I have a few questions, we recently have become no income family...ugggg I am practically a single mama...DP is Mexican and was deported. I've been a SAHM for the past 5 years.... I'm expecting baby #4 in 6 weeks. Anyways, children are on medicaid and i would like to get foodstamps and medicaid for me. I'm seeing a midwife so i dont really need health insurance....but just incase it would be nice to have. What do they look at inorder to get foodstamps? We have a large house that we are having a hard time paying for right now. Plus our SUV might disqualify me. Would they look at that and say no because of the car and house value? I've tried to get foodstamps and medicaid before and they looked at the value of our car and said no. Like they want me to go sell my only form of transportation to buy food. Our SUV is paid for...i would never want to sell it. I'm not sure when we could ever afford to buy another car with out payments. KWIM? I want to look into wic....except all the baby check up's they want to do on baby. I know i can get over that for assistance. But we really need help with food right now or anything at that. I tried to sell the house and it was on the market for over a year....so it's not like i havent tried to lesson our expenses.
