Help us put a roof over our heads

My family was displaced from our home August 9 2018 and we’ve been living in hotels ever since. My wife is working two jobs and I’ve been doing side work waiting to return to work full time after this whole thing is over( I spend most days calling places and looking at properties etc..) . We have yet to find a place that we meet their criteria that would be safe for our 13yr old son who has Autism. My son John has been a trooper through it all. Staying positive. Saying things like “maybe we’ll find a place to move to next week.” As a father this is brutal to hear. We’ve found a place that works for our family it there is a lot of hoops to jump through. We’ve covered all the bases except a $2,000 security deposit. We just can’t seem to raise the money while we are living in hotels and paying anywhere from $90-$140 a night so that my son feels at least somewhat normal while he’s in school. Anyway if anyone... I mean anyone can help with even just a little bit we’d be so appreciative. My wife and I just want this to be the last week our sons has to say “ Maybe we’ll find a place to live next week.
