    My husband, myself and our two toddlers left ohio with a promise of a home and jobs. With the recent pandemic, we got here and everything was taken away. My family and I are now sleeping in a car, trying to make our last few dollars stretch to feed our kids until we can find help. We have nowhere to go, no nearby friends or family, were not from here and are running out of means to feed and shelter our 2 and 3 year old. Please help us in any way you possibly can, its greatly needed. Please and thank you.
