Temporary Housing: $350

I’m on the housing voucher list. I get an SSDI check, which I have spent on my phone, storage, bus, Lyft, and a motel room. The hotel manager offered me a job, so I’m working here now. I do get food stamps, so I’m good with food. If I can make it to payday, I think I will be home free.

Baby Food and Diapers: $500

I have a 6-month-old baby and the baby’s father was deported. I was left alone and I still can’t work because the baby is very small, and I need help because he needs to pay my bills and buy milk and diapers for my baby. I would be very grateful if could you help me.

Food and Gas: $250

The winter storm caused me to get set back because I couldn’t work due to the storm. I am just overwhelmed, and I have 3 small ones that count on me. But I’m not able to provide, and I’m trying not to give up. Thank you so much.

Temporary Housing: $475

My daughter and I are staying at a hotel. I am working, but I don’t get paid until the 12th. I’m needing to pay for the hotel, which is difficult to say the least! I don’t want to be on the street with my child.

Isa Boonto is asking for support with

Safe Lodging: $550

I am a non-binary, Asian-American artist and writer. I am completely numb from all of this. I do not feel safe at my home due to a volatile relationship with my partner, but I cannot fully afford to leave and have considered sleeping in my car until I determine a solution. These funds will allow me to pursue an alternative living solution for me and my three children. Thank you.

Vanessa Stone is asking for support with

Food and Gas: $600

My husband and I are homeless in Texas with our dogs. We live in our van and are trying to get to Michigan. We have friends there that are willing to let us stay until we get on our feet. In need of $600 for gas, food, and drinks on the way there and possibly one night in a room during this trip to be able to shower. Getting to Michigan would help us so much. Thank you.
