Homeless couple needs money for a 2nd chance

My girlfriend and I have been homeless on the streets by Harlem in Forest Park for over three years and finally have got ourselves to a point where we can no longer survive out here just before we literally fell apart completely Housing Forward came and got us a hotel room due to the covid outbreak The shelters are no longer going to be open during shelter season then God for that however they are running out of funding and trying to place people in homes which they can assist people with until they can get jobs but unfortunately we are running out of time and we need to find a job fast we have till next week to get ourselves a job because they found us an apartment that we can actually start over in and restart our lives we have goals and plans and want to get our own family business together started in order to do that we need money to do that and to survive just to even eat we have no money for food we have no money for transportation And all we are asking is a fresh start at some thing where we can maybe start doing a soul proprietorship business in the meantime while finding a job but if we can’t come up with money to pay the electric bill and a security deposit as Well is anything like electricity and furniture for the place we’re setting ourselves up for failure please if there’s anybody out there please help us we are praying and praying anything is a true blessing right now and I just pray that we can get this money together in time
