Me and my children are homeless as of today and have no where to go or money to stay anywhere. I have been trying to reach out to all the agencies possible looking for help and have turned in applications for section 8 but they do not have emergency housing. I have been trying to get something done about this landlord that has been harassing me and committing fraud and refused to allow us to rent even if we paid rent, and the judge allowed this knowing I am disabled with severe mental illness with chronic medical conditions and have nowhere to go with my children and no money to stay anywhere. I am now sleeping in my car with my son and I still cannot get help.

I and my wife are in need of emergency housing, we have been homeless for about 10 yrs. Currently we are in a shelter (Tiny Homes) where they are supposed to help. However, we we’re offered a room in a shared living home. After refusing, desiring a home for ourselves where our children can visit. We where reminded that our income is low because there is no voucher and were given 30 days or get out of the shelter and back to the street. Where and how could I apply for a voucher / emergency housing?

Same boat someone please direct me in right place
