My name is Kayla and im 20 years old. I have a 17 month old and im a single mother. I work retail but my paychecks and hours change weekly. I am struggling with bills and to keep a roof over our head. I do get a little bit of government assistance such as WIC, foodstamps, and vendor for daycare. But i dont know what else to do. I have tried looking for other options for assistance but apparently since I live in the state of Missouri, there are not many sources. I have even looked for ways to get personal grants online for single mothers who need help with with bills etc., but you have to pay for a processing fee, or they just bring up pages for you to apply to go back to school. Im afraid I will get scammed. I cant afford to go back to college and im afraid if I do I wont have time for my son and I will be to stressed out to handle it. Does anyone have any ideas and ways to help? I would appreciate it any type of advice. Thanks!
