My daughter Erinn, was in between jobs and just couldn't seened to get hired anywhere. So, this seemed to be a good time to go back to school to get an education to get a better job. She has pell grants to cover her classes, but not much else. Unfortunately, this seems to make finding a job even harder, especially one she could work around school. She is taking enough credits to be a full-time student. She is doing very well in her classes, and injoying it emmensely. I am very happy for her.
The problem is this. She has living expenses. I don't mind covering some cost and have been doing so since she started, but she has used up all the assistance she could find and I just can't cover everything. Between power/water, phone (no long distance and I already cover her cell) and internet (for her school), gas and car insurance, and cheep rent, we figure it's costing me about $650 a month. I just don't have it and it's putting me in financial straights. She can't move back in with us, because her and my hubby just don't get along well and it's not good for either one of them.
Even thou she is still looking for work, I believe she has another year of school and I know it can be hard to do full-time courses and work in this rural community. The college is about 30 miles away, along with any chance of employment. I'm also afraid (and so is she) that her car wont last much longer. It likes to stall regularly and the clutch is going out. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for considering her.
