I recently came out of PICU at a local hospital,but in CA they don't help u with housing,so now I'm looking for housing again.
One thing I do miss about the South is that they do help you with housing there,when you are in the hospital.
They really didn't tell me anything I didn't know except to remind me that my rootlessness adds to my depression. I've had this lack of safe housing since I moved to Cali. I love you guys and I'm always thankful for your support.

California has many terrible problems these days, one of them a terrible amount of homelessness, another is a $40 Billion budget deficit. There is a huge tent city going in Sacramento these days with several thousand people there. The Denver-area has a number of shelters and the Denver Rescue Mission is there, the Salvation Army has a shelter too, but Denver also has large numbers of homeless too. Unemployment in LA is around 9% and in Denver it is only 8%. You can buy a house in Flint, MI or Detroit for $10,000, but where would you get a job with unemployment there over 30%? Nevada has its problems with the homeless population there too.

I've heard that the economy is doing reasonably well in the area around Des Moines, Kansas City, and Omaha, in some parts of Texas, and some parts of the East Coast. Massachusetts is one of the most liberal States, another is Ohio. These links are off of Google under homeless support services in San Francisco.

They were hiring for airport security at Denver Int'l Airport recently. They had 300 positions to fill and 2500 people applied.

Good luck in your search.
