Does anyone have any suggestions on who I could contact for urgent assistance with transitional living?  I am having one thing go wrong after the next.  My stress level is insanely high, I am mid flare and don't want to end up in hospital.  January is too cold for camping, and would just like help with a place to be and direction to go in. I do have some time, but not much, and when it comes to funds they are little if any.
