You are homeless with two children and do not have a job or a car or anyone to watch your kids so you can't work even if you wanted to. You're by yourself and no one will help you, not even the people whos job it is to do so. Now what?

  • I'd find a job and if needed, take my kids to work with me. Then find a daycare for my kids.

  • I first find an empty house and squat second I take my kids to work I work at fast food they can sit in the lobby . When I am not at work we go to the plasma center oick up a basket and start looking for cans anything that can keep us fed every night until I get a pay check after we sign up for church programs or anything that can help them or me with a place for them to go during the week while I look for a second job. anything is possible. Then I talk to any land lord who can and will work with me. I know this because I have done it.

  • What do you mean "no one will help you, not even the people whose job it is to help you?"
    That doesn't make sense.
    I'd call/walk to a womens shelter, I guess.
