Help & Assistance.

Hey ladies, I wanted to know if any of you get assistance? As in, mom grants, food stamps, or medicaid?

            I do I get food stamps and badger care for my children and I do not feel ashamed or wrong about it however people have downgraded me for receiving benefits...I believe if you qualify for it that there is no shame in doing whatever benefits your children the best...I don't know if you are looking for benefits or not if you are call your local social services the process is usually pretty fast and they can set you up with what you need and qualify for

                That would make the situation worse in my opinion I hate that those people get money but think about the children in those situation they would refuse the test and the children would suffer worse than before...no insurance or food in the house sure social services would eventually get involved but i think it could make it worse for the kids in the long run

                  No, I do not get assistance of any kind. I work two jobs. It is hard and I definitely don't like going to the grocery store but I do feel a sense of pride since the money I use to pay for the groceries is the money I earned myself. Assistance is intended to be temporary until you can get back on your feet. I hope you also take advantage of the schooling that is offered to single moms so that you can learn a skill that will make you marketable in the workforce. Good-luck!

                  You're lucky to have two jobs, I need just one myself! Times are hard right now for a lot of people working and laid off, so we try to get all the assistance we need. I too was prideful until me and my boyfriend reached hard times. I also know it is temporary, but everyone isn't always fortunate to be in temporary situations. Do tell me about single mom grants because I have applied for many and none fall through?

                  You're very lucky! I do my best to only use what assistance we need. Even with WIC I only buy what I'm going to use not everything they give me money for. I hate that I even need the help right now but I'm so grateful for it being there, because if it wasnt' I don't know what we would do right now. Hopefully someday soon I can say that I'm not on any assistance either. That's the day I plan to start giving back to those in need. I totally believe in paying it forward.
