Hi my name is Elissa. I’m a mom of 2 amazing kids and we are in need of some help. We don’t have a place to call home. Trying to find somewhere to stay, to work and save money for deposits is not working out at all. I have a job, I can afford my bills, but to come up with a deposit for electric, water, and the initial security deposit it’s self all up front on top of paying rent to stay somewhere, gas for the car, personal hygiene, and now the kids are out growing all their clothes, I’m broke and homeless. I had been out of work for a bit because I have level 1 SLAP tears in both my shoulders and the pain in beyond bareable most of the time. Doctors tell me I’m too young for surgery and I do NOT take any medicine for the pain outside of lidocaine patches. I’m back to working and I need to get the kids and I into a home ASAP. There isn’t any room at any shelter here in Az and I’m told the wait list is forever long. I can’t live in the car any longer, I can’t cry myself to sleep anymore knowing I’m failing my children cause I can’t make enough money at once to get us in somewhere. I’m raising them alone. And even though it’s tough I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world. I don’t ask anyone for anything. But I really need help with this. I don’t know what else to do.
Most low income apartments have waiting lists. Some of these lists can take years until you can be called for openings. The key is to try to get on as many waiting lists as possible.
