 Where you laid off? Receiving unemployment?

Maybe try applying for public assistance and taking some job training classes offered at your local dept of social services.

Also contact Social Services to see if they can assist with bills. If they cannot they may know of other resources in your area that can.

Where is family?

 Hi an welcome to the group..

Go to your local Unemployment office and you can find much there.  Be consistent is the key.

Sign up for unemployment if you can, find a new job, get on all assistance programs. Don't be ashamed to ask for help. Stay strong and don't give up.

Signing up for social services will also help to spur enforcement of your child support.

This and also, go after your children's father for support.

Contact social service and see if they can help you, contact local agencies/churches and see if they have any services to offer and of course unemployment.  Good luck hun!!
