[PDI] Help needed for social justice advocate

Please see request below from Kathy Slovick of DAWN.
This is an emergency. The woman's daughter and five kids are about to be kicked out of a hotel.
I am looking into it, but if you have church or human services contacts please contact them now and inquire about shelter for families in dupage.
If you have any luck call me if you cannot get through to D'Ane below.


What is needed for dramatic change is an accumulation of acts -- adding, adding to, adding more, continuing.

> Please I am in the worse place ever. I called every Church and government agency locally and was refused aid. As you know I am ill, I sought work for years and because of health and age I am seemingly unemployable but I keep trying and was using my car to do any odd job to get some money because I can not get work which I could do from my computer where I stay. right now I am $2500 behind with my rent and the car I was using is not working. I drove it to the ground attempting to stay<> has over 254,000 miles on it no opening windows, one door which has not opening parts and there is no air within it. Can not get it repaired therefore the little work I was doing I can not do. I went to the State Representative Office in my town she called all over as well and was told also I did not quality for state operated programs she is still calling for me. I told her the other day that the township office refused to help me even though I have been in the area for over 2yrs they claim I am not a resident because I am in a hotel but I can vote here and the census people came to get information from me because I am listed as a resident. So I am pleading that those of you who listen to my program and those of you within my e-mail list can help please.
> My daughter is also going on the streets today as well she was working for 2 1/2 yrs within her company and was let go she has 5 children and is in another hotel in another town today by noon she will be on the street as well. At one point she had no car but one agency got her a very old which also has no air and is rusted out so bad the brake system is not working well. Again by noon she will be in the car, she just located work part time, but has no babysitter and if she leaves and can not get help she will be in the car with the children. I helped her all I could and because of my health I can not take care of the children right now.
> My health also got worse because of the high heat in my car which caused the car to reach over 150 degrees at times so I ended up in the hospital twice within the past few months so please if you can find it in your heart to help me I have nothing no money not a dime and she doesn't either.
> Over the years I had reported all I could to help those of you to get your story heard I do not get paid and I have no commercials to help me paid for living which is one of the things that makes things work for talk show host, I was on WVON WJJG and others but I had no commercials to keep those programs going this is because it was hard for me to get around and get those commercials from area businesses. During the time I was in the hospital a company called Lease Financial Group overdrafted and shutdown my bank account these people have been involved in defrauding businesses and I have been working to shut them down but they caused me great harm as I was living on nothing anyway.
> I am not asking for a lot of money but anything that you can do and I need the help as soon as possible because we both with be on the street today with nothing and no where to help if I heard that you were in the same position I would do everything to help as I did from those who were under attack and who could not get their story within the mainstream media please if you can send whatever you have into my account and or by western union and or whatever. Its going back to 90 degree again here all never which and we don't know what to do please. thank you to those of you who can help
