Let me get this straight:
You live alone in an apartment (at 17)
You have a Job making $8.00 an hour
You put 1/3 of your checks away
You are in college
So if you work 40 hours a week (which is generous considering your in college and a teenager) You would make $1280 a month (before taxes) you put a third of that away leaving you $853 a month.
So your claiming you pay Rent, Utilities, Insurance, Gas, Food, and whatever else on $853 a month.
Thats pretty impossible in todays society....care to enlighten us on your methods?

You have a credit card at 17?
I work in the F&I world, and at 17, credit companies cannot recover any losses, as you arent leaglly liable.
In other words.. I think what you mean is you have your parents credit card.
not your own.
CC companies do NOT issue Credit cards to Minors as primary cardholders.

You know, the dogs may serve as pillows, but its time for her to find them a home- she wouldnt have to feed them and the dogs could be happier.
She has kids, and sometimes you have to swallow your pride and go with your kids temporarily and make the best of it until she can get a little room.
I feel badly for her, but at the same time, she wants everyone to know she's a victim and wants not help but pitty.
God helps those who help themselves. The main thing is get rid of the dogs, because there isnt one apartment building or motel who will take them. I wonder if she's even tried a shelter for herself?
There are 12 parking lots across Santa Barbara that have been set up to accommodate the growing middle-class homelessness. These lots are believed to be part of the first program of its kind in the United States, according to organizers.
The lots open at 7 p.m. and close at 7 a.m. and are run by New Beginnings Counseling Center, a homeless outreach organization.

The tip of the iceberg. Where do you think the people go in the massive foreclosure crisis? To never never land? No. This is what happens. And it's only the start.

It's not so much the situation that so many homeless people are facing that is so discouraging to me, but rather the lack of empathy of the majority of the the people that have posted here.
