I am a recently divorced mother of 3 girls, I have been applying to jobs since March and have not had any luck. I do not have a degree of any sort. I never thought I would find myself in this situation ever.. but here I am. I am now worried that the utilities ect will now be turned off before another child support check arrives. I had to take my daughter to the er and she had to have physical therapy.. which was costly.
I would like information if any of you can help me on how to go back to college so that I can better our lives. It seems to be the only way I am going to get a decent job.
Please do not think for a second I want to go on PA.. but I am a 40 year old woman with 3 kids and finding a job has left me very stressed. And if it means my kids eat or not.. I think you would do the same.
Ty in advance for any polite and useful information.

Start with a community college; the classes will be reasonably priced, many will be online, and the credits will easily transfer to a state university. The financial aid office at the school is a great place to start.
FastWeb is a good starting place to look for scholarships: www.fastweb.com
Your clergy person may be able to point you towards scholarships offered in your religious community.
