You might have seen my thread about my current situation. Displaced by Katrina, and I have little more than a few sets of clothes and a cell phone. A family is taking my baby and me in so we are fine shelter-wise.
I want to work ASAP. I have looked locally and filled out apps, but now I am stumped; It's been a while since I worked and my supervisors are no longer there. I don't have the 4 references that I need, only 2 because I have moved so much over the years that I don't have many long-term friends. One of my references is the family I am staying with. I did see a therapist back in Alabama but I dont think it's appropriate to ask for a reference from her, is it? Any suggestions?
P.S. My resume and all that is back in Alabama...is it inappropriate to explain my situation to a prospective employer? I do not want a hand-out but I I really need to make some money and start over again.
