    I am a Black Male 53 years of age. I'm looking for shelter because I lost My home/apt. due to 6 months of incarceration. I have an income ($771.00) SSI and I would like to obtain shelter in Your program until I can save up some money to get My own apt. and pay off a substaintial Electric bill that continued while I was locked up ($800.00). I currently sleep at night at the royal oak Smart Bus transit center and a response from You as soon as possible will be greatly appreciated. Thank You.
