One thing I'd like to remind all families of is it's always worth checking to see if you are eligible for programs you never thought you would be. Many years after my children were young we found out we'd have been eligible for assistance when they were younger--we just didn't know it, so struggled along. Being too proud to ask for assistance, or simply not knowing about eligibility, especially when your children need it, makes no sense (and no cents!). I just wish I'd known!
