Careers for single moms
A very good friend of mine is kind of stuck in her situation. She is a young single mother of 3. She gets a little support from the father of the children but he is going to be going to jail soon as he has warrants out, and he really does not make much money as it is. She is living at home with her mom but it is a full house currently and all of her family is struggling with money so no one can really help her out. She is struggling for independence as she does not want to have to end up living with her old boyfriend because there is no where else to go just for ease purposes, you know? I am worried about that too. She is an AMAZING person and SUCH a hard worker. She is currently unemployed as she JUST had her 3rd child but she will need to start working again soon. As of right now she has WIC to help her out with food and she is currently living rent free with her mom. Does anyone have any ideas as to what she may be able to do career-wise? She really wants to go to school and I think as a minority (she's black), unwed, mother of 3 she should be able to find some sort of assistance. I have also heard of possible nursing programs that will help pay for your schooling so long as you work for them. I am really not too sure though. I have given her the option to come live with me and the boy in the Tampa Bay/St Petersburg area as there are much more job opportunities here over where she is currently living. Its tough finding a job here also, but still more opportunities than where she is. So if there is some opportunity here for her then we will move her on up and help her through it. Any ideas would be appreciated. If anyone from this area has any ideas that would be great. If anyone knows of any other assistance she could be getting if she moved in with us that would also be great as we are struggling ourselves and don't have much to offer. Things like daycare and such for a woman in her situation. Thanks you guys!
