You call your local county get a packet sent to you. If you still live at home with your parents that is fine. Have one of them help you fill out the paperwork. You will need your baby's social and birth certificate. If you don't have a birth certificate the crib card will do just fine. Apply for WIC. That program will give you vouchers for formula, milk, cereal, eggs, juice, ect. On your first wic appt. you will need to take that baby. they weigh the baby and measure the baby's head they will also draw your blood and the baby's blood to make sure your iron levels are ok. By them doing this will also help them to determine your wic needs. You will need to reapply every 6 months In order for you to qualify for daycare vouchers you must be in school or have a full time job( I recommend your staying in school). Try to find a part time job where you can work 15-20 hours a week. Try some place like walmart they give their employees a 10% discount on all items, this will save you money on diapers and wipes. I hope this information is helpful to you. I will pray for you and your baby.
Hi Ashley3, I was 17 when I had my first baby. I was still in school but I did drop out. I moved out of my Parents house when I was 21. I am getting my high school diploma online. I went down to my local county of job and family services got Medicaid, WIC and Daycare vouchers. You can do it there are plenty of resources for you.
I have several outstanding bills that needs to be paid. My largest right now is a $1000.00 daycare bill that must be paid by the end of June. I have outstanding medical bills from the last two childrent that I have had that needs to be paid. A 600.00 credit card bill. A 400.00 cable bill. I have taken out a loan on my 401k that got be paid up at the beginning of the year. My tax return bought my minivan that I desperatley needed to transport my large family around.
My goal is to be Finacially independent. In the next year I would like my credit score to go up 300 points. Yes I have horrible credit. I want to live life not watch it pass me by.
I am really on a very stict budget after what bills I can pay I am lucky sometimes to have money to go to the grocery store
If anyone knows what grants or loans I need to apply for please direct me to the link. If anyone is able to donate money I will make sure that I pay it forward to someone else in need.
I have been searching this site and I am trying to find out how to apply for grants or loans to help pay off all of my outstanding bills. I just want to be caught up on everything. I do in the near future intend on helping those in need but first i have to square myself away financially. Also if anyone has any great ideas for budgeting and saving money, stocks and bonds for cheap. please help!
I am 26 years old with 4 children. I am still recovering from the winter bills. My gas bill for one month was over $400.00 to heat my house. I have fallen behind on all my bills. I owe my daycare $1,000.00 dollars and I have to have that to them by the end of June or my kids can't go back until my balance is below $100.00. So now what am I suppose to do. I have to work to pay the bills that I can. If anyone can help or has any suggestions please let me know.
