Homelessness
by: Sandra (Aunt Sandy)

Though, you do not comment about parents, you remark they are not there for you. Is this because of thier own choices, or did you run away? I assume, not being able to enroll with out an address, into public school.
I also assume this is where you are able to be on-line. Your first action needs to be to contact your school officals, and explain to them your needs. As some has told you, there are multitudes of people out here, willing to help. But, you have to take the first step, and go directly to those who can help.

I have lived house form house with family memebers and currently I was living with my mom. Due to that I don't get along with her and she doesn't either with since we haven't lived together she has two other daughers with my stepdad she want me to pay rent or move out. Not just that but hurts me mentally by the way she treats me and talks to me I have no where to go and if I stay at my house I know I'm going to actually commit suicide it isn't the first. Time ithink of it yet I want to know if there's help out there for me
