I'm in a very bad situation an was wondering who or where I could get help. I'm a 24yr old single mother of two little girls. 4 and 2. I was recently
In a 6 year relationship and it ended very badly. I'm enrolled at SHawnee and just finished my semester. I knew with Christmas coming up I had three weeks to get a job. I've put in applications everywhere and still haven't received a phone call. I have nothing for my little girls for Christmas and was wondering where I could get help? I've never used the system so I'm unfamiliar with it. I went to the welfare office and they said I only qualify for foodstamps. I can't buy gifts with those although it was a big help. I can't get any child support until we have out hearing the first of Feb. and he's not going to help me at all do to the fact i can't even reach him or get ahold of him. I don't know any churches I could get help from so I was wondering if any one had any suggestions? I'm a very good mother and I know I'm going to be called a bad one or a druggie for writing this forum. I can promise that isn't true and anyone that knows me would know that. I've always had pride and never asked anyone for anything. I just need a little bit of help right now and I would do anything to repay someone back. Please any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Could you sell some things on facebook scioto county yardsale, Craigslist? Anything laying around, old clothes, stuff that you don't need anymore.
They have some cute stuff at the dollar tree for kids that little. Sorry but I don't know anything about getting free stuff, this is just what I would do.

I'm not trying to kidd anyone or scam anyone. Me and the father separated a month ago. He worked while I went to school full time. I only had a few weeks left of school until I was done with the semester. I just finished up with it and put my applications in a few days before the semester was over. Hoping to get a job and have atleast one paycheck before Christmas but it didnt work that way because Ive received no phone calls yet. I had some school book that I paid over $400 for at the beginning of the semester and I knew I could sell them back and get a little bit of money. I went over there last week and they offered me $10 for the one. And told me the other two holds no value? But yet they charged me an arm and a leg for it. You can say or think what you want. You have your own opinion as well as everyone else. I'm sure alot Of people will read this post and think the same thing..because there's so many that try and use and take advantage of people. But yet the very few that need help get judged by their wrong doings. It's society..I know. And I knew I would deal with this before I wrote the post but it was my last resort so why not give it a try?

I think we'd simply go without before anything like that happened. Atleast then I could still look my girls in the face and smile holding my head high and just give them love. <33

No I haven't tried this. Guess it would be hard not having a camera. I don't even have Facebook due to all the drama. Do you have to have a page or can you just find it? Because even though I don't have pictures I could still post what I have an maybe get replys. And I'm not lookin for "free" stuff. Looking for any help. Or
Wondered if anyone knew of any places hiring for Christmas help..house cleaning..yard cleaning. Just whatever. At this point it doesn't matter just looking for something. Thanks for the suggestions!!:)
