    I wish I could come back, I felt so safe and it gave me structure and stability, but my 90 days are over and I'm staying at a motel right now paying more money than I make.. I wish I could come back and pay the 35$ a week for a while until I get enough saved up for the first month rent and deposit and utilities deposit.. I figure about 1,500.00$ is how much I would need in order to make a move into an apartment or trailer and I have 600.00$ in my account but I'm having to dip into my account to keep on renting this motel room
