  • You can get food stamps and WIC for you, your toddler and the baby when she/he comes. All you have to do usually is show your lat 2 paycheck stubs and your electric bill, phone bill, etc and proof of pregnancy(a note from the dr) and your ID and baby's birth certificate. They can tell you usually that day if you qualify.

  • I would try local churches, salvation army, and local health department. Also I would apply for food stamps and WIC until you all get back on your feet.

  • when you go into wic, ask them they will give you a printout of all the places that help. sorry it's been years since i've been there so i can't remember anyplace. i know my sis went through wic and welfare. you might have to get on welfare until you get back on your feet. they might help him get a better ed too. they are me. good luck, and trust me, i know how you feel.

  • Welfare office will help you all out also have your hubby go to the unemployment office and they can help him with job search. Everyone is going though hard times right now, some worst then others. Hang in there it will get better.
