in response to jillfrommass41... i totally understand where ur coming from about people who take advantage.where i live (n not proud of) thats all there is. people on welfare..but..kids look like orphans n not taken care of while the parents r dressed to the nine hanging out partying.makes me sick!!! im living here in this hell because my husband n i got stuck n needed somewhere..definatly not by choice..but thats ok,, my day will come n ill have my own home again n my kids will be happy..i just need top be patient!! oh boy,, life is grand isnt it??? lol talk to ya soon,, susan
welfare does have income limits but if they know your homeless n shes pregnant can help.go tothe housing dept in welfare n talk to them.be honest, tel them u have income, low income, n u just need help finding a place u cam afford.they usually give u the sec. deposit....as for sec 8, as long as your low income they help. the only bad thing is, there is usually a long waiting list that your put on.good luck, i hope this helps!!!
my luck has absolutly changed since ive been on here.i found this site by accident one day when i was searching for christmas help.i have always been a live day to day kind of person, back luck has always followed me around. ive also always been very aware of other peoples feelings n felt bad for people in certain situations but thats about it.this site has really taught me alot.i pray alot more, n not just for myself.ive learned that u should pray for other as well or even first.i now, dont just sit around feeling sorry myself, i do something about it.when i see someone on here needing advice, if i can i help the best i can.i feel more positive in life now than i ever have.dont get me wrong, life is hard, n my husband n i are having a rough time but everything seems to be slowly getting better.when i first came on here i was depressed about christmas for my 4 kids n i didnt know what i was gonna do.after changing my ways of looking at life and seriously praying, i found the help i needed. i had signed up at 3 differant places top get help for christmas,,, they all said the same thing, your toó late.great now what am i gonna do, i thought...then i found a wonderful family top adopt my kids for christmas.i couldnt have been more thankful...then..2 days before christmas the other 3 places unexpectedly came through..i just cried.my kids had the best christmas they have every had. so now ive learned, that life can be good if u live it right. pray and be kind to others, n teach our kids to do the same.i make it a point now top do at least one good deed a day.
ever since i found this site my life has been changing for the better, going more smoothly.ive been praying more n looking at differant situations from a positive view instead of the negative.hmmm,, maybe its because i let things out now instead of keeping them bottled up inside...to al my new found friends, thank s for the help..lol have a great weekend!!
in response to bookworm2011... thank you so much for what u said.sometimes my bigmouth gets me in trouble but this time i just couldnt keep it in any longer.the main thing that bothered me was that she kept saying that she had to tell her KIDS that Santa is not real n never coming again but...in an earlier post she had said her kids were 8, 14 n 18.i really dont think those older 2cried all daybecause santa didnt come.anyhoo....i just dont have any tollerence for lying....hope u had a great new year!!!
in response to widdow mom need help... i really dont meen to pry in ur business but...u seem to me like ur upset with everyone on HERE that u didnt get help with christmas. not many people on here did...giving us the guilt trip that u had to tell ur kids that Santa isnt real n hes never coming again..that was probably the most hurtful thing u could have said to them...im sure u could have come up with something a little less painful..im sure there r many of us that do feel horrible that ur kids didnt get anything for christmas but...thats not our fault n u really shouldnt b directing ur anger at us.most of us needed help ourselves..n one more thing,, i remember seeing a post u wrote saying ur kids were 8, 14, n 18. now i could see the 8 yr old believing in Santa but not the other 2...so i kind of feel like we were all being guilted untruthfully! im sorry, but God dont like ugly n if u live ur life decietfully then yes,, ur not gonna get what u ask for..n yes,, i got good help this yr but i am a good person with respect for other people n i also worked very hard to find that help.sorry if i sound rude right now, im not a rude person, but ur last message to me really upset me.
my husband n i along with our 4 kids have been living with my mother in law for 4 yrs now.dont think i can take it much longer...let alone, all of us living out of 1 bedroom my mother in law is just plain mean to my kids..they r ur grandkids for cryin out loud!!! my husband works but jersey is so high we cant afford our own place..i have back problems due to a car accident so i cant work, even though the kids r a full time job.what to do, what to do??? my oldest son now has anxiety problems n i feel like its my fault..on top of all this, we r not just livin with my mother in law but its in the worse part of the united states to live..witnessed a murder a couple of weeks ago..cried for days...i know there is noone to help me, i just needed to vent a little. thanx for listening!!!
in response to widdow mom need help... @widdow mom...im so sorry u didnt get any help, reading stories like urs makes me feel guilty that i did get help.next year evryone should do their signups right after halloween.most places turn in their lists the first week in november.hope u have a happy new year!!
in response to widdow mom need help... my heart goes out to you!!! the only things i can think of is, check on craigslist under for sale then click on"free"..people give away anything u can think of from hot tubs to toys..also, call all ur local n major charities n churches n ask them if there are any toys left over from their toy drives..you just may b surprised..dont stop at the first one to help, call them all!! good luck!!
to all of u still in need of help for christmas,, ive found something today that may help you!! go on craigs list under(for sale), click on "free"...there are hundreds of people giving things away...seriously!!! anything u can think of.i couldnt believe it!!! ive prayed n prayed n i was lucky enough that angels found my children this christmas!! i am truely thankful!! good luck to u all.i hope this helps..Merry Christmas!!!
in response to Liyahsmommy... if there is a salvation army near u, call them about 1 week before x mas, b very nice n respectful, tell them ur very upset that u missed the signup, u didnt know the signup was done so early (usually october), that youll know better for next yr n plead with them that anything they might have left over would help.....or something like that.u need to get their heart n they will help.get out ur phone book also n call all the local churches.good luck!!!
just a thought for anyone who needs help with christmas, if u missed the sign up for salvation army, toys 4 tots, or any other local charities,, u can wait until they distribute the gifts to the families that did sign up then call them back n ask if they have anything left over u could have....ive done it a couple yrs ago n made out pretty good between 3 differant places...
my husband and i and our 4 children live with my mother in law n have been for the past 4 yrs.i have been praying alot that we would find a house of our own before christmas..this week 2 houses on my street were put up for rent.problem is that the owners of each house is our friends...do we rent from a friend or keep looking???
