2019-01-30 15:26:17Lost our home and was staying in hotel. I was working n my husband just got out of jail and has been seeking work. I lost my job when I fell behind on hotel rent and the owner took all of our belongings we had left.. Began sleeping on streets and I lost my job. Have employment opportunities but no safe housing for us or a way to acquire the few items needed if we got the job. No idea what to do.
2019-09-10 15:06:50My last job came with an apt and when I lost the job, I lost the apt. I have no family. I'm from 4 hours away but I've been here 5.5 years so I don't talk to anyone where I'm from anymore. It's hot outside and the bugs are thick. Also,not having an address is keeping me from getting an id. And that holds me back from just about everything
