Have you and your kids ever been legit homeless?

Not staying with family or friends, not staying an extended period of time in a hotel. I mean living in a car, in a shelter, on the streets?

Thankfully, no. I hope we never have to, either.

No, never. I would prostitute myself before I let it get that bad.

No. I'd send the kids to their father if it came to that.

My kids? no. Me and my mom? Yes. When my dad left us, he took all the money, shut off the utilities and told the landlord the previous month that we were moving and he didn't pay rent. My mom had never worked so we had no income and it was hard for her to find work with 7 kids only 3 who were able to attend school. We lived in my mom's van for two months, she parked it in an alley behind the dinner found to she work at.

Yes. DD (1yr at the time) and I lived the homeless shelter after I left my abusive ex. I had arranged to do my unpaid internship the next city over so that he couldn't find us. The women and children's shelter turned us away, saying that they were full and I shouldn't ever expect to get in. Supposedly they put us on the "high priority" list, but I never heard back from them again.
