Hanging out in local parks

June 29th, 2011 | Posted by Carey Fuller in Homelessness - (1 Comments)

It’s funny how while you’re on your journey through life, you end up meeting people that are willing to tell you their story. While in Auburn, I took my youngest daughter to a park and once there, Maggie befriended three red-headed children varying in ages and their mother. You mothers out there know that while …

What I did today….

June 28th, 2011 | Posted by Carey Fuller in Homelessness - (0 Comments)

    I’ve spent the last few days cleaning out the storage unit I’ve had ever since the day I moved into and RV back in 2004. I think it’s a good move for now since it is costing me $120.00 a month that I don’t have. I’d rather spend that money keeping the mini-van’s …

While trying to down size my storage unit, I’ve been taking stuff to a friend’s house in Fremont to sell at weekend yard sales. On the way back from one of those trips, I noticed my front tires making funny wobbling sounds. At first I thought I was getting a flat but when I pulled …

Ever since I went to the 140 Conference, all kinds of ideas came to me but knowing what will work for me is a learning process. Every day I find other ways to make living out of a van a little easier for my kids. With that in mind, I got to thinking about a project …

Two days ago I submitted my story to a single mother’s group online because they had advertised that they were looking for real stories from single mothers.

Getting by….

I recently read an article about getting by on $200.00 a month in food stamps. The author of the article is not homeless and not on any kind of state assistance so for her, this was a “challenging” experiment. For the thousands of homeless families and individuals who know what it is to live on …

Wow!

June 2nd, 2011 | Posted by Carey Fuller in Uncategorized - (0 Comments)

Wow is all I can say to the generous folks who donated to help get to New York to attend the 140 Conference! I have to admit though that I am a little nervous as I’ve never been to a 140 before. True to my nature however, every new experience is an adventure to me …
