I'm in a dire situation at the moment and I need help. I've been homeless since February and now I'm almost out of time within the shelter I'm currently staying at. Im hoping to raise enough money to afford an apartment for at least a month (and cover a deposit). I'm sorry for asking, I really am. I'm just out of options at this point. I apologise for the text below, I'm not sure how to change it back to normal on a phone.
Please Help Me
I was hoping I wouldn't have to write this outside of an autobiography, but this is my story and I think you would like to know what your efforts is helping. A few months ago my mom admitted to me that she couldn't afford to continue paying rent. We were soon evicted from our apartment, and I didn't have anyone to take me in. My siblings had friends but I've always been a loner. My mother moved in with her boyfriend I'm glad they're all safe but of course I had nowhere to go aside from an aunt who lived in Palmdale. I was lucky that she did, I couldn't stay for long but her taking me in was a life saver. After I moved in with her I was forced to commute to school or drop out. Without any money or any income I tried a way to continue going to school.I eventually began to sell chips and that made it a little bit easier but I never made enough to completely cover the costs of my train tickets. The stress that came with knowing I couldn't afford the train mixed with little sleep and nothing to eat made life a living hell. Still I remained strong and tried my best to continue my commute, but I eventually ran out of money. A friend and I were both I stuck in the same situation, we bonded over our struggle, and despite being a pride filled man we accepted our best option. It improved our chances of finding employment but it meant officially becoming homeless.We moved into a homeless shelter together and It was heart breaking, but we held on to the hope that soon we would have enough money to find an apartment. (His mother eventually was able to take him back in and glad for him.) Because we were student's finding work was tough, my friend found work but I didn't have much luck. I'm proud to say we graduated last week, it was a great day, but as things are I couldn't bring myself to celebrate. I'm still without a job and a home. I would rather not ask strangers for money but I know I need outside help, things aren't getting better and to make matters worse, I'm almost out of time at the shelter. If I can't get the funds to rent an apartment or a bedroom, I will be thrown out into the streets. So please if you can help me in any way I would be eternally grateful. Thank you.
