While I search for housing, I am looking for extra support to purchase food and clothing. I hope folks can get behind me with support for this goal, and my quest to secure housing. Thank you for your support!
Hi, I'm Stanley; I am originally from Oakland but have lived in San Francisco thirteen years. I am currently disabled with a bad back, and diabetes but my employment background is in janitorial maintenance service, and I did this work for twenty years. I moved to San Francisco hoping for better opportunities. Currently, I vend Street Sheet newspapers to get information out to the public about the homeless situation, and the support provides me with one or two dollars a day.
I grew up in Oakland and have experienced a lot of violence in my life. I lost six brothers and one sister to acts of violence, and I have personally been shot at as well. Although I have worked in Janitorial services for years the pay was always very low, and housing became more difficult to secure until eventually, I could not afford rent. In addition, the company I worked for went out of business.
I recently moved into permanent housing and am enjoying getting to know my new community. It has been a struggle trying to secure housing in San Francisco. That has been a full-time goal up until this point. Now that I have roof over my head I can start working towards a brighter future.
I love games of all kinds, including cards, chess, and dominoes. One day I would love to meet Bill Gates.
I'm raising money for a power chair so I can take care of the things that life has in store for me to do.
I'm raising money for a bike so I can have have transportation to school and retraining classes.
I'm raising money for food so I can support myself with day to day food needs.
