Why not start helping single parents find good paying jobs that provides them with health and dental insurance? Some of these agency that are supposed to help residents find jobs are only interested in boosting their numbers by pretending like they are helping residents. I know someone who used to work for this one agency that had a contract with CHA and he said that the agency wanted him to mislead and lie to residents about helping them find jobs when all they really wanted was to boost their numbers, which he refused to do because he cares about his people. And paying 30% of your income towards rent is a lot to pay when a person only have limited income.
