I was excited to find an organization that was starting up micro-housing in my area. But, on closer examination, this organization has no intention of housing the homeless, but putting portable housing units on private property and using them to rent “to low income people”. The person who runs this program told me it WAS NOT intended for homeless individuals, BUT when interviewed on the news, he claimed the program was to relieve homelessness in our area. Two faced!

Recently something popped up in the newspaper. Homeless people can not qualify for Housing First because the state discarded many homeless individuals ID information when they dismantled camps and threw possessions away. What idiots run this state!
Yes, I have to admit it. When the weather is just right and I am not being called to work everyday (and weeks drag on like that) I go homeless to save money on rent. If I could get low-income housing in my area, that would be a big help. But, no one has told me the magic words to say to obtain that sort of favor from the powers that be (I’ve been on the waiting list for nearly 5 years).
Even if not having a bed to sleep on is not a hardship for me, not having a stove to cook on is. There is nothing like a chicken, baked at home. Hmmmm.
