Why Joe Need Help?
Joe is in the Hospital in Huntington Beach, Ca. and will be transferred to a local VA Hospital. He was admitted at 1am on 10/31/2016. Joe has 2 jobs just maintain ends meet. Now that he is in the Hospital, he really needs our help.
In Joe’s own words:
“Still in the ER awaiting transfer via ambulance to the VA, to be admitted into a psych ward. I posted something yesterday that I know scared a lot of people, and I am immensely sorry for that. v I did something very stupid to myself – suicide was not my intention, only to pass out for a while. However, I also was at the point of not caring if I woke up or not. I would sooner die than be homeless again, and given what happened at my full time job, I didn’t see myself as having any other choice. The cops confiscated my firearms, and I’m now losing a lot of work. I can’t survive without working, being alone. I don’t know what to do now, it’s in God’s hands. I will hopefully be released from the VA hospital in a few days. When that happens, I will be in need of financial help, until I can get my feet on the ground again. I have an amazing circle of friends. Thank you very much for being concerned about me. I may need to lean on you all in the weeks ahead.”
How All Funds Will Be Used?
Any and all funds will be used to help pay for medical bills as well as rent. This way it may act as a buffer until Joe can return to work.
