Life in the U.S. is supposed to be an achievable American Dream; a person works hard and then has something to show for it. In 2013, that dream is unmet for many Americans for various reasons. Some of them have had to SNAP to reality just to get by.
This blog will share what at least one family is encountering living life on SNAP and other assistance that might be available. It is a family of two adults, married for almost 15 years, where up until 2 1/2 years ago, both spouses worked full time, paid taxes, paid for health insurance and had lived from paycheck to paycheck for most of their married and low-to-middle income life together. After a long struggle, life began to look better, until unpredictable obstacle appeared.
It is the story of the Jim and Gina Farthing, my family’s story.
