I'm literally one step from becoming homeless because I can't pay my rent this month due to a traffic ticket I got. I haven't been able to find work because even though I have a Master's degree in counseling psychology, I'm not licensed yet. In order to work as a mental health therapist you have to be licensed. It would take me 3 years and 3000 hours, etc to get licensed, and I have to pay my rent now. I tried asking my mom ( who is my one and only family member), and she is a senior citizen who is living in her car and also sometimes depending on me to help her. I asked some of my friends for help, but they're struggling to pay rent this time too. The difference is that I have literally no place to go or stay because my one and only family member can't contribute to rent. I really need help this time. Please find it in your heart to save an intelligent, kind/caring, knowledgeable, diligent, and helpful individual from the traumatic life of homelessness.
