Help Input needed (long time lurker, first post)
Ive been a long time lurker on this site and would like to thank the site owner and mods for their hard work! GLP once you learn how to read between the lines I have often times found to be a first warning for current events.

So here is what I need your help with guys

I have a friend I have not spoken to in a long while. It's has been ten years since I last saw or heard from her. She got in touch with me yesterday asking for help. She now has 3 children who's father is just gone. She had some medical problems a year ago and became hooked on pain killers which led to harder drugs. Currently she is going to the clinic for meth treatment. She has abused state funding in the past so can not currently get benefits. Her and her children are about to be evicted. While with her yesterday she told me she probably going to sell her self to pay her bills.

I spent hours on the phone today calling churches and the states help line trying to help her find 300 bucks for rent. If I had the money I'd just give it to her!

I need ideas as to how I can help her. Who I can contact? Any ideas would help. I do not want her to get wrapped up in prostitution and have her children suffer. Help brain storm.

Thank You

Take her in. That's what Jesus would do. You call yourself a Christian don't you? Don't just jawbone. Now is your moment, Rise to the occasion?

Are you gonna just let those poor babies starve?

Remember in the scriptures where the rich man asked Jesus what he'd have to do to achieve eternal?
Jesus told him to sell all his wealth and give to charity, then take up and follow him.

The moral is charity.

Re: Help Input needed (long time lurker, first post)
This is kind of the blind leading the blind. Sadly enough I had the luxury of moving back in with my parents otherwise I would take her in. I know my parents would not go for her and he children moving in and im thankful they have even allowed me. The reason why I have moved back home is I work my ass off to take care of my own two children.

Second I'm not a practicing church goer. I'm just seeking every avenue I can to help this girl and her children.

I have even offered to have her land lord to barter with me labor in place of her rent.

I'm not asking GLP for hand outs just ideas or even what else I can say to her to prevent her from going down this road. I will be pawning some of my stuff to help her tomorrow and will be making sure it goes straight to the land lord. I'm by no means a rich man.

I also do not want to enable her though since there is an addiction.

Just asking for everyone to collectively help me to think through this.

Have to agree. Be very careful or you will wind up in trouble also.

Most people would have already turned their backs on her.
I don't know what it's like there, but I think the welfare system here wouldn't just shut her out. I think they have hardship emergency clauses here.

If she really is about to sell herself then perhaps she's not fit to have children in her care.
How about getting funds from the father of the children

Re: Help Input needed (long time lurker, first post)
Trust me I'm being very careful. Im starting to think she called me to proposition me and did not expect my response. Sad thing is she is a amazing looking girl. When she through it out there I shot it down immediately and told her if she did that with anyone it would only cause her more problems down the road. I would actually take her in as I said earlier and even date her but I'm not capable of that when i could not put a roof over her children's heads. Besides that, I'm sorry to say I would not take a chance with my children around a recovering addict.

I have also though about one of the responses about her children. If I ever feel they are in danger I will have to make a hard phone call. She is a great mother and is doing all she can though.

She lives in PA and they are denying her benefits until she files for child support. Once she does that she will be back on track with state support but it will take sometime.

This is also very hard for me because I'm very much against anyone using state welfare but I can see now there are cases where it is needed. I spent hours on the phone with her today making phone calls and it was just shoot down after shoot down.

MIGHT do some slightly illegal 'day care center' at her apartment, IF the land lord doesn't find out. That way, stay home watch her own and a few others for money !

If she was not on methadone I would recommend that to her but right now she basically goes to the clinic after she drops the kids off at school.

I don't know this is so upsetting to watch!

Thank You everyone for your responses I really appreciate them keep then coming.
