In Trumbull county, there is the Salvation Army for the entire county and the Church Mouse for Newton Falls, OH. Anywhere in Ohio, I would call your local United Way! Also, contact community referral at 330-393-1565 for a complete list of community resources. (11/18/2005)
Check with your local Salvation Army, local churches, the local fire department, Catholic Social Services, the Jaycees (if your county has a club), the Welfare Department, the homeless shelters (someone told me that they help people with bills and gifts at Christmas time), and check with the children's schools. Call the school and explain your situation. They usually have a program each year where they will buy gifts for so many needy children who attend their school. Hope this information helps. May God Bless you and your family and have a wonderful holiday season! (11/25/2005)
Contact your local United Way for a list of charitable agencies who will help. Call your mortgage holder and sit down and discuss your temporary situation and ask them to redo your mortgage. They don't want your house any more than you want to lose it. They would rather work with you so you can make your payments in a timely way. Good luck. If you are not already on state assistance you need to apply for food stamps, Medicaid, and TANF at your local welfare office. Call your local HUD/Housing Authority and see if they have a program that can help with your mortgage. (12/01/2005)
