Trying to find a temporary location for myself my husband my 15 year old son and my 12 year old daughter. We have been homeless since July of 2020 we were living at the campgrounds until the storm Drecho came through and blew away and ruined all of our belongings. The issue of having to make three times the base rent in our monthly income is what keeps holding us back and my husband's background check as he has gotten in some recent trouble and is on the mend of getting better and then the eviction all of those things working against us we are unable to find any housing.
