‚ÄčAlright this is how I think it would have helped me out to have you guys first of all ima tell you my story. I moved out of my parents’ house about week before I turned 18. Cause of stuff I don’t want to talk about and I went to stay with my girlfriend I stayed there for about 4 months maybe 5. Then I moved to Ohio with my sister I was very depressed because I left my friends and most of all I left the love of my life. Then about 3 weeks of being up there with my sister I got a job and started working making pretty good money and then I tried to go back to school in Ohio and I found out I couldn’t go to school they wanted let me go. So then I I dropped out of school and worked for about worked for about 6 months got a car then I realize I need to go back to school so I moved back to Harlan Kentucky to my girlfriends and went back to school then one night me and her mom started to get into it and I had to move again and then I went to stay with my buddy and that’s how I became homeless cause I couldn’t go back to my dad’s cause the same stuff would happen to me that happen before so I started going back fourth from friends house sleeping in my car most nights for about 2 or 3 months then I got Gina Stewart to help me get an apartment and Mr. pace helped me out and got me clothes and soap and stuff like that but Gina got me a apartment after a while and I got to move in and I’ve been doing ok so far just my next goal is to get a job. The CHHAR program would have helped me out I wouldn’t have had to go from home to home and sleeping in my car for 2 or 3 months I would have had a bed to sleep on instead of the backseat of my car or the floor of my buddy’s house and am grateful your helping people now.
