Qualifications

In 2008 I found myself a single mom.  The economy had just tanked and I couldn't find a job.  So with no job, no child support and a newborn to take care of life got even worse.  I went from living a life I was happily creating a year and a half ago to standing in line at the department of social services for food stamps, for energy assistance to keep my lights and heat on and WIC to have nutritional food to feed my child.  The very lowest point was when I could no longer afford to pay my rent and I entered a rental assistance program.  Every other week I had to drive to a homeless shelter and sit with people who were even more down on their luck to see my case worker in order for my rent to be paid.  In what felt like the blink of an eye, I had gone from climbing to my mountain top to being in the bowels of depression.  It was at this moment that I realized that everybody has a story and can fall so far from who they once were.
