It might affect them. Typically when you apply and qualify for food stamps, a case manager will look at the total number of dependents living in the home, total number of people living in the home, and how much total household income is being made by all members living in the home. I can only assume that they have children under the age of 18 still. I can also assume that you no longer live there. By having them move in with you (and once again I am assuming your spouse or significant other is helping you with the purchase of this home) it could affect the eligibility of their food stamps because they will count everyones income in the house as one to determine if you qualify for food stamps. Hope this helps!

I don't believe it would affect your parent's food stamp qualifications. Especially since you will be moving in several months.

Stop listening to all the negative people around you. They aren't doing you any good. What you should do is go to the employment office in your state. They have a number of programs that can help people like you - how to write a resume, how to interview, etc. They can really help. In the meantime. Do volunteer work. Commit to a certain number of hours a week and treat it like a job - that means show up, work hard, just as if you were an employee. That gives you something current to put on a resume and it gives you a reference. You might also make connections that will give you a job. That is also nonsense about the military. But don't join the military out of desperation because you can't change your mind on that. Yes, if you have financial need, you can try for government benefits. That's what it's for. But don't expect a lot of money. It's designed to be barely, or even less than livable. You can also get health insurance.

Actually, keep your head up. Places like National Parks are beginning to hire people for their summer increase. The company that supplies hotel workers to the national parks is good because it also provides inexpensive housing for employees. You also do not need special work experience, for they provide training for cashiering, roomskeeping, retail and restaurant work. If you DO have fast-food experience, that is good, but you could also work as warehouse or receiving at the stores. If you are willing to travel or move, look into moving into great scenery. You do need to provide your own transportation costs to get to the location, but after that, well, wouldn't you want to put a job like "Bartender in Yellowstone NP" on your resume? http://delawarenorth.imomentous.com/
