With a little help from my friends

This is my last resort. I didn't want to ask anyone for help, but I'm now down to the last days before we lose our home. My husband was working and making good $$ during Irma, but he was fired for what the job called "hard breaking." He is the guy who stops traffic and protects the power line guys. My husband had been with this company for almost 2 years & had never before had these issues. He takes pride in his work. Power had been out a week all over Florida. Dan was driving the company truck. He stopped and pulled over fast because the FPL power trucks had equipment fly off the truck, onto the road, and in front of my hubby's truck. After the incident, the safety company that my hubby works for called him into the office and told him he was fired. He was fired with no warning. Florida is a right to work state. They can fire you because they want to. We appealed to HR and he was hired back. A few weeks later his managers and supervisors kept finding issues. They fired him for taking a phone call from the corporate office while on the job site, Even though he was covered and had been told he needed to call them. The next day after he lost his job I received a letter from social security saying that my husband had made too much money last year and they were taking 8,000$ back. So my check stopped to almost zero. We lost all food during hurricane Irma and have never recovered. We didn't know how we were going to get back on our feet.We tried to get help. Then a day after my husband's job and the loss of both incomes My truck died. Done. I lost my only means of transportation. We have now been evicted and have only a few days left. We have exhausted all of our funds. We need a little help to move. We have been blessed with land being giving to us that is ready for us to live. We need to get a trailer, or camper so we have a roof ovef our head. We don't need much, just enough for the bare minimum.
