Help a Struggling College Student

Organized by: Shaun Marnien

Shaun's Photo


My name is Shaun. I am a 19 year old girl who has been forced to live with her alcoholic mother her whole life, without a father because he walked out when I was 3. I am currently in community college and kept telling myself "only 2 more years until I can leave here." Recently, my mother started threatening to kick me out, let her friends as well as herself emotionally abuse me and make me feel as worthless as possible. I am a type 1 diabetic. She takes me money and steals my things. I have to lock my door during the day so she can't steal my few items to pawn off for money for alcohol and drugs. I need to get out. I want to continue my education and be happy with my cats. I am trying to find roommates but as it stands, since she forces me to pay rent I can't raise enough to put a down payment on an apartment. I need help.. I need to get out of here before she does more than emotionally abuse me... Anything you can offer, even a dollar, would help me.. God bless you all and thank you from the bottom of my heart to anyone who donates.
