I know thats a huge issue right now in boston because the T isnt even running half the time and its a bitch to even get around in all this snow. If I had any money id buy a plane ticket somewhere south but i don't at the moment. I might end up just taking some benzos and go into a detox to get to a TSS to wait out the winter. Either way things aren't looking too good.

I think the detox route may be a decent idea especially if you have addiction problems that lead to this new found homelessness. I wish I found treatment sooner!

check out youth on fire, it's a drop in center in cambridge, I see from your info you're young enough to go in. they can help you with warm gear and you can meet other homeless kids who can potentially show you a spot to stay. also they have food and toiletries/medical supplies and you can hang out in there during the week when they're open and stay warm. they're closed on weekends so you gotta wait until monday but here's a link to their facebook https://www.facebook.com/YouthOnFireMA

hope this helps.

I've actually been on the suboxone clinic for almost a year now so I've been clean from everything except a little pot. I was living at home with my parents and when i got fired from my job I got kicked to the streets. I was only thinking about detox because they send you to a tss for up to 6 months so you get 3 squares a day, a hot shower, and a warm bed.

I actually went to a treatment center for 6 months up in Alpine once just to avoid the streets. I actually didn't have a drug addiction but it was my way of working the system. I had a blast and was on good terms till I got into transitional housing. Good advice!

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$10.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $10.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $10.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $10.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $10.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
