So...This is totally ME. My son hasn't called for help (in a while) but I think it's just the season - winter is SO HARD. He's managed to stay on campus, in some girl's college dorm room. I don't know how that's working out, but he's been crashing in this dorm for weeks apparently. (As far as I'm concerned - that's her parent's problem.) He did have to vacate the weekend before Thanksgiving - I bought him a new sleeping bag because he lost the old one. Otherwise, I didn't help and he's had to sleep rough a bit. Over Thanksgiving, he managed to pretty much stay there, hiding away from the RA while everyone else was gone, eating Ramen and otherwise fine. Bored, but fine. School will be out soon for winter break and that's going to be a couple weeks, minimum, that he's going to not have a place to sleep. Colorado Springs doesn't have much in the line of shelters; they are full and the winter shelter uses a lottery system to decide who can stay. I read in the paper that the non-profit disbanded the tent city on their property after pressure from the city. My son tells me the cops are rousting any homeless from public parks, etc., and throwing away their belongings if they are caught. I believe the fines are for "camping" on public property - a new way to penalize people for being homeless. I'm getting more and more worried. He doesn't know where he's going to go. I know the shelters are full. It's snowing there - a lot. I try not to think about it, but this sucks so hard.
