  • Call your local community action council. It's hard to give advice to this question because it depends on your area. You could also alternate watching the kids while one works (ex. one of you works days, the other works nights) Maybe put your application into some Housing Units for low income families, then of course there is child support and food stamps.... sometimes you can volunteer at a local food pantry. I'm not sure if every state has it but there is angel food ministries.....http://www.angelfoodministries.com/ You can also call your local churches....good luck.

  • Check to see if you can qualify for food stamps...wic...there are plenty of options..try to get ahold of your states programs...
    I'm sorry that you are all going through such a dire situation..best of luck..xxx
