THE STORY:

If I raise this money it will pay to get myself and my 6 year old daughter a home. We have been homeless since we were evicted from our apartment following my surgery last summer. I have done everything I can besides sacrificing my morals to save up and get us our life back. Soon after eviction I thought we wpuld have a place in no time, but then I started having engine trouble with my vehicle and getting significantly less gas mileage. Also no one really tells you how expensive homelessness becomes when youre continually travelling for a place to stay and feeding yourself without being able to keep hot or cold food, or cook any of it. My body is now being restored to health and my mind is optimistic, although I could never forgive myself if I didnt do everything I possibly can for my daughter. I have applied for every government aid there is out there. Social media does not quite describe the reality of what it takes to either get this help, nor do they tell you the reality of how little is actually available. I am on a 2 year waiting list for low income housing, I was denied disability, and there is strict criteria for qualifying for most gov funded aid. Basically I find myself in the cracks of being either too bad off or not bad enough, not a drug addict, amd not pregnant, but also not in a shelter being bumped up the list because all the beds are full. Most of the friends I know are not in a position to help and I have found out through this experience tht I have less friends than I thought I had. I am not lazy, I am not a mooch, I am a very giving person when I have something to give. I understand the prejudices and biases that are placed on people like me, who have lost it all. One day I hope to campaign against those generalizations against struggling individuals and families. Here today though I am just asking that somehow this works out, that the money shows up and that I get put of this downward spiral so that I can live in peace with my daughter and raise her to be very sucessful and to never have to go through this. Thank you for reading my story, I hope that if not a dollar is raised that I have at least made an impact on somebody's perspective or maybe even inspired you to help someone near you who is in a similar situation.

Here is a little about my daughter. Isabelle is 6 and 3/4 and smart because she loves to learn. She likes to read all on her own without being asked, I am always getting praise from her teachers that she is so bright. She draws pictures everyday and sings all the time. This circumstance has changed her and I dont know what else to do.
