I am single with 4 children....two 19 yrs old, a 7 yr. old and a 3 yr. old. Five months ago the man who promised me a good life told me that I don't think we were meant to me. He feels that we no longer get along. He encouraged me to move to GA with the promise that he will move in 1 yr. Well after 2 1/2 he still hasn't moved and finally told me it's over. I never made an effort to look for work but I started taking online classes. I received my Associate degree in January and started working on my Bachelors.
Now I am stuck with no money and the economy is so bad I cannot find a job so I don't know what to do now.

MY STORY: It was September 27, 2012 i gave birth to a baby👣boy👶name Deryion Ke'sean Hartsfield it was the most happiest😍😘day of my life and i knew that day forward my life would change but I wasn't prepared for or didn't think things would be this way only god knows. I'm a single mother👩of a 2yr son👶and he's my only child i had him at 22yrs old and his father been in jail since September 2012 and dont get out until 2017 so I've been doin this by myself for going on 3yrs and yea its very hard and sometimes very stressful😔because i have so much to do and try to get done by myself without a car🚘and dependable people to help me try and get things done and get them done on time🕝, sometimes i want to give up😡on everything until i look at my son👶and realize that im living for him and i cant just give up i want to make my son happy😃by doin exactly what i told him i would do. Im goin to get us that house🏡so he would have his own room with all his toys 🚂🚛🚲and stuff that way we won't have to keep moving place to place, but i just pray🙏and talk to God because i know he's listening👂if nobody else will and I really dont just have no one i can just talk to about anything and everything so i talk to god. Its hard for me to find a job and keep one because i dont have no one to really watch deryion but now that i got him in daycare im looking for a good job thay pay💰💰💰good that way we can get us a place to stay🏡and a nice car🚙i know that would make my baby so happy😃I can see the look 😮on his face now😀😍and i dont blame him because he desrerves every bit of it and more. Its ridiculous that my sons father his mother dont help or call📱or nothing its like deryion dont even exist to them at all and i cant stand when people take things out on kids or put their kids in bullshit when that shouldn't be how it goes to parents/adults should be able to take like civilize people to make their kid have a happy😃life simple as that, the problems the parents have with each other shouldnt affect you kids👫and thats most people problem today and not only us women the men too because i done wittnessed it myself and it was crazy, but some people have to learn the hard way. This year 2015🎆is when im going to make it happen🙏👍i dont care what i have to do or how hard i have to work im going to get me and deryion👩👦life how it should of been along time ago you just watch and see👀ima sho the world🌏you can do anything you put your mind into and have faith🙏.

I read all of your posts. I am in the same boat. Have a 4 month old a 6 year old, no job, live with my parents. I am fortunate in the sense that my parents don't mind financially helping me right now. But I do get government assistance. I went and filed for food stamps and Medi-CAL(insurance). I know there are other goverment programs that can help with housing costs(section 8) and childcare costs, etc. There are also private organizations that help single mothers with the financial and other burdens that come from being a single mother. I don't know Organizations out of Los Angeles as that is where I live but contact your local DPSS(Department of Public Social Services). At least you can get some type of help until you get a job and get on your feet. Good Luck.
