I live in Shelby Alabama for college, i have a 1998 Chrysler sebring that needs repaired. The transmission leaks out as quick as you fill it up. The shop told me it will cost 3 thousand to fix. I do not know what else it will need but it ran when i parked it and i believe it will still run. I have been in college for 4 years while carpooling. I had to transfer to a different college. Now i have no transportation because i donot have anyone in that direction. Classes start in a few weeks and i am afraid i am going to have no choice but to drop out. I blew all my savings helping my family but now that i need help they are nowhere to be found. I am on a minimum monthly check due to an accident that fractured my spine. That's why im in college for better options to better my self. I just require a little help and have nowhere to turn and i am out of options.

I live in Altoona Pa. I am a single, disabled mother of two. I am in desperate need of repairing my 2000 Durango. I need the exhaust manifold gasket/bolts, leaf spring snapped, muffler, tail pipe, lower ball joints, oil pressure sensor, sway bar link, bumper, and fog lights. I have some of the parts, but no one to put them on, and I cannot afford a garage for these types of repairs. I am currently being forced (yes I said forced) by a Judge in the Blair County Courthouse to drive my UNSAFE vehicle to the neighboring town for visitation with my ex. The Judge knows my vehicle is unsafe, but said its 'not a good enough reason' to miss visits. I am terrified if I keep driving under these conditions I am going to end up in a wreck seriously injuring/killing myself or my children. If you know of any help at all, in any way, I will be beyond grateful!!

two suggestions. one look and see if there is an automotive school anywhere near you. Most schools will do the work for free, if you pay for the parts - but you can get an estimate of what that will cost before they do anything. 2. I dont know if you get any sort of financial help via food stamps, but there is a program Temporary Assistance Needy Family (TANF) that if there is funding available and you meet other requirements - such as being under a certain income... that they might help pay for repairs, but you need to have a quote for cost of repairs first on that as well..

Hello, My name is Jacqueline and I live in Illinois i'm a single mother of three kids. I have a 97' Dodge Grand Caravan that I need fixed before I loose my job. I can only find work a hour away and i'm running out of time and rides. Please can someone help! I've been so behind in bills because I have gotten my hours cut to receive rides to work. I believe my van needs a trans and I have someone that would be so nice to put it in for free if I got one. My county doesn't offer car repair. Well at least the ones that I have called. I don't know what else to do after fighting to hard to get to this point without support I can't loose everything. I have worked so hard. Please please please can someone point me in the right direction to get car parts for free or at least to where I can afford it. Thank so much and God Bless

Hello Ann.

Tell me about your van. When you turn the key, does absolutely nothing happen? Or does the engine turn over but doesn't fire? Or do you hear a clicking sound, but nothing else?
I'm trying to determine if the problem is your battery, starter, ignition, or something major.

I have a 2001 Ford Windstar LX and it won't start. I need financial help getting it repaired and/or a good samaritan who will repair it @ no charge, and/or a free car for transportation to my doctor's appointments, grocery store, etc. I am a young grandmother who has been diagnosed with poor circulation in my lower extremities. I want to be able to help my grandchildren with transportation to their school activities, etc., too. If you can help, that will be GREAT, or point me in the right direction! :)
Thank you!

Are you out of your mind? Making an open-ended invitation like that when it involves just you - assuming you are an adult - although extremely dangerous, hey, if attracting abusive men is your thing and you're an adult, not much the rest of us can do - BUT to make such a "come and get us" plea with four kids depending on you to exercise good judgment is TERRIFYING!

Why not just post your number and a sign, "PEDOPHILES WELCOME HERE BECAUSE I'M TOO LAZY TO WORK / FIGURE THINGS OUT FOR MYSELF"?!

If you think child sexual abuse only happens to little girls, think again. I have a (now adult) daughter and son who were both assaulted by my second husband, the one I felt so fortunate to be loved by, since I was a "package deal" - a woman with another man's children, precisely the kind of woman who, despite my very good looks, gets passed over because she's "all used up" in male thinking.

You're setting yourself up for a devastating lesson. Please do not take your innocent children along for the horrific ride with you.

Dawn, I am going to give you a tough assignment but you *must* ace it. APPEAR TO YOUR CHILDREN, AND OTHERS, AT ALL TIMES, SELF-ASSURED AND FEARLESS. YOUR ATTITUDE IS, "OH, ANOTHER SILLY PROBLEM? WELL, I GOT *THAT* TAKEN CARE OF!" (EVEN IF YOU WANT TO CRY AND HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO PROCEED, LOL! YOUR BABIES CANNOT SEE THEIR FEARLESS MAMA SCARED!

OK, now I am going to assume you're not stuck in the van, you're on the net, so you're in a safe apartment. Good, got a base of operations! Well, I think the best course of action is to start with your phone book and call Catholic Charities (not, you don't have to be Catholic.). These fine people will deliver food baskets with kid- and even pet-friendly goodies in them right to your door!

They'll even hook you up with vouchers for free tanks of gas, and, in my case, during college, subsidized my daughter's pre-school at a gifted and talented program for artists!

They also connected me with an excellent mechanic who worked at very reasonable rates for me. I hope this is of some help to you:).

Catholic Charities was instrumental in helping me through college after I took my children and left the husband who violently beat me, went to college with an infant daughter and a toddler son, and graduated four years later - working THREE PART-TIME JOBS the entire time to make up for unpaid child support - graduated with every award they had, and got into a top private litigation law school on full scholarship, too!

So remember, you can do anything you set out to achieve! Good luck!

Chris, your SS card can be replaced by any Social Security office in your area. Do this online at a public library or over the phone. Your out-of-state driver's license is not a roadblock to unemployment insurance. Merely note you've changed address by calling the Illinois Dept. Of Revenue and informing them, they will tell you what to do. Often it's as simple as noting the new address on the back of the AZ license and that's good for 30 days until you change to an Illinois license, but it can start your application for benefits as long as you were employed the number of qualifying "quarters" needed to qualify for unemployment benefits. So neither document issue you raised will necessarily bar you from receiving short-term benefits while you're in crisis. Good luck!

Look for immediate assistance through local churches' food assistance programs for new residents, they will bring it right to your door! You can access these wonderful people and services by looking up their phone number in your book. Catholic Charities is particularly good and fast and includes something "treat"-like for the kids and pets, even, in their food baskets! From there, they can hook you up with vouchers for free tanks of gasoline; trusted mechanics who do excellent work at very low cost, and so on. I hope this helps you get established. Once your feet are firmly on the ground - don't forget to go back down there and Pay It Forward for the next needy family. We are here to heal each other, after all. GOOD LUCK!
