  • Maybe she is at someone elses house. Or a library.

    Go to DHS office, you can get foodand bill help there. Go to Police and or Fire Station, they can help with a shelter until you get on your feet. You will have a month unless you can get an extention at the shelter.

  • Go to the Eblen foundation. Or church ministries. Get food stamps.

  • Local DSS and churches are the fastest places to either help you or point you in the right direction...Salvation Army can be a blessing to...Hugs..and best of luck to you

    Maybe she has wifi like I do and dont have to pay for internet.

    First you need to go to your local Divison of family and Children office and apply for food stamps.
    While you wait for them you can go to churches and food pantries
    You can also look into government assited housing and you can get in a place that fits you budget.
