Hi I have been on your waiting list since 2012. When I first applied I was homeless. I then I got a job and my own apartment. Due to my lost of financial income. I lost apartment. I am asking for help. I am now homeless again. I spend lonely nights trying to find my way. I am 29 years old a single mother of four children. They stay with there granddad who is helping me while I get on my feet. Since then I enrolled myself in college@ Kennedy King College for adult education. I go the library on a daily basic because the streets are so dangerous. I use it as a safe haven& to study. From the library I try to find my way home where to go. I'm trying to set my mind free. I'm trying to find a solution I've all that as individual to my knowledge. All my savings I spend lonely nights. In a motel room so I can find peace. A room a night is about $64.00 and I barely have money to buy food or public transportation. I am very energetic. My endurance through my gnawing at Subway I have difficulties working in the fast food restaurants. Not just once but several times I was victimize. The boistorious noise on the streets affect me in the last two months to the octave degree. Please help Thank you Shindia
