July 10, 2016


I am a 21 year-old who was living at home as a full-time student studying to become a radiology technician and working part-time as a security officer at Kaiser. My mother lost her home and we became homeless. I have been living with friends and family on floors and couches for almost a year, and had to put my schooling on hold to support myself. In May 2016, I leased a car with Uber to work for Uber and Lyft to support myself with food, an apartment and to put myself through school. As a Uber/Lyft driver, II would drive from Sacramento to San Francisco, working 12-14 hours a day to pay a $179 per week car lease as well my other expenses. I enjoyed this job, the freedom of working for myself, and meeting new people. On June 4, 2016, while working for Lyft in San Francisco, I was hit by another driver. I had Lyft passengers in the car. The other car hit me on the driver side and fortunately, my passengers were not injured but I was taken by ambulance to a hospital. My car was totaled and was towed. I was stranded at the hospital in San Francisco as I was staying in Sacramento which is approximately two hours away. As of July 2016, my car is still at the tow yard called Auto Return in Daly City and the costs of storage is increasing daily. I cannot afford the tow and storage fees, yet alone any costs to get it repaired or replaced. The costs of my lease payments and car storage is steadily increasing. This accident has caused me to lose my only source of income and transportation. I have injuries that requires treatment 2-3 times a week and I am getting referrals to specialists for my back and both legs. I am going through a tough time with the insurance company of the driver at fault, and it has been over a month and I have had no income to support myself. My resources to borrow from friends and family have run out and I have run out of options. I am trying to raise enough money to help with transportation, medical expenses, and living accommodations. I am not giving up on my desire to resume my classes to become a radiology technician and plan on resuming my classes as soon as I can get on my feet. I have been getting other job offers, but I cannot get to these job opportunities without transportation. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanking you in advance.
