Homeless

33018126_154308085822179_r.jpeg On Oct. 13, 2018 My disabled son Dave, my daughter who cares for Dave, myself and her three children lost our home. I Supported my children for 14 years solely on my own. Then my grandchildren for a few year's. I have always been a independent person. This is very difficult for me. I tried every avenue to get help. I was able to get $175 a month in food stamps. My sons SSI covers 2 weeks of the moteI room a month. Sometimes we run out of food. I have been sick for almost 4 years. I was told through social service's to put my nonverbal special needs son who cannot care for himself in a men's shelter in Paterson because he is over 18. Myself in a woman's. I found out from a different department of social services who does housing.  My son being nonverbal and unable to care for himself will not be excepted into a shelter. My daughter was able to find a temporary place with a friend. Being very sick unable to care for myself fully and for my son. My daughter comes almost everyday to help me. I had my hearing May 31st. Now it could take up to 3 months to find out if I am approved. As of today Aug.
8th. I still have not heard from my lawyer. Then there is a waiting period for the financial part to be settled.      My daughter has been trying to care for Dave and myself for over 3 years that I have been sick. She is not well herself. She is unable to help me financially. I haven't had a income since Dec. 2015. I have gone through all my assets. My health is declining under the circumstances. Trying to survive in a cheap motel and feed my son and myself. Having nowhere else to go while I wait. Praying this reaches out to anyone who is able to help us through this difficult time.
God Bless!
