27 years ago I became homeless with my 2 young sons, I was in las vegas, had just come out of a real bad relationship and it came down to homeless was better then being with him. First I found a homeless shelter, showers and one meal a day available. Being in las vegas made it easier on me. First I could walk up to anyone and ask for change and get it, looking at the boys sends empathy to the hardest soul. Second I went into the casinos and looked at the machines no one was playing, many many people walk away from the credits, credits equal dollars. Once I had $20,00 I would go to freemont street where I could get a coupon book to which one specific coupon would give me $40,00 in play for $20,00 in cash, I put the $40,00 in play into the machine then immediately cashed it out. I would do this a few times and quickly salvaged enough money to get a weekly motel rental some food. Then I went and found a job at a fast food establishment, eventually saving enough to get into a small studio apartment, This all took about a month to get off the streets completely....it all worked out in the end.

Just a bit of advice, but it will not apply to everyone: go to another country and become an English teacher there. If you are a native English speaker, there will always be language schools willing to take you in.
You see, even with hardly any special skills you can still earn an honest living and be respectable.
Creativity is the key word here.
