Contact the Salvation Army, St. Vincent De Paul, Volunteers of America, etc. Just make contact and explain your situation until you are pointed in the right direction. Although usually the agencies I named will help with these items. There should also be a Crisis Hotline in your neighborhood that is full of contact numbers. Go to grants.gov and see if their is an agency that will help with your light bills.

Hi everyone - let me share the little bit I understand about getting money for education. Have you tried to apply for a PELL grant? These are loans that you do not have to pay back. I didn't find out about them until last year! They are based on both income and need, with income being the first basis. Not sure what the guidelines are, but it is a federal program. You'll have to fill out a FAFSA form (www.fafsa.ed.gov/), which is also free. You'll need the most current tax return information, and an idea of what college or univ you want to attend. Just fill it out and see what you can possibly qualify for. On the teachers loans - we are just now looking into those as well. Check with your state - they vary by state, and often, what the program is, is a "forgiveness" of loan debt if you agree to teach for a certain number of months or yrs. It is all worth checking on. There is no age limit on the FAFSA. I am 48, and returned to school last semester to try to complete my degree. I never knew I could! Check it out, and I hope it helps someone.

Hello my name is Sheila and I have been out of college for several years. I have a BS in education and have been working almost four years as a case worker for persons w/ disabilities. I remember when I was in school something was mentioned about if I would teach for three years the government would pay for part of my student loan. Is this true and am I still eligable if I am not teaching but working in the humanities feild? What do I have to do to get this assistance? Thanks sheila

With the Bad Credit Market becoming more and more competitive with each passing day, the potential customer should have little problem finding very competitive rates and fees. Its just a matter or knowing your credit score and shopping around.
