I want to help people, ever since I've been little I have known that my calling has been to help people, but I just don't know how.
I'd like to do this from home though or where my children can be with me.
As a teenager I use to public speak to juniors and seniors in high school about growing up and not making rash choices. I also use to go to hospitals and speak with parents who had to make a decision about amputating a child's limb for medical reasoning. I would also speak to children-teens about acceptance of who they are and never giving up on dreams just because they have a disability doesn't mean they can't accomplish their goals.
I have thought of starting a non-profit .inspire.encourage.believe. , but again with that - non of this pays me and I need money to live....
Any ideas out there?

Check your local hospital or nursing home agencies. There is currently a job opening at mine for a Volunteer and Bereavement Coordinator. I would love that job and it sounds like it might be a good job for you. It's not work at home but many companies are offering daycare on site. As far as your prosthetic, could it possible be ill-fitted? If not, could you take it off and let it rest and only use it when needed?

ymilr0718, AmeriCorps VISTAs now receive a minimum of $935 living stipend a month and the education award is $5,500. It is an excellent program (I am currently in my second service year), however, I would worry about childcare. While they do pay if you qualify, it does take about a month of two to get them to pay and you have to stay on them every two weeks to pay.
