pantries will just allow you to stop by to take part in this low income assistance. Many are run by local churches. You may also find a few that have been set up by local community groups. You can check your local newspaper to find the ones in your area.
There are usually state run programs for low income assistance when it comes to childcare. The unfortunate thing about these programs is that there is usually a waiting list to get aid. Putting children into childcare can often times cost more then your mortgage payment. There is another way to get low income assistance for this expense. Take a look at the programs that your local churches offer. Many times these programs are much less expensive. They are also willing to work with you on payments. Another place to go for help is a stay at home mom. Many stay at home moms try to make money every month by watching children during the day.
Did you not finish high school? Perhaps you wish to go back to school for skills to help you to get a better paying job. There is low income assistance to help you to do both things. Many of the trade schools that are out there, that can help you get your GED or skills for a new job, qualify for financial aid. These are the same programs that many high school seniors apply to in order to attend college. There are grants that you may qualify for. This type of aid does not have to be paid back. There are also low interest federal loans that you can get no matter what your credit score looks like. You can go back to school and create the life that you have always dreamed of. The help is out there if you know where to look for it.
