  • Babysitting, doing housework for other people.

  • I would think babysitting would be a good way, have you checked into any State programs? You don't mention what her issue is, but many places have mental health services based on income.

  • $1000 is not going to happen overnight with anything you start up.. but it's possible. I have a sites I can recommend that I use and I do make several hundred dollars a month, sometimes more, sometimes less.. it's all about how much time you have to put into it (it is free) Earn Money Here

  • I agree... unless you get a job outside the home, it's probably not going to happen.  You can try to borrow from friends, or get a loan of some sort, but it's going to take a part-time job outside.  Lots of places are hiring right now!!

  • Most direct sales companies have the potential to make that kind of income, but it's not immediate, and it does take a lot of hard work. If you choose to go that direction, I'd suggest picking a product you can be passionate about. is a good place to start.

    I've also heard that pizza delivery can be quite lucrative, but I don't have personal experience, and I don't know how that works out with the current gas prices.

  • This might not be what you want to do, but lots of cleaning services are mucking out houses that have been foreclosed. Call around, you could probably get on one of their crews.
