No thankfully I have never been homeless and always have had a job and roof over my head. I have been fortunate. I feel sorry for those less fortunate and hope that things turn around for them.

Yes. I was homeless with my 2 children when I left my abusive husband. We slept in a shelter for dv, a car, on the floor at friends homes, and in a motel that the Dv agency paid for. We finally were able to get into a house with the help of some good friends.

No thank goodness. If I ever became extremely rich, I would do anything to help homeless people. It is one thing that just breaks my heart, and if I didn't have kids, I would take people in now. I saw an old man sleeping on a park bench last winter. :(

Yes I was homeless before and even though I work 40-60 hours a week I still can't even afford to pay rent any where! Even a shot hole apartment is 800 a month for a one bedroom around here and I make roughly 800-900 a month.
