Many people tend to feel embarrassed when they apply for welfare; however the system was set up with intent of providing benefits to impoverished Americans. This is done by using several different governmental programs such as Food Stamps, Medicaid, HUD homes programs and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). When you hear politicians and the public speaking of welfare it is normally referring to Temporary Assistance to Needy Families, or TANF, this was formerly called AFDC (Aid to Families with Dependent Children) and it is a cash assistance setup that is usually directed towards single parents. This type of program is actually a fairly small portion of the entire welfare program. In order to take advantage of these programs you must meet the resource and income limitations.Do you feel that these federal and state funded programs do more harm than good or vice versa? If you are or were a recipient of TANF/AFDC, what are you doing to move away from being a recipient or what did you do to stop being a recipient?
