Churches. Especially decent sized ones can usually help. The government will probably be able to as well. :)

What the pp have said. Also look on Craigslist. You can usually find a ton if free things on there or even cheap baby stuff.

Any churches should jump at the opportunity to help out. If there is a catholic charitees or Advice & Aid center they are fantastic sources. Advice & Aid is all about helping young moms and offering free parenting classes and help for struggling parents. They would love any opportunity to help when needed. My church is always really good at this sort of stuff, too.

Salvation Army is another good place to turn for help. They helped my mil a lot when her house burned down a few years ago
