  • I'm an adult college student with a shortage of money.

    I can't seem to find a job. My Family is stupid and lets my Uncle insult me. I'm a college student and 21 years old. I tried running away but, everybody was upset so I came home.I had ran away yesterday at 1am. I didn't get enough Financial Aid for on campus housing. I need a place to stay. Last night, I was at Motel 6. It feels like I'm never going to be respected. My Family relies on me to care for my Grandma even though, my Sister(who lives here too) is fully capable of caring for her. A cop told me yesterday, he didn't want me to go home. I care about my Sister & Grandmother but, it's very stressful having my Uncle & his girlfriend coming over to tell me off. Can you help me?
