In search of a hero

July 31st, 2011 | Posted by Carey Fuller in Homelessness - (1 Comments)

You know it’s funny, the way people are. In times of chaos and what seems like never ending misery, people go looking for heroes. Someone they can look up to for inspiration and maybe a little encouragement too. If ever there was a time for heroes, now certainly looks like a good time. The thing …

  How does one brand humanity or human dignity? Can compassion be scaled down to a basic concept that can be exploited for marketing purposes? In the business world there is a practice called branding. For those of you unfamiliar with the term it basically means a company putting its name on a product. A …

By order of the Mayor

July 21st, 2011 | Posted by Carey Fuller in Homelessness - (0 Comments)

As I am still waiting for a response from Suzette Cooke regarding the open letter I sent her, I thought the voting public of Kent would like to hear from some of its disenfranchised youth. I find it interesting that it is almost unanimous among the homeless youth that Kent police officers declare that it …

Recently I had the opportunity to speak with homeless youth in and about your city. I found it interesting that they are saying officers from the Kent Police department claim that the reason they harass homeless youth near the Kent library and parks nearby comes from being pressured by the Mayor’s office.

Here’s a short video I made while checking out an opportunity with the Seattle Conservation Corps. Maybe most of you didn’t realize just how many barriers there are in getting out of homelessness but it’s time you did!

The problem with programs

July 14th, 2011 | Posted by Carey Fuller in Homelessness - (1 Comments)

Ok so I went to check out a job opportunity today already knowing that questions would be asked along with filling out forms.

Child care blues

July 13th, 2011 | Posted by Carey Fuller in Homelessness - (3 Comments)

Today I called around to see what kind of help is available for subsidized childcare. Getting a job is always preferrable to the meager cash TANF (welfare) would grant. Oh and for those of you who don’t know this, if you get TANF, there’s a five year limit that you can be on it. In …

Ta daaaa! Here I am showing folks what it sounds like when calling for help. If you’ve never called around to get into a shelter, here’s your chance to see what it’s like. I am still amused whenever I see comments out there from people that still think getting out of homelessness must be as …

I wanted to make a nice smooth video about the realities of homelessness here in Seattle but….Windows Movie Maker on this laptop is having too many problems accepting the videos I take on my video recorders so I have opted for uploading snippets on to youTube. Add to the fact that I have limited amounts …

Get ready….

July 5th, 2011 | Posted by Carey Fuller in Homelessness | Uncategorized - (0 Comments)

One of the cool things about social media is being able to talk and “meet” people from around the world and from all kinds of walks of life. Not everyone I talk to is homeless. I am grateful for being able to talk with people from homeless services since they know firsthand that what I’m …
