    Hello, My name is austin. I am 27 years old. I'm not really sure why I am here. I guess I just need to vent. I've always been so strong and indipendent. I never thought I would be in the position I am in. I have a beautiful wife and 3 beautiful children. I work hard for a living. Last year I designed homes from water damage with hurricane matthew so my company could save victims money by drying...

At first I stayed in the cities but now I stay alone out in the country side. I find it much more peaceful and NO I don't drink or use drugs. Fifty eight years old trying to hang on until sixty two. Hope to get some SS...

    Homeless again TW

    0
    I'm homeless again, but at least I am settled in a shelter. I was kicked out (but not really kicked out) after a few days at the other shelter for a personal reason. It really didn't make sense and they said I had too much trauma (they knew about it previously). Anyway, they caused me hell for the few days I was there. There were too many conflict of interests and confidentiality issues and it...

    How to rebuild when you have lost everything?

    Thinking back I couldn't tell you how long it has been since I had my own apartment.  Maybe even as far back as 2008, when I lived back east - although I have rented rooms since then, I can't recall having actually had a place that is mine, completely mine, an actual standalone apartment with nobody sharing bathrooms and that sort of thing, since then.  Though I have had some decent roommates,...

    Invisible Homeless

    Hi, just joined this group and have to say after reading some of the posts, not sure if I belong. I am not without a roof over my head - I am crashing on my brother's couch. However things are not looking good in this new town and though I know my brother would never throw me out with nowhere to go, I can't see staying here with him rent-free forever. I am not naive and hold no romantic...

    I won''t go into my life story or hwo it happened, that would take too long. But I was homeless, living out of my car for a month, then in a shelter for six months. It was awful.I think one of the most basic human fears is ending up homeless. But I am just here to say that you can survive it. I am a Christian and pray alot, talk to God and that helps. While living out of my car, a Cristion...
