Out of the military, out of a job, no rent money for next month

I was recently given an Academic Discharge from the Air Force Reserves for Schizophrenia. While I was in the Reserves I did some side work with a staffing agency and the two jobs gave me just barely enough to pay for the $400 rent my parents set for me (this includes food). I've never had any extra money and the staffing company was never reliable on bringing in work for me. A lawyer is working on getting me a court session to determine my eligibility for SSI. This is estimated to take another 9 months at least.

I have no idea what options are available to me. I don't feel at all eligible for the workforce since I've been applying for jobs for several months with minimal results. And even now I'm plagued with a severe depression that saps me of so much energy I can't even leave the bed for more than half the day. And even I can get out of bed, I'm too nervous to leave my room most days.

My number one priority is finding a safe home. I've been to Mental Health Centers and they've only listed homeless shelters for me. This would make me even less comfortable than I already am, hiding out in my room. Where can I look to for assistance? What is available for a 27 year old Reservist who has been in the force for 3 years?

Looking forward to your responses. Thank you in advance.

section 8 public housing

disability for your disorder and ptsd if you have it

vet work programs and integration

search the web your town local va and file a disability claim you will get denied 3 times but usually get on with back pay most get scared and jump the gun social takes time and lots of rejects

my 3rd try got it for severe adhd with way over 100 jobs lost longest lasting 6 mos

the gov shits on vets but if you work your ass off you can get help it shouldn't be that way but that's the dam country we live in

the civil service are all bunch of fucking inept retards. Propped up by a conservative regime, who think it is fantastic, because they hate the working class.
