There are many homeless on the internet some live out of their cars using laptops... others come on from libraries, or shelters, or internet cafes for a cheap price. .. Some borrow a friends computer, or a family members computer who are able to house them for a short time.. So please keep this in mind. I hope my listing helped you some what, take care - DNatureofDTrain

You should have a list in your local phonebook. You can also call information. Have you tried that yet? Best of luck to you, hope you got your numbers!
