Help for the Poe family

I was recently involved in a biking accident. I was riding and my bike tire got caught in a pothole in the street. I was rushed to the hospital with a head injury, fractured wrist and multiple abrasions. Due to the accident I was taken out of work( I'm a dishwasher) as both hands were injured. My wife had to take off work to help care for me since I take care of our two year old during the day. The loss of wages set us back and we fell behind on rent. Since then I have gone for assistance from the local social services department to city hall. Me and my wife have been served with an eviction notice and have no way to raise the money before Friday. We have two school age children and one toddler to support and have no where to go and barely enough money to survive at a hotel for a week. All shelters are currently full. We are asking for help from anyone who can or my family will end up homeless.
