Honestly if you didn't qualify it could be because your living with your mom. Unfortunately with lack of family support you may want to consider going into a shelte. That will give you benefits and it will help get you housing quicker.
I can relate to your situation I had my first child at 19 and my family and I never truely recovered. I made it though and you will too best of luck.

sara is right there is government programs that will help you get through it. Just do a little computer research on it first and start making ur steps from there. Trust me u will run into somebody that will help u support your little girl and yourself. and i advice you no matter what your going through stay in school i know it takes a while but trust me education will help you succeed in life. so if your in school please stay in there no matter how hard things get. things happen for a reason so if your mom and dad want help you yeah it's time to step out on your own you can do it and if you need me to help research and give u some programs im here for you also

Well I think that's a good start to end it with him and only let him see the baby if he can make commitments like holding down a job and getting a place to live .... For your dad that's really sad I get that he would be upset but he should have supported your decision and tried to get over it and helped it sounds like you need to move out of your mums place and try stand on your own feet and with doing this you will get your self esteem up in knowing you can do this on your own and you will be a great mum you just need to believe in your self first can you get any help with like govement payments or help with housing were your from ? ( I'm from Australia ) do you know if your having a boy or a girl?
