    I have placed myself in harms way by moving in with a man that shows PTSD, former drug user and now abuses alcohol. I am feeling stressed out, depressed and anxiety is real bad. I need a place to go very soon. I am looking for help. I am in your system for the food pantry. I need assistance with finding a place. Please help me before I decide to hurt myself to get away from my current situation.

    Good morning, my name is Sarah Cooper, and I am in dire need of immediate shelter and permanent supportive housing. I am a 67 yr old disabled, and retired female with critical homelessness from pillow to post for about 12 yrs. I am requesting help from any resources you have, in order to stabilize my living conditions, which are not conducive to my health conditions. I look forward to hearing from someone to further address my concerns. Thanking you in advance for any help that would stabilize my living conditions as soon as possible. Ms. Sarah Cooper
