I receive many emails from people wondering how they are suppose to make ends meet. There just doesn't seem to be enough money to pay the bills for many grandparents who are raising their grandchildren.
The little bit the government may provide is usually very little if any. There sometimes is more help for grandparents 60 and older. Sometimes there are programs through your local department on aging if you are old enough. It is worth checking out.
The Pantry of Broward, Inc. in Broward County, Florida ( http://www.thepantryofbroward.org/) helps low income seniors and grandparents raising grandchildren in their area. Where ever you might live when there is not enough money to make ends meet, check your local food pantry, your local area agency on aging, and ask around. Different churches might also know resources in your area.
If you know of resources in your area, send me an email so I can create a post to help give others ideas of where to look for help.
