A struggling mother of 2
Organized by: SHELLIE HAMMONS
Hi! My name is Shellie Hammons. I’m a single mother of 2 teenage boys. I have been raising my teenage sons by myself for the last 14 and 15 ½ years. I have been homeless since November 2015 with no luck of finding a suitable or decent place to call home nor have I had the opportunity to be given a chance to do. I have gone to government agencies to get help on my housing situation but they were either not taking applications or it was not taking applications at this time. I have tried every place just about to try and get help and have been trying to get help all the way around to make my life and my kids lives much better. I someday want to be able to have a place of my own without having to ask for help. I want to be able to not have to depend on the government anymore to do anything for me. I want to be able to say that I have something to look forward to in life instead of wondering how I’m going to be able to do what I need to do. All I am wanting to do is get a stable home as well as making it into what I want and need. I honestly want to make it a permanent place for me even if I have to do a rent to own. I don’t have the greatest job in the world. But I want to be self sufficient and stable in everything I do. But I know what I have to do. And I also know when to look and get help also. Let me explain my position on why I am doing this. I’m trying to get help getting back on my feet. I am also trying to get a better job or better hours at my job that I am working at. I had my hours cut for several months to the point I lost my last apartment. But I am needing the help from the public. I don’t make much at all to make my bills and housing. I still struggle working for minimum wage just about everyday. I would like to be able to support my family the best way I can. Please, please I am begging for help for me and my family right now and believe me this is a great way to show heart and pay it forward to someone else.
