Support for James (Jimmy) Arnett

'm currently homeless and have been staying at shelters, with my sister's family, and at the VA hospital in Jackson, MS. I have been accepted to and just received a voucher fromm from the Jackson Housing Authority a voucher for section 8 housing. However  it's for.$567 and $667.dollarsand wouldn't get me a place close to transportation for a.job painting  If I can provide proof of income, I could get a higher voucher for better housing that would be closer to riding distance for a job. Ultimately  transportation is my key thing, heck I could even stay in it for a short time to save for housing if I had to. I can work, can have a job, and have a valid driver's license  I just don't have transportation or a place to stay for more than a few nights at a time. I'm not looking for a hand out as much as a hand up. 
How many have talked-about helping a friend, a.person,avteran (I served 7 months in '90-'91 during Operation Desert Shield/Storm)  Here is your chance, even if it is just by sharing. Thank you and i appreciate your help. Thanks and God bless you. I know many are in need yourselves and if you can't give even a dollar, would you please share so that maybe someone else could? Yes, it's slmost embarrassing to have to ask, but I do need help and thankfully I do get some care from the VA  but I need more. I was recently told I have 38% lung capacity  but I'm still trying and willing to work and think I'm able. I have some mental issues that are being addressed and I was just recently in the pain clinic for my back and knees. As I've said, if you can't give a dollar, please say a prayer and share. Also, considering contributing to the Gateway Rescue Mission in Jackson  MS. Thank you and God bless you.
