  • I live in NC and when I was a single mom and called about housing assistance I was told the waiting list was several years long! That was 5 years ago, so not sure about currently but I wouldn't count on it. Can you get a job here prior to moving? There are tons of places hiring around here, so it shouldn't be too hard. Do you have any savings to rely on until you get your first paycheck? You should be able to go into a homeless shelter, I would think but I know when it's cold they fill up.

  • I think I would sell everything I could to help with finances. Most things are replaceable. Definitely finding a job before going is good.
