Desperately Seeking Housing in Boulder, CO
Boulder, CO No Pride Left: Desperately Seeking Housing
Description: I have been approved for a county grant that will provide my deposit and up to 9 months rent to help me become housed, after almost two years of homelessness. They will only allow a 1 bedroom (or smaller) unit, and will only pay up to $844.00. I must have a lease in place by June 24th, 2011 to take advantage of this program. To add to the mix, I have a Heart Puja on June 18th that needs my attention and energy this next week. I need all kinds of help right now, and after finding a place, I’ll need help getting moved out of storage and settled in for the fall. My physical health and energy has degenerated during this phase of homelessness. The good news is, I’ve been accepted at Naropa (www.naropa.edu) for the fall semester. I hope to be able to stabilize my home and my health enough to go to college and do well there.
Since a massive mold exposure in 2007 I have become chemically sensitive, so there are a number of requirements for the living space. Once I am settled into a Boulder apartment, my long-term vision is to provide safe space for others with environmental illness to come and detox as they work on the emotional body issues that are causing their immune system to over react (childhood abuse is often wired into this syndrome). I know in my bones that horses will be especially useful for healing sexual wounding and war trauma.
As I’ve gone through all of this in the last two years, I’ve become an advocate for our homeless population. I’ve worked my way through the systems that attempt to provide help to the homeless. And do I ever have stories…much to share about this expanding problem that many will face in the coming years. There are so many mistaken ideas about who the homeless are, and how they’ve come to be homeless. My intention is to write about these experiences, and about my continuing path of service to the healing of myself and others, so that we may all come into an era of peace.
