Hi, Katie, and welcome.


I'm a bit unsure of how to offer you advice if you don't have any income.

Is there a way that when you move the place you move to is close to a job? Because that would reduce the need for a car, I think.

For now, as the PP asked, how are your bills being paid? I can make $20 online in a month from the small online things I do, but I don't think I could make more than that without actually getting an online job.

Is there anything within walking distance of you right now? Maybe there are opportunities within walking distance. Can you walk dogs? Maybe look after children? Work at the corner store? Help people with landscaping?

Hang in there Katie. When it rains it pours. You need to find SOME way to make income. Can you perhaps find a ride with a friend/neighbor into a more populated area to get a job and find a ride home? Or as someone else suggested - post flyers saying you will do housework, lawn work, etc.? You never know there might be an elderly person in the neighborhood that might need some help.


Sitting at home and stressing won't fix the situation. Keep your chin up!
