I fear becoming homeless. I really fear it. And I fear it because I really believe that within a few years I'll become homeless.
I live in a single parent household and my job wouldn't pay enough to pay all the bills. My father is retired and has a shit tier navy pension. He just slouches on the sofa watching TV because he has nothing to do with himself. I know when he croaks I'm fucked and my whole world will come crashing down.
I wish I could get a high paying job or even just win a load of money and I'd be fine but I just look at documentaries on homeless people and I don't want to end up living under a bridge until I croak.

I can see why some people consider suicide now.

What help could I get if I get evicted?

How old are you?

Why don't you work/go to school?

Navy also has a death pension http://www.public.navy.mil/bupers-npc/support/casualty/benefits/Pages/VADeathPension.aspx

I'm afraid I'm one of those neet types. I should have a career at my age but don't. If I had that I wouldn't be asking any of this.
Also I'm in the Uk so that link doesn't help oo much. I'll google the UK version

Being Homeless an't that bad, When you hit rock bottom the only way is up. Don't worry about it

that's easy to say until you start doing drugs to get through every day, or you get beat on out of pure meanness or don't have a way to find work because you're in no state to help yourself.

hoo oui

island apes want to leave the EU? do they realize they'll leave the EWR too?
while you're still a european citizen you can take a look at the continental states: a lot of them have great universities that are almost free and additionally have stipends for virtually all EWR students.

these generic stipends don't pay all the bills, but you can always be a bartender on the side.

That has nothing to do with being homeless that has everything do with your character.You shouldn't let your situation define who you are. Plenty of "Successful people" also use drugs as a coping mechanism. Getting beat on could happen to anyone at any time. Plenty of people who have a home who also can't find work.

Trust me I would be fine as a bartender. But does that get you enough to pay for apartment and utility bills?
No no and no.
I've never heard of a bartender who lives in their own home by mixing drinks.

>>16854491
And so then how do they manage to avoid getting evicted?
>>
Well you have years then to get your ass in gear to be able to make enough money to live comfortably. Go into a trade or go back to school. Don't give me an excuse about how you're too old or some other excuse. If you give excuses for not doing shit to better your life you deserve what your future holds.

Here's your choice. Do something or don't.

My point was you shouldn't be afraid of being homeless, even if it's temporary. Sure people in that situation might get evicted they might be homeless for a few days, weeks or months but most people who become homeless don't stay homeless for long. There is support available for those facing such troubles. The key point i'm making is that your idea that the world will come crashing down is pretty ridiculous.

stipends= ~700 eur, + three shifts/ week = ~ 900-1000 eur a month. enough for a small studio, enough for a dorm and a car, even.

move in with a gf or bf if homo and you can even get by without the extra job.

it aint luxury, but in 3 years you'll get a decent job
