I lurk here alot but have never posted. My kids and I are in need of prayer. I will try to make a long story short. I have been living with my dad for about a year now. I am going to school full time and working part time. I was receiving child support up until a few months ago when x stopped paying.

I'll be praying about your situation. I understand about the costs of day care. It's way high. Can you go to your local DSS and see if they can assist with housing? There are several apartment complexes in our area that are government subsidized and they always have what is called Emergency Housing available. It's for anyone in a situation like you are. A friend of mine used it about 3 years ago when she split from her DH. The local sheriff's dept put her in contact with them thru DSS. Its always worth checking out. Are there any church's locally that you could go to and ask for assistance? Many of those can help provide housing as well. I'll be praying.

Your sister in Christ,
