Safer Living for my twins
Organized by: Elluz Garcia
Me and my twin daughters live in a high crime area located in Newark NJ West Ward. There are weekly homicides, daily drug/gang activity, and auto theft. I am scared for me and my daughters life I moved here 8 years ago where I thought the rent was pretty reasonable, but as the years went by Ive experienced some dangerous situations living here. My daughters are 3 years old and are the most important thing to me. There are bullet holes in my car where my car was parked in the street (infront of my house) due to a drive by shooting, one of the bullets entered my babies car seat. My car has been vandalized, stolen, shot at multiple times. One of the bullets also entered through the front door of the house I live in. All I can say is that I thank God everyday for keeping us safe this long and I'm grateful for me and my daughters being alive. Bottom line is I have to move, but rent in NJ in a decent area is very expensive. I found the perfect apartment for me and my girls and I'm excited to begin a safer living with my daughters, only thing is if I want to move by Sept 1st 2016, the landlords wants the security deposit, app fee and 1st months rent by the 1st and I'm really struggling to save that much in such a short amount of time. I would greatly appreciate any help you all could contribute to my situation so we can get out of there ASAP ! Thank you & GodBless.
