Re: “Reader: Just go somewhere else

Also if you are a refugee step right up the! Catholic charities will give you a place to live ,pay your bills , clothe you , and help you get a job and feed you ,you just can't be from this country , Being an American disqualifies you ,but they might give you food ,plus Being from another country means no waiting to get help everything is waiting for you when you arrive , this is all planed and paid for before you get off the plane .America what a country !!!!!

Re: “Reader: Just go somewhere else

I'M homeless as of today, IT all started when we had the big wind storm in January of last year.I had an ap apartment the wind blew a large amount of shingles off the roof ,I begged my landlord to fix the roof before the next snow/rain storm as my bedroom ceiling would fall in on me ,The landlord just flat out REFUSED TO fix the roof and evicted me instead I had been in that house for 30 years I had recived a retaliation eviction , I had no problem fixing anything that needed repairs as long as it was at or below the cost of the rent but A new roof was more then i could swing plus I susspect the house was not insured so would have cost quite a bit to fix , now the. City has posted notices on the door and nothing is fixed a year later.
I have a night time job and have been looking for a new place but the rent prices at just to high for me to afford especially with my job cutting hours. And adding more stress to my and others situation
I m. Not a drug user or a drinker I don't have pets or small kids ,I just want a place with no bugs and no gangs some place quite . I now only eat food that doesn't require cooking or refrigeration i don't eat much fast food ,mostly p b j and cereal it sucks living this way being alone is really hard and suicide has occupied most of my thoughts lately
Because I've lost all hope and my self ,the hopelessness is just to heavy for me to carry any more.
The tears seem to never stop and holding it together at work is near impossible so I live in the edge of loosing that to. I have no insurance , but this is just my situation.
There are many homeless people who are on a fixed income and can't find a place to live in this town it's just impossible the landlords just want to much money ,it's so sad that the poor are being kicked to the curb look at the seniors who were evicted last month ware are they to go ?? There are many with mental illness where are they to go ?? There are many homeless vets where are they to go ?? And if those on a fixed income do manage to find a place the place they do find will take EVERY PENNY they have . SO YES HOMELESSNESS IS A HUGE PROBLEM IN THIS TOWN AND ACROSS THIS COUNTRY , BUT NO ONE WANTS TO OFFER AFFORDABLE HOUSING THEY ARE MORE INTERESTED IN MAKING A HUGE PROFIT THEN HELPING THERE FELLOW CITIZENS SERVIVE
WE HAVE EVOLVED INTO A SOCIETY WHERE BEING HEARTLESS IS THE NEW NORM ,IT'S EVOLVED INTO A RICH KILL THE POOR SICK AND ELDERLY , MANY ARE JUST ONE PAY CHECK OR LIFE EVENT AWAY FROM HOMELESSNESS AS SAVING FOR A RAINY DAY IS NOT POSSIBLE ANY MORE , NO ONE WANTS TO BE HOMELESS ,IT'S NOW A CLASS OF PEOPLE INSTEAD OF A TEMPORARY SITUATION ,WHAT HAPPENED TO AMERICA ??? EVERY TIME YOU SEE A HOMELESS PERSON IT'S A REFLECTION OF WHAT OUR SOCIETY HAS BECOME ,THE REMINDER OF GREED , CORRUPTION , AND HEARTLESNESS WE SHOULD BE ASHAMED BUT NO ONE IS . WE JUST LOOK THE OTHER WAY OR SAY WHAT A PROBLEM IT IS BUT THE ONES WHO COULD HELP (THE LANDLORD S. ) SIMPLY DON'T CARE AT ALL , SO IF YOUR GOAL IS TO GET RID OF THE HOMELESS LET ME STEP UP I'LL SET THE EXAMPLE TAKE ME OUT FIRST I WHOLE HEARTEDLY , VOLUNTEER TO BE FIRST IN LINE IT WOULD BE MY BLESSING TO SACRIFICE MY SELF FOR THE GOOD OF ALL

Re: “Mayor to announce new homeless plan

He will make sure everything is well out of town and impossible for the walkers to get to ,and well out of sight of common folk,wouldn't want the well to do to be offended by the sight of the homeless. how about creating some jobs in this dead town and give them a job, sad theres no one to care about bringing companies to town, so lets spend mony on the city of champions instead of offering tax breaks to move jobs here so so sad
