General Assistance and such
Hey, I have been reading in this community for awhile. Not sure if I ever posted before though. I am 29, live in Napa california with my gf. Only I want to move out of here so badly I can taste it. Heres the catch. I am unemployed....tried everything and everywhere including going back to school last year to be a lab tech....I got depressed living here so now I might have to re do the certifcation tests for that. My gf's mom is retired but works so she has income. My gf works (well when she cant somehow become magicaly injured it seems) at the state hospital and makes about $2,000 a month herself. BUT I bring in $0 and have school loans WAY past due, a car in the shop that needs a new tranny, and 2 out standing speeding tickets totaly around $800. Oh and I not in love with the gf and am sinking into a deeper depression daily being here. Ok to much background info I know. But heres the thing. I am obviously a lesbian, so I am wondering a lot of things. A) Where and how do I apply to general assitance? B) What are the qualifications? C) Do I qualify for medicaid? D) What other resources might be out there to help me somehow get a leg up, or hell even a toe! E)Is it me or will I have to say I am a renter or something here or risk being turned down?
