I’m so sorry to hear about what you’re going through @Chastity Godfrey. That’s a lot of stress for one person. Do you have any friends or family nearby who can house you temporarily? It also may be worth reaching out to the city to let them know about your situation. They may be able to provide some resources to you so you can get off your feet.

Perhaps you can ask your neighbors to see where they’re going to get any ideas of other options. They may be in a similar situation to you.


For fundraising, the key is to share your fundraiser with people you know. It’s best to send people your fundraiser directly when you’re just starting out. You could ask those same individuals if they have any ideas for options for you outside of fundraising.  For example, they can share your page from their social media, or connect you with a social service nearby that might be able to support you during this transition.
