I dont mind signing. But its not the governments job to take care of our children. I was a single parent and even when I was married it seemed as if I was a single parent. But welfare is supposed to be temporary. The elderly/disabled really need section. Honestly we had a choice to have children and how we were going to support them. Yes even thru a divorce been there done that. I am thankful for what the government allows us to apply for and receive when u absolutely need it.

There are so many people suffering from homelessness and low income. THe section 8 list is to long. If social servies can pay for a homeless family to temp stay at a hotel or pay their shelter expanses then there is money available to help families not to be homeless.

I agree completely! I was on the wait list for Section 8 Housing in the county I just moved from and was disqualified as I missed turning in documents 1 day late. Now the new county I'm in Section 8 will be opened the first week in October so hopefully I'll be able to get on it. It's crazy all the hoops we have to jump through just to get a place to live. But if I go to a local homeless shelter and live there for 8 weeks they'll find me a place to live. How does this make sense? I want to keep my kids out of homeless shelters.

I feel for the homeless and believe that it is unfair that they have become homeless, but I also would think that with all the family that we as a whole have why doesn't family step up and help when the gov't won't? I have never been homeless but I have been without a job for 5mos with a brand new car, mortgage, small children and other bills to pay and I was unable to get any assistance.

I feel for the homeless and believe that it is unfair that they have become homeless, but I also would think that with all the family that we as a whole have why doesn't family step up and help when the gov't won't? I have never been homeless but I have been without a job for 5mos with a brand new car, mortgage, small children and other bills to pay and I was unable to get any assistance. I job searched for about 2 mos with no openings anywhere. I had to re-group (rec'd assistance from my child), so I took a vacation and when I got back I started my job search all over again and landed on a job ( as the accountant) that I am at still til this day (8 yrs later).
I agree also that a shelter isn't a place that a mother would want her child to be in and will try their hardest to stay away from that option. I will sign the petition but I also hope that things get better one day.

You are so right my friend, that is what this country needs is more aid for those in dire need of assisstance,rather than squirreling their money in some time capsule. when the time has long ago come.

Channel 12 New know about my situation and the community access know, and 311 know about the situation. when they came and drill a hole in the wall to see what i was tell them, they could not believe it. they gave me temp to put on the wall and it read 80 degree but it never that in my home unless i put on both the stove and the central heating. so that why i be working so much because i don't wanted to die in my apt at this young age.

Maybe they should rely on jobs instead of the government, that's the real problem with this country, I don't feel bad

You don't feel bad for homeless children or children being taken from a loving parent? I think "the real problem" is the closed minded people who do not look at the WHOLE situation and pass judgement. One does not choose to be born into poverty. Maybe try to feel compassion for those less fortunate.

Leanne......maybe one day you will know what it is like to be unemployed, homeless. Pray that it never happens to you....because with your attitude no one will want to help you! Praying that God heals your unsympathetic, foolish heart!

Dont judge quickly because the same way you judge is the way you will be judged. We will all meet the same maker and unless you know each single mothers situation or circumstance, you should try to build up not tear down those who are already facing adverse circumstances. What you Judge will end up being your destiny.
