“When deciding what bills to pay, prioritize housing! There are many food assistance programs to help, but once you become homeless everything is so much harder.

If you’re in the US, some areas have a hotline for community services if you dial 211, so it’s worth checking if your area is one of them. They can connect you with non-profits that specialize in housing assistance, utility assistance, finding food, and even mental health stuff.”, said one user.
