No one-stop shop with
help for homeless like me
I have been homeless for almost a year and the last 50 days I have been trying to get back on my feet.
I have struggling because there is no one-stop shop with help. I have to obtain documentation from multiple organizations and get on long waiting lists for housing.
Since I have stopped using drugs, I have been completely freezing cold at night. I have to hide at night to set up camp. I am not a thief so I have to illegally panhandle for money for transportation and at the end of the month for food. When I get documentation I need it gets stolen.
Despite the constant struggle, I am somehow making it work, but the average person isn’t nearly as resilient as I am. Proper shelter with proper programs will decrease crime.
