Homeless 18 Year Old Trans Woman Seeking Aid

Hii!! My name is Minerva M’khasheyfah, I’m an 18 year old transgender woman unfortunately recently facing homelessness. I am in major needs of funds for emergency housing, transition, and therapy services. All these things are dire for my immediate safety and survival. Being homeless and the situations leading up to my homelessness have been extremely traumatizing. In the weeks before I fell into homelessness I faced sexual assault and extreme emotional abuse. Due to this i had to go to the mental hospital. I need therapy and I need to be able to pay my bill from the hospital. While being a non-passing trans woman in the midst of transitioning via hormone replacement therapy, growing my hair out, my clothes now being mass majority femme presenting, and homeless has left me in a very vulnerable place for danger. I need help to access my name change, gender marker change, and hormone replacement therapy. As I am becoming more visibly and visibly trans the harder it has been for me to succeed in anyway. After losing my job that accepted my transition, due to my homelessness, I was forced to move from the westbank of New Orleans to eastbank where all the shelters are. It has been excruciatingly harder for me to find any safe form of work. So until I find a job that accepts me, or to tillI I get the funds to further my transition to a point where some jobs will accept me I’m stuck in a very harsh and dangerous situation. I am trying to get to a point where I can succeed and be okay again. I would really appreciate any help you can give. I’ve tried very hard to do this on my own, to find work, to try and succeed but I just can’t in the position I’m in. Extenuating circumstances have left me completely helpless. I’m scared every day, for when the other shoe will drop and I’ll be in danger again. It’s very hard for me to ask for help or admit that this is happening to me so I hope you can feel my genuine need for this. Even if it’s $1 or just sharing. Anything you can do is helpful! I appreciate you, you’re support, and all the positive energies that y’all send my way. i send so much love to you in advance. ♥️ you are my angel.
