  • See if there are any homes in your area that rent out rooms. If not then I would just remember htat winter is coming and id rather have my kids around smoke then out in the cold. GL

  • if you live in texas there is paid living called Section 8... check in on that it might actually be around the US... Not sure though.... you have no one else you can think of that would let you stay in there place while you save up money??

    honestly if worse come to worse just go to your local church talk to the preacher, you would really be surprised on how many people are willing to help you get on your feet. If you dont go to church find one that you really like and talk to the preacher there! and last but not least PRAY! God works miracles and he will also help lead you to where you need to be...

    Best of Luck to you!

  • Have you checked with WIC or other family planning agencies? They may be able to help you find some housing. They can also help you find job training, childcare, etc. Keep your head up and I wish you the best of luck!! I wish I could help more.
