THE STORY:

I'm a 51 year old U.S. Army veteran; I've worked hard all of my life and been basically poor but content. Three months ago, I was suddenly fired from the job I'd been doing for 2 1/2 years. There was absolutely no warning, just "you're fired". As I had been working "under the table" I was not eligible for unemployment and have been unable to find a job since then. On 13 Sep, I received an eviction notice ($1,875 arrears) to get out of the place I've lived for 18 years, with ten days notice. (23 Sep). I applied to the VA for a program to prevent veteran's homelessness but have heard nothing since then and my time of homelessness is rapidly approaching. The sad part is, 2 days ago I was tentatively offered a really great job with great pay that would get me out of this situation, but it looks like I'll be on the street before I can even begin. The daily stress of this situation is giving me headaches like I've never had before and I often feel trapped and like I'm going to have a heart attack. My electric and cable bills are also overdue and will probably be shut off soon, not that it would matter.
