Help A Trans Woman Escape Abuse & Homelessness

I'm Rachel, a 19 year old trans woman. For my entire life, I've suffered vicious physical and mental abuse from my father. I've been demeaned, called slurs, had my life threatened, and been lied to about the health of my mother for years. I've also been beat, strangled, and deprived necessary resources to survive. Days ago, I was falsely arrested after my father claimed I physically assaulted him, when in reality I had only pushed him in self defense. Now I have the opportunity to leave, but I don't have any money to find a place to live.

I am an artist, I have ambitions and dreams, but most importantly I just want to be able to live free of my father, free to live as the person I want to live as. Without funds, I'll either be homeless or I'll have to return to my abusive father. With this money, I'll hopefully find somewhere to stay temporarily.
