I need to get home to my daughter

Hi everyone. I'm fundraising for myself and my daughter. We moved to TX from FL for a fresh start and to be close to family for the first time in my daughter's life. That turned out to be an absolute disaster. We were promised a place to live and financial security so I took the leap thinking I was doing what was right for us. I found a job but being away from the house caused extreme tension. I returned "home" from my first day of work and we were suddenly no longer welcome in the house. This has resulted in me forfeiting all our belongings to rent a room in Texas, while my daughter moved back to Florida with just a backpack of clothes and is currently living with friends of mine. I am beyond heart broken to be away from her. I'm asking for financial help for travel expenses back to Florida, a deposit for an apartment and to provide the basic necessities we'll need to restart all over again in Florida. I am really hoping to be back with her by Christmas but without help, there's no way I can save enough to make it home in time for the holidays. I am grateful for any help you can give, even if it isn't monetary. Thank you for reading. Thank you for helping.
