For anyone who cares.. We're being evicted here in California. We have to be out by end of Monday and have no place to go.. If you can help, we desperately need it. We have a whole $384 to our name right now and I am truly scared. I do not want to have to end up in the hospital again. We have been trying to find a place to go with no luck.

Does the forum donate button still work or do you have a different system now?

Have you managed to find somewhere to stay. If you provide info about what state and county you're in I will check out what county and state housing there is. No doubt there will be a waiting list but if you get on it then it should result in a more permanent roof over your head further down the line (Trump's partial gov't shut down notwithstanding.)

For those interested:

Merced is in California's central valley, about a two-hour drive from San Francisco/Silicon Valley, without traffic delay. People will make the
four-hour/plus commute daily to work in the tech industry because of the high wages, and to escape the outrageous property values on the
San Francisco peninsula. A $300K home in Merced easily sells for $1.8 million in San Carlos, Belmont, San Mateo, Sunnyvale, etc.
Gasoline in both Merced and San Mateo and Santa Clara counties is cheap at @$4.00 a gallon. Hamburger (the crappy 80% fat kind) sells
for about $4.89lb. Example: a 890 sq. ft. apartment with covered parking rents for $4,100 a month on the peninsula. Single room rates in
shared homes with street parking are going for $1,500 a month.

Madness,people, madness....

After some hunting around I did find this page on line that might help:

https://affordablehousingonline.com/hou ... ced-County

There was also a link that took me to something about Section 8 public housing which offers applications for accommodation to people who have housing vouchers. I don't know if you qualify but here's the link....

http://www.merced-pha.com/applicant-portal/

One thing I have learned from this: bureaucracy is pretty much the same no matter where you are. What you need is never where it would be logical or easy to find it.
