I am a single mother that works 2 and a half jobs. I was laid off from two of them. I have no money. I can't look my son in the face because I know that in a matter of days I won't be able to pay the rent. I get $327 in snap the 4th of every month and that helps feed him but it's not enough. I already shop for food at the dollar tree. I've exhausted food pantries and all of the programs. I just do not know how i will keep a roof over my child's head and food in his mouth in April thru beyond and I am terrified. Please tell me I'm not alone.
I Don't Know how to Title This.
