Like "So very sorry you are facing this awful problem. Have been on the edge of homeless for over 16 months. My relatives have thankfully kept a roof over our heads. But it has been week to week for most of that time. In our county the food stamp agency, the division of unemployment and the workforce center tell us they can offer emergency assistance if we ever are homeless. I don't know what type of help they would provide. They have each given us lists of area resources for food banks, shelters, and other services. Are there any agencies in your area that would help since you have been suicidal. That seems to fail into an emergency category. You mention you can't find a shelter that would take both of you, does that mean that at the very least for a short time you could both have a place at two different locations. That sounds better than both of you living on the street. "
