Veteran And Father in Danger of Homelessness
I am a father of a 12-year-old girl, and a veteran of the U.S. Navy. I found myself homeless just before last Christmas, despite working. I was homeless and carless for about 5 months - which impacted my ability to work, or spend time with my daughter. I am self-employed as a technical subcontractor, and I am an outstanding technician. I have a 12-year-old daughter who adores me. She wants to come live with me. She's with me every other weekend, provided I'm able to care for her.
I am out of money until I get paid for several jobs. I don't know what the holdup is, I've been calling and emailing for weeks with little or no response. I am about to be evicted and I am horribly stressed. I don't want to be homeless again. I need help paying my rent. I was homeless all winter, and I don't think I can emotionally handle being homeless again.
I hope that time helps me get my feet back under me. I've been through so much over the last year, it seems like everything I do works against me. But, I have to keep trying. I am looking for a full-time 'real' job. Once I get a full-time job, I will use freelancing to supplement my income.
