  • if neither of you are working, go to the employment office, and then apply for tanf too, that little bit extra a month will keep you floating atleast for your baby. in my state a two person family gets like 245 a month. thats aside from wic and foodstamps...but its def. TEMP. assistance and you have to do stuff to make up for the money job hunting, volunteering, school...SOMETHING!....
