For those who are about to be homeless try calling your local/county's Human Resources to see if you qualify for assistance. My daughter and I did not and once you are out there, well... We cannot stay here but for a couple of more days that is why once again I am begging for votes at the Freecharitycars.org site under ibotter to try to get a car to live in. No one will help you for free so if you have food stamps offer them to a friend for temporary shelter. We have now used all of ours up, so I shall pray for you sinced no one government, friends or anyone is likely to help.
Oops just read some back posts. Beleive me when I say there is no help for us here in this area. We either need to be adopted or have a major miracle. My brother has now disowned us because he says we are such troublemakers and his health can't stand it. My daughter has just come off of a suicide watch and they could offer no help or suggestions at the center where they kept her. So you guys are just going to have to take my word for it and pray that others do not end up like us.
I guess I am under ibotter. I am so stressed I can't even think! Let me know how to vote for you dear Starshine for I fear nothing will help us at this point especially after talking to our local Human Services.
I hate to beg or solicit but my daughter and I really have no place to live much longer and are in need of a car or repairs. Please vote for us at freecharitycars.org provided by dear Schimdty or if you are really in need, apply too. We are about at the end of the rope, friends, and would sure appreciate it. Thank you!
I was hoping to apply for this but my daughter is now 18 so I gusee I will not bother to call in the morning as planned. We are stretched for time and I should not be here but searching for last minute tips and noticed reply in mail. Through the tears I thank you all.
Good morning, all! Will not be posting for awhile to say the least and wish everyone blessing and good luck. Will return and maybe can help others with our experience. I do suggest that those with modest needs to go to your local American Legion where I chaired many a charitable program over the past 14 years. That was one of the ways my daughter and I gave back to society. Since I am middle aged and never expect to totally recover from losing everything words and time might be the only things I can ever offer again. Thank you!
Out of all the politicians and at least 20 media sites I have contacted over the past few weeks the only ones I have heard back from were President Obama, Governor Charlie Crist and Senator Kirsten Gillenbrand's offices all with form letters. I plan to contact the local media again to try to get them to cover the Sheriff's office hauling our possessions to the curb although I doubt we will even get that to happen. And I am afraid we are in just the tip of the iceberg...
Yep, I have been contacting the media with my story and Michael Moore, too, he was one of the first I thought of to contact weeks ago. As for Roger Moore I would sure like to have his lovely voice as a narrator or pehaps for the audio version of the book, lol. (Maybe you were thinking about the feature "Roger and Me"?) When my mother was alive she couldn't help but call a neighbor she had Tim because he looked almost exactly like Tiny Tim even though his name was Tom so I imagine it was just one of those brain processes, lol.
Shout out to Starshine and others! Have been gathering some tips on living in a car, the problem seems to be finding some place to park without getting in trouble since I will not have money for gas to keep moving. Did find a shelter that is more than a one night stay but they want twelve dollars a day and are not even in our county, about 40 miles from here. On the bright side, since I am afraid we might just be in the tip of the iceberg, especially when everyone realizes unemployment benefits we not actually extended, just the dates to apply, maybe I can write a book about survival entitled "Deck Swabbers and the Peasants."
How did you find a shelter that allowed more than a maximum one night stay and I need some tips on what to put in your car for sleeping there, too, if possible. And what about mail? Just need one's tips who has actually been through it like we are going to be. It sure would be nice to have a bit of a map to go through this unchartered territory my daughter and I find ourselves in. Thank you.
