Hi, I am a mother of 2 children unemployed and I was in Europe to visit my family and I got stuck there because airport was closed for and cancelled flights fmwer happen almost every single day due to covid19 pandemic aid , I recently came back and I haven’t gotten a job yet it is very tough, my husband recently started working but he cannot make enough yet to be able to pay rent and mortgage, My bank account is almost overdrafting and its frustrating when you have no way to turn while having small children.

I'm in need for a place for myself and my dog, I have to be out of a bad situation. I'm 66 and have health issues. My daughter lives in Woodridge and my grandson would be able to come and help me a few day's a week. I have SSI and Medicaid.
