Help Me Survive Homelessness

hi y'all, my name is misha, and i hate to be here, but i'm facing homelessness pretty soon and i'm out of options. i'm a transgender gay 19 y/o and i have a very rough family history. i was on the streets with my abusive father in 2019, and the family situation i've been in for 2020 is far from permanent. i'm asking for help to buy basic necessities and possibly secure safe housing because i'm wearing out my welcome to say the least. i have a part time job and i save when i can, but most of my finances end up going towards my family, basic necessities, and my online education. i have $200 to my name, and that terrifies me. i have ptsd as well as major depression and the conservative area in AZ i'm in makes it very hard for me to get the help i need. i also have no resources for my transition, and being in the closet is killing me. since i will be homeless and things can't get much worse, i've decided to move to a better city this upcoming november. my dream is to eventually go to massage school, have a happy place to call home, recover from my mental illness, and feel like myself again. none of that can happen where i am; i need to take a step forward, and i could really use some help getting there. if you do donate to me, i can't even begin to know how to thank you. but just know that this is a huge point in my life, and i will never forget your kindness. even if you don't, thank you for reading this. please note that i'm using a mask in my photo and being a little vague to protect my identity/out of fear someone i know will find this. if you would like more details, i am happy to talk privately!
