Wow, it sounds like you'd be a great addition to the Boston area tax budget. There's a great women's shelter called Rosie's Place and plenty of popular areas to beg for change from city commuters nearby on Massachusetts Ave. Your kids will love the freedom of inner-city living, although as new kids they may find it difficult to break into the local gangs here. The city does offer housing assistance, but only lowers the rent, doesn't pay for everything. School lunches only last during the school year though. For the summer you'll have to send them out to fend for themselves. Medical coverage is free too, but don't expect to get prescriptions like adderal and percocets with it. It mostly just covers checkups and emergency visits. There is a food stamp program, the kind with a ATM card, but they're talking about restricting it so you can't buy cigarettes and lotto tickets with it, which SUUUUCKS! lol

All in alls, I say move up here. They are lots of places to get free hand outs and more than enough stupid college kids in city government willing to show you everything. Just need to start asking around. Heck, Harvard University has free classes that teach you how to sue your landlord for not keeping the heat on during the winter. And oooh boy, coming from Florida you are going to HATE the winter here. And the summers too, they are much hotter because of humidity. Hope you can afford an AC because the city doesn't pay for that.
