Family Looking for Place to Live

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wa -   Sandy Engelhart called KNDO because she's been evicted from the house she was renting, and has less than two days to find another place to live.

Engelhart lives with her husband and son -- as well as her brother and sister in-law.  If they can't find a place to live, they say they'll be sleeping in cars. 

Engelhart says the landlord evicted them when they fell behind on their rent.

A judge has also ordered them to pay $1,300 in court fees to the landlord.

"I've been calling everywhere trying to get somebody to rent us a place," says Engelhard, " And everthing is just going wrong for us."

We made some phone calls -- and it turns out the Union Gospel Mission has apartments available at their family shelter right now.

And if the family needs work, or help finding a rental, they can call 2-1-1.
