I'm currently residing in my car...initially by force but now more of a choice. I would like to live in a more comfortable environment b/c my body isn't happy in the car. I'm not sure if the squatter life is what I'm looking for; but, I know something must change b/c it's hard to live and have basic needs met right now!

I was houseless in NC in 2013. All I have to say about that is the IRC in GSO helped immensely. Wish I coulda stayed out there. Friendly folx, genuine hospitality & radical spaces provided a real easy vibe. I miss GSO.

Hello Scum Rag!
Thanks for your reply. I didn't know what the IRC was but like most people do now I googled it lol. This place sounds like what I've been saying they need here in Charlotte! At first glance I thought it was like the Urnan Ministry here but they only open twice a day for food and taking care of basic needs (i.e shower, wash clothes, etc.). I sure wish I had somewhere to go during the day rather than sitting in a parking lot in my car! Idk if you saw my YouTube link but check out my videos on homelessness here. I'm not sure if we're allowed to post links so just look up Kiki onthestreetz if you don't see the link.
If you don't mind me asking...why did you leave NC if you liked it so much?

The healthcare. Plain & simple. I have epilepsy & the social worker at Cone told me point blank, "Why don't you go back to California where people have empathy?"

That kinda sold me on it.

I'll check the link in a minute... Thanks :)

    More Info

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
$90.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    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
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    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
    $90.00 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
    $90.00 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.
