Homeless and Hungry

Organized by: Erica Horton

Hello, my name is Erica and I've been homeless for almost three weeks now. How it happened is rather simple, but that doesn't mean it's less important. I am a single being who had been completely abandoned by their roommate. We worked at the same place together so that meant a way to and from work. He left and took every single bit of money that I had with him. Searching for a job is not easy when you have no money or mode of transportation. I have walked to every business within a ten mile radius looking for a job, but seeing as the season is over here they are hard to come by. Positions aren't as needed as they were a couple months ago. This has left me in a strenuous spot because it's as if I'm stuck. My health has started to deteriorate from not eating or drinking water on a regular basis. I don't know how much longer my body can keep this up. I'm scared, I'm not safe and God knows I would love to feel safe, but honestly at this point that feels like a luxury that I just cannot afford. I'm begging anyone and everyone if you could please help me, please! I haven't given up the job search, and I won't! I just need some help along the way. Sleeping in parks, and behind dumpsters really sucks. i spent most of my time in the local library looking up jobs to apply for and keeping myself as busy as possible so I don't have a breakdown. Please... Please help me.
