Who can I contact to receive Emergency Rental Asssitance? My friend is going to receive an eviction notice if she doesn't pay her rent by the 12th. She doesn't have the money and needs help.

Thanks

Tell her to contact the local job and family service department. If she has kids, they have resources to help. They have what is called a PRC department which may be able to help her keep her apartment. If your friend doesn't have kids, the only thing I can think of is contacting the local Salvation Army or seeing if you have 311 in your area (not to be confused with 411, 311 is a free service that will link you to community resources in your area).

Thanks Kandessa,
She's in a bad pridicament because in order to get her children back she has to have an apartment but she can't get assistance from most places unless she has children living with her I gave her the information for the Salvation Army. Hopefully she can get some help from them.

I appreciate your response.

Unfortunately, Slavation Army doesn't have any funds available for assistance at this time

Does anyone know of any other private organizations that may not publicly advertise giving assistance such as this?

I strongly recommend 311. Local churches also can be of assistance. A friend of mine contacted a local church when she was homeless, and they put her up in a hotel, provided her with food and even helped with a security deposit on an apartment. The PRC department at JFS should be able to help (if funds are available) even if your friend doesn't currently have her kids. Just make sure when she fills out the application she puts that the reason is so she can get her kids back.

Thanks again Kandessa,
I just passed this information on to my friend. She's going to have to wait until Monday to call but she will call them.

As a previous poster said contact job and family services for a PRC> You DO have to have minor children and you also have to have the evicition notice to apply. You can recieve up to $1000 towards rent and utilities.
