Indeed,an unfortunate situation to be in.When you say we,I presume it may be your Mother also.I don't know the full story,and probably best not disclosing the reasons.
The first thing I would do, is approach the Salvation Army, or like Charity for assistance. Here they provide food and Shelter,if you are in dire straits. Hope a solution is found for you. :thumbsup:

Another possible resource is the Catholic Church (and you don't have to be Catholic).

If you have a vehicle, or even enough for bus fare, most towns of a moderate size on up have emergency shelters. I would stay away from the large cities. The smaller a town is, that has shelter facilities, the better.

Good luck, and keep us posted.

I agree with the advice already given. I would suggest you both go to a private charity first; almost all of them can find you emergency assistance and shelter, and their counselors have a wide range of connections with other groups who can also offer more long-term help to get you both back on your feet.
Perhaps you have relatives, even if in another state, which which you could live temporarily?

I'd go with the above advice, and try to keep your mind clear of any obstacles and dark thoughts whilst you help yourself!

Were you in any support group when your mother had cancer? Perhaps they can steer you in the right direction. After getting immediate assistance, don't forget to check state-run programs for long term help. Also Social Security and SSI
