“This is a family with a single mother who has three children under the age of 6. Two of the children have autism and require 24/7 care and monitoring. Mom works per diem but has a huge challenge of childcare because she can not leave her children with a typical baby sitter due to their needs and behaviors. Mom is also doing school at night. With being a single mother and having children with extra needs she is unable to work. Covid 19 has made for further challenges as some of the schooling and therapies are remote which requires mom’s time and attention as well. Without being able to work finances are very challenging and stressful. In addition to her children’s education , there are therapies, medical appointments and also the typical household responsibilities. With being a single mother and the extreme needs of two of her children and covid finances are a true struggle currently”
