Getting back on my feet with federal assistance

I am a low-income single mom struggling to make a better life for myself and my little boy. We receive SNAP benefits. My son goes to a public elementary school. He gets a free lunch. I am working hard and trying to use these benefits as a stepping-stone and I am close but I have not yet been able to live independently without them. Without assistance like these, we would be struggling much more than we already are.
