I a single mother of 4 children. I work 2 jobs and just can not get ahead. I refuse to give up and I keep going even stronger but I'm scared that with just getting a house I'm not going to be able to keep it. I'm at a dead end. If you're not ''homeless'' in my neighborhood you get no help what so ever. Can anyone please send me in the right direction

What do you mean by your neighborhood? if you live in the US, government housing assistance has pretty clear criteria. Have you applied for child support for your kids? If not, do it. It is your kids entitlement to be supported by both parents. Apple for any sort of assistance you can: child care, food stamps, housing, insurance and welfare. Those programs are there to help people get back up on their feet. If you don't qualify; you can usually visit a food pantry once a month, that would cut your grocery bill down. The Salvation Army can sometimes help with utilities and rent. If you belong to a church, ask for help.
