From homeless to home
Organized by: Amanda Lozano
Born and raised in nyc I did not ever think I would have to ask for help. I was able to gradute cum laude which began the first part of my struggle. Student loans are garnishing my check at 35% wkly which caused me to become homeless. Now that I am in the shelter system I found that I do not qualify for many programs which are designed for the mentally ill, recovering addicts and recently released convicted criminals. During this time I was striving to save 1/3 of my income wkly when my bank account was frozen due to the same landlord who evicted me. Now the money I had saved I have to use to live with no hopes of getting better. With your help and my continuing labor I hope to reach my goal that pays my lanlord debt and return me to the self sufficient woman who can inturn help others.
