Loving Liberals/ Compassionate Conservatives

Or anyone who just gives a damn. I am on a board and one or possibly two women
are facing eviction and lack food in the house; one woman was going to bed hungry.

One is from California, one is from Kentucky.

I need sources of help for them; food banks and rent funds, that don't seek to make stay-at-home moms ex-stay-at-homes (though if there are jobs they could do from the house to earn them a few bucks that might be okay.)

I didn't tell them I'm doing this; I'm just asking for help and asking that you send me information on ANY source of help in those two states; places of worship, food banks, food co-ops, individuals etc, that can help these women out.

thank you

The best sources in any state is the church. And probably the best resource to find churches with ministries to help, would be the internet. Otherwise I don't know of any other suggestions for those states. Sorry!

I am at a loss as to a way to help you. I will look around and ask around as well.(I have friends in Cali but not Kentucky) I will however pray for them. It is the least I can do.

Salvation Army, Vincent de Paul, Catholic Worker, and other groups that may depend on exactly where in California or Kentucky. I worked with an organization called Urban Ministry in northern California which was an ecumenical group of several local churches, and another similar group called Ecumenical Hunger Program (these were local, but similar groups may be findable in other places through local churches), and I've dealt with Catholic Worker in both northern and southern California. These should all be findable in the phone book or on the web.

Catholic Charities can be found in most states and communities, and are usually available for immediate as well as long-term help. Usually they can be found in the yellow pages. They help regardless of church affiliation (and I believe are funded more widely than from the Catholic Church.)

You are all very wonderful. I"m passing the information on and I've suggested both families come look here as well, as you are answering faster than I can pass information on to them! Thank you so much for your help and your kindness.

This is what makes the world a great place to be.
