Lots of people are in need of some assistance this holiday season. It's early to be thinking about Christmas for some people but for others it's almost too late. We talked to a few families last week who are in desperate need of some assistance. They all have reached out to as many organizations in their local areas as they possibly can. They are looking for any resources and assistance that can help them. Some families are in danger of being evicted. Many have already received eviction notices and shut off notices. Some landlords are nice enough to continue to work with them. Some people are able to come up with payment plans but others are not so lucky. Lots of people have been late on their rents and their landlords simply cannot wait forever. Some churches have helped and provide food for families but rent assistance is harder to come by. Even in their situations, these families feel like there are families that are far worse off than them and they are still hopeful that they will find help.
