electric/water shut off

Desperate, Washingto

I am desperate, obviously or I would not be using this forum. I recently lost my job of 10 years and my husband has been out of work for 3 years, due to economy. We both suffer from medical problems and I am doing my best to get back to work asap. But these are tough times. I am managing to keep the roof over our head but the electric and water is suffering. The power has been shut off for 1 week. We are managing with a power inverter and cooking on our grill. I tried to make arrangements on the water bill and they said no, so I filled the tub with water to be able to flush. I am hoping and praying that someone can help us. I do not want to be homeless again either. So any help will allow me to keep paying rent.
