In the last 3 years, I have lived in my car a;l around the country, I've couch surfed, done multiple work trades and got lured into fake caretaking positions, I've lived in my storage unit, a dog shed, a tool shed and a tent for the winter in the snowy cold mountains. During this time I went from healthy, to sick to regaining much of my health back again.
Before that I was volunteering to help the homeless for 3 decades.
I hold a Phd. I've started multiple businesses and community groups.
I KNOW what it takes to help homeless people. I've lived it.
Now for those of you that say you want to help the homeless....definitely not just me as I'm specifically referring to your neighbors, these are some ways that can REALLY help someone get their life back.
My phone overheated and shut down so I had to do the second part the following day, but this is some advice for you helpers out there that don't know where to start in your mission of spreading love to us invisible people that have been cast out of society.
and here is part 2, which pretty much sums up most of the first and finishing the rest of my list:
I hope this helps you help others in a more tangible and effective way. :-)
Blessings and Love,
Just a homeless chick in Washington with the ability to form words sometimes.
