    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...

    From Homeless To A Home

    My apologies. I tried several different subject lines such as Escape From Homelessness and Re-Entering Society before deciding to go with From Homeless To A Home. Really, I'm not trying to be a wise-quacker.I would like us to put our best ideas forward on how a person can go from being homeless to having a place to call home (not a homeless shelter or a temporary stay in a church basement, but...

    There is hope.

    1
    My name is Tanya and I want to say there is hope. I was homeless for 17 years. I grew up in a good environment, except that I had to suppress who I am (long story), first with alcohol and then eventually drugs, mainly pot and acid or mushrooms. After high school, I gave up on life where I was and started hitchhiking around the country, burying Tanya looking for something else. The longer I...
  • I am a lively 39 year old,that has been homeless for the last 23 years. In December I decided to leave Sunny Florida so I could see where I was born. Unfortunately, I again found myself on the street. I went to the local Salvation Army where they told me I would be able to get help getting an apartment and steady part time work. What I found was something just the opposite. See, I suffer from...
  • The guy who I've been with for 8 years wants me to leave. I have nowhere to go, my job was with him, and I don't have many marketable skills. I failed college. Right now my dog of 7 years has Lymphoma and has 6 weeks to live. I am watching him die. My mother was told by her Echo, EKG, Stress test and Ct that she is fine. The tests were all wrong or don't mean much as last week she had a heart...
