You qualify for WIC and most likely for Emergency Food Stamps given your situation. There is also a program that will pay your utilities (electric/gas) bill one time if you have a crisis arise. I will ask a friend to see if I can get the name for you or maybe you can call your electric/gas company and ask them. I am curious to know who told you you needed more income for assistance? I am sorry I can't help more but those are the only services I am aware of.

Maybe your husband can get a second job for a while? Also, try to tighten up your budget anyway you can and see if there is anyway to reduce your expenses (used clothing stores, pack lunch for your husband, cut down on electric usage, etc) Even little bits add up.

You can contact me at [email protected] if you would like to talk or need more info on where to go to apply for the services I mentioned. May you and your family be blessed with the strength to stand strong together and make it through this rough time.

Peace and Blessings

Hey girls!!

Here is a little bit about it; It has been developed by some of the world's leading herbalists, and nutrionalists, and has had several clinical trials run on it! The outcome of 12 years of research and testing has brought this wonderful new product onto the market.
ViaViente, has shown in clinical trials to improve the overall quality of life and health in 6 different categories, including mental, physical and wellbeing as measured by specific health surveys. It has shown to reduce levels of pain, and stiffness, as measured by the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteroarthritis Index (WOMAC). No serious adverse events have been reported, and is easier to take than a multi- vitamin!!

You need to keep trying. Childrens and Families can be tough. You can apply for food stamps online. You should also apply for WIC now, it will help now, and help when baby is born. You should be able tot qualify because of how big your family is etc. If you husban works 40 hours a week at 9 an hour, thats only gross of360 per week, much less after taxes. With a family of 4 that is morn than enough for food stamps or WIC assistance. You will need ot very from your employer when yoru income ended etc.

If you have a computer, you need to go onto the web to and click on find an agency, and click on childrens and familys and follow the linkis for applying for assistance. If takes a while, but it is well worth it later on. YOu need to call WIC and talk to them about requirements to qualify etc. You should be fine.

Talk back to me if you need some help.

Hello, I am a stay at home mom of 2 children, our daughter is 23 mo. old (turns 2 on October 4) and our son is 5 1/2 mo. old. After I had our son I looked at daycares and they were just too expensive for two children, so I decided to stay home and I opened up a daycare. I watch a 6 mo. old, 14 mo. old , and a 3 yr. old along with my two, I make an extra $300 a week. Maybe if you could do that, I know that would help out alot. I put an ad on mamasource and also on website is where I got most responses from). Good Luck and I hope this helps. My email is [email protected] if you have any more questions.

I was laid off of my job 6 mo after having my first son and didn't know how to get by without my income. I did some budget planning and have been a stay at home mom now for the past 4 years and now have 3 children. I cut out any extras on my cable bill, downed my phone bill to just the basic (no call waiting,voicemail), I called all of my credit card companies and was able to lower interest on most of them just by requesting a lower interest rate. If in a bind to try to catch up or save up I know a lot of companies will let you send a car payment to the end of the loan time to let you "skip" a month. You can also try this if you have a mortgage. WIC is a great way to help with groceries. You will be able to have it on any child under age 5 and also for yourself while you are pregnant. I also was fortunate enough to have a great family who would help me out when I did get behind. My husband started a pet sitting business to help bring in extra income. This is a great thing because it doesn't take away much family time. Good luck to you. It's a hard time but you are lucky that you have a family and this will one day pass and work itself out.
