I am a part-time medical student, I am in a nine-month course. I am looking for a way to keep my rent paid up, and to just help me get through school. I don't need much. I would just like to be able to keep rent paid and maybe be able to buy a cheap car. As of right now, I am taking the bus, and it is hard to find a job that will work around my schedual, at the same time, it is hard to have time for both work, study and school when the bus easily eats hours of my day. If anyone knows of a grant, or low-intrest loan, please let me know.

Reply to Nancy13---You are right about programs for the diabled, there are many of them and you came to the right place to find the right programs for your needs. I will list site names of some of our aidpage angels whom have spent weeks and months doing research finding grants and resources for those that come to aidpage for help and advice. If you don't see their names on the main page just type in the name you want in the google window at the top of the page and don't forget to click on aidpage under the window before you click search.Names: WHOKNEW---Friendshelpingfriends---Elaine of TSA---Soulight---Ricardog---and Anonymous40784---Now these are just a few of our very best resource and grant info pages and you will have to do the searching part. Some of these sites have resources listed by state so you have your work cut out for you but I know you will find what you need and when you do it would be very nice if you could thank the person whose site you found the info that helped you. Our aidpage angels work very hard and are not paid but a thankyou is so appreciated. Goodluck and Godspeed. Sincerely sheshe030

I am in my 40s, on SS disability and SSI. I have recently decided to purchase a home in KY. I know there are programs for people like me, but can not find any sources. Any info anyone can help me with  would be greatly appreciated. I know there are government grants and loans out there but after several phone calls and hours on the net still haven't located anything.

I am an Active Duty service member and I will be PCSing soon.  I have jsut bought a house and will be loosing alot of money if I try to sell it now.  When I get to my new duty station I will have to pay rent on top of a mortgage payment.  This coupled with the fact that my wife will be out of work, will leave us in a bind.  Is there a grant or something we can do to insure that we keep our house?

Hey, Lissa - you might look into disability or SSI for you and/or your daughter so you can get some income without worrying about employment.  You can also check out www.panicsupport4u.com, a great online support group for panic attacks - they helped me a lot when I struggled with it a while back.  Since you are a teacher you might be able to get work doing private tutoring, and maybe your students could come to your home.  Just tell your nosy landlord it's a playdate for your daughter, LOL!!  I don't know about grants for housing but you can check with HUD.  I work from home so I can avoid childcare and be with my kids (one has special needs) - click on the link in my profile to see if it's a good fit for you!  Best wishes, Rosie

I am a 40 year old woman living in a house that I can no longer afford because I got laid off from my teaching position. I get $97.00 a week from unemployment. I have severe panic attacks that make if very hard to work out of the home. I adopted a child 11 years ago that woman had left at my daycare and never returned. She is now 12 years old. I am all that this child has in life. She has a slight learning disability that requires me to work alot with her to stay focused. I am in a no win situation. In order for me to work, I need to find childcare for her. That requires money that I don't have. My condition makes it very hard for me to go out in the work force. I would feel better working from home or just being a stay at home mom. This will give me the opportunity to raise my daughter instead of paying someone else to do it. I am looking for a grant to help me pay for the home that I am renting now or a grant that will purchase a home for us so we don't have to worry about rent. We could just invest in a home that belongs to us. My landlord says that I can not run any time of business here. So someone please help me have the chance to buy a home. I am also interested in LEGIT grants. I think that so many people are forced out to work because of the need for money that no one has the chance to spend time with thier kids and guide them in life. Please help!  Lissa6963@aol.com

reply to shags--As I read you post I felt  like I was being transported back in time to when I was 21. My dear young friend you do indeed suffer from extreme depression and anxiety attacks. I worded it a little different than you but it's still the same thing. I'm not a Doctor, I'm a social worker, but I would bet my right pinky that you are also fuffering from agoraphobia--thats a disorder that manifests itself by intense fear of leaving your home or your room, and the fear is so real that you feel like your going to die if you even put a foot out of your comfort zone. Does it seem like there are dark,grey clouds over you all the time, like you have no joy,hope or happiness in your life. Even the mention of meeting  new people can put you into total panic, sometimes it's hard to even swallow or breath. Everything in or on your body hurts so bad that at times it's even hard to move. At times if you do allow yourself to go out or meet new people the fear hits you so bad all you can think about is running away and get back to your comfort zone "home". I've been there my friend and I felt I was the only person in the world that had what I had. Your not alone, just keep that thought in your head, your not alone. I also have some very good news for you shags, it''s all treatable and once you start treatment it onlly takes a few weeks and you will notice those clouds getting lighter in color and you will be able to walk around your block without fear. Do you have a doctor ? Are you low income? Most communitys have a free or sliding scale clinic. If you can I would like you to check and find out if there is a mental health clinic in your city.  You going to have to muster up all the guts you got and get yourself into a mental health clinic. Even if you can't get an appointment right away you need to call a mental health crisis line. Once you have shared your fears with someone that knows what your talking about you will start to have some hope. If you have a computer, get on it and look up mental health clinics and crisis lines. As far as getting a govn't grant, you have to establish a diagnosis either with a Dr. preferably with a mental health clinic. Now--keep your self busy with finding every resource you can and always keep in your heart that what your going through will soon disappear and above all your not alone in this.  good luck and my very best to you   sheshe030
