For those who are about to be homeless try calling your local/county's Human Resources to see if you qualify for assistance. My daughter and I did not and once you are out there, well... We cannot stay here but for a couple of more days that is why once again I am begging for votes at the site under ibotter to try to get a car to live in.  No one will help you for free so if you have food stamps offer them to a friend for temporary shelter.  We have now used all of ours up, so I shall pray for you sinced no one government, friends or anyone is likely to help.

Hi Everyone! Hope everyone is still hanging in there

I still do not have a job, it amazes me.... all the jobs in the paper and oline, that have been there for several weeks or more or they are advertised and disappear then "magically" reappear- same job you apply and apply and still nothing! Makes you wonder...

Well, today, I am pretty down... My beautiful son called and he is now homeless, not jobless, but that could happen if he does not find a safe babysitter and a place to live. He is a Marine, no longer active duty. He has two very precious children 10 and 8. Their mother, his wife abandoned them years ago. But like those jobs I mentioned magically appears off and on, when she wants something. I know deep inside she has to love the children, she just does not know how to show it or how to be a mother, ( I am giving her the benifit of the doubt, even though I am angry about it). They were stationed in apan for a while and when they returned to America  it was not easy. She promised to pay child support, bt that was sporadic. So... enough on that part.

My son, is pretty awesome, he is a carpenter, a luthier, ( builds guitars), an exquisite cook, a wizard with computers, he can build and customise them! He can restore antique furniture he can sew, he is an artist! I guess a better way of putting it is a versitile human.

He loves his children very much and in spite of all the hardships was willing to stay married, which he still is, so the children could be with their mother. She has decided to take only one, not both.

So today he called and said he had been evicted and basically lost everything he had to make a comfortable life for his children. He is in his truck with his daughter, no place to go.


I called several places for him regarding emergency housing , there is a have to wait. Obviously, there is a list! The unemployement is out of control, yet on the news it says otherwise... this "economy" is not getting better, I have blond hair but I am not stupid


I am going to send him this link, I am not certain if he will join, he is not in the best of moods right now, he is very worried about his daughter and wheter or not he will be able to stay employed.He did apply and does have food stamps, so that is good but now a place to live too, the one place I did call said they have to start a case file and I am sure everyone is aware of the bureaucracy involved. He found a place to live but will need the money to move in. The place I called is geared to assist families with move-in money, as long as they are employed, how long that will take? Who knows.... No one answeres the telephone, but that does not surprise me, it just reinforces in my mind the "state of affairs", and no one wants to say it, but they cannot help. There is no money to help those who desparetly need it.


If anyone out here has a few suggestions let me know, he is in Ada county, in Boise Idaho.

I know each of us are really hurting so prayers are the best yet, and then just let me know if you have any ideas.


And really, thank you for the support!

 in response to Schmidty...   Hi Schmidty! Yes we would really appreciate any info you have. Nobody here in Oregon  seems to know anything. They just keep sending me in circles passing the buck. I also ran into some web sites that says you can get a poor, bad, or even a no credit score loan or mortgage and they name mortage companies like lending tree, wellsfargo, and yes good old bank of america but when you apply it is either payday loans for up to 1,500 or with the banks its right back to the 620+ credit score. So if you will please send me the info.

Some how I'm supposed to be coming up with $900 in a week to pay for a deposit on a new apartment. I have no idea how I'm supposed to do that. The new job I started only scheduled me for one day all next week. I don't even know if I'm gonna be able to keep that job when I move. I don't drive and there are no buses that can take me all the way out there. I thought it would be easy to find a new job downtown, but I haven't found anything yet. Guess I forgot I live in Michigan....

I went though the whole thing myself.

I can give you the address to applications for hud, they have more than one program and who ever told you that was right to a point, they like many others probably just didn't want to look or don't know, which they should, that there are other programs, through the USDA, and others.

Even running a small business online takes time. I've been listed for two months on Live Person as a tutor and have yet to have one student. I've listed actively for the last six months for tarot readings via online or in person, and most that come to me want these servicves for free. I would say it takes, as the professionals advise, at least three years to see any real profit from a home business. Or so that's what I've read on the business columns, etc. I certainly wish it was quicker, but I've not experienced this.

It does take months to began to see the result of blogging. But everyone has something to sell. Not your body either. Make crafts and sell them. The internet is the best place to start. I understand that this site is all about grants and fundraising. I know that some fundraising starts by selling what you have to raise money. What is your passion. Everyone has a gift. Sit and look inside your spirit and find the true you and chanage your world. Make videos on  create blog on . If you cannot do any of these things yourself find a friend who will help you create the new way to make some extra money. I am not saying you will be wealthy but at lease try something new. Faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen.  Faith does something it is a creative force.
