I live in CHARLOTTE NC with my husband and cant seem to find the right people or place charlotte people act like the homeless is a plague and are really refusing to help. This city is so sad to live in. If u all want a future do not come to charlotte and never go to the urban ministry they will get money for you and keep it for them selves the city needs to look into where that money is going for REAL

Lou is a 64 year old disabled lady that lives in an eastern state. She has not been on this site since 2005. Maybe you're thinking of someone else.

Go to your local DHS office, the place you get food stamps and ask for the local housing office, get on the list immediately for section 8 housing, there is always a waitlist. It may take time. Also local churches give food away once a week, be there early it goes fast. Good luck.

First, you go to your local DHS office, the place where you get food stamps and ask for info about the local Housing Works Authority, each state has a different name and different times of year for funding and help. Second get on the section 8 housing list immediately, always has a wait list. It is hard for a lot of people now, good luck.

Scoobysnack,

I am a living witness. If you begin to thank Jesus everyday for whatever you have (even if it is nothing but fresh air, water and sunshine or rain), He will help you. Most of the time we are so afraid that all we do is beg and cry. I have done plenty of that, and it took me a long time to learn what real gratitude and trust in God means. Just keeping thanking him Everyday for large or small things and then tell Him what you need (even though you cannot see it or how any idea how He will do what He will do. We cannot figure out how God will do what He will do, but He will surely come through. It might not be exactly in the form that you expect, but what you need will be provided.

He will bless you. Talk to him everyday no matter how bad things seem to be. We have to let God know that we trust Him in our darkest hour.

Thank you so much for writing and feel free to write again here or on the private one to one page.

I will join you in praying that God meets your needs. In Jesus' name.
