Moving day(or what are friends really for?)

Moved the main stuff for a Friend I met on friend finder this weekend. No romance just friends. Still she deserved a break or two.
Got a 25 year old son living at home and working full time at McDonalds.(7.00/hr) That's OK though cause "at least he isn't in gangs or doing drugs." She is just now making him pay 1/4 of the expenses, he's howling at every turn.
He's smart but basically lazy about schooling and work.
Never had any good male role models though.
Long story but fairly typical of the women I seem to meet.
19 year old daughter is also working at McDonalds and has actually helped out with some of the bills. Doesn't have the common courtesy to even acknowledge my presence even though I am helping her move her stuff..(Raised by Wolves syndrome)
15 year old girl is interested in sports, basketball, and softball, plays piano, wants to write music. Not a GED in the trio yet though.
I recognize the extreme difficulty of my friends dilemma in raising her kids without any male role models.(I guess that the ones that have been around so far have been bad in one or more of the usual ways.)
I could rant about the feminism gone mad stuff but in this case I think that it's just a long series of no breaks in life. Or once life beats you down to a certain level it's just a day to day grind just to survive one more day.
I've been there and worked my way out of it many times. I think that it's easier for men to work their way up than women though from the stories I've heard from many.
Don't know what to do with this one class, other than just be a friend when needed. Going to fix her car and help her move her stuff out of storage. Gave her a couple of hundred to keep the alligators from snapping too hard a week or so ago. She needs more though and some of the other "friends" she contacted on AdultFriendFinder basically said she needed to have someone "take care of her"
She quit(AdultFriendFinder) said she has "too much baggage" for most of the guys. Maybe so but still sometimes just a little common compassion for a fellow working person can make a difference.
I'm leaning towards doing what I can to make sure she doesn't sink too deep. Maybe just being a friend is enough.
