I am a single parent of two (that are still @ home) i moved from Cali to Il, I do not like it here and I very much want to relocate I am also disabled but not incapacitated. I have thought about NC but I don't know anyone there and I would be starting from scratch and wherever I land it will be for good as I don't want to keep moving and be unsettled I'm looking for any advice that anyone can give...
I also need school information my children are 14(daughter) and 11(son), this can be a particularly hard time for kids in this age range and I want to do what's best for them. I do not currently have a car and this may also present a problem, I would need to be located where transportation will not be a problem. I am also interested in returning to school, so I have a lot on my plate. So in advance I would like to say thank you in advance for any and all advice that comes my way...God bless you all...

Public transportation in most NC cities is poor, so not having a car would be a big disadvantage. Also, you absolutely should find a job before moving here--what area do you work in now?

Some people don't need a job when they come here, especially if they have a disability.

I truly believe having a car in the Triangle (Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill/Cary and surrounding area) is a necessity -- even more so if you have kids. There aren't that many buses, and there is nothing else except taxis, which are generally crazy expensive.

The OP may be getting SSI and/or long-term disability and therefore may not need a job to relocate.
