It is a long difficult story. I was left homeless a month ago. I fell on hard times following the divorce from my husband who was a drug addict. He left me owing $2000 rent to an apartment we were renting along with my two young sons. I was evicted and had to find an affordable place for me and my sons. We found another apartment in a crime infested neighborhood. After a few years of struggling and having my apartment broken into several times, I moved in with my mother. We lived in her 2 bedroom apartment for a year and then moved into a house. I got a bit comfortable and thought all was well until my sister was allowed to move in with her kids. My sister conned my mom into leaving our home and renting an apartment with her. Leaving me pretty much destitute due the fact that I still owed a balance at my old apartment complex. I blame myself due to the fact that I trusted and had faith in my mother. I have never been homeless in my life and never thought I would ever be. But now I find myself in that situation. I have no other family. I been living in a motel for the past month and that's where the majority of my paycheck goes to. I could really use some help to get back on my feet. It has been hard. It has been humiliating. But here I am. I need help.
