In addition to playing the mother role a single mom also how has to take on the father role as well.
Fortunately for those who are in this situation there is government housing available for single moms. With parenting already being a difficult task those who are doing it on their own need a little extra help so the government is ready to provide that necessary assistance.
Many single moms have no chance at a good education and often have a hard time finding suitable living conditions for them and their children.
There are other government programs available to assist single moms as well including WIC, TANIF, Grants, Food Stamps, and Medicaid. Each of these provides something different in order to help struggling moms get by. They give the necessary assistance in order to keep food, shelter, and insurance for them and their families.
WIC also known as Women, Children, & Infants provide pregnant women and parents with children under the age of five with vouchers to receive specific types of nutritious foods such as juice, cheese, cereal, milk, peanut butter, beans, and eggs. Also it will cover formula and baby food for those who still have infants.
The TANIF program (Department of Children and Families) provides single mothers with temporary financial assistance for a specific amount of time.
The parent must meet specific income criteria and may have to work a specified amount of hours in order to be approved.
The need for government housing for single mothers has grown over the last couple of decades.
Housing vouchers will allow single moms to move into apartments or homes either completely rent free or at a low cost depending on their income.
Food Stamps is another government program that is used to supply single moms with the ability to buy groceries each month. The amount they receive will depend on how many people are in their household and their monthly income.
Medicaid offers a variety of health care programs for single moms available to single moms and their children. Families that are approved will receive full coverage for their children. They will have full medical and dental with little to no co pay.
