  • Do you have any relatives you can stay with? Call anyone you know who may let you stay a few weeks.

  • Go to your local social services department and they should have contacts with agencies that may help pay your rent or mortgage. I guess if you had family to fall back on you wouldn't ask, but what about distant cousins? Swallow your pride. Get in touch with all of your local church pastors and see if they or someone in the congregation can help. There may be some people with any empty part of their homes. Good luck - I'm a single mom and I know how scary it is.
