My family are losing their house

My story with my family has always been a rocky one, but we've always been able to make-do. My parents have been married for 31 years and I have 5 younger siblings.

Money's never been something that we've had much of, but through God - we've always been able to have the necessities.

This past week has been insanity to say the least. 

We're a family of 8 and we've had the same 2 bedroom house for the last 30 years. Through those 30 years and 6 kids, this house has gone through a lot of wear and tear.

Due to the condition of this house, on Wednesday, my 3 youngest sisters - ages 11, 15, and 16 were taken from my parents by DSS. Earlier today the housing commission came by and has condemned the house.

I moved out in May and am currently self-employed, but I'm going to get a part-time job to help out as much as I can.

My dad has health problems and hasn't been able to work in years and my mom works all the time just for the family to make ends meet.

I hate asking for money, but in this situation we're lost. My parents have to move out immediately and we need help.

Thank you.
