Please join us in congratulating Jason today for ending his homeless situation. Jason has been homeless for more than 8 years, living in his van and at shelters. He’s now in a situation where he can afford rent, so we were happy to help him gain permanent housing by paying his security deposit. Read his story below.
I became homeless due to many circumstances. One being that experienced a mental bipolar 1 meltdown that was exacerbated by having a 40 hr swing shift that i thought I could handle. My living arrangements didn’t permit me to sleep during the day causing me insomnia. I eventually had to leave the job due to too many sick days off. I had plantar fasciitis at the time. I had painful condition in my right foot that caused me to call in sick at my job too many times. I had no idea that I had the foot condition. So I lost my job and in turn lost my apartment as a result. I have been homeless for more than 8 years living out of my van and the Fullerton Ca National Guard armory and Bridge’s Homeless Shelter from time to time. It has been a traumatic life for me. I’m currently going through laser eye surgery to remove glaucoma and fast moving cataracts at Atlantas Eye Center. I currently work a part time during the weekend. I need a better living situation So I can take on a full time job. I currently been living at Bridges Homeless Shelter Since April of 2018. I have until October 2018 to find permanent housing. I have been selected out of a lottery to have the opportunity to move into an apartment. I have signed the lease and need assistance for the deposit. I sincerely appreciate it if you would give me assistance into this transition in my life.
Thank You, Jason
