  • Welfare can help. Check in to your local DHS office. Also, selling online? Ebay is quite profitable :) Charaties, churches, and local resources all help. WIC and foodstams are life savers!

  • Why can't you get a job?

  • Find a job? Apply for assistance? Go to school seeing you have family to help? School will also help you to be able to get a job that pays enough to live on.

  • Are you able to work from home? There are lots of at-home work opportunities that will supplement whatever additional help you can get.

  • Be spend smart with the help you do get. WIC is good. Maybe once the baby is old enough and you have healed from delivery you can get some kind of job no matter how little the pay is to do what you can!!!
