Review for WAL-MART ASSOCIATES IN CRITICAL NEED FUND, Bentonville, AR, USA
I have worked for Walmart in SC for 3 years. I was homeless for 6 months with my husband. Personnel manager told us about the fund. We didn't have the correct paperwork then but when taxes came back we were able to get a place. Shortly after moving in our home we gained full custody of his 4 yr old son and then... both of our jobs cut hours BAD. We have been behind in rent for 2 1/2 months now. Our landlord gave us an eviction notice and we turned it in to my managers for the ACNT app along with our lease agreement and the next 2 eviction notices we received afterwards. I waited for almost 4 weeks before being told that my app was processed and denied because eviction does not fit the criteria for emergency funds? HOW? We are facing being homeless once again with a toddler because we can not get help. Doesnt help that they still refuse to give more hours. Power bill shot up to $630 after our house was broken into on the 2nd day of being moved in...landlord wont fix the windows so our home reaches 91 degrees every single day which is why our power bill jumped sky high. We barely have any food in our fridge. Me and my husband barely eat because we give our food to his son to keep him healthy. We have insurance lapsed and vehicle payment almost $300/mo. Was denied food stamps because apparently we make to much yet cant pay the bills. I have called EVERY single organization in SC for help with bills. No help. Walmart was our last option. I guess you have to worse off than us to actually receive help from anyone. I would say that if you recieved help from the ACNT then youre blessed because not a soul will help us. I've spent 3 years devoted to a job that doesn't care about helping me.
