Financial and Employment Resources

  • Financial Resources for Single Moms:

    Create a Budget – Great Budgeting Tool for Single Moms – a resource for walking you through the steps to create your money plan.  A Financial tool so simple, you’ll actually use it :-)
    National Foundation for Credit Counseling – If you are having problems repaying debt, this is an excellent resource.  Bankruptcy should be a last resort, see options here.
    Government Benefits – Take survey regarding your present situations to gain recommendations on government benefits you may be eligible for. (This is very eye-opening…there are so many programs available, that it’s likely you have no idea what is out there that you just may qualify for.  Not all benefits are based on income or a lack thereof!)
