Does DHS help with rent and utilities?

I am a single mom and getting ready to go to school in the fall. I make about $800 a month which pays for past debt, baby items, and every day uses. I live with my parents right now and they help me out alot with babysitting while I'm at work but I'm 26 and wanting to be of on my own. I know I'm probably better of where I'm at but does government or DHS or anyother program help out single moms with bad credit and short on cash?

  • You could also call your local dept. of public welfare and speak to a social worker to see what programs you may be eligible for.

  • DHS is does not but HUD does. Call your local HUD department and ask them the process it takes to get help with rent.
