Crashcrom, Lakeland,

My 12 year-old son and I have been living in motels for the past couple months, as we have searched for permanent, stable housing. I was laid off from my job in late August, and have been subsisting on my son's SSI payment and on weekly unemployment checks. For reasons that are not clear to me, when I filed my weekly claim for unemployment earlier, I was told that I do not have any weeks to claim, which makes no sense, since I have only been collecting for a couple months. Without that money, my son and I will be bound for a shelter. I am concerned because he is autistic, and he could easily spiral out of control in such an environment. Any assistance you folks can provide would be greatly appreciated.
