My husband died three years ago and I have been homeless for six months

“My husband died three years ago and I have been homeless for six months. I have looked everywhere for a job. When you are a housewife and mother all of your life, you don’t have skills and my husband wanted me to stay home with the kids. One is a missionary in Belize, one serves overseas in the military and another is a youth pastor. He has a child of his own and they are struggling too. I don’t want to burden my children.”

“My car was stolen so I am riding the bus and trying to find work. This is my first time to come to 15 Place and I was hoping they could help me find a job and into a shelter. Sometimes I stay in the woods in Tillman’s Corner, sometimes I sleep on the sofa at a friend’s house. I hope I am not too late for them to help me. It is dangerous for women on the streets and we can’t hide. They think you are a prostitute of a drug addict. I am a Christian and I won’t do either one of those. I will go back to the woods and stay there until I find a job. I had quit smoking but in the last week I started it up again. The stress gets to you. We need a place like this to help us get jobs and off the streets. I want to work. I don’t want to be homeless.”
