I am sorry to hear about your situation ... a tough spot to be in without a doubt. I may be repetitive here, but i don't know your entire situation ... are you on, or have you applied for SSDI? Or even SSI? I assume your wife is not receiving unemployment? If she was laid off she should be able to apply for those benefits. Have you gone to the website for 211, or called 211? The Salvation Army is another place which provides resources for everything from rental assistance to food and may be a good place to start. There are new government grant programs taking affect which are specifically to assist and prevent people/families with keeping their housing during times of unemployment or health emergencies .. it may be another source of help for you. You should be able to go to both the Social Security website and the DSHS website for help and info applying for various programs. The community Catholic charities also offer a good deal of help with rental assistance, utilities, and other emergency costs and needs .. you need to make sure you start calling at the beginning of the month, as that's typically when their appointments are offered and fill up quickly. I hope this may be of some help to you ... I know things are really hard right now. Blessings, Cat
