I will certainly look into the ex-spouse benefit, as I'm fairly sure Mom will not get remarried and she was married to my Dad for about 12 years I think.
I hadn't thought of food stamps or Section 8 but she will probably qualify for both and those will help when things get rough.

Section 8 can have a very long waiting list. She should apply now.
