    Can you provide me with any resource on returning to my home state of Georgia? I am homeless in New Jersey. The social services office here is so rude and so not helpful at all.

    My Story Living in a my car and managing through a broken social services system
    I came from a happy but dysfunctional family. My father died when I was in college, no one ever talked about the grief (to this day I wonder how much of me died that day also.). I graduated college during a recession and “career” jobs were tough to find. I settled on a number of other
    “jobs” until I got a break working a 2 decent paying job in a different city (than I was living in), so I moved (not having my father around for career advise also hurt). I got caught up in the
    life style that these new jobs afforded me, and ended up losing one of them and finally had to declare bankruptcy. (I was working 2 part-time jobs, volunteering at 2 different places (National Zoo and a Pet adoption center, and going to community college part-time. It
    left little personal time for myself, but I loved it and it was the happiest time of my life) by the time my bankruptcy was through, I had lost my apartment. Fortunately I reaffirmed the car loan and began living in my car.
    After about 3 months of living in my car I got a section 8 voucher (which I never ended up using and eventually lost, but came close to using a couple of times.). When you get a higher paying job [more income in the month] (the Housing Authority bases your rent on the
    income for 1 month). When I got a higher paying job and put an application in for an
    apartment, the property management company took 2 weeks on the application and
    another 2 weeks on the references. After the 4 weeks my income no longer qualified for a section 8 voucher. I ended up losing the higher paying job due to my hours getting cut and went back to living in my car. I used to have a twitter account but it got suspended for “suspicious” activity” (I was
    campaigning for Conor Lamb and posting those ads on other threads. Yes homeless people can be politically active.). One time on twitter I posted a birthday card to Bill Gates (it was around the time Jeff Bezsos had just overtaken Bill wealth wise). I remember thinking to myself after I posted the card if I only had $15.00/hr. full-time job that would be my big break and I wouldn’t have to deal with social services, live in my car, etc. In a later post on twitter to Mr. Gates
    I thanked him for all his philanthropic work (I would also thank Social Services and the churches that supported me, but it’s not like being independent.). For 3 months last winter I stayed at a cold weather shelter (when I went to a food pantry I ended up donating the food to the shelter. My way of give back to the people who have helped me.).
    In the time since, I have developed some health problems (I had to give up a couple of jobs because of them.). I went to DORS (Dept. of Rehabilitative Services), where I found out I wasn’t “disabled enough” (just one more crack that I have fallen through).
    My current situation is I’m in low-income housing, unemployed with no money, behind on my car payment, but I am still up beat. If people want to know how Job can still have faith after losing everything it’s because material things can be replaced and life is what you make it.
    My Christmas wish is for a $15.00/hr. full-time job. I am jeopardy of losing my car (I am behind on my car payments, I haven’t worked in 2 months). The loss of my car would be a great impediment to finding a job that would help me get out of my situation. I have started volunteering at a non-profit in my city. It feels good to give back again. I want to work my way through this.

    God bless you all and thank you for taking the time to read my story.
