I'm recently unemployed and planning to start over in Collingswood. If anyone knows of a cheap room for rent (preferably under $500/month with utilities included) or a job (anything!), please let me know. Also if you know of any resources for finding work and affordable housing besides Craigslist. At this point I'll work anywhere, but eventually I'd like to find a job doing something meaningful: non-profit, social work, tutoring, caring for animals, etc.

Thanks!

No leads on a job, but you may want to check out the Marina Park Apartments. I think they are in the low $600's for a studio and are probably the cheapest actual apartment complex in Collingswood.

If that is out of your range, make sure you include Oaklyn (08107) in your apartment searches. Collingswood has gotten rid of a lot of their multi-unit houses over the past 10 years, but there are still a lot available in Oaklyn, which is the next town over and is still a decent area.

I don't know of anything anywhere that would be under $500. But one suggestion, especially as the jobs you want to do are geared towards caring for living creatures/people, is to look into being a companion for the elderly. This is not the same as an aide, so don't think it means you have to do "dirty work" so to speak (but if you wanted to, many agencies would pay for you to get CNA certification). There are agencies all over that will help place you as a companion, which basically means someone is there to make sure Mom remembers to take her medicine or can call for help if she falls, etc. You could also do this for children, as a nanny. There are agencies all over as well who place live-ins (you would live in a fab home, for sure!)
