money for single mothers

 

Living a life of single moms can be very difficult. It sure does make life a living hell particularly when bills after bills are being laid up on your doorstep. Single moms have to deal all these problems alone since they do not have someone to share the burdens and responsibilities. Having someone to share the expenses will surely make a huge difference. However, single moms do not need to worry anymore because there are grants available now for you. Actually, some of the assistance caters to your primary needs. Not only these programs applicable for single moms but also for those low income families. There is money for single mothers available from the government if you know where to look!

So what are some of the government’s assistance for single moms? Here are some of it:

  • Food: the basic necessity

For single moms who are low earners and cannot meet the daily budget for food allowance, they can get help from the government. Actually, they can even get help straight from the local charities at their place or even to those religious organizations who have programs and services in extending aid to the less fortunate ones.

  • Shelter

Shelter is really one of the basic needs that must be met with to shelter your kids from storm.  This is a place where you want to relax and have the time to rest. Since there are single moms out there who do have problems financially, they cannot meet the monthly rental and they have a big chance of losing their only home. However, single moms should not worry about this since there are many ways to solve this predicament of yours. Emergency housing is one of the programs that you might be interested at since you can apply this in emergency cases. Furthermore, there are also housing assistance that you can choose from.

  • Other concerns

If you have problems in entrusting your kids to a person if you want to work, you do not need to worry about this. Daycare assistance can provide solution for your dilemma. You can entrust your kids to them and you are guaranteed that they will be safe until you fetch them. This way, your mind will put to at ease since you can entrust your kids to people that can be trusted.

  • Scholarships and Educational Grants

There are a lot of single moms out there who want to pursue their education and want to earn a degree in college. Finishing their studies can give them a big chance in getting a career in the future and can help them earn big salary. Although this could be a big decision for single moms who want to finish their studies, but sacrifices can be paid with more blessings. This could also help you in alleviating your current situation and could help you provide all the necessities for your kids. Since education is expensive for you and you are out of budget for this, well, here’s the good news for all single moms out there who want to continue their studies without bills for you to pay. Here comes the big help for you. Actually, there are programs and grants available for single moms which are offered by government and non government sectors. You can have the option to choose from the grants offered. You may apply for scholarships that are intended for single moms. However, the budget allocated for the scholarship and the extent of assistance may vary.

Here’s how to apply for scholarship grants for the single moms:

  • You need to fill out scholarship applications. The more applications, the more chances for you to get a scholarship.
  • You need to have good grades.
  • You must have to fill out the scholarship properly and thoroughly. Having a properly filled application can offer you the best chance of getting a scholarship. That is why, you should think many times before entering the appropriate data.
  • Food Stamp Program

There are government services offered such as extending financial aid particularly to single moms who are badly in need. For sure you will have a big chance to avail this grant since these programs are intended for the single moms. You can visit your human services department on your area for more inquiries regarding this program.

  • Assistance for families in need

This is a well known program that provides financial help to those families who are in need. This program is intended for those families that are besieged just to make ends meet. Not only that this program extends financial help but as well as in providing the single mom a job. She can have the chance to work for 30 hours a week.

  • Children’s Health Insurance Program

This is one of the many services offered by the government that offers medical insurance for the children. This is really a big help for single moms since they can only pay small fee or required not to pay anymore as it is case to case basis. This program covers medical and dental services for the children.

 

  • Free meals program

Since single moms cannot provide and cannot cater all the needs of the children, the government has a meal program that help kids eat proper and nutritious food. This way, the kids can be guaranteed that they have eaten nutritious food and can get the proper nutrients of their body. You need to be evaluated and need to be assessed for you to qualify and avail the program by the government.

  • Home jobs

Financial help can be readily available for single moms. You can have the chance to find jobs right in your own home. You can be a contributor as web content writer for a particular web site. It is an easy job for you as long as you know how to write articles. It is a freelance work and this could be a great help to you to pay your bills.

Single moms need not to worry

So as single moms out there, you need not to worry in times when you are struggling just to make both ends meet for you and for your kids. There are various programs and grants available that will surely help you in your daily struggles in life.

    what city and state do you live in?

  • Broken

    I am a single mother of a 12 year old girl.  A beautiful girl who is turning into a little lady.  She has always had such a strong mother until about a year ago.  I hate that at this time in her life when she should be off with her friends, and enjoying life, all she sees is her mother falling apart in pieces, crying and not wanting to leave the house. 

    My daughters father doesn’t give me any money.  He has turned to drugs so I fought very hard to keep him out of my daughters life.  The judge ruled in my favor, and stopped him from seeing my daughter.  They threats got so bad, and I had to get a restraining order against my daughters father.  We were in and out of court for years fighting about all of this stuff, that the judge finally took his rights away.  saying “I have never ruled for a mother not to get child support, but this man is a danger to your daughter, and having him pay, will only keep him in your lives”.  Although i’m so happy he can’t hurt my daughter anymore with the verbal abuse, and all the threats, life has been so hard for me to take care of us.My daughter has Celiac Disease, and the food is very expensive that welfare isn’t enough money since I lost my job.  My daughter also has a learning disability, and needs a tutor which i can’t get for her anymore.  I own a home, and as of a couple of years ago, I never had to get assistance.  I did everything on my own, and was glad one day my daughter would be so proud that at least her mother made sure to give her everything she needed to be happy and healthy.  All my daughter sees is me crying all the time, and has noticed i have been totally disconnected from everyone and everything.I can’t get a job.  I got a mothers job to be around for my daughter because of all the time I had to be in court, how sick she was with her disease, and to be around for her for all the meetings i have at school for her disability.  The job i had was very patient with me and let me make up hours, but since i lost that it has been very hard.  I was a successful sales person on the road when I had my daughter, and since I haven’t been in the industry for years, the education requirements, the technology, it is so hard with me to compete that I can’t get a job.  I am collecting 189.00 a week, and 200 dollars a month from welfare.  I am about to lose everything that I worked so hard to keep for my daughter and I.  I am scared, and mostly I am so beaten down that I feel I have nothing left.  I hate to say this, but if I didn’t have my daughter, I would much rather be dead.  Life has been so hard for me and my daughter, and it didn’t have to be like this.  I had to be around for my daughter, I had to be the one that had to keep a roof over her head, bring her to all the dr. appts ect, but I’m about to lose everything.All I need is a chance to show someone that I’m something even though i don’t have a degree, and I am smart enough to hold down a job, or I need a break, a miracle, some hope.  If anyone can help me with any ideas…please…let me know.  I feel so hopeless.  I need a peak in my valley to carry on because I hate that my daughter is seeing me like this, and seeing how people just don’t care enough to help.  How am I supposed to teach her always to help other people, and always be nice when she doesn’t see any hope in her future.If you read my story, thank you for taking the time to help.  It is much appreciated!clevy9@verizon:disqus .net

  • Angela Ferrell

    I am a single parent of two great teenage girls,13 and 14. I go to school fulltime and work part time. it has always been a struggle, but we have prevailed. Things changed about two years ago. I was working 60 plus hours a week. Besides my children suffering at school and throuh the normal “girl” stuff, I also ruined my feet and legs and realized we needed a better life.That is when I decided to go back to school. That was before my car broke down, my air condition unit went out, and just the usual turmoil that life can bring.
      My parents bought a mobile home and the rent I pay makes the payments and I also rent a lot for it. They put there self on the line and now I am letting them down. The payments are less than renting and I don’t know where we go from here. I feel I have no choice but have them put our home up for sale.In todays market, it may not even solve the problem soon enough. My parents have helped all they can. Now they live off SS and we all know how hard that can be. Even quiting school may not help because I am constantly lookin a part time job but nothing has come up. After all these years of single handedly taking care of my own, I have failed.

    Hi there, If you go to the cash assistance office which is at any one stop centers in your area and do 25 hours of community service and give them three estiminates from three different car repair places and hand them in to the girl who is over the cash assistance program where you live, I was told they will pay to fix your car and even give you gas for your car, clothes for you and your kids if you have any, help you get a job, and so much more so hopefully that will help you out a little I hope. I am lynn from florida and a single mom of one son who is five and I don’t work because jobs  are so bad here. I am willing to help any mother because we all need to stick together out here in this crazy wild world. Call me at 3868688351 so we can chat okay. What’s your number also please. Good luck and hold your head up high because I am here for you when you need me okay. I love all people that is a gift god gave me and I use it to the best of my knowledge too. God Bless you and your family always and forever. Lynn Borelli my e-mail is snlb1970@yahoo.com

    I am a single mother of two beautiful kids, ages 12 and 8. I was laid off a year ago and living in an over crowded house with a friend and all of her extended family. The only thing i am in need is  , would be housing. I am a full time student trying to better myself and volunteering at a local domestic abuse women’s shelter in my free time. I am not about, I need this and that blah blah blah, when I am trying to teach my children in giving back. Cant be all about taking 100% of the time. The father of the children gives me nothing at all. I prefer not to use the government for any services, but I might have too soon, since my unemployment benefits will run out very soon. I try the best I can with what I have, and always with a positive attitude. I am in the orange county, ca area if anyone has resources for housing, that’s all I really need, and in return I can help do what I can to give back to the community. I really do need to remove myself and my children from where we are living now.(I think some illegal activity is being done) Any information would be welcomed. lisamarie39@yahoo.com

    Well, I am past frustrated…as are most single moms, even single dads, at the lack of help available. At 56, almost 57, and with a 14, almost 15, year old son, I find that I am not quite old enough and he is too old for most of what’s offered in Missouri. I’ve been through Catholic charities and although they have helped a few times over the last 3 years, they have now decided they are not around to “support” us. Why did they say that? Because I finally gave up after 10 years of fighting and filed Chapter 7. That answers all problems, right? lol…I did it to stop a garnishment. Had I had the funds to pay on the bill, there would have been no garnishment. Work in a pizza place for over 4 years now and given I have a degenerative bone disease, have no hip and left knee about gone…but I suffer through with standing and being on my feet for 8-10 hours a shift for babysitter’s wages. Yes, receive court ordered child support, yet that has not changed in 12 years…and high school is not cheap, nor is food, rent, utilities, or a car that has 198,000 miles, which we affectionately call the “Wildebeast”.

    My true frustration lies in this. I make roughly $100 too much a month for food stamps, yet if I buy any groceries, either our rent is paid late (and tack on over $100 in late fees) or…the utilities “slide”. We receive a disconnect notice each and every month for this year. No one was willing to help whatsoever with this and mentioned at least it wasn’t that cold…yet. I should have included them in bankruptcy, but didn’t have $300 for a deposit, if I did. Where in the world does one find some good, old fashioned help for a family of two that fit in no correct age bracket? I’d love to start on disability, even seeing a doctor would be nice as haven’t since 2008. Can’t afford even the “discounted” prices of health department as something always seems to go wrong. Now, son needs new glasses, his are about to break, yet since his father has him on some bogus insurance thing in another state where I have to pay $600 FIRST before it can be used, well…let’s get real, ain’t got it.

    Looking for some truly viable suggestions for food help, utilities, even a legitimate online job where I can set hours (to work around current job until I drop there….which by the way I took on a whim as was moved out for 3 younger women from my high end job in corporate:)) and do NOT have to spend one cent….ANYONE…ideas? it’s wearing heavily on both of us and I am not about to let my son be permanently damaged in any way by this long haul. Oh, yeah, for those who are thinking what about daddy…in June, son and I completed a 5 year court battle to limit visits as my son does not like his father…or the wife, her kids from various husbands, the mice in his room there or even the brown recluses….that took over $15,000 – our tax return for each year:) Daddy makes $108,000/yr just himself, got the retirement, home, etc, etc….he was an abuser and I ran when my son was only 3 and close to the punishment. Whew.

    Anyway, options…anyone? Please??? I know God has us, He brought me here but I also know He only helps those that help themselves, so….looking for help:) God bless all of you and may His light find a way onto your path!

All products are healthy and Non-Toxic and less expensive, it is a win win for us single mom’s….The #1 thing that I tell people to switch from their Current Store / National Brand is ….Our products do not require Safety Caps, Remember I have a 3 yr old and he is into everything…So why not try, take control of your life, stop waiting on others or that miracle to happen, I believe in miracles to and I prayed that God bring something I would love and have the ability to sustain my family, I then found my current business…I watched the overview….

For me that was not the case so I have made this my JOB, I work it like a Job and I remind myself daily that I am my own boss and it is up to me to create an income that will sustain my family. The Company I work with does not require a large start up amount, I started my business for $80 included in that was $60 of products that I use everyday, I love the products and I feel good about helping others, I am passionate about my financial abilities again & that feels great! ….No harm done in sharing, I am always looking for business builders and people are looking for real opportunities not false promises…… so if you are interested in switching stores & earning money from the company you purchase your everyday products from, instead of paying your hard earned money to National Brands for commercials and celebrity endorsements & are tired of seeing your money sent to other countries, Call Me….Keep Our country strong by shopping true made in the USA products and your bank account growing….Stephanie 360-477-1194 or email to goodgirlapryl@yahoo.com *****I would love to list the name of the Company I market for but guidelines regarding using their “name trademark” prevents me from sharing that information unless I am speaking directly with you.

    ~ I will keep you in my prayers, you have been through enough and more than anyone should have to experience…May you have a very Merry Christmas!

  • Stephanie

    Contact your local DSHS office and contact local churches….there is help out there, you just have to look for it. Affordable housing is available for Single Mothers….Keep your prayers up and I will put you and your boys in mine… If you are ever interested in learning about what I do to financially sustain my family call me Stephanie @ 360-477-1194. I am a single mom of three and while I may have not experienced all what you are going through, I do know about the stress to provide everything for children and not always being able too. * I do not work with a MLM company that promises you will make 100′s of thousands of dollars (been there done that)…I work with a real company that makes sense. I do not carry inventory, I spent $80 to begin this business, so you would have to be prepared to spend around that amount and continue to spend around $60 in products for your own personal use monthly, the awesome thing is that it is on products that you already use daily, there is no new money required to be in a business and no new money required to stay in business, if you love the products and share your love of them with others and have a “Who can I help today?” attitude, you will be successful! Wouldn’t it be great to be providing for your children on your own? ***Also we offer a 100% money back refund policy if you are unsatisfied in any way and all our products are manufactured in the USA!

  • Stephanie

    Oh my goodness reading your story I am so sad for your situation…I have been replying to almost everyone on here, which was not my intent when I first saw this website, truly. All your stories are heart wrenching…All I can say is I can relate to a little of each one I have read…I am a single Mother of three and I work from home, I work with a company that has the highest rating in the Better Business Bureau and is not a Multi Level Marketing Company….We are a leader in the Health and Wellness industry and we compete for a major market with Companies like Proctor and Gamble….I share in the Companies Revenue for sharing their products which I love and Everyone uses daily with over 350 products to choose from it is easy to share with others, I am always looking for business builders and would love to help you, it takes a half an hour on the phone for an online overview of the Company, if you are interested Call Me Stephanie @ 360-477-1194…I was in business for $80 and I purchase products from the Company monthly to stay in business, that is something you would need to keep in mind…You need to spend money to make money in a home business, however I can say, I have had “Real” results with this one.

    Well it’s an option : ) Good Luck to you and your family. Have a Blessed Christmas…

    Why don’t you go on Social Security disability. Even if they approve you, just hire a SSDI lawyer. They will get you the money. I had a few friend who did that and now they just sit home and take money from the government. If you really are as sickly as you say you are, there should be no problem getting Social Security Disability and food stamps.

    Why don’t you start a doggie-daycare business or a daycare business in your home? You could also sell merchandise on eBay. Just ask all your friends if they need any items sold on eBay and tell them you will take like 40 or 50 percent commission. I love the doggie-day care idea. I make a lot of money doing this.

  • Zumbadaisy

    i leave in nj and im a single mom of a 1 year old boy i work 21 hours a week and get paid $10 a hour what should they be taking out of my payroll?

  • Equalizerjane

     because its not as simple as doing that…. people cant hire a lawyer with no money …….. and no most dont wait for their money. in michigan where i live money restrictions make it impossible to ever get off welfare if you are on it and also impossible to get help if you make one cent over the guidlines. then like she said you have to buy groceries for your home and even buying things like ramen noodles and milk become so expensive other things have to get put on hold. every state is different and my state is one of the toughest to get help. it also has the highest unemployment rate and is one of the poorest states in the country. but those of us that live here dont have the money to move!

  • Nikifrisby

    lo.

    My name is Niki. I am in financial trouble. My x was abusive
    and when I finally kicked him out, he not only took my dignity and self-respect,
    he emptied my checking account. I got a title loan on my car to try to make ends
    meet. I couldn’t afford the payments and got payday loans to cover the title
    loan. I am in a massive hole now. I have made huge mistakes with these loans. The
    interest rates are astronomical. If I had not of been in trouble to begin with,
    I would have never of gotten them. But now I am in more trouble than I was to
    start with. I have bad credit and no cosigner so I can’t get a loan from the
    bank. I have reached out to churches and charities. I work full time, but I am
    never going to make it if I can’t get out this hole. Please help me. I am in
    desperate need of $2500. If I lose my car, I will lose my job. And then I am
    really in for some trouble.  No one will
    help me. I don’t know where to go. I just need something to go my way for once.
    I just want to be able to sleep soundly and smile again.  bdc_jonesie@yahoo.com

    I was checking this website for my daughter, a single mother of two.  Although I cannot help you with your search for a job unless you can drive a tractor trailer, I have a suggestion that may help a little: try applying with a temp agency or two.
    These days many companies are using these agencies to fill in during times of peak need.  More and more companies may start to see agencies as recruiting for temp to hire- more like a trial before hire.  And there are companies who use agency employees on a more permanent basis.
    A temp agency may have flexible schedules, part time work, and they may have one of these longer term or permanent opportunities.  Many times I have hired through these agencies and have gotten some really good people! 
    The best way to showcase your abilities is to get past the front door of anyplace and then do your best.  Don’t fool yourself though; if you want flexibility and the job has rigid hours with little or no flexibility there is no way to make that work.  If you want full time or health benefits and the temp job you take does not have that as an option, work with that agency rep to find what you want.  All the while, you may earn some money as you either look for the job you want or opportunity in a company you want to be a part of. 
    Every day is an interview in most places- especially in a market where people with advanced degrees are applying for entry-level jobs.  Know what you can handle: #hours a week, schedule you can work, type of work you can perform- or perform well.  Your work ethic and dependability will impact your opportunities with whatever agency you join.  Those who do many things and do them consistently well and a re dependable will get calls to work more aften than those who don’t measure up.
    It’s worth a try!

  • Jscarletf

    My niece lives in Houston Tx and needs an ultrasound on her liver but her insurance from her school aid job wont pay for it.  Does anyone know of any resources for this?

  • Kimy

    Hi So sorry to hear of all your stress. I have had awful times and even now when I think things have settled a whole lot of stress had come back round for me but hold on as hwild yo have your children you have everything. You can get help with school uniform. school meals and even trnspoet if your situation allows for it..please fo to you rlocal hub, citizen s advice bureau or a helpful scoical worker to point you in the right direction. Good luck! If you visit the cab they will divise an expeniture sheet for you of incomings and outgoings and arrange for you to go bankrupt..this stops creditors hassling you and you pay a nominal fee each month to all the debters.  I know it s not easy and it s tring trying to do everything under difficult circumstances but you sound resourceful and just keep that inner belief as I am sure if you just take on my adivice things will turn aorund. Also you may want to go on meters for gas, electric and water. That way any debt is incorporated weekly in a small pay back fee and you then inset your top up card with whaat you choose to credit. there is also an emergenay fo about £5.00 loan on it if you get desparate but you have to pay it back after you use it along with nominal pay back fee and your top up. I hope that helps. Good luck!  Kimy6666

    I m a single mother with five kids I lost my housing running from an abbussive husband homeless I have lupus tried disability pleas someone help

  • robert

    this site is sexist against single fathets like me! I find the gender bias disgustingly discriminating

  • robert

    I raised 3 children without any help from their mother. My ex is over 6,000 behind on support and wa only ordered to pay 141 a month on THREE children when we split in 2001. After I remarried in 2005 she stopped communicating at all with all three children. I never understood how a mother could simply walk away. I even messaged her on Facebook and said I would write off at least $5,000 of the rearage if she just communicated and acted like a mother to her children.

    My oldest is 24 now and has a 3 year old. My ex seen our grandson ONCE for 3 minutes and held him like a bag of groceries. NO emotion what so ever. that was at a show cause hearing about two years ago.

    I could not even imagine not having my grandson around my current wife and I get him at least 5 to 6 days a month. My kids, as well as my grandson are my liife.

  • robert

    do not give up. I was a single dad of 3 at the time we became homeless I just became more determined. Today I am remarried still living pay check to pay check but have it much better. I nearly died from a hereditary disorder four years ago but made it past that too. I was out of work for nearly three years while being told that I needed AA. This only irritated me more, since I do not drink any form of alcohol what so ever and do nor use drugs or even smoke.

    My disorde, hemochromatosis or what is also called iron overload is controlled now. You can only take it one day at a time. I am being told that my life expectancy is about 60 maybe 65 at the most. So I am making the best of the hand I have been dealt. it is simply life, with no gaurentees. I am just hoping to be around to see my grandson graduate high school. possibly see him get married ..maybe. that part is pushing it.

    My life insurance cancelled me and with pre existing conditions I had issues getting health insurance. So I just quit going to the doctors for almost a year.

  • StrugglingSingleMomma

    I am a single mother of a beautiful, 7 month old daughter. As of now I work a seemingly endless 50 hour week as a waitress. I am in a dead end job with no routes out. I am 22 years old and looking to start my education. I want my daughter to grow up in a good home. I want her to be able to look up to me and of course the desire to see her want to BE like me. I want to set a good example for her. I am searching all over the net for scholarships and grants for single mothers. I thought I heard somewhere that a single mother could get most of her schooling, if not all of it paid for. So far I am not having any luck finding much. I am now desperately seeking advice from anyone who might know how to go about grants for single mothers. Basically, I am wondering if there is one particular sight where you could fill in your personal/financial info all in one spot and then they determine what you would qualify for??

  • Sonia

    Hi, I thought that there is nobody to talk about my problems. But today I found this pages.
    I am as a single mother for more than 12 years. During these years I could not regularly take children support money from my ex. So, I have been working with a mountain-size load translating books, articles, working as tour-guide beyond my job of teacher. Now my little ones are already 18 and 14. But now I do not have my own life, because I always tried not to hurt my daughters again as their father did.

  • Ty B.

    I’m a single mom of a little boy I’m currently unemployed but looking and its hard,,, really hard, I’m doing the best that I can but it doesn’t seem good enough sometimes, I know I can’t give up because of my son. I just wish things will work out for myself and him really soon because we deserve it.

  • MMMMM

    Unless you make “too much” money to qualify for any of the programs so you struggle to make ends meet, repeatedly tell your children “no, we don’t have the money” and suck the life out of the meager savings account you do have, just trying to provide the basic necessities for your family.
    NO financial support from anyone and a job that barely covers what we need. I pray daily for help, or for some change, that will show me the light at the end of the tunnel.
