I've happened to visit these respites time after time to get a break from a lot of personal pain.
Luckily I do have a place to live. (funny I never thought I'd say that.)
I see many "people" I don't know it seems like they come from shelters, are former drug users, have boyfriends in jail, etc.
One girl was "kicked out" today...because her stay was up. She seems like a nice girl. She likes to sing and she's a pretty 24 yr old. She said she was attacked by a man sexually at a shelter and that's where she has to go back to.
Yeah, thanks. I was worried about her, but I know I myself cannot offer her help w/ housing, I can't have a person who uses drugs or has these kinds of problems in my home. I wish her the best . I think what you said is on the money about people like that who need to improve to be stable enough to live on their own.
