Why I'm using HandUp for dental care.

I am planning to move to Anchorage, Alaska soon and am working with my case manager to establish housing! Currently I have an outstanding dental bill that I need to pay off before I move. This will support me with keeping my credit in good shape and can help me with moving forward with getting dental care in my new home!

About me.

I'm not a Bay Area gal but I am from a small city in Georgia where peaches and oranges may be grown in one of the hottest fields there. I was there since a teenager. I was always surrounded by female Christian leaders in my family. I came to San Francisco in 2015 hoping to become an extra in a film. In the workforce, I have done babysitting, house sitting, growing gardens and flowers, food, and more.

My backstory.

I was diagnosed as having Bipolar III due to a seriously abusive relationship with someone who treated me badly. I have been experiencing homelessness since 2000 and would like to try to move forward with my goals in reconnecting with friends and family and rebuilding my social networks.

My goals, moving forward.

One of my goals is to reconnect with friends and family and move forward with keeping my personal issues at a punch. I also hope to re-establish my social networks. I would like to do more showing up for myself instead of making phone calls and be more present.

Other things I'd like to share about myself.

I would like to have a home and big open space where I can have my loved ones together. I also hope to sleep better at night. I am proud of being able to walk up those steep hills in San Francisco. It is a big accomplishment and reflective of life. If I can get past this hurdle, I can get past many.
