Please contact weliveintheforest if you have anyting for this family.

 

What is your family situation?

We moved out of the province in 2008 to live closer to family in order to have more of a support system and lived in a primarily french speaking province and were unable to find suitable work due to language barriers. We moved back to Ontario in 2010 and my spouse was able to find short term work and housing, when that expired he did find a much better job, but it required us to move again from one end of the city to another which was a large expense , we moved in June for that job and subsequently he was laid off from that job in Sept due to a work shortage and has since been looking yet again for more work and his unemployment has not been coming in yet either as they have not yet at the time of this writing finalized his claim, any money we had started to save is gone at this point 2 months of rent and groceries for a family of 6. We are behind on bills and rent and any money we receive must go to those Christmas will not be an option here this year unless we can source some help. We are not proud to be asking but it's been a rough haul for us the past few years.
