PTSD about to be homeless, wondering where the best place is that I could go on the mainland. Survivable climate, homeless resources, don't want to be murdered.

Seattle seems to be one of the best,judging by the influx.On a serious note though.If you want the help and will jump through the hoops Seattle has some really good stuff.Plenty of shelters,plenty of aid,and a really good program called Fare Start.Also Boise(even though I bitch about it) is another one where if you want to help yourself there are programs.Just my 2 cents on it and welcome.

Sorry about not providing much information. I had a long message typed up but the forum wouldn't allow it to be posted (SPAM filter or something). I am currently in Phoenix. I was in Hawaii off and on for the last couple of years. Hawaii is probably the best as far as helping homeless but I am afraid of getting stranded there. Claustrophobic feeling.

I plan on filing for disability. I need to decide where to do that at. Hawaii is the best state for that but would rather be on the mainland, if possible.

I will look into Seattle. Thanks for the feedback.

Homeless orgs are pretty good on helping in Hawaii. I know that various places there, the cops and a lot in the government hate homeless. My thinking is that if I convince them that once I successfully get disability, I will move from the island to the mainland, it might escalate things.

to be honest by yer original post im not sure if the help i would offer is what yer looking for. im not a big shelter person because in my experience they are often full of people ide rather avoid. theres threads on similiar subjects i suggest using the search feature to maybe find what yer looking for.

Denver is a good launch pad as well. Good luck

I've only heard bad things about Denver and spent last summer living north of there, Fort Collins. FC isn't bad but I'm not sure how big of a city you're looking for. You may be paying too much attention to the horror stories of the life as evidenced by 'not wanting to be murdered'. I'm sure that happens but it's not like it's common. You can make it anywhere you want to go, it just takes time to figure things out. I don't do shelters based solely on what I've heard about them through first hand accounts but, just like most things, I would think some of them are better than others. Good luck!

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
$20.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $20.00 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
    $20.00 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
    $20.00 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
    $20.00 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.
