I'm 17 with a 1 month old baby, my parents don't help me out at all I'm extremely poor I've been applying everywhere talking to managers everything trying to get a job but nobody is hiring me. I don't know what to do I can't even afford for me to eat. I sell stuff to afford things for my son and any amount of money I get goes towards him. What do I do are there any organizations that can help me get a job?

This is a good suggestion.

Also have you tried websites like indeed.com to search for jobs in your area? I would try fast food. The pay isn't much and you won't get a ton of hours to start, but it could provide you with some money. Ask your friends too. Chances are they know of a place that is hiring.

Haave you tried retail stores? Alot of them are hiring at least seasonal help. It isnt alot of money, but it is something. Have you applied for assistance as well?

There's a place I know, it's called Community Action, but im in PA. I'm sure if you google something will come up. i was 17 whn i had my daughter & started working at a McDonald's...which I'm still at almost 3 yrs later. As long as you put the hours in you'll be good. But maybe try nursing homes like as a nursing assistant, something you wouldnt need experience for...or hotels.

You can try child care centers. Most of them dont ask for experience and they pay for you to get classes and stuff like that for the childcare feild and you will also be able to have your son with you all day everyday and discounted basically to nothing for childcare for him
