(I sent this to green doors as well)
Hi. I'm a 41 year old male. Single, no children, no criminal history, alcohol and drug free ,mentally composed and average able bodied. I tried the Front Steps/ The Arch/Salvation Army in downtown but it's more dangerous there to catch an airborne disease or getting attacked or robbed in your sleep there than one would be on a city bus stop bench or being attacked by a coyote in the woods. Plus there is a drug problem right outside their door which does help the situation any. I went to their processing for housing assistance to see if I can qualify but they said that I don't even come close because I don't have any of the above issues. You woulds think that they'd prioritize the women and children and sober and trouble free single men but the system implies that they put the opposite on the top of their priority list to help. (This world is backwards). I'm sending this email in the hopes that I can reach someone who can help me with housing while I keep looking for long term
work (gotta be clean and rested for employers). Thank you for consideration. ---Andre D.
