I think Belinda is on the right track. You might speak to her in private and ask if she needs help navigating the "system". Most states and many non-profs have case workers that will do just that.

And Christine, you're right there are those that slip through the cracks for whatever asinine reason. In those cases, churches and other NPO can be of help.

I dont mean to come off as heartless, I just feel these women are taking MAJOR advantage of Magie. I also doubt very much that this woman went all weekend without eating. Offer places to go for help, like Belinda said. WIC, Food Stamps, Angel Food Ministries. I also know all about doing without. I lived without running water for my first 5 years, managing on other ways. Also in my earlier years I only had an extention cord as my electric. Yes, My life is better now, (thank you Jesus). But learning how to budget is key. Does this woman know about FMLA? (family leave) so when her son is sick, its an excused absense, but she could never get fired. Wishing you the best Magie.
