It's a place called home, it's a safe haven, and it's a place where love, compassion, support and direction is given to me on a daily basis. Cheryl (Kit) Turner is my land lady from heaven the person who provides these intangible things to me daily. I once about 8 months ago was a homeless Veteran who lived on the streets of South Jersey than made my way up to Essex County mainly the Newark, East Orange area to find myself behind
buildings in dumpsters and shelters all over which is no place for a Veteran of any branch, race, color or creed.
I got out of the Military like all others do to move on to bigger and better things, but my inability to find right medication for my PTSD and depression I went after drugs and that only made me broke and eventually homeless and I've had my fair share of run-ins with the law as well. I met Kit through a friend when I was staying at the Salvation Army shelter on Fullerton Street in Montclair. I called her and she opened her heart and home to me. Now I didn't have much to offer, but she still gave me a place to stay knowing my situation. I've worked odd jobs throughout the 8 months living with Kit always wondering if I was going to be able to give her Rent. Sometimes I can't pay at all or if I can pay it is late and it's only a measly $300. a month but she always bears with me, which is great for someone in my situation. By being here I've been able to pull myself together take classes at the VA Medical Center in East Orange for my situation and I've picked up some reliable and steady work with a tree service for the time being. I just wish somebody could help Kit out like she helps others. Everyone at one point or another deserves a helping hand and Ms. Turner is due for hers.
Thank you for listening. God speed!
