Government Shutdown Leaving Us Desperate

I am asking for assistance to keep a roof over my family’s head.  The government shutdown is leaving us unable to pay for all of our bills and rent.  I work for an agency that is not getting any pay, not even from the holidays.  My boyfriend works in DC where the effects of the shutdown are hurting business and money substantially. We have a two year old son to take care of and it’s extemely scary not knowing if we’ll be able to afford food or even diapers for him.  Even with my boyfriend picking up extra shifts we cannot afford our apartment and bills without my usual income to help. My car is in need of repair and currently not working.  I can not afford to make those repairs due to not receiving any income at this time.  We also have the cost of daycare, taking him out would still cost us two weeks advance notice and the possibility of losing his place to another child and not having the care for him when the government reopens. I’m asking for any assistance to help us get through our bills and rent for this month and next, until we can get back on our feet.  Please feel free to share! Anything helps, thank you!
