3 generations of women need help moving

Hi, we're Teresa (grandma), Alie (mom), and Exees (kiddo) and we all need to move within 2 weeks while stuck on fixed incomes (which is very low, under $800 for the month) with barely enough for bills, let alone moving .

Here's how we got here:

A few years ago my father was struck by a rock while mowing, it broke his leg badly, he had to take time off work and not move around much. That was hard for him as he's always been a busy body, and all about that manual labor. After weeks of not being able to do much he started having problems breathing and doing tasks. He went to his primary, who sent him to a cardiologist and also a proctologist. After almost 2 years of doctors, we learned he had prostate cancer AND congestive heart failure. This was a major problem, you cant have heart surgery with cancer, and the cancer couldnt be treated as his heart wasnt strong enough. He was left to die. 

Around the end of last year we enjoyed our last Christmas with him. 3 days later we planned on writing the will. Family was already on their way, including myself, and we all missed him by less than an hour. He died in great debt, unable to leave us anything but memories. At least theyre all good memories, he was incredibly caring and kind.

Winter break, memorial services, and frantically trying to figure out what to do when a parent dies all bombarded us. We lost time stuck in bouts of grief and we were try to get back to normal, and starting to figure out how life works now, without him. Before we knew it covid spread across the world. We were locked in place, stuck where both happy memories and great grief hit us all constantly. This was home, but for how long?

We had to keep up on the bills without him. My mom and I are both on fixed incomes. $783 flat a piece. It was just enough to pay the bills and make sure we had essentials, but we couldnt save a penny. 

Due to covid, all moving has been slowed greatly, allowing us to try and find residence, but we're tapped out. I tried moving in with a friend so i could be out of the way with my daughter, but it was a bad situation and now some of our things are strewn about different places. Everything we had (in terms of stability and home) was his, and its gone now.  Most of our things are in my childhood home, which is being sold for bills at the start of Nov.

sorry my story is a bit more strait fact instead of heartfelt, theres much more to it and ive done my best to sum up. im not one to show my emotions, but im trying.

Anything helps
