Hi, my name is Suzanne Mitchell and I live in Reno , Nevada . I am writing this email because I am a single mom with 2 kids one is Vincent 13 years old, and the other is Venecia 11 years old. And don't let me forget our 9 year old dog lawless. We are currently in a bad situation and have called everywhere in Reno, NV for help well there's no help for my situation cause we have a dog and no shelters will accept her and they tell me i need to make sacrifices and put my family first. What? That's outrageous cause she is part of our family and has been for a long time we'd die without her, shes awesome. So I have no friends or family except my mom which is great shes helping as much as she can but she lives in housing and were not allowed to stay here and i know my mom is willing to give that up if need to be, but really she needs this and without this assistance her life would be just like myne and she's too old for that now, so i can't let that happen. This isn't my first time being in this situation, it's like the 5th time in the last 8 years. I'm so tired of it. I am having a hard time finding a job, and without a job I can't pay bills. I also just had back surgery on September 18th, 2013. I had a Laminectomy done on my L4 and S1 I had a ruptured disc in my back. I feel alot better now and can walk straight and just a little limp now. So doctor hasn't released me back to work yet but I think I'm ready or willing to suffer cause my life is so bad I have to. I usually go stay at a friends and get a job right away, and usually have a vehicle too. I have a place really quick. But I don't have a car no more and my dog got attacked by another dog in 2009 and she's not ok with other dogs now, shes ok with most cats tries to get them maybe once in awhile not very often. I am to scared to even take the chance, that was the worse day of my life and cost me a lot of money. lol! So oh no chances. lol! So the only place we got is my mom's. I applied for disability but from what I hear that takes a long time. All fundings are out they say unless you got mental health issues, or disabled, or elderly. It's crazy the only ppl that help is Washoe County School District-CIT(children in transition)program. All they help with is food, clothing, and free school supplies and they will transport my children to school no matter where we are living, so at least they will have one thing in their life that is stable. I don't know what to do. I use to live in housing when my kids were first born got evicted in 2003 out of the courts and the landlord filed a vacancy lease on me, I had one month left of my lease, which was not part of the agreement but Reno housing payed this to her and now i owe it to them. The total amount was $793 one months of full rent. I never received a notice,a collections notice, nothing. So in 2009 I went to apply for an apartment and got denied cause i owe them. Then i called and found out its in collections and the collection agency is charging me $1200 now they say interest cause it's been in collections so long. OMG! So with my income tax I was gonna pay it, but I don't think it's fair I also have to pay the interest charges when they nevernotifed me of the bill. So i didn't pay it. I have just worked and payed full rent. In 2011 I got a HUD apartment but the landlord kept trying to evict me, I beat her 4 times then got tired of it and went got a job, and gave notice and moved out. So I think I can re-apply, but I'm not sure. In the meantime I was working, struggling to pay rent, etc... My dad died in September 23,2012 I had to go down there and bury him, he left nothing so I was down there for 2 months w/kids and dog. Still payed rent in my apt used money from dad. We payed up till November 2012, and I was waiting for a check from my dad's bank which was due anyday My landlord wouldn't wait so we moved to apts. next door and payed 3 months rent which was to Febuary 2013. I did income tax that month so I payed rent till June 2013 hoping we should have jobs by then. Still no jobs, my husband was out on parole so they violated him and he is back in prison till May 2014. I lost my apartment, and all my so called friends that I usually go stay with got animals and I explained the situation w/our dog. So my mom let's us stay w/her but it's very small and we are not supposed to stay w/her cause she gets assistance .I've been calling everywhere, even the news, they are trying to find us resources. They say all fundings are exhausted in Washoe County . Unless your a drug addict or mentally ill. I been looking for a job, everyday, it's hard for me to walk far, and that's my only means of transportation, my mom is at work all day. So now that I've told you my story. The purpose of telling you my story is I need help, and or resources to get help, I don't want my kids under a bridge and if my mom loses her place for helping us then we literally are homeless, and have nowhere to go. I don't know what to do and it's like a constant problem in my life lately, I get it together, just can't keep it together. lol! Being homeless is ,a problem, it's affects the kids worse, and they are good kids, get good grades, don't really get in trouble. But the stress from this is hard on them, I'm teaching them the wrong ways and don't want them to grow up and think that living like this is ok. I struggle, I get no child support, no rental assistance. I need them to go to school get an education and a career and have a good life. So please if you know anyone that can help me or where I can turn too please contact me: Suzanne Mitchell 2025 Cannon street apt G, Reno, NV 89512 (just a mailing address) 775-432-2476 or 775-378-5854 or by email thank you for taking time to read my story and take time out to help me. I hope to hear from someone soon and have a awesome day! *:O) clown

Suzanne Mitchell
