  • if you dont qualify then you dont qualify. if you really need assistance the people at DSHS should be able to point you in the right direction as to where to go next

  • Depends on why they denied you. You may not qualify. You might make too much income. You need to go to the office and ask why.

  • there should be a number on the paper work they mailed you I would call and follow the prompts you should get a live person who will be able to tell you why exactly you were denied

  • I find it funny you're trying to insult someone using the term "welfare" when you are asking about getting some!

  • I would plan on adjusting your budget to fit your needs. If you didn' t qualify, start cutting back on things you do not need and start a utility bill budget and begin meal planning. Do you work? Maybe ask for more hours or look at a second job.

  • You could get a job, or find a better job, AND learn to do without and learn to live within your means. That means generic things not name brand. Do without soda pop, cigarettes and or beer. No mani pedi's, no hair color. Turn off the lights if they dont have to be on to save on electric bills, dont drive unless it's absolutely necessary to save on gas. Take a lunch to work instead of buying fast food. There are SOO many ways to save $$.
