Need advise.....

I'm not sure where to put this but... I am currently on anti-depressants for PPD and my husband lost his job in November. we have bothed looked everywhere for work and nobody is hiring right now. we have been evicted and need to be out of our house by wednsday. I was getting food stamps and medical, but with the new systom they have right now with the budget crisis they lost the paperwork i turned in and have now stopped everything. so it might not be for few more weeks until we get anything. i have a 3 year old and a 10 month old, when we have to leave on wednsday we have no where to go. My husband gets unemployment but it isn't even enough to get a studio apt. Please don't bash about the food stamps because i worked all the way up until i delivered and i do pay taxes so i think it's fair to say i could use it if i truly need it. I just need some reasurence that things will get better because right now i feel hopeless.......

  • Another thing i have looked into all the shelters in my city and they are all full. I am worried about my kids health and what this might do to them. Any advice at all would be helpful or just help me try to stay sane.

  • OK with being evicted, did you go to court? You only have till WEd? Why are you being evicted? What was the process of this eviction? You have no family or friends that will let you stay with them? I can't believe not one person would allow you to. If no one will there are homeless shelters you can go to.

  • Try Catholic Charities. I didn't see your other response.

  • the reason we were evicted is because we couldn't pay rent. we haven't paid since november so i do feel lucky they let us stay this long.

  • OK, well they just can't give you 5 days notice to get out, did you know that? They have to give you 30 days

  • around here ,they have to give you 30 days( with an eviction notice) and 60 if you have a child.good luck Honey,do you have emergency housing,like Hud ,where they pay your rent or most of it according to your income? If so check into it,because in your situation you should be bumped up top of the list.Also do you have churches in your community ,to help you with food? dont be to proud to ask for help,like you said you guys have worked,just right now you are just down on your luck.I will be praying God moves in a mighty way for you all.
