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 …

Crowds in faces…..

Going to New York is always an interesting experience and for me, going to the 140 Conference gave me a lot of memories and some things to think about that never occurred to me until I listened to folks from all over the world talk about how they use social media. Even more surprising were the …

Homeless parenting…..

May 27th, 2011 | Posted by Carey Fuller in Homelessness - (2 Comments)

Parenting while homeless is no different than what other parents do; it’s just that as a parent without my own home, I have to deal with situations that non-homeless parents don’t have to worry about.

This is the email the teacher sent to me after I sent her a message saying “She did?”: “She did and it was very matter of fact.   I can’t even remember what led …

Teachers without a clue

March 17th, 2011 | Posted by Carey Fuller in Homelessness - (10 Comments)

I got an email the other day from my youngest daughter’s teacher about a “Cool U” interview with each student in class. Typical of my daughter not to say anything about this project until the last-minute! I didn’t see the blue sheet with details on it that the teacher sent home with all the students …

Well folks, Caly’s mechanic friend kept his word and took a look at the mini van from top to bottom. He told me that the van is worth saving because Aerostar’s can go on forever but the transmissions go out. I asked him about just getting a used tranny from a junkyard, I found one for $275.00. Basically …

I was going through some pictures of mine to share with you all and found one of the Minnie Winnebago we lived out of for five years. When we first became homeless and started living out of it, my youngest was only one and half years old. My oldest was only about 9 years old then. …

Well it seems like quite a few friends are out looking for a transmission and affordable mechanic for me. I thank everyone for all their well wishes and willingness to help me out! But for those of you who know me, you know I am also trying to support myself through my writing, regardless of …
