Recently Unemployed - Mortgage Help

My Story:

I recently lost my company job of six years. They downsized and eliminated my position. I have filed for unemployment on 8-5-10, and they are telling me it will be eight weeks before I will receive a check. I have always been a month behind on my mortgage; since a divorce five years ago, and I have two kids in daycare. My mortgage company does not participate in the Michigan Hardest Hit Program because I live in a manufactured home park, I am struggling to keep up with lot rent and as of yesterday I am now two months behind on my mortgage payment.

I have just enough cash to pay my car payment and home/auto insurance. We have applied for Michigan food stamps, but it is not accepted as of yet. I really need assistance with my mortgage payment and I can pay my lot rent. I have two young children in elementary school and we really do not want to lose our home while I wait for Michigan unemployment. Thank-you!
