Can anyone help us?!

Recently Marcel was laid off and since we live in the building where he has worked we will have to move out. His boss wants us out by the end of this month which happens to be about a week away. Without a job we really don't have much money to pay rent and his family here doesn't seem to be able to help us and my family is in California and can't help either. I'm really scared and don't know what to do. I have been prayerful and we have both been looking for places to live and work. We most likely will be doing APX again this summer even though last summer was very disappointing for us atleast it will give us a place to live for a few months and temporary employment until Marcel can find something that pays enough for us to get by. The problem is that won't be until mid april so we have 2 1/2 months between now and then without income coming in or a place to live. This is completely humbling for me but not easy to ask for help, but I am desperate. We aren't picky by any means we just need a place for us and our son during this transitional stage. I'm hoping that you may know someone in your neighborhood or ward or something that has a way of helping us. I'm so embarassed to make our struggles public this way but I feel like for Heavenly Father to be able to help us we have to do our part by being humble and reaching out for help... so that is what I'm doing. I know he is with us and will help us in our time of need. I just know it.

Oh I am sorry! That is awful! I don't know about a place to live but I know that within little or no income you can qualify for food stamps. You can buy pretty much any food and drink you need. Your local health and welfare office can help you or point you in the direction to go. You can go to the nearest State Office Building. They might be able to help with housing as well. Since it is winter and you have a baby they should be able to help pay your rent and heat. Just fill out an application and explain your situation to them. I hope you can get a place to live.
