If I hear just 1 more time Katie and husband need a piece of mail verifying they currently reside at this address I may feel the need to hit someone. 1. They just got here a wk ago. 2. They are homeless / jobless.......what on earth would they be receiving mail for per se?? Tomorrow husband is mailing a piece of paper to one of them just so they can have an envelope with their name on it with the address. Stupid stupid stupid. C'mon, since they HOMELESS they are lucky to even have an address to use people!! This practice is annoying enough when you aren't homeless and relocating from another area......sheesh. Ok so yeah I get the basis behind it, but why can't they see that in certain situations it just does not work? Katie and I registered the kids in school today. She'd brought all necessary info with her. But guess what? Since she is living with me........I had to come home (thankfully is only about 5 mins away) and get a recent utility bill......let them photo copy it, list on the photo copy that Katie, Kayla, and Alex live with me and sign it......PLUS had over MY ID and let them photo copy that too. Gimme a bleeping break. What was the point of all that? I could just as easily still be lying about them living with us........I'm not, but I'm guessing this is the basis for this........ The only program that did not require such a thing so far has been WIC, they didn't even require Evan's birth certificate.......they realized the special circumstances and accepted his shot records and ss card as ID. sheesh And true I've never delt with shelters much. But omg.......Katie calls daily without fail hoping for a spot.......day after day they tell her thurs for wilmington.......she does the app then poof out of nowhere some woman (not the director who is supposed to call) calls and says they're full and don't know when they'll have room. You may get such and such info from one person and yet get such and such info from another, then such and such from yet another..........and yes this includes directors of the shelters. UGGHHH Just depends on who to happen to talk to. No wonder the kids have been so frustrated. Ok vent over.
