Pregnant woman begging on the street corner :(
Her sign read.
Pregnant, have 1 child, hungry, help!
She looked to be about 6-7 months along. I have medical assistance for my pregnancy because I am medically un-insurable and we lost our medical coverage. They are constantly calling me asking if I want to try to apply for FS, WIC, free baby clothing, free crib, free taxi service to my Drs appointments, all of these programs. Each time I decline them because I don't have a genuine need for these programs, DH makes a good salary and even trying to enroll in these programs would be taking advantage of resources even if we qualified income wise which we so don't I still would only apply if I REALLY NEEDED them. It just baffles me that this woman is begging on the street with a hungry sign when there are so many programs out there! Literally 30 seconds before I saw her I was digging in my purse looking for a nail file and found 5 bucks I didn't know I had. When I saw her and she came right up to my window with her sign I just felt so bad for her children so I gave it to her. How she uses it who knows but I sincerely hope with all the help that is offered here in MD that she takes it and doesn't abuse it.
