My physician Dr. Stearn referred me to your organization for rental assistance. Prudential, my LTD insurance provider approved me for 1 month, paid one month, then terminated coverage 2 days later. My attorney has the legal issue handled. I downsized last year due to medical costs. I was terminated from my employer in Jan 2015. I am currently unable to work due to surgical complications. I am touching base to see if you could refer me for assistance. I have exhausted all other government and other programs, including my church. I am now getting evicted from my only safe place. Please help if you can. Thank you.

The LDS Church (YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE A MEMBER to receive services)

has a program that offers all types of assistance....

Go to the "Bishops House" located across the street from HOME DEPOT at 63rd Ave and Bell (I think it is 63rd).... There is a thrift store called Deseret across from Home Depot, which is also part of the LDS Church) and next to the thrift store is the "Bishops House" (an office) and they provide food, services, clothes, etc.....and may be able to help you keep your home....
