I'm just registered for school as a part time student after being out of school for 30 years. have a daughter that just turned 17. I've been a single mother for 17 years. I lost my job about 4 years ago and in turn lost my house and everything else. I haven't been able to find full time employment due to my age. I'm 51. I'm working part time at a grocery store. this is what I have after working in a law firm for 30 years.I got in school and pass the entrance exam which this is been the scariest thing I've ever done.I receive the Pell Grant but it's prorated because I can only take two classes because I have to work part time. I have no other income and I cannot meet all the financial expenses and obligations. I don't even have enough money for the books then I need to start school. I'm so lost at this point I really don't know what to do.
