My name is Angela and I recently moved from NY to Ga two months ago.
When I arrived i got and apartment and employment. One week ago my life took a sudden downhill turn when my house I was renting burned down.
Please help us get back into society.
I lost everything including one of my dogs. My son and I were not home. Now we, my son and I, are living in my car with our remaining 2 small dogs and a kitten we rescued from under a bridge.
I went to the welfare office, which I have never collected from in my life but heard they were supposed to help, and I was told I could not be seen for 45 days.
No clean clothes, no gas, limited ID (some burned up in fire but to get new ones they want money), no food. If I could get an new ID I could get a license and a down payment for an apartment I could get going again.
My only hope is that someone reads this and they will help us. I never thought I would be in this situation especially in the US of A. I have always worked hard up north, 6 days a week.
I have helped many strangers in need in the past, partly why I am in this situation now. I am asking for help this once to get back into society again like I was for so many years. I'm healthy strong, and educated so this money would boost me back to helping others again.
