My name is Ashley and I am Posting behalf of a good friend of mine. His name is Liam. He is currently without cell service and is having a hard time to find wifi. He currently lives with two roommates but recently due to some issues transporting, he has a few days to be out and will be homeless. Liam has no car, his family does not bother with him and he has no one else to help him. Liam is also struggling with a few other things in life such as a steady job, money and emotions/mentally. He is also a recovering addict who is trying to stay sober and on the right path. I've e-mailed a lot of the OKC shelters over the last bit but seems to be a waiting list. He doesn't have much money, if at all. Any advice? Any other resources? Please, he needs any and all help he could possibly get. Thank you!

The Salvation Army has a brand new building with many apartment units. I believe it's based totally on need, which sounds like your friend would qualify. It's off of 7th St. I believe.
