I know how you feel (sort of). I'm not single, but my fiance and I just moved here from Fort Worth at the end of Feb. We are expecting our newest arrival, a boy, in June. And I am currently unemployed myself. I have thought about watching some kids to make some extra money, since I can't get hired on anywhere. And I am totally alone most days, seeing that my fiance works a lot.
What part of North Austin do you live in? We live North East off of Ed Bluestein Blvd and Loyola. I know there are a few online groups in the area that you might want to check out. I'm on one with meetup.com and also on cafemom.com with another.
Like PP said, you can check with Catholic Charities to see if they could help you in any way possible. I would also look into some government assistance, like food benefits and TANF.
Please feel free to PM me anytime.
