  1. I really hate having to ask but we are desperate. We are living in our truck, which broke down on us , my husband rigged it and it kinda goes. We have no house and no food It’s getting too cold and can no longer keep truck on for heat as we are out of money now. I would appreciate any information on anything available in area like couple nights warm shelter or food so we could get few days rest and be fresh to start looking for jobs and housing again. Thank you
