We are a family of four. Myself,adult son and daughter and grandson. We are unable to pay our rent utilities included. Oldest son is working part time hours and adult daughter is trying to find a job. I am elderly and only have social security enough to provide food for the month. We are trying to catch up on the rent but its almost impossible. The apartment is in my daughters name. Me and my adult son had no where to go so we moved in with her. Her landlord is charging us 200.00 to stay here but he doesn't count that toward her rent payments. We have no money to find another place to go. We have no choice but to stay here till we do. We could get evicted at anytime he wishes. I am asking for your help.
