Dont knwo what to do :(
Hey GLP friends, I have a question for those in the south east USA, I dont know who to ask for help, my friend just lost her house and had to move in with us :) Her sons father stopped paying child support, and I dont have enough to do christmas for her boys, I have enough to do my own kids, and I don't have any sort of government assistance, so Im not even sure where to start looking for help for her, I called salvation army but their sign up days are over....

Hubby and I are coordinators for Toys for Tots organization here in central FL. LOTS of kids will have Christmas that would not have anything otherwise.

I suggest you look up that organization and see where the nearest one to your area is.

They have a website, just click on your state, then city/county.

Re: Dont knwo what to do :(
they are 6 and 2, the years Christmas is a BIG holiday ya know? No way I would enjoy my christmas or my kids christmas If there wasn't plenty for them too, I don't want to cut down my own kids gifts cause I do live on a budget and buy 3 presents per child each year, 1 thing they want, 1 thing they need, and 1 suprise, or santa gift :) So there isnt much to share, plus I dont think teen gifts would hold much appeal to a toddler :)

I just went to the site and checked, thank you that was a great idea, unfortunately it said our county is not covered by toys for tots. My house is in a super rural area so we dont have many help organizations out here, like 87% of our land is agricultural and we have the lowest per capita income in our part of Florida.

Re: Dont knwo what to do :(
the fact that I live 25 miles from any town and she doesnt have a car is really hurting her Job search. I won 2 vehicles but My husband and I have to use them for work and appointments, and its somewhat of a challenge finding a job that lets her work our days off, which IS 4 days a week cause hubby and I have different days off :)

Re: Dont knwo what to do :(
Take her to Social Services. I'm guessing uf you look up your town and the words social services, you'll have the number in seconds.

Tomorrow is Friday, call them as soon as their office opens, tell them what's up and/or make an appointment.

She can get t emporary assistance (and everyone, just STFU about food stamps). When people need help they should get help.

It might take a few days but since there's a child involved, she'll probably qualify for some cash assistance too.

You'd probably qualify for food stamps too, OP.


And this is also a good opportunity to re-evaluate what Christmas is supposed to be.

It's not about buying/receiving gifts.

Re: Dont knwo what to do :(
Is there a church group? I've heard that Catholic Charities will help folks even if they're not Catholic.

Worst case scenario, see if you can find anything at a thrift store that looks fairly new and can be cleaned up ... I had to do that one year when my ex quit paying child support.

After the holidays have your friend get in touch with Child Support Enforcement, it takes months but they will help get her the support she is legally entitled to.

Re: Dont knwo what to do :(
I had her apply for FS online, she hasnt heard back yet, she has an open case with FL child support, they wont do anything till he hasnt paid anything in 60 days, and he made a 30$ payment in the last week of Oct. If /when he files his tax return there is an intercept to get her some of the 14K he owes her now total. Christmas is about family and togetherness but a 6 year old should have something from Santa no matter what, I will defently go look at the thrift stores for something awesome, ya never know :)

I dont think we need FS for us, we own our home and our vehicles free and clear and dont consume a lot of things, we are pretty comfortable at living within our means, and I can live on a tight budget its just this was unexpected and I didn't have any wiggle room this month, after making sure my own kids got their 3 presents :)

Many churches will help out families in need. You could check the churches in your area. Also, you could try calling 211 and asking if they have a contact information for help with this or for other needs you or your friend may have.

Defiantly check churches. If you attend one speak with your pastor or priest. He can help.

Talk to God. He will help. Bless you and your family.

I hope you and your extended family have a great Christmas.

It's not a always about the presents.

You sound like a really great person!!!!

Tell your kids the problem and ask them to make some presents for the other kids. Plus your own children are probably great like you, so you could ask them if one of the presents you would have given them, could be one they choose to give to one of the other little kids.

You are the spirit of christmas. Thanks OP!

Churches? Check with your local DHS office.

Check craigslist also, you never know what you might find.

You could contact some TV stations & let them know of your plight, never know what might come your way.

Bless you for helping. Don't underestimate what fun you can buy for a young child at the dollar tree. Ten bucks spent carefully there can gt a young child quite a bit of fun and entertainment. Books, art supplies, frisbee, etc. good luck and happy holidays!
