I am searching right now for assistance programs for a friend of mine. she is a single mother, only 20 yrs old, the babys father is a dead beat who is not in the picture and not paying any type of support. her son was born 2 1/2 months premature via emergency csection because he was having in-uterine strokes. he was only 2 lbs and its a miracle he's even alive. Due to the strokes he has some brain damage, the extent to which can not be determined fully till he is older ( he's 11 months old now and only 12 lbs) he is 100% blind, and has recently been diagnosed with CP. they also believe he may be epileptic as well but needs further testing to confirm the diagnosis. Due to the newly realized severity of his disabilities his doctors have recommended round the clock 24 hour care for him. My friend has to quit her job to care for him. the problem is if she quits her job she can not support them and they have no support network or family to rely on. She is getting a disability check for him but it is only 600 a month, she also receives food stamps, WIC and medicare, however 600 a month is simply not enough to keep him in diapers, and keep the bills paid. I want so desperately to help her but just don't know what to do. I am trying to find ANY programs out there that can help for a single parent of a disabled child who requires constant care. If anyone knows of any programs that I can refer her to apply for PLEASE email me the info for the program.

Hi my name is Grecia. I am a mother of two ages 3,and 11 months. Its been 6 months since my husband and i separated and im currently trying to file for divorse but its really hard. My 3 year old was diagnosed with autism this year and with her schedual and my 11month old I had to quit my job to be with them. She also has behavior which make it even more difficult to go out in public. My parents are helping me by letting me stay with them till I get back on my feet but the inviroment in which they live in makes it hard for my 3 year old to get used to. I WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE ANY HELP THAT IS ABELABEL FOR ME OR MY GIRLS.

Hi Terri

Why aren't you recieving child support ? I hope that your ex isn't one of the deadbeat fathers. There are laws and lawyers that will help you fight this for free ,as well as organizations that will help. I am sorry that I can't help directly right now , but if you check the single mom pages you should be able to find some of these organizations.

Please Help Me....I am a single mom...a registered nurse and in financial crisis b/c of going through a divorce. I am a home care nurse taking care of a veteran with Advanced Lou Gehrigs disease. I no longer have a car to get to him. B/c of what is going on with my divorce I have bad credit and no money to put down on a car. I need to continue to care for my patient. He is on a ventilator..and I am always struggling with his insurance companies to get the supplies he needs. This is a wonderful family and it is sad to say that other nurses will not advocate and write to the insurance companies and help the family with all these aspects of care. There has to be someone who has a reliable car that perhaps has just been sitting in their driveway. This is just the tip of the iceberg. My patient served on the USS John Paul Jones for several years..he is only 70y/o on a ventaltor and feeding tube. He needs agressive chest therapy to prevent pnumonia and beside the fact that the insurance company refuses to pay for necessary respiratory supplies I constantly am fighting for them as well as the fact..that as unfortunate has it seems the other nurses tend not to give him the aggressive chest therapy I do and the number one cause of death with this disease is Pnumonia. Please help us.

Hi needhelp12 Does your son qualify for student loans ? Does he qualify for any scholarships ? Is it possible for your son to work for a semester , then go back the next semester after helping you pay off the bills ? How about working part time and going to school part time? Just some ideas . I personally don't know much about student loans , but my daughter has a great site that she has used ,and I will ask her to look it up. I will get back to you. soulight

I am a single parent trying to send my son to college. I would like to borrow some money to pay off my son's tution from last semester so he can go back to school. I have few bills that have got me in hole and if I could pay them off I can get back on my feet. If anyone there know of a company that help me people with poor credit please let me know. I have not all ways had bad credit . I got behind on my bills when I had to help my mother with her medical bills. Even if I can not find any help I will find a way to send my son back to school.

I think what you are doing on your web pages are great. With so many web sites out there that will take advantage of single mothers trying to improve their children lives, it is great to find one that is only out to help and inform. You helped me out more than you know just by your kindness and going out of your way to help others.
