i DID NOT HAVE A HOME THAT WAS AFFECTED BY THE STORMS. BUT, MY LIFE WAS AFFECTED NONETHELESS. i AM A STUDENT AND A SINGLE MOTHER OF TWO. I AM ON GOVERNMENT ASSISTANCE BECAUSE I AM A GUNSHOT VICTIM. BUT WHEN GUSTAV AND IKE HIT THE EVECUEES OVERSTAYED THEIR WELCOME. SOME ARE STILL HERE LETTING THE GOVERNMENT FOOT THE BILL. THEY WERE VERY DISCOURTEOUS WHILE HERE AND SHOW NO ATTEMPT TO HELP THEMSELVES GET BACK HOME. tHE RESIDENTS HERE ARE BEING AFFECTED BECAUSE THE GOVERNMENT ASSISTANCES ARE BEING FOCUSED ON THEM INSTEAD OF THE PEOPLE WHO REALLY NEED THEM THAT ACTUALLY LIVE HERE AND APPRECIATE THE THINGS WE GET. WE NOW HAVE TO GO TO THE EMERGENCY FOOD AND CLOTHING BANKS BECAUSE OUR ASSISTANCE COMES IN AT ALL DIFFERENT TIMES OF THE MONTH, IF AT ALL, AND WE CANT GET AN ANSWER ABOUT WHEN WE CAN GET AN APPOINTMENT. i WOULD JUST LIKE TO SAY, IF YOU ARE CAPABLE OF DOING SOME KIND OF WORK, PLEASE GO HOME AND FIND SOME SO WE CAN GET THINGS BACK TO NORMAL. YOU CAN GET THE SAME ASSISTANCE AT HOME AS YOU CAN HERE. THIS IS NOT A VACATION SPOT BY ANY MEANS. PLEASE GIVE US THAT NEED OUR LIFE BACK INPRDER A CHAMCE TO GET IT BACK THAT WAY.
