I will refrain from naming names or relationships during this post, but the following story is happening to someone very close to me and I am trying to figure out how to help them. Some background information: The friend in question is 27 years old and has been financially stable her whole life. She has a crackhead sister on welfare living in mid-southern Michigan, and has an aunt and uncle living in a much better upper middle class area of the same city. She has a upper middle class aunt living in a different city in Michigan. The rest of her family is dispersed across the country. The situation: My friend's job (online journalist, can be done from anywhere) will be discontinued at the end of the year. She has no car and no way to travel anywhere other than walking. She has no place to live right now and is currently visiting her family in Houston. She has $20 in her checking account, and any money she makes from her job from now until the end of the year will be spent on food and bills. As soon as her income stops, she will have no way to pay her bills. Since she doesn't have a car she won't have a way to get to any job she may get unless she lives within walking distance to it. None of her family that she might be able to stay with lives within walking distance to any commerce areas, and she can't afford a place of her own that would be close to a job without money, which she doesn't have. She can't live with her family forever either, and even if she did, she wouldn't have a way to get to a job. She has been unable to find any other writing jobs online. Neither of us knows anyone within walking distance of a job who would let her stay with them, and I can't help her myself due to my own personal circumstances that don't need to be discussed here. What can she do?
