    I am an unemployed Single Mom of 1 Daughter. I have spent all my life savings and I have sold our only means of transportation just to keep a roof over our heads during this economical crisis. The only income I receive is TANF at an amount barely enough to pay utilities. I have been eagerly looking for employment but, have not been able to find gainful employment. This month, I was unable to make my rent payment and now my Daughter and I are facing an eviction in a matter of days. I cant afford to stay at my present location nor, can I afford to move…because, of no funds, family or help, I don’t have money for a moving truck/moving men.I have household items that are gonna be a challenge for me to left…ex: W/D, deep freezer, refrigerator, ect.,. I have called every kind of organization which claim to assist those in need to find out that there are no organizations which offer moving help to people facing economical hardships or getting evicted or whom may not have the ability to pay for conventional movers & their rates. All profit/ non profit organizations in my area say, that there are no funds available. I do not know where to turn for help. I have called numerous PHA in and near my area to try to get an affordable, subsidized housing, based on income to no prevail…all list are closed or there is a waiting list anywhere from 8 months – 8 years in the Georgia area…I just can’t afford to wait 8 years for affordable housing. I was told by a PHA, (when I called about Public Housing/ income – Based Rental….no section 8 / hcv) to go stay in a Homeless Shelter. Dang are thinhs that bad that the PHA refer needy families to shelters instead of helping them obtain safe, adecate and affordable housing? We (my child & I ) need immediate assistance. I understand that everyone is experiencing hardships in one form or another and everyone finances are tight but, I cant understand that there are no places for families to get or receive help and the only option is to have / leave a family homeless and on the streets.
