Why I'm using HandUp for homegoods.

I just moved into housing! It is great but I need pots and pans and a rice cooker. I can't cook in my place because I need these things so I'm struggling to pay my rent. If you have anything to spare please help, I'm working hard to maintain my housing but just need a little help so I can.

About me.

I am 57 years old. I have lived in and out of San Francisco / Los Angeles are for over 25 years. I had been living in the streets off and on for over forty years since I was 15 years old. I am a coordinator of art shows and other venues. I also volunteer with Lava Mae and enjoy giving back to the community. I am working on getting things in order in my life and learning what services I am eligible for.

My backstory.

In the beginning of 2014 I was injured on my job, became disabled and was released from my job. I had to turn to public benefits to meet my basic needs. I lost everything, apartment, belongings, money, and any sense of hope regarding the situation.

My goals, moving forward.

I really want to succeed now. I have secured better housing but still hope to pursue volunteer work and giving back to the community.

I am also working on a book of homeless services so that I can pass this book out to the homeless. This I believe will be a more comprehensive way to inform the homeless.

Other things I'd like to share about myself.

I like to help, cook, visit those in need; this makes me very happy.
