I have a friend whose parents no longer wanted to take charge of him right when he turned 18 years.He has been looking for a job to maintain himself but has had no luck in finding a job since he is still in High School.Is it possible for my friend to receive some sort of help with rent or food?
Your friend may qualify for food stamps. Contact the Texas Health and Human Services Commission.

Perhaps. You should advise youe friend to apply on line. Even better help find a job.
The information you obtain from this website is not legal advice.
Call 211 and ask to apply for food stamps and Texas Medicaid (so he can try and apply for insurance). Also, there is probably a local "indigent healthcare coordinator" in your county (in the two nearest rural counties to me, one county uses Scott and White and the other uses Seton clinics) where he should apply for healthcare as an alternative to Texas Medicaid.
