I am a homeless person. I am currently looking for a job and palce to live but being homeless I find is difficult. I rufuse to beg for money as I find this demeaning but I willa dmit, it's tempting. I ahve nothing else to do so while Im sitting on the streets I mght as well ask a well mening person for a dollar or two so I can get a muffin. I must admit that I used to hate being bothered ofr cash and I'd occasionally gice out money. But after meeting this one guy who lived on the streets at the bus terminal, you know when you meet someone who wont spend the money on booze. He was truly a nie guy adn I felt sorry for him and sorry that I didnt have a dime to give him.

How do you pay for an internet connection? Anyways I would feel sorry for him if I didnt have money to pay him. Though I would hope him to find luck

i guess you still have your family so why not go back to them while your looking for a job. besides they are your family and will accept and understand you as long as you will not be boastful. i mean just try to be down to earth by asking help. theres really comes a time that we really feel so down and the last person who can help us are our family.

you never know why this person is in the situation they are in. they may not be able to go to family. family may be the reason that they are homeless. it's unfortunate, but sometimes family is the last place you can go to.

If you are homeless then you must have an access to internet by an internet cafe's or some other means. Don't you have any friends or family to help you out on your present difficult situation nowadays. But since you have internet access I believe you can earn an income just by doing some internet works. About that certain guy who is also hopeless who lives on the street at the bus terminal,it is really a pity because no one should live in that kind of situation. I really hope and pray that you both you and this guy will find a home someday.

i'll pray for you. Dont you have any relatives to go to? where you from? if you can use the internet.. try looking for farm jobs in USA. not only they will pay you, they'll also provide you shelter and food. goodluck!

Artsy, Your profile says that you are 16. Why are you homeless and not in school or living with your parents? I can't imagine being homeless at that age altho I do know it happens. Do you have any friends whom you could stay with or relatives? what's your story?

Hmmm??? Let's see. If I were homeless, what would I do??? Hmmm? I would go by the employment office and make sure my name was in for getting jobs. I might try a temp employment place. Still no luck, I would walk to the rich section of town or maybe to some of the large churches. Knock of their door. Tell them I'm homeless but will work real hard at any jobs.I bet someone would help you out. Go to city hall. Ask what they do with the homeless folks.

that must be tough. is there a place where you can go for assistance? like some sort of agency or anything like that? hubby and i have been helping a homeless person and right now he is sleeping in our basement (he is a friend of the family). he will be getting unemployment shortly and possibly moving out (he knows he is welcome to stay though).

I'm sorry your homeless, I've never experienced this for myself. It must be a really hard thing to have to handle. I don't know that I could handle it but I know so many people are becoming homeless each day. I hope you can find another home soon.
