I am trying to understand if my step-daughter qualifies for public assistance, I tried calling the health and family services, that didn't work. So does anyone know if she might qualif; Her situation is..1). Single Mother of 1 child 2. Veteran 3. has a job where she makes $10.00 an hour 4. Expenses..Rent 425 Month, Utilities roughly 125 a month, day care 480 a month....she was told that she doesn't qualify for anything...But if she quit her job she would...she doesn't want a hand out...she wants to work..oh yeah the baby's father lives in another state and pays nothing...any advise ??
You may want to check http://www.benefits.gov/ and http://jfs.ohio.gov/ocomm_root/1000Ourservice... to determine if she qualifies. I would think she would qualify for EBT if nothing else.
Has she checked with any veterans organizations?
If she is NOT receiving child support and it is court ordered, the state will help her. If it is not court ordered, she needs to go to court and get it.
Even if she does not qualify for government aid, there are many local church organizations that will help with food, diapers, etc. Job & Family Services should have a list.
