  • Why are you becoming homeless?? Are you being kicked out for a reason? Maybe you should just try to talk to whoever owns your home. Maybe you could work something out. Also if you contact you local welfare office they might be able to help with emergency "rent payments" if that is the problem.

  • Go to a welfare office and tell them that you need help and that you have kids and are homeless. They should be able to help you out.
