Has anyone been laid-off? Or had been laid-off but found a job?

Hi - I'm a new member. My husband was laid off 6 weeks ago. He is 57 years old - a lot of stress around here! Just trying to take a pulse - is anyone else out there dealing with this? How are you managing? I'd love to hear from anyone who has actually found a job. I think I'm just looking for a ray of hope. We're in the Boston area.

Thanks so much, Kate

One resource my friend uses for lower cost food is Angel Food Ministries. You pay $30 and get a big box of food. Around Boston, there are churches in Roxbury, Brockton, Woburn, and Jamaica Plains that participate in the program. Learn more at
