There is only so much job hunting with the little money homeless people get. It's $140.00 bucks a month. Can't look for a job on that.
I've been homeless long enough to know that %60 of the people that are homeless are well dressed normal educated people that don't dare let anyone know because it will make things worse.
A little homeless tip. Never rely on a homless shelter. They are full of crazies, it is unsanitary and you can kiss getting a job good bye! I've been a hiring manager and there is this little dirty secret that noone will admit to.

Or did she kick you out for a behavioral issue? Cause it's only gonna get worse before it gets better, if she did.
Get a tent and a sleeping bag. Got a knapsack?
No, the sooner you get off the streets the better. It's a hard life and the streets not something on the outside, it crawls under your skin the longer your there. Economy's going downhill, the more support you have starting out the better.
Through the Inner City Youth Housing Project Five homes, Bissell Centre and three other community agencies operate housing for 20 at-risk youths between the ages of 16 and 18 in Edmonton's inner city. The aim of the project is to provide a stable environment where youths are encouraged to lead productive lifestyles.
The Inner City Pastoral Ministry, an ecumenical church, holds weekly Sunday services at Bissell Centre. Services are followed by a lunch prepared and served by volunteers. The Ministry's staff also offers pastoral and spiritual care.
For more information about Bissell Centre's special projects, or to help by donating time or resources, contact Ele Gibson at (780) 423-2285 ext. 142
