Get Clem to Work

Organized by: Clem Clark

I have worked hard all my life and have been self sufficient for the most part. Yes I have had some tough times but I was always able to see the light at the end of the tunnel. I have worked hard and volunteered in my community to help others. I have been active in raising funds for local feeding programs, churches and charities that help people with HIV. Never did I think that I would be needing help myself.

Since the recession it has been difficult for me at 49 to find full time work. I have been getting by using my skills and tenacity. I have been able to put food on the table and keep a roof over our heads even while living paycheck to paycheck. I have taken whatever job comes my way and have been scraping by believing tomorrow would be better. Recently I have been getting various short term assignments through staffing agencies hoping that eventually one job would lead to a full time position.

Lately it seems that I am hitting 1 road block after another. I have health problems that are getting worse and my mobility is increasingly limited. I am now using a cane to get around but even that is getting difficult. This latest roadblock though is a show stopper and without a resolution I am afraid I will be homeless shortly.

The transmission on my car that I rely on to get to my various jobs has died. I can be repaired but I don't have the funds. With close to $40K in unpaid medical bills, I cannot get credit from a bank or credit union. My work history since the recession does not help things. Even though I have been bringing in money, it is inconsistent and without a full time job there is no way I can get credit to cover the needed repairs. Bus service in my area is difficult and getting to my current assignment requires 2 hours of travel and a 3 mile walk even though the site is only 8 miles from where I live. I can't survive without a vehicle

I am trying this avenue for help in a last ditch effort to stay employed and keep a roof over my head. I am a widower and do not have any family to rely on for help. If I can't get to work, then I can't earn a living. I am out of options.
