My fiance traveled to Nigeria on a job and while there got robbed of all his identification and money. He can find no one to help get him back to the U.S. and I don't have the money. He can't get a new passport, so he can't prove his citizenship or status. What can he do to get home? He has been over there since last July 2011. Please help!

My name is Matt and I am a 50 year old man with relapsing MS. I have once again lost a job due to problems with this disease. I have recovered thank God but now I am faced with the realization that my job prospects are limited due to not having transportation of my own. I have tried everything I can think of to get back to work but now I have run out of funds and things are looking very bleak. I fear the worst which is homelessness. If anyone can help me in anyway I would be most grateful.

I'm an Australian girl who moved to the UK with my (now ex) partner when I was 22. We split up and I was left to fend for myself in the UK without any means to get back to Australia... I've had a job since I first arrived in the UK, and maintained being employed here for almost 3 years now continuously. 

I now find myself both alone (my partner has removed me from the house and is seeing someone else), unemployed, unable to claim benefits / social security because I am Australian. I have the equivalent of £10 / $20 left to my name, and no one will employ me (although I have experience, references and qualifications) because I only have 4 months left on my visa - they do not see it as viable to employ me for such a short period of time.

I found out last week that I am pregnant to a guy I have been seeing. He cannot support me, he is only 19, does not have a job, and lives in an area of the UK with high unemployment, and doesn't have the money to move somewhere else in the UK where he might be more likely to get a job as he only gets £90 a fortnight from benefits.

Basically, I just want to get home. Ideally, I would like the father of the baby to come too although he would need a visa. I need £650 for a flight to get me alone home. He would need £660 for the visa and again £650 for his flight.

I also have all my possessions here and no money to pack them / move them to Australia however I am keen to sell as much as I can. I've been trying to sell anything of any worth (cosmetics, perfume, jewellry - I don't have much valuable things) on Ebay and stuff but it's not having great results.

My parents don't have the money to help us, nor do his, and at the end of the day I just want to go home so I can have the baby. I want him to come desperately however we've already agreed that maybe he can come later and just I go home for now, but either way I need to get some way to get home before May else I will be deported and will be over 5 months pregnant by May.

TRAVELERS AID

7/22/07 Another GREAT link from ELAINE!!!



TRAVELERS AID


From their site:

"In the 21st Century, more people are traveling than ever before. Many are tethered to their support systems via credit cards, debit cards, cell phones or calling cards. An interruption to their travels is an inconvenience, but with money to spend and a reassuring call back home they can make the best of it. Such is not the case with people who live on the financial edge or when crime robs them of their identity and their resources. Traveling can be stressful under the best of circumstances, but an interrupted trip or an emergency is a crisis for the people involved, and Travelers Aid is there to help. Travelers Aid is most visible in transportation centers-the nation's busiest airports, as well as bus and train stations-where each year four million people seek information or assistance. Every situation is unique: A diabetic person has an unanticipated delay in his journey and realizes he needs medicine; a pre-paid phone card from Travelers Aid enables a teenager to contact her parents; a woman who can't speak English turns to Travelers Aid for help in contacting her family. Travelers Aid volunteers-more than 2400-provide reassurance as well as the information necessary for travelers to make informed decisions. Travelers Aid assists elderly and disabled persons, and anyone who needs extra attention to make their connections.

Professional Skills and Urban Connections

When persons become stranded, professional counselors step in to offer assistance. They engage the client and his or her family in the process of developing a plan that brings an end to the crisis and ensures a safe return "home." Travelers Aid has earned its motto of a "helping hand along the way." Travelers Aid began in the nation's largest cities and at its busiest crossroads. Primarily an urban phenomenon, Travelers Aid today serves metropolitan areas with a total population of 110 million. Travelers Aid is part of the fabric of social service agencies that respond to the needy. Homeless, and others, who feel disconnected in their own community, reach out to Travelers Aid. Whether through a local network referral process, or with specific programs geared to provide shelter and food, or training and support, Travelers Aid helps clients make the transition from crisis to independence. Examples include helping victims of domestic violence escape the trauma and get to a safe environment, aiding newly employed workers with local transit tickets, providing transitional housing, and serving as an advocate to ensure the needy get the services they require.

A Continuing Benefit

Travelers Aid has a rich history spanning three centuries, and diverse programming designed to meet the needs of stranded and disconnected people in each of its member communities. Although modes of transportation have changed over the years, the needs of travelers and disconnected persons have not. Today, mobility is crucial to the economy and to the American spirit of freedom and independence. The complexities of modern life make Travelers Aid more valuable today-and for more people-than when it first began.Travelers Aid International, based in Washington, D.C. is the national association for Travelers Aid agencies across the country. Supporting the Travelers Aid mission, TAI provides a myriad of services and assistance to member organizations in local communities nationwide, and also directly administers local programs. Travelers Aid International supports and assists its members by:

  • Encouraging corporate support for local program needs
  • Monitoring legislation
  • Providing educational opportunities for program staff
  • Enhancing information exchange through newsletters, and the Web site
  • Providing technical assistance
  • Supporting the establishment of new Travelers Aid programs
  • Standards for inter-city transportation
An active Board of Directors is drawn from member agencies, corporations, transportation-related organizations and associations, and those concerned with the provision of social services. TAI staff and the Board work together to safeguard and expand our core objective of directly aiding those disconnected from their support systems, in crisis, or in transition"

Hopeless in Florida,it's a miserable situation.

 I've become disabled and not working.Although I do have money coming from a lawsuit,it's not because of my disability,and it may take weeks or even months before I see a penny on that.However, my disability is due to a hernia,and because its not considered an emergency,I have to be put on a waiting lisit to see doctors and go to surgery,which is going to take a while,because I have no money.I have no way of making any money, and have no family to speak of.

     My main situation is this,which I believe hinders my ability to do better then I am.I've traveled thousands(1000s) of miles since  Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans,Louisiana last year.The Federal Emergency Management Association(FEMA) flew me from Louisiana to Phoenix,Arizona where I stayed for a while. But I decided to move,which finally landed me in Pompano Beach,Florida and where I'm currently holding on.The problem is ,I am stuck. No money.No job.No friends or family.And I'm disabled.

   If you could, and would like to help me-out, you can write or e-mail me with any information or help that you can give .My address is :

PLEASE HELP US GET HOME

Hi I am a 28 year old single mom of three kids. My pity story is I came out to Arizona almost 2 months ago. My kids grandfather(loser) promised to "help" me.  Well we got here and nothing.  He dumps us on a lady who I didn't even know.    My car broke down after I got here. So here I am with no car, no home.  I can;t get a job out here or anything.  I am just trying to get back home where I will have a home and a job.  I am not asking for cash, I am asking for train tickets for my children and me.  I am trying to get back to Connecticut.  The tickets are about $400 for all of us.
