    Hello. My name is Rachael. I have struggled for many years with homelessness. I have no income. I am @my breaking point because I am so tired of homelessness. I feel like I want to go live outside because the non-structured environment @the shelter I am staying at makes it very difficult to get rest to feel encouraged to work on goals. I will be 55 in November this year. I want to be in a place of my own. Thank-you.
