Help me get a place to stay

Project by Simon Summerfield

1) I would like to be able to have a safe place to sleep at night, and no nightmares! 2) To allow me to go to interviews dressed smartly.

Unfortunately, this project was not successful

mostly these last 5 years or so it has been call center work. Primary IT support, which I enjoy a lot. Moved back to my father's house at 36 due to mental health reason which lead my to quit my full time job I had been doing for over four years. Had a few arguements over time. Came back from a long run, found my bags outside and the door locked. Been homeless ever since.


I do still get a bit of cash off the government but not enough for housing, only food and basic stuff like toothbrush and toothpaste, etc.


I have a phone that is my lifeline as it stops me from going insane. I can charge it up each day, which helps to make me get up each morning too. I enjoy gaming online with the PS4. I had to sell it. Along with almost everything I had ever owned just to survive. Almost a year now and I'm still trying to find somewhere to live and looking for employment daily. Winter is the worst. Temperatures last year went down to -4. 

Summer is not too bad I guess. But I still look on in envy at everyone else who have almost no idea I am homeless. 


So yeah, I think that just about summarizes me in up a few paragraphs. If the project is successful I will update on how I am going and what I plan to do next. Thanks.
