Real Life Single Mom Help


Although the help is out there, not many people know about financial help for single mothers, especially the people who may need these grants the most. I didn’t realize how much help was available to me as a single mother until I met another single mom at a community group and she told me about the amount of help she had received in the first few years of being a single mother. She had received grants which had helped her pay bills and give her kids a good education. She explained to me how grants were much better than loans as they did not have to be paid back, meaning I wouldn’t have to worry about getting into debt and paying back a lot of interest. I received a small grant which helped me buy school supplies for my kids and pay bills when times were really hard. All single mothers should do some research and find out what help is available to them.

When I was pregnant a friend told me about single mother grants that I might be eligible for to help me keep my head above water financially. Although I didn’t intend to get pregnant I had always wanted a child and I didn’t have the heart to give up my baby. I didn’t realise that there is so much help available to single mothers such as myself. As well as standard grants to help me pay for bills, clothes and food for my son I also looked into the possibility of using a single mothers grant to set up my own business. Although I decided not to go ahead with my business idea at that point in time it was great to know that so much help was, and still is, available to me and others like me who may find themselves in a difficult situation. If you are a single mother or about to become one you should make sure you look into the grants to see if they can help you.

I already knew a little bit about single mother grants when I became a mom for the first time but I had no idea how helpful they would be to me and my daughter in the long term. I knew I could receive help paying bills but as I had always had a well paying job this wasn’t a necessity for me. However, I soon found out that a grant was available to single moms to help them start their own business. Since my daughter was born I had always knitted baby clothes for her. My friends had loved the clothes and asked me to knit some for their children as well. I was soon spending a lot of time making clothes and decided I could try and make some money out of it. The business grant helped me set up my own line of baby clothes and now I get to spend a lot more time at home with my daughter doing what I love.
