Can't imagine

We are going through some tough times right now. My husband is out of work. It took me 7 months to find a job, I took an on call job. The child care in the town I live in would be half of my income when all of the kids would not be in school. If I paid for insurance, rent, a vehicle payment, utilities, the necessities and basics we would have under 100 dollars to feed a family of five sometimes six. I make $19 dollars an hour. It would be impossible for me to be a single parent making minimum wage here. I have no idea how some people are able to make it. More than likely they have more than one job. I pray so hard for them. What kind of life is that? They can not be there for their children. It is so very sad and please help fix this. I know there are many social programs to help, but most people just want to work for a living wage and not need to have to utilize these programs. The stigma and she of having to ask for help when all you want to do is work normal hours to be able to provide for your family. Please help, please help all the people to be able to do this, not through hand outs, but a hand up. Thank you for your time and God Bless everyone fighting for this.
