We need some help please!

As most of our friends know, Lauri was laid off from her job at Yale after 15 years. A year later, Ruben was laid off in 2012. The last couple of years have been really difficult for us, but we did ok.

Then, the Congress didn't extend unemployment and Ruben's unemployment was just stopped on January First. I am currently working a minimum wage job, part time because that is the only work I could find. Ruben is not working, unless you call 8 hours a day applying for jobs not working.

As bad as it is, it gets worse. Our landlord advised us two weeks ago she is selling our house and we all have to move. This is where our troubles really are, and why we started this account. We need to figure out how to pay first, last, and security to a new apartment as well as rent a truck for the move.

To say that we are horrified and mortified we have to do this, we just really need help.

If you can help, Thank You, if you can't, we understand completely.
