Housing Assistance For Single Mothers

If you are searching for housing assistance for single mothers then there are two things you first need to know. The first thing is that housing assistance grants are given by government means and also by private funding groups.

The only way to qualify for these emergency housing grants is to prove that you are indeed having a financial problem and cannot currently pay your rent and bills.

If you recently lost your job or just don’t have the necessary funds because you don’t make much money and live at the poverty level, then gaining housing assistance shouldn’t be difficult. The second thing you must know is that you must be persistent.


Because it takes time and patience in order to find and acquire these grants. You will be on the phone with many government agencies and you’ll also be on the phone with the same agencies. You have to prove that you are indeed in a financial emergency, and this takes time. The combination of grants for single mothers and housing assistance should get you going in the right direction.

In order to speed up the process of finding housing assistance for single mothers, be sure that you get your required paperwork together before you make any calls. This includes your driver license, SSN, birth certificate, as well as your child ID (SSN, birth certificate, etc). You’ll need to provide proof of income and also state whether you currently receive any type of payments, which include child support payments.

Housing Assistance For Single Mothers By HUD

One of the first places to check for housing assistance for single mothers is HUD. The Department of Housing and Urban Development is there to help counsel you on all things regarding the buying or renting of a home. Once you speak with the HUD, they will be able to tell you whether you will be able to receive free grants for housing assistance that will allow you to rent a home or apartment.

Another great place to look is to check out your local State Housing Finance Agency. This agency is in charge of keeping track of homes and apartments which low income families may be able to acquire or rent. They may also be able to assist with housing costs as well, depending on the state.

If you are interested in building your home or buying it, then Habitat for Humanity just may be what you’re looking for. This government agency is supported by government grants and also receives cash donations from the private sector. Volunteers from all over the U.S volunteer their time to help build these homes for low income families. In order for a single mother to receive this type of home, she must also be willing to volunteer her time to help build her home with other volunteers. A single mother will also be eligible for low cost mortgage loans with this option.

      I performed home health care for a multi millionaire who had no children. He was the best man I ever knew and both my son and I love him very very much. He passed in December of 2015. He tried to take care of myself and my son but his POA was stealing from him and would not allow it. I called Adult Protective Services in Oakland County Michigan and a conservator was appointed, he was even worse. He lied to the judge about money is given to me and the judge believed him without a shred of proof I couldn’t get an attorney to take my case even though I had $70,000 in receipts for supporting this gentleman for the last two-and-a-half years of his life because the conservator wouldn’t give him any of his own money. I bought all of his clothes his food his boost his diapers is eucalyptus oils and candles to calm him down I painted his house to get all the stencils off the wall since it was bad for dementia patients, the paint alone was $55 a gallon. My sister and her attorney husband who happened to be the POA got $500,000 from this man’s estate and he hated them they were also abusive to him both my son and I noticed and that’s when I called the state. That was a mistake. They also stole over two million from him and they walked away unscathed.
      I am 48 years old I have worked hard my whole life I have a good job now I was thrown out of the house I was supposed to receive in which I paid $2,000 a month for 2 years I working 16 – 18 hour shifts seven days a week for over 2 years and getting paid for 12 hours. After his death, my son and I were evicted. Now, me and my fourteen-year-old son are homeless living from basement to basement to basement and there is no help. We have moved 5 times since the end of May 2016. I have called every agency and there is no help!!!!! I want to die so bad, I am so tired but I have no one to take my son. I have gone to Church of Christ my entire life, no help there either!!! Everyone around me is on SSD and nothing wrong with them. I have a good job $13.00 per hour 40 hours a week but I don’t drive. By the time I pay for rides and pay for my son and I to live in a horders basement, there is nothing left of my check. I have artholethesis, bone spurs, scoliosis in both thoracic and lumbar areas of spine, along with digenerate disc disease. I also have siaticia and piriformis, fibromyalgia, 5 bulging disc along with 1 herniated disc. I have no cartilage left and I am in constant pain. I don’t drink or do drugs, I do take prescriptions from the doctor but I never overtake what is prescribed. I don’t buy pills and I don’t sell pills. I like my job I work 40 hours a week sometimes more and I don’t plan on going on Social Security disability as long as I can work and I plan on working another 20 years, if I live that long. All I was asking the great state of Wayne County Michigan to do was get me into a house or a place of my own and I can pay the bills, my credit is bad and I just can’t save. When you’re in my situation, people take advantage and take your money, because they know you have nowhere else to go. That in itself keeps you down so you can’t get ahead. If you can’t get ahead you can’t get out on your own and you have to stay there and continue to pay them. I can and will pay my bills, but there is no help. I have no family and no one wants to be friends with a homeless single mother that might need a ride, so I give my money to lyft. I haven’t dated since my son was born in 2004. I have tried to keep a positive attitude but when I look around me and see these people in Section 8 homes paying $150.00 a month and living with a man who brings home $900.00 a week, it makes me sick. And yes his mailing address is there as well, so the State knows about it. This is why all these people on this site can’t get any help because they’re only giving it to people who are scamming the system or who are alcoholics and drug addicts. If they would offer a reward for turning in people who are defrauding the system, ie. Social Security, Section 8 along with the DHS, I would have no monetary problems whatsoever. And what’s even funnier when you go to Social Security fraud on Google the number they have listed isn’t even the correct phone number. They don’t even want to hear about it. I wish and Pray God destroys this entire planet any day now.

      • Lisa McFall says:

        Matter of Fact, I hope God blows the world up right now. Whit my beautiful son sleeping next to me. How peaceful would that be. Then we wouldn’t have to worry about Trump and Hillary both thieves both liars both scammers but of course one of them is going to be the president of United States. What would anyone expect I believe those are the qualifications.

      I dont no were me an my kids,gonna live after we get off the plane

    • t430 says:

      I am a disabled mom( I have RA and crohns), I also have a 5 year old little man with ASD<OCD, severe anxiety and insomnia. Even if I could physical work like i use to I wouldn't be able to keep a job because my son requires my attention 24/7 with his special needs. He is also considered "permanently disabled". I do get a little bit of SSI for us both however The area we live in is very expensive, at least more then I can afford on my own. The home we ( husband and I) got was because it was perfect for his needs and he has Drastically improved. Where we lived I had to withdraw him from school ( ECI) because of all his difficulties. I thought he would be institutionalized.before 16. All that changed when we moved. He started kindergarten here and he has improved to where he at Grade level for some things. He is in a regular classroom and even talking.(not just grunting anymore) Because of the resources,caring,environment and everything that is offered here my son will be able to one day be on his own. Besides the adhd, insomnia,OCD etc.. and learning disabilities he is becoming a happy little boy. Unfortunately the price for all this??- I have to stay with his father ( my husband of 11 years) while he is a hard working,decent guy 85% of the time he is also physically and mentally abusive. I am not talking about calling me names and just throwing thing either.( sorry while I do not condone ANY abuse at all. I have seen some women really stretch the truth for attention and people like myself and others here cant get any help because of them and that really makes me mad) This has been on and off for 15 years so I know its not going to change unless something drastic happens..I ONLY stay because I can NOT support my son on my own. He requires much more then your average child, he wills stay awake for days. You can not discipline him like other kids because he doesn't understand. Any mother of an autistic child knows that its like having a brat.a spoiled brat, a genius, a sweetheart and an infant and 10 year old all in 1. so I am unable to get a job, even know he is school now, i get calls at least 2 a week from them explaining that he fell from running or had another accident or something. He CAN NOT handle any change.. When we moved it took me months to get him use to everything again. It was almost impossible. These are some of the reasons I have stayed with my husband. While he is reasonable most of the time. He doesnt tell me who to talk to ( not that I have time) or any of those behaviors he does exploded every few months and I hate it!! I want to leave him and move on with my life. I dont want to spend my life with someone who hurts me but I have no other way to keep son in here . Does anyone know of ANY programs that will help my son and I with rent,electric etc. A program that works to keep us in OUR home. My son would not be able to stay in a shelter. He cant handle loud noises, crowds,etc.. he would be so scared and I cant do that to him. It breaks my heart i have to choose between my sons happiness and future, and mine but since I am sick. dont have a degree unless I can find some financial help I am stuck. My son didnt ask to be here. I am the one who had a baby with the wrong guy. I was awarded my disablity when i was 8 weeks pregnant. I had planned on leaving the moment i won but I got pregnant so i stayed as he was "suppose"to chance please let me know if you know of any thing in annapolis,md that could help my son and I .

    • Heather Watkins says:

      I only wish someone could help my children and I. I’m a single mother of four and one on the way. I also have a young girl I took in when her parents passed away. She just turned 18 and is wanting to go to college. Then three children that got dropped of and not picked up. 🙁 My soon to be ex husband. Got us to Ky away from my family in Michigan. Saying his mother was sick. When really they had all been on drug’s. Meth. My children and I got home safely thank God. Only after they stole everything from us. From my Sons ps4 and TV to the clothes we all had. They ripped apart my truck that’s now our only way around. Due to my ex not really making the car payment. When I got back. I lost everything. Him and I had a very small concert company that just got us by. But I couldn’t do it alone. An no one wants a women doing that work. So our home, car, dad, everything gone. I had to stop going to school. An was alone with all the Kids. Sad and afraid. My dreams of school are gone. I have no way to leave to even find work so I can get us a home. An thing’s for this new baby. I wish I knew this was going to happen. But no one really helps. I’ve found out how hard it is in Michigan and it’s already hard to even ask. Lord help us please.

    I will be furthering my education in th medical field but i dont have the means to advance myself due to family drama that i need to get my son away from. They are refusing to help be because they say that noone should have anything easy and all i wanted from them is a little help to get myself on my feet. Unfortunately, they have turned their back on me. I am between a rock and a hard place with the new edition to my life and i only want whats best for my child and my current conditions wont allow me to do so. my family has forced me to bounce around from place to place and, that too, is not good for my son. Please help me.

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Kristie,

      Glad to hear that you will be furthering your career; that definitely helps – however the fact that your family won’t even help you saddens me terribly.

      The first thing you should do is find out what kinds of programs are available to single mothers in your area. There are independent non-profit organizations that having programs for housing assistance, financial assistance, and work programs…all of them designed to get you back to living independently.

      There are also national organizations, such as the Salvation Army who have similar programs.

      What state do you live in?

About 10 years ago I found the job I love and not only for the money also for the people I work for butif I was allowed to stay at job and not laid off because o my background I would go to school so I could become a nurse in a nursing homes. Then so then I go to work in a gas station and and actually get to a point where I feel like I might make it raising my 3 children and 1 of my kids have made a family of own and my 2nd is in college and my 17 year old still at he and I get fired for a reason out of my control now II am close to being homeless ,no money and all I want to do is get her graduated and feel like she will be ok in this world. Is there any help out there I know I have madeit this far but just can’t get passed this hurdle

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Keely,

      I’m very sorry to hear about your current situation. Your boyfriend doesn’t sound like he’s much help. I know how it feels to not have any money or feel like your a burden living under someone else’s roof…it’s truly very depressing.

      Like I was telling someone else, get on the phone with your local social services department and start networking and find out every thing you can about the various programs out there for single moms.

      If you can tell me what state you live in, I can research some things for you if you’d like.

  21. Maryann Thomas says:

    I am a 34 yr old single mother. I am a TX CNA, I am a fulltime student (LVN) during the days. I am on payroll of several nursing homes on a PRN statis. So I work maybe 20 hours a month. I need help. They say I can get help if i go live with my son in a homeless shelter. Waiting list years long full of ppl who arent trying to get somewhere like me. Yet I cant and so many other women cant get help. yet if I was to start having more kids,sit at home on drugs. I could get all the money I wanted.
    Maybe you can hear the hurt and frustration. Why wont ppl help? Homeless in 2 weeks.

I wanna find grants for single mothers and go back to school and better my self but i dont even have the money to go back and get my ged… I am in desperate need of help..I just dont know what to do anymore..please is there anything u could help me do?

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Greta,

      It sounds like you’re having a rather difficult time – like many other single mothers are experiencing. What I’m about to say may be difficult to swallow…but this is what you have to do in order for your life to turn around. And it’s going to take time, so you’ll have to be patient. Nothing happens overnight. My advice is this. Start saving $10 – $20 a week to take your GED. Without a GED, you’ll never get a job that pays above minimum wage. Once you get your GED, then you can begin researching options to go back to college or a technical school. This will open a floodgate of opportunities for you. As far as housing goes, check on TANF in your area…they should be able to help you.

I have no car and no place to live now. I can not find anyone to hire me and I have applied to every place in Bardstown. I can not have my babies out on the street and I have no place else to go.

With the bad economy it is difficult to get approved for anything. We have only a few more days where we’re living now and will be homeless after that. I don’t know that anyone here can help but it makes me feel a little better knowing someone, somewhere may be able to help.

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Stacey. Glad to hear that you are taking the steps necessary to become a responsible mother. Jobs are hard to come by, but I promise you that if you put together a well written resume and get out there and do not take NO for an answer, someone will give you a chance. You can’t give up. As far as housing assistance goes, try the Texas Department of housing and community affairs located here: http://www.tdhca.state.tx.us/

    I am a single mother of 4 children.My name is Angela and I am 28, I have a daughter, Mickela 11,daughter Mackenzie 7 (with ADD/Hyperactive/learning disabled), severely handicapped son(Geno Jr)chromosome 13 deformity, 5, and a newborn son with same handicap as my 5 year old. I need a home that my children can have some stability. I spend numerous hours in and out of hospital with both my children. MY 5 year old needs a handicapped home and all my children need counseling. My father helped support me until he died Nov,2010. I do what I can but seem to always be fighting SSI for my sons checks that just barely make end meet. I have no adequate transportation to get my handicapped children to medical appt. I don’t need a mansion just a basic home in a safe area so my children don’t have to keep moving. There seems to be no charities or foundations that can help. I need support, this is becoming overwhelming. Thank You for anything you can do, Angel Marie Jones

    My mother and 14 yr old sister just finished leaving the state of California where they were living in a motel with my step dad and 17yr old brother. They had barely any food, no transportation and my sister was getting sick and not attending school. They are going to stay with me in florida while they get on their feet. They will also be getting a divorce. I am trying to help get them on their feet. My mom has been a homemaker for 18 years of their 20 yr relationship. I am trying to get them set up with food stamps and medicaid but we keep being denied for help based on what my husband and I make. We can help them get on their feet but we cannot afford to fully support them. How do I help them. My sister and mom didnt have water for 3 days barely any food and I am just glad I got them out of there. What kind of help can I get them legally that would look at them as a seperate household? 🙁

    There are section 8 housing program set up in most state that will help low income or no income family or single mother to get housing. being on section 8 i only pay 30% of my income on housing bills( rent and power)some of the programs may have to go to class or be on a waiting list. But it is will help. You can also call church or outreach centers to help with bills some will only give a small amount so you might have to call a few diffrent once to get all the help u can.

  114. Brandy says:

    Hi, I’m Brandy and I have a 4month old son. We currently pay half the rent on a house I share with my mother and two siblings. I overheard my mother talking to her exboyfriend on the phone a couple of nights ago, and she said she was going to move out by February. Our lease is supposed to be until August. Her behavior hints that she is preparing to move, but she hasn’t said anything to me. If she leaves I can’t cover the other half of the rent. In fact, her name is on the rental agreement so I don’t think I could stay even if I COULD afford it. I’m currently looking at apartments but with the bills I have now, and paying rent currently, I can’t save up for a security deposit. Do you know of any agencies that will assist me with a security deposit? I have bad credit since I lost my job and moved back to California and couldn’t find a job here. My car was repossessed and my bills have since been turned over to collections. Is there anyone who could give me a loan that I can pay back in small payments?

I am going to school here but the transportation and lack of child care has me to where this is my last week. I’ don’t know how to drive there for no car. I just need a complete stable home for my children that I can afford where theres good transportation and things educational for them to do. I get SSI but has worked on and off since 2003. But my biggest issues is child care and transportation. Child care would be easier to get if I can find a job I can get to with no problem and stay there longer than a few months. I don’t mind moving as long as I know I don’t have to move a
    gain and its to the right place this time. Any help would be appreciated.

    Hello, I have an 8 month old baby boy and I am in need of any help I can get. My boyfriend is facing jail time, and the problem is I lost contact with him. The thing that worries me is that I was dependent of him. I have no idea what he’s going to do. Can I get help once he’s in jail? Or what if he flees? Thankfully I was able to find a room to rent and I have a job interview on two days from now. The only cash I have on me right now is quickly running out. If I don’t get a job soon, I don’t know how I will be able to pay my bills and all necessities. And also, I am a full time student and once I get a job assistance with child care is a must! I live in the state of New Mexico. What options do I have? Thank you.

He is a bully and very irrational- He has had 9 jobs in 8 years. My daughter works but does not make enough money to go out her own. I unfortunately cannot help her- Is there anything out there that can help her leave this abusive relationship? She lives in Suffolk County, New York-thank you

    Hello, I’m a mother of 9 month old twins. My husband and I are no longer together, however I have to live here for now because I’m unemployed right now. I can’t continue to live like this it’s really driving me crazy. I can’t be in the same house having to see this man anymore. I don’t have any family or friends here in FORT Lauderdale, FL and I feel so helpless. I’ve alway’s been independant & a hardworking woman until I got pregnant and lost my job while on leave. Please I just need help, to try and escape this hell that I’m living in right now. My credit is shot now due to all the bills, cc and being past due on the mortgage. I don’t want to go to a shelter with my babies and he said that I can’t take my daughters to another state to live.

      Hey Juanita. I understand your frustrations and I feel for you. Like I mentioned in the post above, try to find charities/organizations in your area that help single moms specifically. I will be creating a resource for this soon.

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Porsha. I understand not wanting to go to a shelter. However, until you can find something more permanent, I would advise you to seek shelter far away from your abuser. I know the idea of a shelter is not very appealing, but you must do something to get away from the torment you are experiencing. This is only temporary. Once you’re safe, you can then focus on providing a better life for yourself and children.

  175. kaylene says:

  177. jan says:

    hi, i am a disable single mother of two and am currently being evicted from my home. my ex is very wealthy and has paid my lawyer that took so long to get and he was suppose to pay for, toquit my case. He has a great attorney and i could not even get a discovery done on him for he would for sure have sooo many problems b/c he under files.My heart is broken and I am beyond stressed to capacity. It is astonishing to me that this man can own a ten million dollar jewelry store and strip mall, yet myself and my children have lived in poverty for so many years! I have tried so hard to fight but no one will help he owes me so much but has played games and has gone for stretches as long as a year without giving us a penny. I wanna scream to the judge why is this okay how can you let this happen? its coming to the end and he is getting off without paying me a penny! I have no money, no resourcesss had to sell everything including my car to feed my kids and am in debt terribly because of his games and threats. my sister almost died and needs a liver transplant and my daughter has an eating disorder but the worst thing is she has gone to live with her dad cuz we have no water, tv, food and now home. and now she isnt even allowed to call me! i have called so many attorneys and court officals and yet nothing has been done! I am physically disabled with chronic pain issues made worse by the extreme stress, i have helped so many threw my life and yet even my family won’t help me. I am so close to losing my faith and having a nervous breakdown, i’m just sick over this terrible way of life for so long. I can’t believe someone in this world can be so evil especially to the weak and vulnerable and his own kids! but worse than that I feel betrayed by our judicial system and heartsick over the way the check book makes the rules no matter how disgustingly wrong those rules may be! can anyone help me? I have no place to turn.I live in illinois

    • Georgetta says:


      I simply cannot believe that a judge has not made this man pay up! I would speak to another attorney about this, as something doesn’t sound right here.

      • jan says:

        Georgetta, Thanks for your support. What makes matters worse, is the attorney I did have for back pay, said in court right in front of the judge, “I was approached by my exes attorney the day before at a picnic and he offered me 5,000 to quit Jan’s case” and I swear to you the judge allowed it! I am now going with a child support collection AGENCY and at last I see a glimmer of hope! I would highly suggest it to anyone dealing with a deadbeat!

As of right now my son & I do not have an address & are seeking assistance in Chicago… For the past year we have moved from state to state, house to house all because of unhealthy relationships between my family & I as well as an unstable relationship with his father. I realize now that it’s just me & my son. I cannot turn to any of my family for help. If there are any resources that you can provide it would be greatly appreciated. My son is about to be 16 months and I just want to be able to find a stable environment for my son & I.

      I completely understand your situation and wish there was something more I could do for you at this time. Take a look at the grants available in your area (we have a few on this site) and see if there are any that you qualify for. Unfortunately, we are in the process of upgrading the portion on our site that lists al of the available grants.

    • Georgetta says:


      Please get out of there. Even if you have to live in a shelter temporarily, please go. Statistics show that if you do not leave, it only gets worse. Living in a shelter is only temporary until you get back on your feet.

    I am an older mom on SSI/disability. But I have a 12 year old autistic daughter, and there is no father involved. I am living in an area that is way above my means against my wishes simply because I have parents that took me in temporarily. My parents are, of course, older and are unable to help anymore. Knowing this was temporary, I have planned where to move-a better cost of living and better availablity for the needs of an autistic child.I have run out of time and means. Does anyone have any idea of where I can get some kind of help?

  204. Nichole says:

    Hi, my name is Nichole, 26, i have a 3yr old little girl and currently in chester county, pa. Long story short, we (my daughter and i) live with my mother and brother and it’s so unhealthy here mentally, it’s sickening. My mother is bi-polar/controlling/unstable and my brother is a schizophrenic who refuses to take his meds. My daughter’s father isn’t in her life and it doesn’t look like that will change. I’m stuck between a rock and a hard place, i want to work to get both my daughter and i out of here asap, but i can’t leave her here while i work, never mind the fact that there’s next to no open positions in my area. i don’t have my license, because of controlling issues with my mother(although, i’ve paid for 3 cars between the two of them, for them-mother and brother). I’m sorry, i’m rambling. Basically, i NEED to get out of here. Everyday i feel like i’m dying more and the last thing on earth i want is for my daughter to go through anything that I had/have to go through. To say my family is dysfunctional is an understatement. More than anything i want to relocate to another state, preferably Tx, or in that general area. ANY information, ideas or advice would be most welcome and truly appreciated. I’m tired of the controlling and mental abuse and i will be damned if my daughter has to go through it too. She’s bright, funny and beautiful and i will not have any of her broken, emotionally or otherwise.

    hello, I am a 31 female residing in the Bronx with.my mother and with my 11 month old child. I have a 2 year college degree. I have a 1 1/2 years to go for my 4 year but the last semester I was kicked out for not.meeting the academic standard. My husband left us and he was the one paying all the bills I stayed at home to raise our child. I have not had a steady job in 4 years only worked in the summers. I was planning to enroll in a community college to get my grades up and.transfer to my 4 year college but my husband was going to pay since I won’t qualify for financial aid due to bad grades. My mom doesn’t want me here if I can’t pay. I don’t know what to do or where to go. I have no one to help me. On top of that I still breast feed my baby and I feel so bad that things will change drastically for her. Please give some advise on what to do.

  228. Melissa says:

    I’m a 39 year old single mom of two kids. My oldest is 11yrs old and my youngest is 10mths old. I struggled with my oldest child financially and was afraid to commit to a new relationship when I met the father of my youngest child. Its hard raising one child alone let alone two or more kids. I thought we would settle down and have a family, he made it seem as if he would help me and play an active role as a parent. I though he would help me get out of the projects where I live and we could have a nicer place to live with both of us working full time. I waitied 10 years to make sure I was getting involved with a responsible person and that we could help and support one another. I thought I found the right person. We were together for two years when I found out I was pg. Well needless to say, things fell apart. I thought to myself how could I be so stupid falling for it a second time!! He doesn’t help me raise my baby and i struggle every day with child care. My mom babysits for me but she’s sick and my time is running short.I still live in the projects, struggling financially and working full time, also making sure I take care of my two kids. So I’m looking to relocate to PA because where I live right now in NY the neighborhood is very bad. A nicer neighborhood would require a better paying job so I could afford to pay a higher rent. I tried looking for a better job but no one will hire me. I don’t have a college degree and I can’t afford to go back to school now. I also can’t burden my mom with extra care for my little one, she does enough for me and I’m a huge burden to her I feel bad enough. I want to know if there are any programs to assist me financially, I would like to apply for online college and at least get an associate’s degree. My youngest son’s father found out I was trying to relocate to PA and now hates me even more than he did before. So even if he came around here and there before, now there aren’t even phone calls to see how his child is doing. I feel terrible I let my kids down and I picked absent parents to be their fathers, and they are great kids they deserve better, so I’m trying to make things better on my own but its very hard.

  229. Denise Eye says:

    Hi. I am a single Mom of a wonderful 9 year old son. I lost my job in late January and still have not found work. The job market is horrible here in the quad cities. I am currently attending school and will have my degree by the end of November. However, the home that we are living in is going to be put up for sale, so we have been asked to vacate by the end of September. Once I finish with school, getting a job in my field should be pretty easy especially with assistance from the school I am attending. However, that doesn’t solve the housing crisis that I will be facing at the end of September. I, along with many of you do not have much of a family to count on. My parent’s are both deceased, and all of my Aunts, Uncle , cousins are just too consumed with their own lives to help anyone else. I have reached out to several family members who have basically turned their back on us and told me that they cannot help us. Okay. Not sure what to do. So, like I said, I am going to school and attempting to find work, and have even applied for low income housing and awaiting a response. I’m really not sure what else to do. Maybe there are more resources out there that I’m unaware of. If anyone has any suggestions that would be awesome. Thank you for your time 🙂

  234. Amy W says:

    I am a 28 yr. Old single mother of an one year old little girl.
    Up untill two months ago I had been financialy cappable of steadily providing for my child and I. For a year I payed all our bills in full and on time, never late.
    My manager/Aunt was only charging me $200.00 a month. Two months ago she decided to increase my rent by another $250.00 per month. All welfare gives me is $490.00 per month, wich ment i wouldnt have any way to buy my babys pampers…
    So i decided it to be best if we moved in with somone and just rented a room in someones house. I thought i was making the best descion in my childs interest…
    I was sooooo wrong…. Last week my room mate was drunk when we came home. He started tripping hard and tryd to kick in our bed room door. I baracated ourselves inside our room and called the cops….
    The police made me and my baby leave and left him at the house with his kids…
    My lil girl and I have been homeless for almost a week now and honestly….. I just dont know what to do…. I am so lost and scared…. I dont have any family here and her dad has never even seen her by his own choice…. The shelters didnt have enough room and now I am almost completely broke….
    Between having to rent a storage unit and uhaul…
    Dipers ….wipes …. Milk and food untill we receive our food stamps….

We have a 5 month old little girl and i have a 6 year old little boy from a previous relationship. i am stressed to the max i have been boucing myself and my kids from friends and families houses just to stay away from my ex who seems intent on making my life as bad as he can make it. i am in desperate need of finding help with housing and daycare assistance if i can find employment. i have tried looking on my own and even contacted my local hud office but still havent been able to talk to an actual person just left a whole bunch of voice mails hoping for a call back. i really would like to provide a stable, safe, and happy enviroment for my children.

If you could tell me where I can find shelter or renting assistance I will greatly appreciate it.

  243. Tina says:

    Hi my name is Tina. I am looking for some direction to try and help someone. That someone is my husband’s little boy’s mother. She is down on her luck, hitting a road block everywhere she turns. She has a total of 4 kids ranging 17-9, 9 being my husbands son. She has a lot of mental and physical problems which limits her to work, she can’t get child support for the other three kids because one father is unknown and the other is incarcerated. The state has removed her kids but put 1 back. My husband is taking his son but that leaves her 2 girls still in state custody. She has made some mistakes and trying her best to get herself together ALL ON HER OWN. She has asked welfare to help her, yep they helped by giving 178.00 in food stamps! For 2 people with no job is usually 300. For a single is around that 178, she had all 4 of her kids at the time! So wouldn’t that count as 5 people? She found a nice place to call home but with no money she doesn’t know how she is going to keep it. Then there is her vehicle/insurance, utilities, gas for doctor appts. and the list goes on. Me and my husband can only help her so much because he has 2 other children that we also support. Please if anyone can point me in the right direction to help her please let me know.

For the past months we have moved 4 different times, and in the last home we lived in we shrouded up the money to pay rent for the following month which was $400 and they kicked us out the next day, and keep our rent money. $400 is a lot to me since I do not work, I am a full time mom and a full time student at the University of Phoenix. The only help I get from the government is food stand and medical cards on myself and my son. I get No cash assistance from the government. I need help its cold outside and my son doesn’t need to grow up like this. Half the time he is at my mothers house because I am unble to support him the way he should be. I love my son to death and I’m just hoping for a way out. Some people can do it on their own, but sadly I’m not one of those people

    Hi. I am a single mother with a thirteen year old daughter. I lost my job in April and was living off of my savings while I try to find a new one. Meanwhile, I have been going to school and, it took 6 years but, on September 1, 2014 I finally got my Associates Degree (Health Care Admnistration with a concentration on Long-term Care). I am so proud of myself and have been submitting my new resume all over and even have two interviews set up. The problem is, I am 3 months behind on rent and my landlord wants the money or says he is evicting us. I AM SCARED TO DEATH. If I lose this apartment, we will be homeless. I have bad credit and no money to move in a new place. Even if I get a great job tomorrow, I will not be able to pay the back rent. I feel like I’ve been trying so hard and then right when I finally am able to start providing for my daughter, it all is going to fall apart…I’m so close. It frustrates me. I have no family and I worry how becoming homeless could affect my daughter and probably alter the coarse of her life….I don’t know where to turn.

  255. kristen m says:

    I’m at a cross road in my life right now, I have 2 kids 6 and 8. They have always had Christmas but this year the ideal of putting a tree is heart breaking. I grew up with money but my dad killed himself when I was 12 and my mom dies before I got pregnant with my little boy. I have always worked and have a college degree however I’ve not worked in about 2 years I lost my liscence which was my fault but didn’t have any where to go but back home with the kids dad which is very abusive and controlling. Not able to drive, him not wanting me to, and not having my own car put a stop to me working, so after he hit me more than I could deal, I called his mom to get him, she did but not after cussing me and telling me how bad I was. So what do I do? I can’t get a k-tap check because I don’t have a way to get to do community service. My only living relatives are 8 hours away which means ripping up my kids from their family and then how do I get our stuff there. Is there a time that a mother should let her kids go because it’s what is best for them or should I keep fighting. they shut iff my water today and electric is next, I’ve been able to yard sale and scrap around enough to keep my head out of water until now, this is my breaking point, IDK if I can return from this. Any advice, help, or understanding would be greatly appreciated, I’m so use to everything being my fault and if I didn’t do that he wouldn’t hit you. I’m an intelligent woman and I know it’s their own insecurities but it still bothers you.
    scared, lonely, and concerned

  259. Krystal says:

    Could anyone help me? Anything to help.. Information, a place to stay, anything. Please, I’m so scared and worried. I’m 20 years old and a mother of a 13 month old boy. I’m working on a divorce, my husband is not the biological father. I currently live with my dad, he pays all the bills. We have been evicted and are to be out on January 5th. I’ve been searching, and with every search, I’m slowly losing hope. I don’t have a job, I get $142 from Department of Human Services to buy non food items for my son and I, it’s barely enough to afford what my son needs. Occasionally I’m able to afford shampoo and stuff for myself, but he comes first. I also get less than $200 in food stamps. I want to get a job, but it won’t be easy without a place and transportation and baby sitter. I’m in desperate need of help, I don’t want to lose my son and I want a good stable life for us both. Please help.. I live in Seymour, TN right now.

    Hi I have spent the last hour reading through all these post and I truly feel for every person here. I wish I could help them all! I however am a 36 year old single father of a 13 year old wonderful daughter. I lost my wife 6 years ago (7-3-2008) and then my mother and the only other support in my life 2 years ago (8-29-2012). I feel all alone and helpless. I have what is called degenerative disc disease in my neck which causes me unbearable pain and makes it almost impossible to work or keep a job. I haven’t worked a steady job in 6 years. I’ve filed for disability twice and denied both times. I receive survivor benefits from social security, but it’s barely enough to pay half of rent and bills where I live now with my wonderful amazing 21 year old son. The lease is up Feb 1st and I will have to find a place for me and my daughter that I can afford on my own and that accepts renters with evictions due to me being evicted a little over a year ago from my last apt because I a as s unable to pay rent. I’m scared, and all alone!!!! Please someone help a good honest loving single father that’s looking to just provide for his perfect 13 year old daughter who’s been through more and has lost more loved ones than most do their entire lives! Anything will help……… a job opportunity, a affordable place to live, cash assistance, an affordable loan, ANYTHING!!!!! I’m not looking for a handout either or for someone to take care of me and my daughter! I’m a very proud hard working man that’s fell on hard times and due to a crippling injury can’t be as hard-working as I once was when I took care of my wife and 3 children without any help from anyone! All I’m asking for is a chance an opportunity. I am 100% willing to do whatever is needed of me I just need a chance… just an opening. Please someone help me. Thank you all and god bless you all!

  269. audrey aslan says:

    I am a 43 year old single mother of a lovely 3 year old daughter and a small dog. I just became homeless this very second and we are sitting at my work. We need to leave now. I have nowhere to go. My mother passed away years ago and my father lives out of the country. I was left a large inheritance that my rich brother tricked me out and I need to see a lawyer ASAP, my family owes me so much money and are trying to get me to just go away so they can split 2 of my inheritances from my mom and then from my grandma. They are extremely abusive and keep telling me that i don’t deserve any of my inheritance and that i am week and why don’t i call someone else because I’m bothering them. What they have done to me is illegal and I never even saw this coming. It sounds crazy but they want me to just go away and think I am a pushover. I am a normal good person, I have many skills and talents, I am not on drugs or an alcoholic nor do i have any mental problems except for the fact that I am sick from the reality of what is happening. They would never in a million years think I have enough guts to go to a lawyer. I have excellent references, never burn bridges, very outgoing, friendly and my daughter is the funniest, cutest thing you have ever seen. I am optimistic that someone can help me because I am a good person and feel good about myself. I am resourceful and if I reach out like I am doing now, maybe someone might help us somehow. I have a great part time job but all my money goes to my daughters amazing preschool in Campbell. I will not take her out. She loves it so much!!! HELP!!!!!!!

  270. Ashley says:

    Hi I’m a single mom of a six month old. I’ve been staying here and there since he was born and it’s hard because a lot of places that I’ve stayed don’t have kids. And hard trying to keep a newborn quite in the morning or late at night to not disturb the next person. I haven’t been back to work since I had him in July. I’ve been job hunting but I guess I’m not meeting what they want. I have a bachelors degree in Sociology but they say since I have no working experience in my field then I don’t qualify. So I’ve just been looking for whatever I can get. Since I ‘ve had my son we’ve been staying here and there and I’m sick of moving him here and there. So I was wondering if you could HELP ME PLEASE! I really need some help I’m tired of being homeless and I’m tired of putting my son through this.

  271. Angelica says:

    Hi I’m a single mother of 4 boys age 5,3,2,9 months and 8 months pregnant. I’m currently staying with me sister who has 4 kids of her own she is never home she doesn’t cook, clean,etc which is all put on me I know I can’t help with bills but I’m also extremely tired. I need my own place with just my kids asap possibly before I give birth. The only income I receive is child support and once my two older boys start school I can find a job. Up until 6 months ago I was living with the father of my kids but left him cause he wasn’t helping out at all. If anyone can tell me where to go or who to call for assistant I would greatly appreciate it.

  272. Lucretia Kenney says:

    I am a single mother of 3, 13 (boy), 4 (girl) and 3 months (boy) Dad chose prison and drugs over us, so no thanks! I had been staying at my 81 year old grandmother’s house and though we are all mixed race and my grandma the granddaughter of a kkk grand wizard, I’ve been able to take the insults for my children. Now my aunt is offering money to stay here instead of us, she says we have to go. The housing department said our number should be up by the new year, but until then I am at a loss. I don’t even own a tent. New Mexico has little funding and programs that help this sort of problem, but I don’t plan on giving up. I was looking forward to start school again in June to get my degree in English so I can be a teacher, but it looks like that will have to wait. My 13 year old boy has ED and struggles to get by at school. The special education department can only do so much, the rest is up to me and due to our circumstances, his siblings too. We at least are able to receive help with food, but until housing comes through I will continue to search for a shelter that isn’t full of people under some influence of alcohol and or controlled substances. If anyone knows of any kind of help please contact me via email. Lucretiakenney512@gmail.com

    Hi im not sure if im in the correct place. Hpwever i am desperately seeking help. I currenently live in ohio have have lived her most my life however i was fortunate in having the opportunity to live in mesa for a year (truth be told best year of my life) however my grandparent became ill and i had no choice but to come back to ohio to care for them. I would do anything in my willing power to get as far away from this. While i lived in Arizona i went to pima medical Institute, Im grateful I got the opportunity to do so. While i was working 160 hours at Mesa General Hospital, i found a agency that was able to help me with the rent that month. Im looking for any and all info regarding finding a townhouse or a 3 bedroom apartment that a agency could help me for 2 months at best, i know if i was able to have somewhere to live with my kids for a short period of time, i know i can get back on my feet. Ive been out on my own since i had my first daughter at the age of 15. It wasnt easy by no means. But I did it. They give me more motivation to keep pushing harder in life. Please I AM BEGGING u, if u know of any place that can help please let me know. I have a very serious reason i need to get out of youngtown Ohio. I know some people may be judgemental so i feel the need to say no i dont not do drugs of any short nor am i a criminal, just a mom that scared for her 2 daughters safety.

  278. dottie says:

    I have 3 kids, 12, 5 and 1, one of which has Autism. I left my abusive husband thinking me and the kids could stay with family however I was mistaken. The only family with enough space for the 4 of us can’t understand Autism is unkind. She can no longer tolerate my child’s “differences”. We have no where to go. I’m so scared we will be homeless soon left to sleep in the car. I have very little money, have tried renting an apartment but I cant. I don’t make enough to make 3 times the rent, I have bad credit from the bad marriage, I can’t afford a unit large enough to accommodate us. We are in CA in the east bay area. I’m willing to move away from the area but I’m scared my daughter will regress with all the commotion and uprooting her yet again. Please, someone, help us.

    Hello my name is Jasmine I’m writing because I am out of options. Let me start by saying,I’m a single mother if a beautiful 9yrold little girl. My problem is that I’m a felon. I went through a very dark time and in that time I made a few very bad choices. After getting myself back together I completely finished all my classes and probation. My probation officer was very pleased with my growth. I have not had the money to pay off my fines therefor am unable to have my cases cleared. I need a place to call home for my daughter and myself. We are currently staying with my step father and mother. They are moving in the next few months and I am so worried about my daughter’s future. My biggest fear is she will pay for my mistakes by not having a home or a mother whom she can depend on. I’m struggling to find work. Please help me.

  290. Kari says:

    Hi, I am 29 yrs old amd have two truly amazing children. I have worked my whole adult life until about two years ago when my youngest was chronically sick and I was having to miss work all the time to take care of him. Since then I became solely dependant on my fiance of 6 years. It didn’t take long for him to start controlling me and maki ng sure that I had no means to leave. I have been struggling for so long now and he lost his job and then completely bailed on the kids and I leaving us homeless, with no car, no phone, amd nowhere to turn. He has the luxury of going to live with a girl that I just found out about while I am completely alone in a hotel that we only have for two nights with no food, no money. I just can’t stop crying because my kids don’t deserve this life but I don’t know where to even start to get us out of this situation. If there’s anyone who knows which direction to point me I would greatly appreciate it. I am so grateful that I found this website and am able to see that I’m not alone.

    Hi. My 11 year old son and I are currently living with my friends father. I moved back to memphis when my sons dad was killed 2 days before Father’s Day, also my sons birthday. I just need help with getting my own place. I have several interviews scheduled for the next two weeks, so I know that I’ll find a job soon AND I’ve been accepted into a nursing program that I can complete in 16 months, that begins August 10th. I would be very relieved if my son and I can be somewhere that we can call home by then. If anyone who reads this know of any organization that can assist me with paying my deposit and/or first months rent, I would truly appreciate it if you would reply with the info. Thanks in advance! Memphis, TN

    Hello I am 22 years old I am a mother of a 10 month old baby girl I am also 25 weeks pregnant with my second child I currently stay with someone I have been staying with them since April 12, 2015 they currently someone that is supposed to be a godmother I chose to be for my daughter things for us are very rough my daughter’s father has not been help me with taking care of my daughter he never really did when she was born I was in Philadelphia where my daughter’s father is currently living I had left him when my daughter was 7 Month’s because I could not deal with the things he was putting me through I could not find work because I had nobody to care for my daughter he would not allow me to do anything when I came to new jersey to camden new jersey where my daughter’s godmother lives she offered to help us I was kinda in a should I trust her type situation because I was afraid of what I would probably come around but I knew I could not stay with my daughter’s father any longer when I came down here I didn’t have anything no money or food so kindly she took my down to welfare and I had applied for assistance it was a process little did i know when I did that she wanted something in return out of the blue she told me I had to pay her rent at the time I was only getting food stamps until my cash assistance picked up so I had to give her all of my food stamps she kept adding on more and more money she claimed I owed her I didn’t know what to do I was afraid she would put my and my daughter out if I didn’t pay her so I just paid her in the beginning she was taking my food stamps then when I got cash assistance she was taking both food stamps and cash I wasn’t getting very much in cash then I was in food stamps she was charging me $350 in rent monthly which left us broke I was only getting $322 in cash I could barely buy my daughter diapers and wipes I kept putting up with the nonsense and drama until one day I went to the welfare board and explained everything that was going on plus I was there to also apply for housing they kept telling me I could not because my situation was not a emergency but It was because she has income that comes in she works and takes in foster children and the room I was so called renting is the room for foster children and gets called to care for children I told them that I kept trying and trying to get help I was getting nowhere with welfare they kept turning me down I was being taken advantage of in the home as time went on things got ridiculous and a mess she would keep yelling at me in front of my daughter kept arguing kept bad mouth talking at me at some point I did argue back because It was getting way out of hand and my daughter was always with me when she would start a conversation with me it kept getting worse and worse she would not let me eat and when I am able to by food for myself to feed myself and unborn baby it’s not every so often I can do that because I barely have any money at times she would argue me down about not sharing putting my name on it or wanting anyone to eat it but yet all the food they have in the home I can’t have but my daughter is able to eat all the time she gets wic baby milk, cereal, and baby food so I had no worries about my daughter eating I kept holding on for the sake of my daughter but I just didn’t know what to do up until now I am still with her me my daughter and unborn baby who will be here very soon I am due this coming November but I will not be here much longer she kept in forcing to put us out over nothing by law she was not allowed she had to give me up to 30 days until I found somewhere to go and she had to have a paper written and notarized which I do have and gave to welfare to make a copy of welfare told me and her that we will not have anywhere to go once we leave we leave august 20, 2015 in a few days from her home welfare told me the only option I have is for us to be put in a shelter I don’t know how it’s going to be I have a 10 month old baby girl and I am pregnant and due any month now and we have personally belongs of our own I fear for our things we have along with my daughter and myself self caring my second Child I was told it is only temporary about 2 to 3 months and I guess housing can be put in place for us but I honestly don’t know how that works I fear of this for my kids and myself I just have no type of support or help the grand parents of my unborn baby girl are doing what they can to help and will continue to help I tried looking into subsidized housing rental assistance I don’t know much about it but welfare told to go look for work and apply and apply for housing but how can for work I am pregnant and far along in my pregnancy and they know that although I did apply for work I am not so sure to get a job if I am pregnant and ready to have a baby soon but I kept the apply for housing in mind and that’s what I have been doing but have not gotten any luck I told welfare when I went last week I looked at places but they didn’t even try to take it in thought or try to help me with it I will say personally I may think I do seem that I qualify for rental assistance because the only assistance I receive is welfare benefits someone please help what should I do.

  301. Meredith says:

    Hello, I am a single mother of three (12, 10, and 7) I currently live with my parents after my divorce and we went from an emotionally abusive relationship with their father to the same with my parents, me and my children are always being told negative things and I cant afford a place by myself with the little pay I make at my job. I need help for my children and myself. We have no where else to go, please any advise would be appreciated. lipsticktaser@icloud.com

  302. M says:

    Im getting evicted because my friends/roommates screwed me over and depended on me to pay all the bills since we got the apartment, I made a agreement with the manager that I can pay by the 18th instead of the 6th of every month because I had to find a way to make 1440 to pay rent including all other bills money was getting harder to make it’s summer no one needs house work done, I got served an eviction on the 15th and the manager said her boss has been getting on her ass about rent even tho I have a written agreement that says I can on the 18th. I was raped in 2013 and my son was the product of it. I dont know who my attacker is, I dont get any child support. My mom is mentally disabled and thinks that if she helps me she’ll be a vulnerable adult, even tho i never laid a finger or mentally/verbally abused her, she has ptsd from what my father would do to her or she doesnt care idk, she’s the only family I thought loved me unconditionally because of her very religious beliefs. I tried to apply for food stamps and tanf but I was denied because I cant receive child support from someone idk or cant atleast name. I have to make a desicion this week whether or not to put my child in foster care unless I can find a place or even get the money to pay for it. I tried to apply for section 8 but the only two cards I have get declined for a credit check and I cant apply without one. I dont have the resources to get cards in the mail. I dont understand how the military, adoption agency’s, my family, and places that are supposed help kick me to the dirt because I was raped. My son is all I have, he’s not even 2 and I failed him. I had a job protecting this country, Im educated, it makes no sense that there are no programs for women that get raped. I literally had to sell myself to feed my kid last night. I shouldnt have to break the law to feed my kid, this sucks idek what to do.

    Hi my name is Dominique and I’m 21 years old and I have 4 kids at the age of 4 1/2, 2, 1 and just had a newborn a week ago. I did have a job but they let me go because I was close to having my baby and they told me they didn’t have a position for me… I have no income and currently living with my sister but her husband said that we have to be gone by October. And I don’t have any other family that would help and I’m raising them on my own with no income. So I am soon to be homeless and I don’t want my kids out on the streets because they deserve better than that… by the way I do live in Ga and I need help to figure out where I can get help financially…. Can someone guide me please

  306. Leslie says:

    I think it’s BS that mom’s who get a CPS case get immediate housing for reunification purposes but good, single mom’s can’t get vouchers without waiting for years and years. So if I’m a bad mom & put drugs before my kids, I’ll get housing vouchers before anyone else. Ridiculous.

  307. Martha Larios says:

    Hi My name is Martha I’m 23 and at this moment I feel like giving up !! I’m 7 months pregnant at high risk for pre term labor . I have 3 kids age (8,7,3) I was currently doing well but since June/July I be having contractions that had me going to the hospital 3 times . I left my job a month ago because most likely that was the reason for causing my labor to start because I was working 12 hours shift walking around 8-10 miles a day at work . I left the job so now I had to leave my apartment and came to my my moms that don’t have room for us . I got me enough for a cheap apartment deposit but now I’m trying to get a 5-8 hour job at least to support my family and it’s hard to find it right now because they don’t want to employ a 7 month pregnant women. I need help ! I need God to guild me and show me a way to get myself on my feet again for my family . My ex husband helps me with what he can for our 3 kids but my baby father that I’m expecting from don’t want to help me or talk to me no more . I feel like my world is come to an end . I feeling this depression that it’s killing me inside. I need help I don’t know where else to ask for help .

  308. Kim says:

    Hi my name is Kim. I am a single mother of 4 children ages 4-8 and currently pregnant. I left my hud subsidy unit last year to get away from an abusive relationship. I moved in with some friends and have been bouncing from place to place for almost a year. My mom is deceased and father lives out of town so I can’t get help from them, or go home. Well my ex ran up my utility bill to almost 700 dollars, and has since refused to help me pay it off. And 4 months ago, this ex came to where I was staying and beat the crap out of me. I had him put in jail and filed a restraining order. Dcf was involved but they closed the case and refused to help with any kind of assistance because I removed my children from the harmful situation. now I am looking for any kind of help or assistance with anything I can get help with, or at least a list of agencies that would help me immediately. Thanks for the time to tell my story.

    I just left a mentally and psychological abusive situation where my 5kids dad was calling me and his girls horrible names, controlling us, wouldn’t give us money or buy kids school clothes. He then moved another woman in with him knowing I have no family or place to go. Then threw my kids out of bedrooms for his new girlfriends brother. The girlfriend and her brother were doing drugs and talking bad to us as the dad. We weren’t allowed to use kitchen and had to stay in our one bedroom, 6 of us. I finally had enough and called dcf out to house and they did nothing to help and we left next day to only find out the domestic violence shelters were full and only shelter open was for 5 days and I couldn’t have my son there as it was only for females. I left FL with what little money I had from selling a few things of mine the day we left and went to Alabama where it was said to be cheaper and got a motel for two weeks to find help. Left me broke and have still not found any help. Just had knee surgery last month that isn’t healed and a daughter who is disabled. Only get 730.00 a month. Have to leave motel in 3 days and have no place to go and it’s Christmas time. Have 5 kids who not only are having Christmas buy will be homeless. Please help!

    I am a single mother with a 7 month old and I am currently 3 months pregnant. I had a job but stopped working due to me having a baby. I currently live with my mother but there are so many problems and I can not raise my kids in this bad environment where there are yelling and fights. I babysit my cousins baby so I can have some kind of income to pass by. I need to get back on my feet so I can support my kids and give them a stable safe home.

  319. Melanie says:

    Hi I am a single mother of four. My older three live with their dad and my daughter is with me. I recently thought I was moving out of state with her father so I sold everything I had and made no arrangements on a place to live here. I spent everything I had saved on plane tickets and then the day I was supposed to leave found out that he had another family and everything out there. I now find myself totally broke and homeless with a two yr old daughter. No car since I sold it to buy the tickets. With no stable place to stay it makes it so hard because I cant make daycare arrangements or schooling for myself or anything not knowing what city I will be in from one week to the next. I live in san diego ca, please help

  320. Alicia May says:

    Please someone help me or guide me in the right direction. I am a single mother of 2 boys ages 14 and 10 on a low income in a very expensive city. I make about $3000 per month although that varies depending on what I make in gratuities. Because of my income I am unable to receive welfare, food stamps and just recently all of our medical insurance was canceled.

    My former living situation was with an abusive ex and I was able to afford rent with both of our incomes. When we split I had no choice but to move in with my mom 2 years ago. She is bipolar and also verbally and mentally abusive to me and my sons. I work full time between 2 jobs and we are currently living in Burbank but the conditions are poor. She is giving us a small time frame to move out and threatening to evict us. I am afraid we will become homeless or end up in a shelter because I am unable to afford the rental prices for a 2 bedroom apartment in Burbank or surrounding areas on my own.

    I had tried to apply for section 8 and after being on a waiting list for several years I was denied based on my moms income which they insisted I include every person in the households income though she wouldn’t have moved with us if I received the assistance! I have never owned a home but have been a diligent renter for many years. My credit is fair although I am in the process of improving that as well. I am not a veteran however a daughter of a deceased veteran.

    I am hoping to look into as many options as possible so I can provide a stable affordable home for myself and my children. I am willing to volunteer my time and energy and whatever I need to make this happen. I feel theres not a lot of options for working moms like me who are barely making it by. I have an income but not near enough to survive in these inflated rental prices on my own. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you so much!

    Hi, this is new to me but I am desperate for any help available to my family which includes my 17 Year old twins and I. I have been caring for my sick mother since 2014 and I am having a hard time getting a decent job. I was in a relationship with someone who has informed me he was done with and now I have a bunch of bills that I have no way of paying including paying the deposit for my daughter to start college in the fall. I don’t know what to do or where to turn. Their father is unless and has caused my youngest daughter to be taken by cps because she lived with him and he was doing drugs. I have been attempting to get child support for the twins but have had no luck. Please help in anyway I am lost.

  339. Ashley McGoff says:

    I am a single mother of 3 and am currently expecting my 4th because of a flaw in my birth control method. My kids are 14, 6 and 3 and my baby is expected to b born in july 2017. My fiancee, or ex- fiancée i should say, just split after 8 years and i am not working at this time because i was a stay at home mom, but recently have been looking for work, but because i do not have a car, and he took the only car we had, then i am now screwed woth no transportation to get myself to work or my kids to doctors appointments, etc. My son, whobis my youngest, was born with clubbed feet, which is genetic on his dad’s side. He has had 3 surgerys so far and series of cast and so many doc appts that it’s not even funny, and on top of that, i was diagnosed with having fibromyalgia going on 2 yrs ago now. The doc originally thought is was MS, and i still am convinced that it may be MS but will find out at my next appt in a few weeks. The reason i am on here asking fir help today, is because my 3 children, my expected child and myself are in need of housing and a vehicle! I am looking for work, i have a college degree, just no car to get there! And since my ex kicked us out after 8 yrs, i am currently living at my dad’s where there is no room for us, animals everywhere and a huge flea problem! And it’s crowded there with his girlfriend’s kids who are a little older and one of which is bi-polar and not on meds and a drug addict and i stay away from them as much as i can and keep my kids away too, but it’s the only place we had to go to live and i am trying to do any and everything i possibly can to get is out of this house and someplace safe for my children and I to live and a working vehicle so i can work and get us around to all the doctor appointments we all have, especially my son and myself. If there is anyone who can help us or knows of anyway possible where i can find help for us, then please, please let me know as soon as possible!! I’ve got to get us out of our current situation immediately! I would appreciate any help or advice i can get in order for me to better the lives of my children and myself! Thank u for listening to my story and am praying that i will hear back from someone soon!

    My name is Crystal. I am a recently single mother of two daughters, my eldest daughter was diagnosed at 1 1/2 yrs with Periventricular Leukomalacia and Cerebral Palsy. She is also legally blind in her right eye. She just turned 15 and is currently in her 9th grade year in school. My youngest is 8 year old. both of my girls are doing so wonderful in school even given the hardship that we find our selves in right now. I have a solution that would help “House the nation”(CrystalBaker). In the city I live in, here in Colorado, we have a very very high percentage of residents living in temporary housing or emergency shelter situation, including my daughters and myself. I am not currently working. I am trying.to find any help possible that would loan me the money to, not only get my business of the ground (which I plan to use any income to buy closed motels and convert them into emergency housing options for families in my county), but also to put a roof over my daughters heads. I am not even looking for a house to rent at this point. I am just looking for anyone who has a small RV that runs well and works, that they would be willing to donate to my children and I. I would also accept an old school bus that I could renovate if need be. anything is graciously accepted at this time, food, winter clothing and christmas. Blessings to all.

    My name is Gatika I am 28 years old. I have a lot of issues that I will not go all in details about. I have been in an abusive marriage found my way out. In the mean time he decided to file for a divorce and in the divorce he did not state that he would have custody of my two children he had me thinking that it was shared parenting with that I’m thinking we both have custody. it turns out he has the custody of both children. I get them every weekend and when I do they smell, clothes are to small, etc…. I just don’t feel they are in the best care. I would like to get my children but I don’t have a home for them to live in. I live with my father and there is not enough room for two children. I have reached out to so many people for help finding a place but I have not had any luck with that. I want to say it is because of my credit. I am just pleading for help right now I live in Cleveland oh if you have any answers please email me at gatikahurley@gmail.com.

  349. Sarah Gardner says:

    I am trying to Divorce my Husband of 8 years, he is emotionally/mentally abusive to me and it has now started to affect my son. My son is 7 years old has autism and I know I need to get him out of here. I currently live with his dad and his dads parents. I am afraid to file the divorce papers as of right now because I have no where to take my son, and I am afraid of how bad it will be for us once I file. Yet I do not think I qualify for much assistance because I am still married. My husband and sons father has been very out of control with alcohol and drugs. I do not have my own car and can only use his car when he allows it. I feel very stuck atm and unsure what to do. I have tried calling the police during my husbands episodes but his parents freaked out and threatened to kick me and my son out if I did. Is there any hope? How do I get out of this situation? I have nothing and I am starting to worry I will never be able to give my son the safe stable environment he deserves.

  350. Raquel says:

    my situation is i just kicked my childrens father out because he has a bad temper and recently put his hands on me for the first time it happened in the morning why he was trying to stay asleep but both boys were playing around poking him an such just trying to wake him up which they did so many times before this time.. i’d have them both go try to wake him up just like they would almost everyday so i’d have the boys go in and cause it would make my day seeing our boys happy cause they are in a attempt to put a smile on his face cause he never really smiled he had the same couple of expressions on his face always angry stressed or the look of discussed and disappointment at me cause somehow i let him down once again when no matter what i really couldn’t make him happy or put a legit smile or laugh out of him but our children could always bring a real smile to his face even tho it was short an brief moments of happiness it was real an not him pretending or acting and the boys could feel that so they went in to wake him by messing around playing with him and this morning it went on for a bit an he just ignored both of them for maybe 30minutes before all of the sudden he turned to our son an well blew up basically couldn’t take no more i guess so yea he grabbed our oldest by his little arms yelling and screaming in his scared face but by the time i realized what i was seeing was real and happening right in front of me i had to stop him before he inflicted anymore mental trauma or physical pain on him i had no idea what was about to happen after i turned his attention on me yelling at him to stop cause he was hurting his baby his anger was now directed at me and before i new it he was yelling and spitting all over my face an was pinching and squeezing my face so hard he left me with a bruised and very swollen face two black eyes and busted my lip ill never forget the look in his eyes as he hurt us his family.. That early Saturday morning after his rampage was over i swore to my babies i would never let there dad cause them anymore mental or physical pain ever again an i’d die protecting my children form another incident like that.. So i already planned on kicking him out but i was putting it off cause i was kinda scared of what he’d do to us if i made him upset when i asked him to move out but a few days after he gave me no choice but kick him out cause what he did was went and gambled away everybit of his va disability check for the entire month he gets because he was mentally and physically wounded in the Army during his 2 tour of duty that both tours to iraq lasted more then a year an a half each tour and then he diced he would get out after he was stop lossed back to iraq the day he was supposed to leave iraq right then.. needless to say the war did a number on him an the result was he was forever changed and now not just him but our entire life myself i take care of two of my children and him i’m his care giver for the past 6 years i take care of all his needs i do everything for him including bathing him i attempted to create a better situation for all four of us.. slowly over time i just about had given up on him and let us just fall apart because he couldn’t face the fact that he needed serious help and that he just didn’t want to do any long term therapy and there was no quick fix for his many problems including a terrible back injury he’ll have to deal with forever.. he was now the one i feared 99% of the time. i new the day would come when he could no longer bottle up his pain and i was pretty sure one day soon he’d snap on me or someone else.. i didn’t ever think the first time he would snap on one of our children or i would have left long before it happened. ok now i need help asap my fridge is empty i have almost nothing to feed my boys i have not ate just so that they could split my food portion too have more i have no friends or family here where i live in Goldsboro North Carolina in Wayne county

  357. Cindy says:

    Hi. I’m in desperate need of help. I don’t even know how this happened to me so fast. I’m a nurse, a single mother and a grandmother of a beautiful 20 month old baby girl whom has resided with me since birth. Her mother is disabled and cannot care for her. I have a 18 yr old, a 15 yr old, and my 22 yr old son whom is the father of my granddaughter. In December my ex lost his job, therefore no more child support and he states he still does not have a job. On Jan 2nd I was let go from my job as a office Pediatric nurse (unfairly, to be honest and you can choose to believe me or not), the Dr was having a “bad day” and let me go. I tried for unemployment but they fought it. Therefore I do not qualify. I do get food stamps and we all have health insurance thankfully. Two days after losing my job the transmission went in my car. I have no income. I have been bouncing with the kids from friends houses and as of tomorrow as I was informed today, the friend we are now staying with needs to have her mother in law to come live with her and her husband and unfortunately she said I can no longer stay there. I have no family here in New York. My mother lives in Florida and I am trying to get down there. I CAN stay with her with the kids and get on my feet. I know I can. She has very limited money and cannot help me right now. I just want to give up but I have young ones that look up to me. I feel like a huge failure to my children and granddaughter. Honestly, I cry everyday and I PRAY. So as of tomorrow we have no where to live. I am also trying to get temporary custody of my granddaughter until her biological mother can care for her which her prognosis is not very promising. My 22 yr old also lost his job back in Jan, he has no car. It’s been a frustrating sad yr so far. And I am so lost. I wish I could get a personal loan to get down to Florida and get a A to B car. Then I could get a job and get on my feet. I’m not lazy. I’m educated. I love my kids and grandbaby. She is my world. I NEED HELP and I’m petrified. I am 44 yrs old.

  360. Stephanie m says:

    I’m a single parent with two teenage girls. I am currently staying with a relative. It is a nightmare. Almost everyday being threatened to be kick out, being told by relative that own the air. I clean and cool all the meals. I receive foodstamps, so if I get something for my kid to have as snack, it becomes a raging argument because he want to eat what my git is have. Or drink the drink I got for them. We had to hide school snacks during the school year because he would go in cabinet or fridge and we it. I recently have surgery on my door back in may. I am currently seeking empolyment, with no luck. I know I put my self in this situation but giving the previous cicumstances I could not let my girls be homeless. Their brother graduated and refused to come around this family member because he likes to use verbal abuse on everyone. He’s better at everything like he is god. With calling my children stupid and other names, it really is very unhealty for my children. My girls are honor students and far from stupid or a retartd as he likes to use. Any programs available to help us out would be great. I own a vehicle but it has to have some work to be drivable. I just need some advise to point me in right direction. I have to get my girls out of this unhealthy living enviroment. We live in alabama. I have went thru several of these sites, I just don’t think I am going about this right.

  370. Christina says:

    Me and the father of my children (Christina Lesh/David Kerr)  have been living together for almost 20 years. Never married. We’ve not been together for a couple years now. I have recently found out he plans to evict me and my children. I have 4 children, 3 we share. One is disabled, cerebral palsy and wheelchair bound, Her SSI is the only income I have as I am a stay at home Mom. I have been their primary caregiver since they’ve been born as he is a truck driver. He is not a hands on parent. Only financial.  As it is, I am in debt w/ credit cards I had to open to take care of myself and the children. As he uses financial abuse as his tactic. (As well as other abusive tactics)  The house is in his name, as well as the vehicle I drive. He made sure of that. I own nothing and he pays the bills.  I have no family or friends to help or open their home to my 3 children and I.
    I applied for section 8 last year and just received a letter stating they threw it out due to a over the phone interview that never happened  (phone call I never received) I am desperate as my children and I will be homeless. Any information you can give me would be helpful.

    P.S. I am presently job hunting but,  by the sounds of it, I wont be able to come up with the necessary funds in time as he intends to do this quickly so that I am destitute.

I have call every city in CA from Chula Vista to Sacramento trying to find emergency rental assistance from HHS to a few churchs, 211, Google search and so many. I will be evicted on the 10th if I do not pay rent. I have been her over 10yrs and I hit a very hard time. I just had my lo and stayed home to be with her and her sister for the 1st 4 months. Well, I then found out I was pregant trying to find a job but Even tho their not supposed to discriminate…No One hires a pregnant women. I lost the baby Sept 8th. I was 13wks and 1 day. I have been job hunting like a Boss, still nothing. I am scared like I have never been before because of my babies. My boyfriend paid the bills since Oct 3 2016 and his job has no slowed down to a complete stop. We are fighting and I dont know how we will be or if we will be. I had every place I called either tell me they dint help with emergency rental assistance (even tho 211 sent me there), they did not get their FEMA donation, I’m not in their county, they can help me with a hotel when I become homeless for Maybe 2 weeks, the phone # I called just rings with no answer or answering machine, or the # was just straight disconnected. I have until Tue and then me and my babies are out. I’m 41, no family, no one to turn to, feel completely alone, and did I mention we have a Hepatitis A outbreak in the street of the homeless. My 7mo nor my 2yr deserves this and I did it to them. I think I have cried all my tears away. If anyone knows where I can call please let me know because I Have been on the phone for a week finding no help. I’m Actively searching for a job but now if I’m homeless I can’t take it. I dont know what do to bit my heart is ripping apart and I feel like I’m falling in a dark hole with my poor babies.
