Hello —
I’m writing as a last resort for help. I’m a 15 year old girl, 10th grade. I don’t know what else to do, me & my mother have tried so many things to get help. We live in Atlanta which is bountiful with homeless people. As of right now we are living in a truck in a parking lot with very little to eat. My mother was involved in Abuse and had to act quickly to escape with us, we’ve been hopping states to live in, in hopes to find somewhere cheap and with work and stuff but there’s literally been no luck. She has worked manual labor for upwards of $9 an hour and we lived in Section 8 about 6 months ago but it started hurting her so much physically and she worked about 100 hours a week. She did a lot of over time so me and my little brother could get the correct school supplies, medications, and clothes. But things took a big turn and everything went bad. I’m very desperate. These kinds of things never work, not because I don’t believe in it but because I feel very guilty asking for help. My mom is almost 40 and she never feels good, I’m turning sixteen in 2 weeks and I hope I can find a job because I called everywhere near me but they only take 16-18 and they told me to come back once I turn sixteen. I’m not asking for money. I’m not asking for a life lesson for my mother because believe me I know. I just need help. Anything. Thank you so much.❤️

Honestly, you sound plenty strong already. It's incredible your family has escaped abuse and are working to build a life on your own. I hope you can continue to lift one another up. Don't be ashamed to rely on one another. Maybe look into shelters instead of the truck? And since your birthday is soon, you'll be able to chip in by getting a job. It's nowhere near ideal, but you can escape this rough patch. It's a feasible chance. Please keep your chin up. And have a happy birthday!
