  • Have you tried county services, privative social services, work release programs?
    How about temp agencies, warehouse work, gas stations? I would stick with smaller businesses. Is there a family member or family friend that could employee you?
    Did you have a job to begin with to get the daycare assistance? Did an agency help you find the job? If so go back to them……

  • If you don't work, why do you need daycare?

  • I thought you could get day care assistance while looking for a job. That or you can get a credit if you have a child under a year old. Not sure how it works in your state.

  • First thing - if you haven't already, check out your local welfare office. Many times they get job listings no one else does.
    Second thing - Check sites like Craigslist, Backpage & Snagajob daily if you have to and apply for EVERYTHING. The worst they can say is no.
    Third thing - Visit it's a social site like this one but it's for felons and the families of felons to help them get back on their feet. You may be able to find someone through there that knows of work in your area. If nothing else you will find support.
    My DH is a 3 time felon, I understand how hard it can be to change. Our system really sets people up to fail... That's why I started my business and I work so hard. I don't want him to have to look for a job, it's just depressing! So, he stays home with the kids and I bust my ass... But for us it's what works!
    Good Luck!
