  • Well sweetie, I don't know what to tell you. A work at home job is near impossible when you've got young kids around because you can't have any background noise whatsoever. If they were easy to get and keep, more of us would have them.

    I'm not sure how it would work where you are but if you call 211, I think it is, you'll be put in touch with United Way and they may be able to help you in some way. Try calling your local WIC office and let them know what happening and they can give you more information; I know mine hands out pamphlets of phone numbers for all sorts of things, including emergency shelters for families.

    Hope this helps. Good luck.

  • Do you have a former employer you could work for remotely?
    You can search for jobs that match you skill set and have a telecommute option.
    If you have a computer with high speed internet & Microsoft Office Pro & have at least intermediate MS Office skills, you should be able to find work as a virtual assistant (VA). For more information, go to,, ..
    Do you have a skill or experience that you can turn into a home based business? I have a friend who makes children's hair accessories in her basement & sells them to boutiques around the Midwest. My husband runs a handyman business from our home. I work from home with two lines of business; I do freelance bookkeeping & business organization, I also do career and job search coaching
