Reply to Why do I feel so helpless..

I feel very similarly. I don't make enough to afford most of these places, but I make to much to get my son enrolled in a lot of the programs. I was on a waiting list for 1.5 months only for them to have me come in to finish the enrollment, then to be told I make too much money to qualify for the school. Now I'm stuck scrambling to find the right program, on more waiting lists and trying to figure it out. If I don't find something soon I'll most certainly qualify for the federal assistance!
