Wondering if there was any help out there somewhere for single mothers that does not receive state assistance?!?!? Heard that maybe some churches or town communities may help with this. I don't know where to begin! I am a single mother of 5 children and hold a 40 hr/wk job please no negative comments! Looking for some help!

Hi there, you could try the Salvation Army, Mountain Mission, and Union Mission. They might be able to help but if not, I believe they have a referral sheet they can give you listing churches and so forth. Good luck and happy holidays.

Here's a Christmas tip I'll give you for free:

Stop having kids you can't afford. It's not fair to them.

how do you know the op wasn't able to afford the kids in the past? People get down on their luck you know. I pray it won't happen to you but if it does, watch out for karma.

Having kids isn't like buying a car.

Well no, but who said it was? My point is, bad things happen to good people sometimes. Situations change and not always for the better. Also, the charities that help out are funded for the most part by private donations with that in mind. The donors know the money is going to people who are down on their luck. They don't mind or they wouldn't donate, right? I don't understand why you have to take that stance and try to make the op feel badly about asking. If you disapprove of things like that, just don't donate and keep quiet. No disrespect, but I kinda doubt that you give up much money in that manner anyway.

I know very few people who can afford to raise 5 kids without others (govt or private) helping to support them. And guess who gets to foot the bill most of the time... people who decided NOT to burden society with a bunch of kids. That's right. Think about it. I pay a higher tax rate because I decided not to have children. Now, don't act like I'm in the wrong for pointing this out. If you're in the same boat as me, you would be mad too... unless you're a moron. If you're one of these people who have kids you can't afford, then you are just another pos trying to justify it even though you have no argument.

No, I'm actually in the same boat as you: no kids. And yes, there are people who have 5 kids they can't afford without assistance. You are right about that. There are also people who have 5 kids that they can afford without assistance. My point is, we don't know the op's situation. There is another group too, people who have 5 kids they could afford but due to circumstances beyond their control, they can no longer afford them without assistance. I'm not "mad" about any of it. My tax dollars go regardless, and really, I would rather have my money go to help a person who is struggling than to fund a war or for the so-called pork that the government is so good about funding with our tax dollars. I can tell you are an intelligent, thoughtful person and you are certainly entitled to your opinion. I just see no reason to make a person feel badly for asking for help that comes from private donations that exist specifically for that purpose. The op said she/he works 40 hours per week and gets no public assistance. I respect that and see nothing at all wrong with helping this person.

I was just browsing through and saw your message. It is nice seeing a positive comment. Personally I am a single mother of two children. Work a full time job, pay my taxes and for myself and my children to have medical insurance. This year has been especially difficult and it has been stressful with the season approaching realizing financially it is a difficult time. Your comment was positive and lifting. I'd like to say thank you for that! Happy Holidays to you.

Hell I'm single, raised kids and work 40 hours a week and can't afford things. Messed up economy period, point blank. It's a shame that working a 40 hour a week job and still at or below poverty level. Good luck to the mother of five.
