Trying to survive

Crime happens everywhere, even in upper class areas. Higher crime rates occur among the homeless, and most of the victims don't report them. I know you'd prefer to live in a safer neighborhood, but you really don't have much choice at this moment in your life, do you? I am low income and have lived in high crime areas most of my life. I would prefer to live in a better neighborhood but due to poor choices as a young adult (not getting a higher education for one when I could have with family to lean on. Now...pfft), and serious injuries due to a few car accidents, with no close family members to lean on for financial or emotional support and other issues,yet here I am... Alive and well in the 'hood. And have never been robbed or had a home invasion. The slow as hell dino pc I use was bought from the Goodwill and my neighbor is kind enough to let me piggy back on his wifi, before that I used the library to access the internet, though it usually has a time limit, unless the library isn't busy and the librarian disables time limit. And yes, Im quite aware unemployment only takes applications online, as most buisnesses now do. The work force center (unemployment) allows you to come in and use their pc's to apply for jobs during buisness hours with no time limits. And 7 hours a month to make important, not personal, calls to agencies is enough. Barely, but enough. Metro Mobility offers bus rides (usually 75 each way) to the disabled and the elderly to go wherever they want to go, whether it be grocery shopping, hair salons, Unemployment/ Work Force Center, dr. appts., etc., and they pick you up and drop you off at home. I understand and sympathize with what you're going through. Some of it is just bad luck, the cards life dealt to you and some of it is due to your own bad choices and being picky when you're in no position to be picky. Like a poster said above "woulda, coulda, shoulda"... It's time to stop making excuses and work with the cards you were dealt. Your choice having a roof over your head in a high crime area until you can supplement your SSI/SSD income with employment and afford better or be homeless and live in fear of being victimized 24/7 whether on a street or in a shelter or become extremely ill or die due to being exposed to the elements while living on the street. Which is most likely going to happen if you don't get yourself on a waiting list... I hope you choose wisely. I don't want you to suffer needlessly.  (May 20, 2013 | post #187)

Trying to survive

Not to be mean, but as heartless as your surviving family members are for not taking you in in your time of need, you are, as an adult, are not their responsibility. YOU are responsible for yourself and the predictament that you are now unfortunately in. You say you've checked into the subsidized housing programs a few years ago and the only things available were in a high crime area, so you chose to not follow through. Ok. Then your mother passed 17 MONTHS AGO and your circumstances changed. If it was me, knowing I had no family support or the financial means to save my home from foreclosure, I would have recontacted Human Services and got myself put on the waiting list asap and if things improved before something became available, I would have at least covered my ass by having it as a back up. Seems to me living in a high crime area would be preferable than living on the street in a "nicer" area. Life isn't fair for sure and hard, especially if you are disabled and low income, but it seems you are your worst enemy by being picky where you live when your income doesn't afford you that choice. I suggest you apply for that subsidized housing asap and in the meantime check out your local shelters and "pick" out the one in the nicest neighborhood for you to live in while on that waiting list. I also suggest you skip paying $50+ a month for your cell phone and go with the free ceell phone offered by the government and use the cash for food or a mini fridge or whatever else you may be in need of. I really am sorry about your circumstances. Hope they improve.  (May 20, 2013 | post #180)
