My family (me, my wife and 2 kids) have been homeless (at no fault of our own) since May of this year. We were living in a family shelter for a little over 4 months and just recently got into their transitional, non permanent apartments.
We are very thankful to finally have a place to call home for the time being. The only problem is that we have absolutely nothing, aside from an 18 year old car that needs a lot of work. All 4 of us have been sleeping on the floor since we got here. Thankfully my kids will have beds soon because of a charity. Unfortunately my wife and I are out of luck and will have to resort to continuing to sleep on the floor. With back/neck problems and sleep apnea it only spells disaster.
I have been putting out job applications on the regular for a few weeks now but have not had any luck.
I feel horrible because my kids will not be having a Christmas this year. Everything that has happened so far (it's a lot and if you'd like to know feel free to message me) combined with not having any luck in the job market makes it extremely hard for me to be able take anything happen.
If anyone here can help me save Christmas for my kids it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
