A helping hand to get back to school

22nd August, 2015

Question: I have three children going back to school next month, and my wife and I are facing huge expenses in the coming weeks. I lost my job two years ago, and things have been tight since. Are there any state supports for school expenses? And if so, how do I qualify?

Tom, Mayo

Answer: Sorry to hear that things have been tight, Tom.
