Homeless Family in Need

I'm 16 years old, my single mom, two siblings, and I have been homeless all year. We had been staying with our grandfather after my mom left my dad because of his alcoholism and abusive behavior. Last year my grandfather had to sell his house to move to closer to his doctors in order to go through with his cancer treatment. A few months after he passed away. Since then we've been couch surfing but our family decided having all four of us staying there is too much, and so we've had to stay in a hotel. We tried going to a shelter to get help with housing sooner but they're all full. My mother works so hard everyday to be able to feed us and have a place for us to sleep. She's been applying for places for months with no luck. Our dad has refused to pay child support for several years now and our case hasn't progressed at all. This situation just seems like an endless cycle. Please, if anyone is able to reach out and contribute it would be very deeply appreciated ♡
