Help a Family Avoid Going to Shelter

Hi everyone. My heart is so heavy right now with the ideaI of my nieces having nowhere to go. I was hoping to fundraise to help my sister keep her place in which she is under eviction and has to vacate in 3 days. She lives in a 1 bed room apartment and is a single parent of 3 Asian 15, Maraca 14, Taylor 8. My sister and I both have it hard growing up, especially without our biological parents. We were mentally and emotional abused by family member's growing up. So it's been difficult as far as our support system. We have been more so independent, since we were old enough and don't have family members that's able to help in desperate situations like these. Seems like ever! Sadly said my sister kids fathers haven't been much of a help since she's given birth to them. The Houston housing assistance program have been unable to help, due to lack of funds. My sister is desperately looking for work and help of any kind, she feels as though her last option is a shelter. I sat on the phone for at least a hour trying to console her, she was crying saying how hard she tries to provide a roof,food and clothing for her kids so they wouldn't have to live how we did. She stated how hard it can get at times and how everything is happening at once. My sister has a history of depression, she was dignosed a few years ago when she stumbled upon hardship, and felt like harming herself. I imagined her going through this depression stage and I'm afraid it may trigger those suicidal tendencies. I just wish someone can hear ours cry's and prayers and help my sister and my nieces through this horrible turmoil. She is really an amazing person and my nieces are just like her beautiful, talented and caring. She is unaware of what I'm doing, but I'm sure she will be ecstatic. Thanks for reading, commenting and contributing in advance. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
