    this is the link for the place i mentioned in riverside NJ ( which is in burlington county - probably closer to philly then berlin williamstown area if the correct bridge is used )


    i am sure they would be able to expediate anything that had to be done to change you to NJ benefits .
    or maybe they know of a similar place in philly area

    they give you a place to live a job, job training ,childcare -
    you do shared household chores etc i am sure there are rules
    etc but really following some rules vs a safe home a healthy child should be a no brainer,

    this would be a amazing chance for you to get your life in better order - possibly get some new job skills
    to keep your baby and be in a safe place .

    thats alot in return for a little waiting for a change in benefits

    the likelihood your BF and you are going to do this together alone is not good - for some unknown reason you are both jobless and homeless 3 months into the pregnancy ,

    you need to think of YOU and your baby first .

    there is a 1800 # you can call
    at least call and see what is there if its not for you they may be able to direct you in other ways

    my teens youth group does a baby shower fundraiser each year and donate to this center . a friend told me about it she use to volunteer there.

    you may make some nice friends there also - woman in similar situations you can identity with -and confide in ,

    please look into it at least as a possible option

    Thanks Debbi for sending Ashley the information.

    Ashley~ Please make this call and get your life straightened out for you and your baby. I believe you can do these things and you can raise your own child if you devote yourself to working and becoming a responsible adult. Don't depend on your bf. However, once the baby is born, demand he pay child support.

    You're going to need as much help as you can get, but your goal should be getting a job, having a safe little home for the two of you and ultimately, providing for your own family without assistance from the government. You can do this with hard work and you will feel so proud of yourself!

    ash is right,,a lot of the comments are mean and people dont pay attention..

    she has been trying to get work for quite a while and has gotten hired but was let go...thru no fault of her own, it does happen..this economy is very difficult..

    her boyfriend is in the picture and if this work out he may become her husband...just because u have a husband doent not mean he is supportive..

    she is looking at her options with her boyfirend..trying to find a place to live and find employment..im looking for work myself and not having much luck..

    she has a plan of action(has had several) but just because u have a plan of action doent mean this will work out...just because u plan for something doent mean it will work out the way u want..

    and HELL NO she should not even consider giving up that baby...she can make it..it will be hard..my bff went thru the same thing25 yrs ago and came out justfine..she also didnt have a dime to her name or a place of her own and ended up with her parents(who were going thru a divorce)..

    just because a couple is married and has money doent not mean they will be better parents than anyone else..i grew up with friends with parents like that and would not trade places with them for anything,.

    oh and she had real problems with her dad because hesa bit of a jerk...my dad would have thrown that chick out on her butt if she decided she didnt want his kids in his home...

    I think in times like these when a person can't take care of themselves, they have to consider all possibilities. Even if one possibility is giving a baby up. Whatever makes their life and the babies life the best it can be, should be considered. Advice shouldn't be asked for if it will NEVER be taken. On the other hand if you never ask for advice, you'll never get it.

    Also if we're not allowed to give realistic advice OR our opinions, what's the point of posting at all? All advice and suggestions need to be taken in account, even the ones you might not want to hear.

    ^^ what she said ^^ If all you want to hear is sweetness and light without controversy - do not ask for advice. People who CARE about you will tell you what you NEED to hear, not what you WANT to hear.

    What part of PA are you looking in? I know someone who just had a baby and is on Welfare and just got housing after only waiting a couple of months. She is North of Allentown.

    Ashley,

    Sorry you feel this way. Your habit of only hearing what you want to hear will not serve you well in life - please reconsider. If only for the sake of the baby.

    BTW Ashley - your welcome ....

    Nothing like going out of your way to find info to help a basic stranger and having what you did offer- basically ignored .

    Kind of expected it though .

    Lesson learned for me .
