Hi, I was wondering if the members of the queen liliuokalani trust would be able to help a family like mines. I am a full time working mother of two small children. two boys, ages 2 and 6 months. My husband is currently unemployed and the only income we have is from me which is barely enough. Our home is about to be foreclosed and we are trying to look for some place cheap to rent so that my boys will have a roof over their heads. I know that this economic times are getting worse but I've been trying my best to support my children, and my husband is unable to find a steady job, for he does construction for a living. His employment goes from real steady to having nothing at all, and that puts a lot of pressure on me to come up with money to get by to pay the bills, and even if i don't have the money in full to pay everything i try to span it out just to make sure my boys and husband can eat. I'm even trying to look for a part time job just to support them and it's a real burden on my shoulders and it's really stressing me out...I really don't know what to do. No matter how hard i'm trying to make everything right, it's seems like the situation just gets worse. I just had to find a way to come up with money to pay for our electric bill that they disconnected for non payment. It's on now but it just made me so discouraged, that no matter how hard i could work, it's still not enough. I just want to be able to support my family. I am of Hawaiian ancestry, me and my husband, and i just want to be able to make it, just like everyone else. I now that a lot of people are struggling, but maybe, just maybe you'll be able to help us. Thank you for listening....

Hello, I was wondering if the Queen Liliuokalani Trust will be able to help me & my Mom. I am currently working & my Mom is currently unemployed. I recently had a 10% cut in pay and having a difficult time paying for the back rent, plus other bills that comes every month. No matter how much money I make, we just end up paying higher rent, 30% off my pay. I have a 12 year old daughter that I love very much. I'm trying so hard to find ways to make it through each month, but it's hard! I know I'm not the only one having a hard time in this economy of ours. I just need that one chance to get my Mom out of the housing projects and support her & my daughter. If that can happen, then I can get a higher paying job or even a 2nd job and not worry anymore. Now, I know we are not the only Hawaiian family having a hard time and asking for help, but if you can? thank you!

Hi, I have an urgent disconnect on my electric bill. I am currently looking for work, without any opportunities so far. Your agency has helped me once before on an urgent disconnect. I want to know if you have a requirement on how long you can receive help again. This time, if my service is disconnected, I will lose my place for myself and my three children because I have section 8. My inspection is coming up and if my service is cut when my inspection is done, I will lose my section 8 services.
