difficult child is still on the streets. Sleeping at the train station at night and bouncing between the day shelter, library and soup kitchen during the day. This weekend is Easter and we were going to allow him to come here on Sunday but now that he got kicked out of the shelter and is officially completely homeless I can't bring him here. Not as a punishment to him but I need to spare my younger son the sight of his cherished older brother at rock bottom. He's still next for a bed at Safe Haven through the MHA but who knows when that will be. The office of temp assistance won't help bc according to them he caused his own homelessness so he's not allowed to ask them for housing assistance for 6 mo. I guess in the meantime they are ok with an unstable mentally ill young man living at a train station. I thought they were there to help ppl like difficult child. If he was an addict he'd have no problem finding help. Ugggh! (Note - I'm not saying anything negative about addicts so please don't think that! I'm just frustrated that it would be easier for difficult child to get help if he was on drugs instead of "just" being mentally ill. ) I wish I could send him to my dad now but I can't until he's stable. Even if my dad said send him now I wouldn't bc my dad has SO many health issues and I can't send difficult child out to him like this. It would be a complete disaster and set up for failure. I'm so sad and disheartened tonight. I feel like there's no hope. I'm so scared for difficult child.
