    Hi we are a family of three. We are US citizens and just came back here from the Philippines. My dad is blind, Im 17,and I have a 12 year old sister. We have no place to stay my dad only receives a small amount for disability and we cannot afford a house yet. I also have no ID's such as driver's license to work yet because we just moved. Is it possible for us to stay at your shelter while we try to get on our feet? Thank you
