Missy's cry for help from homelessness
Organized by: Melissa LeeHudgins
I'm starting a fundraiser because I don't have any family in Virginia. I have always been independent and done everything on my own. My Father. Passed away in 1999 when I was in my senior year in high school. Ever since he passed away IV'e been alone with no guidedance. Im 34 years old and IV'e been on my own since I was 17. Now, im homeless Because my truck broke down and I was a delivery driver and a server. My truck had problems previous to this passed time. I fixed my truck several times but, this time I couldn't afford a clutch and the electrical issues that it was having. So, I decided to take my last check and my savings to pay my bills. I thought I would be able to find a job before things got out of control.IV'e never really had a hard time. Finding work. But, this time I got evicteted for the first time after 3 months of no luck in finding a job. I also had to stop going to school because I didn't want to ruin my GPA of 3.15. I was also on the merits list so, I definitely didn't to ruin that. Anyhow, IV'e been trying to scrounge enuff money everyday to pay for a hotel. IV'e been doing this for four months now and I can't seem to get out of this vicious circle. I have had to panhandle and beg for money. I had to let go of my pride to survive. But, things are getting worse because there aren't any resources here. And, even the churches don't have any funds. I barely have food or neccescities to get by.My only chance is to move to Ohio in Ridgeville. Recently, I have been applying for jobs there and Im trying to finish my degree.Being that I'm only 10 credits away from my associates degree in Administration Support Technology. Anyhow, I've never been in this situation and I feel so alone. If you can help me get to my family in Ohio I would greatly appreciate it..
