Need help & assisstance, please so stressed about it :(

Hi, i haven't been on here in a while because I was put through alotttttttttttttt these past months. Im now 7months pregnant, almost 8. I'm 18 years old but still living with my mother. She isnt stable herself.. we were supposed to relocate to Greenville, SC but that didn't work out. She has a section 8 voucher and they're telling her she won't be able to get her own apartment or house until December 1st. I'm due January 6th, I planned a baby shower and CANNOT be homeless until December 1st. Because I am 18, i am eligible for foodstamps, WIC, and all other help programs but its HARD finding a 1 bedroom or 2 bedroom ANYWHERE. She decided to come to Carteret, NJ to be closer to the family for help and this is where I am now. Anyone know any idea on help I could recieve for low income housing or a short cut to a section 8 voucher or anyone willing to help with housing for me? Im the type that would work and pay rent on time and everything, the waiting lists are 10 years!!!!!! Please help ..

My sister tried to get housing assistance and it was a 10 year waiting list, too, she ended up getting in sooner, but it wasn't right away. I would make sure you're on the list, because you never know what might happen, you might get in quicker, and then as anniebrooke said, where is the father? His family, extended family for you? good luck!! :(

Sounds like the babydaddy is out of the picture?  What about his family?
