Alternatives to shelter

Post by Spanarno1 » Mon Mar 03, 2014 2:14 pm

My father started drinking and lost his job do he couldn't afford our rent anymore. I didn't want my brother and sisters to be around him anymore because he was becoming unstable, so I took them to the motel I work at. But now I have to pay $550 for the month but after buying food and gas to get them back and forth to school I can't afford it. I need help. I don't know what to do, I don't want my siblings living in a shelter.

If you are of age you may be able to get custody of them. I would try calling 211 and see if there are any resources available.

Our current landlord is refusing to make the necessary repairs to our home. The bathroom floor has begun to rot causing the tub and toilet to start sinking as well as the walls to lean. The floor is unstable and already is showing signs of growing mold. The cabinet in the back of the shower has leaned to the point that one of the doors fell off hitting my niece in the forehead leaving her with a huge knot and concussion. Our bedroom wall has a fist size hole leading outside. Our power continuously has outages due to thrown fuses. We are in desperate need of a new place to live ASAP and do not want a shelter. Can someone help us relocate to a new place within our county. This has become an emergent need.
