If these are not in your area, call them anyway. I am sure they can point you in the right direction. (12/01/2005)

Is your son on SSI? Your disabled child would receive almost $600/month to meet his needs and medicaid to cover his medical needs. If not, you need to apply for his social security benefits at the local social security administration office. You can apply for Food-Stamps, Medicaid, and TANF (cash assistance) at your local welfare office.
Your local HUD/housing authority can help with your shelter cost. Your local United Way is a clearing house for all the charitable agencies in your area and can provide you a list of addresses and phone numbers for all of those agencies. Most communities have daycare services for children with disabilities that is paid for with the child's medicaid. This service would allow your child to receive specialized care and rehab services that he needs while you work. Good luck. (12/01/2005)
