Homeless In The Cold

Homeless In The Cold

From Travis Clary

Last year at this time, I was homeless. I was living/sleeping on the sidewalks. Every morning, I would hit the streets going from business to business trying to find some work. It was hard, because I had no ID.

Just wanted to update the status. The place I am currently living, the lady wants me out, so I am officially homeless once again. I have come too far in the past year! I haven't made it this far just to have my feet kicked out from under me. I'm going to keep pressing forward, but I can't do it alone. I just need to come up with this down payment and I'll be set.

Help me not to be homeless again!

Last year at this time, I was homeless.  I was living/sleeping on the sidewalks.  Every morning, I would hit the streets going from business to business trying to find some work.  It was hard, because I had no ID.  In order to get an ID, you have to have a physical address.  I finally got in touch with a homeless shelter that allowed me to use their address as a mailing address so that I could get my driver's license.  A week or so later, I found someone that would give me a job.  I began working 7 days a week 14 - 15 hours a day.  I vowed to myself that I was not going to be homeless for long.  After working for several months, I got another job that I am now able to get benefits with.  Its been nearly a year that I have been with this Company.  Its been almost a year and a half since my homelessness began.  I have finally found myself in a situation where I can start looking for a place I can actually call home.  I started looking for homes for sale, and came across several that I liked.  I started the process and was approved for an FHA Mortgage Loan.  The issue I now face is the 3.5% down payment I have to make.  Everything else, I am able to do.  I need to come up with $5,000 to cover my down payment.  I was just homeless, so I don't have money like that just laying around.  My mom is 70 years old and is experiencing the early stages of dementia, and she will be living with me as well.  The place that I found is just perfect for the circumstances.  I submitted an offer and received a counter offer.  We came to an agreement and we are supposed to sign the paperwork soon.  I cannot do this alone.  I would ask Mom for help but her funds were used after a hospital stay.  Any and all help is very greatly appreciated.  I will give periodic updates as time goes by.  Thank you and God Bless!!
