PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE YOU CONTACT US:

DISCLAIMER

Homeless To Independence Inc. is an All-Volunteer, Faith-Based, 501©3 non-profit organization. We do NOT receive any grant funding what-so-ever to pay bills for anyone in any situation. We do not give away money. We do not give out loans against any money.

This ministry is supported with generous financial donations that are used to help keep us functioning. Our purpose is to help supply individuals and families with personal needs such as food, toiletries, clothing, household items, furniture and baby/adult diapers/wipes both locally and to areas effected by disasters . At this time, we do not offer any shelter or transitional housing services. Again, we DO NOT pay any bills. We DO NOT pay any rents or mortgages.

If you are actually homeless, or about to be homeless or need emergency assistance of any kind, DIAL “211” from a land-line telephone. This will not work from a cell telephone. Tell the receiver your situation and what you need. They will give you information specific for the location you are currently in plus any referrals you may need. They have the most up to the minute information for your specific area. Dialing “211” will get you help and much more info than this office can provide. Homeless to Independence wants you to have all the information you need to get through the situation you are in.

Don’t have a land-line telephone??? Go to your local police department, library, or house of worship and ask to use their land-line telephone. They may even make the call on your behalf.

***

For those of you looking for employment through-out the United States, District of Columbia or Puerto Rico, simply send me an email to:

Ann@homelesstoindependence.org with:

1) the name of your State/Commonwealth, District of Columbia or Puerto Rico and
2) if you have a conviction and your record contains something more serious than a traffic conviction within the past 7-years. We do NOT need to know what the conviction was, we do not want to waste your time with opportunities you will not be qualified to apply for at this time.

***

Homeless To Independence Inc. is not responsible for misprints or cancellations of events by the event holders, landlord and/or their agent, or ourselves. Homeless to Independence Inc. also reserves the right to “NOT” offer services to people and/or persons that are rude, unpleasant, and untruthful in any way shape or form, belligerent and the like.

OCCASIONALLY, THERE WILL BE ARTICLES BY OTHER WRITERS. HOMELESS TO INDEPENDENCE MAY NOT NECESSARILY AGREE WITH THEIR VIEWPOINTS, BUT WE DO RESPECT THEM. THANK YOU FOR YOUR COOPERATION!

OFFICE CONTACT INFO:

THE VERY BEST WAY TO CONTACT ME IS TO SEND ME AN EMAIL: ANN@HOMELESSTOINDEPENDENCE.ORG

OFFICE NUMBER IS: 1-732-264-7500

Please note that our office does have very limited volunteer staff and if we are one telephone line we cannot answer the other line. There is simply not enough time in the day to answer and/or return each and every telephone call.

IF YOU ARE ASKING FOR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE, NO ONE WILL CONTACT YOU BACK.

THANK YOU!!!

NOW – POSITIVE EMPLOYMENT SEARCHING

In order to be considered by a prospective employer, first impressions ARE the most important! Get a haircut, fresh clothes, and shower – Make your BEST effort to make your BEST impression!!! There are agencies to help you with clothes. Even if you are homeless at this point in time, you can get a fresh shower at a shelter in your area. There ARE other housing options in the county and you can do it!

FAA FEDERAL AVIATION JOB OPENINGS

The Federal Aviation Association is taking applications for air traffic controller school. We all have
kids and know kids in the right age group (under 31) and with some effort they could reach a salary
of over $100,000 with benefits in about 3 years. You need only a high school diploma to apply and
credit is given for college on the exam.

They need to go to faa.gov (http://www.faa.gov/jobs/job_opportunities/airtraffic_controllers/) for
details and to fill out the application immediately – even if they don’t know if they’d want to attend
immediately – it’s the federal government and it may take them months to call. The key is to apply
NOW. There will be a lot of retirements coming up rather quickly and they need to line up training to
accommodate these openings. It’s my understanding that the FAA rarely has an open application
such as this and that the jobs are coveted.

This is a great opportunity and it should be noted that choosing a site like Anchorage or Indianapolis
to train is a likely acceptance into the training program – after-which you can transfer anywhere in
the country that has a tower. I hope that this is timely information for your daughter/son or anyone
else who may find it useful.

*************************************************

Please follow these suggestions:

• First have your resume prepared. There are libraries that will do them free of charge. Provide honest information.
• Next I would like to discuss the application. I strongly suggest for you to pick up a paper application, fill it out totally! This will be your “Cheat Sheet” and will show your prospective employer that you are organized and ready. Pulling 50-million sheets of paper out of your pocket while filling out an application looks BAD! DO NOT ABBREVIATE! Do NOT even abbreviate “New Jersey”. Do NOT leave any space blank; if the requested
information does not apply to you simply put “N/A” in that block. Apply as a responsible, dependable and employable person.
• Have all of your identification ready.
• Choose your references carefully also. Now that you have made positive changes, I strongly suggest that you offer people that know and have witnessed your new lifestyle.
• Do not be afraid to offer certificates of accomplishment such as computer classes, parenting classes, first aid classes, etc.
• Have your interview clothes ready the night before and take a fresh shower in the morning. (I am, at this time, working on barbers and salons that will donate haircuts. More information to come as I make those arrangements).
• Always keep in prayer. No matter what, life can only get better as long as you choose to make the positive changes to change your own life.
