YES YOU READ THAT HEADLINE RIGHT! I FOUND MYSELF IN THE THROWS OF POVERTY DUE TO A VERY BITTER DIVORCE. DEALT WITH THE DIVORCE LOSING EVERYTHING INCLUDING MY CAR (ATTORNEYS COST MONEY) Could not afford attorney so lost by default. AFTER LOSING MY CAR LOST MY JOB WHICH MEANS LOST MY HOME.
So now lets go back to the part of losing my job due to no transportation. My credit by this time had become useless. So I went to Catholic Charities (which offered me a meal) this is nice, went to Salvation Army was offered food, this again is nice, do you see a pattern here yet? Went to Community Presbyterian to fill out a request for transportation for work ( you see you have to have open availability for work ), well needless to say never heard back from them. The pattern you see is not to help those get out of their situation but to keep them there with here is a meal (yes again nice gesture) what about self sufficiency or the willingness to work are we to be destined to be part of a street culture, is this really where you want your donated dollars to go? I need a car to get to work and not be part of a culture you donations actually go to. So if by chance there is some one willing to give me this opportunity I will pay out of each pay check to you for this opportunity!! Not asking for charity but the opportunity to get on my feet!! Have a job offer!!
Still no car for work!
