Lena Johnson's Plan to Escape Homelessness
Organized by: Lena Johnson
My name is Lena Johnson, I am a 49 year old black woman, a convicted felon currently on probation, and also a single mother. I am not ashamed of my pass, but some what ashamed of my actions. I feel that every thing happens for a reason and that God has a plan for me or else i wouldn't still be here. Now I am trying to turn my life around. So with that being said, here is my situation... Currently me and my two children( Leneesha and Demetrius) are in a homeless shelter in San Fransisco. We have been homeless for about 9 months. My twins leneesha and Demetrius are not really adjusting well to this situation but I keep assuring them that things will get better with a little faith and a lot of determination. My kids r 12 years old. So here is my plan. The reason I'm on Go Fund Me....? I have three major goals..1..I have been going to community college off and on i am studying Architecture but my major is Psychology ..had to drop my classes and didn't drop them in time so now I owe a fee. which is one hundred and seventy dollars, once i pay that I can register for classes and resume my goal. I am trying toresume school by next semester in August. I have been attending school since 2009 I will not give up. 2nd Goal..I need a car, I am trying to find a job but it is very hard especially without transportation... even tho public transportation is very accomidating in san fransisco, with getting the kids to and from school and doing what I need to do well , it's just hard. 3rd and ( MAJOR) goal. I am trying to find affordable housing for me and my kids. Which is almost impossible in San Francisco . So i want to say this. I am asking for any kind of help, be it money, info on rooms for rent, my kids need clothes, so any type of donations , my son is 12 years old but he is a big boy, he is 5' 5'', and he weighs 180 pounds . he is growing fast and his twin sister is right behind him. The other shelter we stayed at, when we left, we couldn't take our belongings right away so alot of our stuff got stolen including...... my daughter's musical instrument (Thrombone), most of their toys they got for christmas. and their wii video game. I am also a hard worker, I have alot of experience in many fields so any job leads I would appreciate. I am also planning on writing a book. some might say I'm very ambitious, and what I say to that is yes I am.... when it comes to my children, Yes because they deserve the best and I plan on getting it for them, and life is to short... Thanks for taking the time out to read this GOD BLESS YOU !!
