Hi, I was wondering if any of you moms know what the qualifications are for WI residents to apply for food stamps.
The reason I am asking is my husband's company let go 14% of its employees on Friday, (husband included). He was the main wage earner in our house, although I do have a full-time job and I still have a salary coming in. Thankfully the kids and I are covered on my health/dental insurance - so we don't have to worry about insurance coverage ending on the kids.
So now I am considering options, seeing what (if any) help is out there and if we qualify. Husband does have severance pay, and a month of paid vacation time coming, so we will be ok for a while. I am staying positive and hoping that husband will find a job soon.
So if you have any advice, suggestions or positive thoughts I'd appreciate it.
