Hi ladies, my name is Terri and I am seeking to find a roommate with a child or 2 that is in a similar situation as myself. I'm extremely nervous about posting things but I've gotta start somewhere. Any suggestions please??

I don't know where you live but it will be a good idea to look into subsidize housing or low income government apartments. Or section 8. Habitat for humanity helps build houses for families with low income. It all depends on your income. Private landlords and you can get utility included housing. Best of luck.

In Michigan we have a number for support and services. Call 211. Maybe your state has something like this?  They help locals with assistance on:

Thanks for your suggestions been to most of them but they tell me I'm not poor enough. I receive little alimony and some child support I now even have a job that only pays for medical insurance which in itself is pretty bad coverage. I don't wNt to give up my son but right now it seems to be the only way for him be stable and keep up his good grades. I love him so much and would rather die then be without him. California Bay Area doesn't offer much help to the mothers who deserve to raise their own children. No disrespect to anyone else but if I had drug or alcohol issue I could find help right away. Seems to be a backward system to me

I have no idea but good luck and I recommend background checks on anyone you decide to consider doing this with.
