A Single Mom's Journey to Financial Stability Through Government Programs
Maria has a child named Felicia with her boyfriend David. David works on weekdays at Ford to support his family. Maria works at Sam's Club on weekends to bring in extra money. One day David finds out that Felicia is not his child so he leaves Maria and Felicia because he hates cheaters. Maria cannot support Felicia and herself with her minimum wage weekend job so she turns to Welfare to help get the bills paid.
WAIT! You can'y leave! I NEED YOU!!
I can't believe after two years I found out Felicia is not mine!
I can't support Felicia and myself off of this stupid minimum wage weekend job! I just got an email saying the water bill is going to be shut off today for non-payment!
Wow! I just found out that there is a government program for families in need that gives them temporary financial support called welfare. I qualify for welfare because i barely make any money and I have a two year old child who goes to school.
fThanks to Welfare (TANF) my water is turned back on and i was able to pay a baby sitter to watch Felicia while I work so I can pick up more hours.
I just applied for a couple of jobs that will pay me more than what i need to support me and my child. I can't believe David would do this to me though i mean we are both 35, it just seems so immature and heartless to do that to a child!
I got the first job i applied for and the pay is GREAT! I can FINALLY stop depending on Welfare to support me and my daughter.
