Re: Any ideas welcome
Do you guys qualify for any state assistance? I know in wisconsin
for a family of 4 you would get free health insurance with no co-
pays or discounted if you make slightly too much and $600 a month
for food. If your income is really low they also give you rental
assistance and childcare assistance.
The subsidize most of your
child care for you so you can come out ahead. They also have energy
assistance during the winter months. Also, have you checked out the
do a google search for hud housing. they help people buy
homes, you’d have to pick homes from their site (i believe, it has
to qualify) and they give you special financing for it and i believe
you can use rental assistance checks to help pay for your mortgage.
really try to reach out and see what your state offers as most of it
is the same, but it varies. wic also helps and you can make more
money than these other programs and still qualify for it.
little bit helps and don’t be afraid to ask for help until you guys
can get back on your feet and are more settled.
i agree with the previous poster about the mold. we lived in a
crappy place downtown 3 1/2 years ago and my son was 11 months old
when we moved there. A few weeks after we moved my son had wheezing
in his left long and he had it the whole time we moved there.
usually only wheezed when he had a cold, but it was constant then
and he was on asthma medication and they started testing him for
asthma and then we moved to a suburb that had newer buildings and it
disappeared a week after we moved! I believe it was the mold. Our
last apartment was horrible.
He’s had no problems since living
there. Good luck!
