I am the youngest of 7 kids; 3 brothers, 3 sisters - and me. My mom and dad divorced when I was young so it became very tough to make ends meet. My mom raised us kids as a single mother. I couldn't imagine how difficult that was for her.
Without my benefits, I would be hopeless, I rely on the public housing and food assistance they might want to take away.
I’d like to get to a place where I no longer depend on public assistance - that’s the goal
I think it will take a while for things to get better. I believe we could do more to make the changes necessary to help people - I am hopeful things will change.
