Asking Portland to help my son.
I guess I am kind of desperately in need for help for my son. I am not in OR, and that's all I can do right now. Below is my older son's plea for help from his facebook page of this morning. As most of you know, he had some serious things in his teens and served a year, but has been going to school (PCC) and extremely actively looking for work since last December. I pay for his school, books, bus pass and phone, and now that his food stamps expired, some for food as well. However, his living situation is really bad as he lives with some (while kind, but) serious alcoholics. He is not asking for free, he is asking for help finding a job. He needs work for many more reasons than simply money to get a room by himself. He needs experience, independence and a big step into a real life. He is ready. I haven't said those words before, and now I am. If you know of any employee (personally, not website, he had filled every application out there), please contact me or ask for his contact.
