I don't normally do this, and I hate to even say it but, sort of an 2 updates
We're homeless, as of tomorrow my 3 yr old and I will be either sleeping in a homeless shleter or in my car. I get PA, but I can't come up with a down payment even on a studio. All places I have gone to get help can't help. I'm just so used to being homeless now that, I'm not even upset over it. I can't work anymore becuase of kidney disease. A week after we moved (abuse was going on where we were), I went to the ER for unrelated kidney problems to have them tell me my kidney's are bleeding and no one knows why. I told my case worker and she said don't work. Thats only one of like 15 other health issues I have alone. I've tried a lot to get off and do something to be out of this situation to always be back in it, I went from getting $600 to $800 a month in cash to $400. I want to work again but with out perment residance I just dont see it happening, I would also have to find child care. Again, I've gotten into this situation more then once that I'm not even bothered by being homeless tomorrow. I Just need to know is any of you ladies have any other ideas besides the section 8 offiice. I also have looked up some resources in my area but nothing is available/opened till tomorrow. I am in Salem OR.
Well I have come to two options if absolutely nessicary. This is if no agency is able to help, one is to ask ds's grandparents for money to get us into an apartment, they have money and they always tell me if there is something they can do to help let them know, after a few phone calls if nothing happens I will be e-mailing grandpa tomorrow. As for number two it's my least favorite but I will be using this option too if nessicary. I will be moving to yet another state, california, becuase my best friend and one day boyfriend/husband has offered my son and I a place and well he has kids so it would work, I mean it would work anyways but you guys get the point. So while I feel stressed, I am hoping the first is more doable then the second, just becuase we have already started are lives down here.
I asked ds's grandfather and they cant help right now. So I guess it's back to calling around tomorrow again.
