Please, I don't want to start a war here. I am just wondering what is missing in our "safety nets" that would really make a difference. We have TANF, food assistance, Section 8, WIC, childcare assistance, heating assistance, emergency food pantries, and probably some other types of assistance I don't know about. Some of these are limited to just a few years. We also have PELL grants to help with school costs.
I saw a previous question on this subject, and some women pointed out that they did not want to be on PA. If the assistance doesn't come from the public sector, where would it come from? If it does, how will we pay for it?
I do understand hard times. I've been homeless (although not when I had children). I have nothing against people using the assistance when it is needed.
