Money for paying a light deposit for housing

My three children and I have been homeless since the end of January due to unpaid light deposit money.  We have been staying from hotel to hotel.  While trying to find a home. I finally found one.  I was able to come up with the money to move in.  However,  I do not have the funds for the light deposit for the lights to get turned on. I was hoping someone would be able to help me.  I am working but between driving an hour back and forth to my hotel room and work and having to buy groceries (my food stamps where cut off because I did not have a resident to put on file to use as my address when I had to renew).  The deposit is 325.00 for this housing unit. If your program would be able to help me or know another program that could help me.  I have the water and sewer paid.  The only thing holding me back from moving in is the lights.  Thanks for your time.
Thank you,

If you are homeless and have no money, there is some options for light deposit help.
But of course even if you get your lights turned on, then what? You nee to work to pay future utility and housing bills.
