A home for my daughter

I am an over the road truck driver, I came out on the road 2 years ago with the intentions of saving money to buy my own truck. My daughter who was 9 at the time went to stay with her father. I sold everything and put my personal things in storage. I was not prepared for the unexpected death of my daughters dad a month ago. He passed away at the age of 49.  We are devastated by the loss. I came home to try and find a job closer to home to take care of and be with my daughter but again we were devastated by the news of the corona virus and so many being laid off. With no income, and being the sole provider for my daughter, I had no choice but to come back on the road driving trucks to generate an income. My daughter is an emotional wreck and does not comprehend why I am not with her. She is currently staying with a friend. All I want is to provide her with a place that she can call home, to be able to be there with and for her during this time.  I want to go home but we have  no where to stay right now and would have no income. My company does not allow anyone under 16 to ride on the truck so she has to stay with a friend. I feel lost and without hope right now. I thank you for taking time out to read this and appreciate any help in this difficult time. I just want to be with my daughter in a safe place of our own.
