What resources are out there for men?
Looking for resources. I have been out of work for 8 years. My wife has AISH which covers her and our 2 kids. $1995 per month. It is not bad but I can’t find a job.
I had a child apprehended 12 years ago. It was based on a medical issue, someone reported that I can’t take care of my child after I left work for medical leave. But my friend took him in and I got my son back within 3 months however it is now on my Child Welfare Check that there was intervention and I have been denied jobs.
My friend became my wife but after she had cancer and now still in treatments, we need more money. She is sick all the time and can’t work. I am not allowed to work, my doctor won’t sign off. He barely signed off for me to drive close to home. I keep applying for jobs but I keep getting denied. I finally found one that includes driving seniors but got denied after child welfare check. I apply everywhere and it has been years.
I was referred to psychiatrist, psychologist, social worker. They all tell me to get AISH. I got denied and they said I can work or go to school. I never even finished high school and I tried going back and failed.
Most of my medication is not covered. Yes we have my wife’s AISH and child tax but after rent $1800 (house has been put for sale but it is handicap equipped for me now and moving would be impossibe). We tried renting but not getting anyone for $300 per room as we are in no bus area. Utilities, taxes. Kids in elementary school. I just need $800 or so to catch up on bills.
I can’t go to Income Support because my wife has aish. But we have no bed after ours broke. Barely working appliances. We are just really struggling to stretch money. We have seen budget places and nowhere to cut back.
No family alive anymore for us.
