  • She might make too much for WIC, but still qualify for reduced rent, childcare, medical insurance, etc. Tell her to check out the states website (if she can get access) and fill out each and every form they offer. Sometimes you may not "qualify" for something, but if you are on the list and there isn't a full roster of people for the service then she could get on it.

  • OH...and she should contact her utility companies and see if she qualifies for any discounts. They usually base it off of how many people live in the residence and how much she makes to figure out a reduced rate.

    Also, if baby's dad is not in the picture try to get support (may require visitation, but some guys are willing to give up visitation in exchange for less support money..)
