Getting out of dodge

Hello, my name is Albert.  I am a type 1 diabetic with mental health diagnosis'.    Currently, I am seeking help in moving exspense for me and my mom because we are facing eviction and Homelessness.
       We moved to the quiet mountain town of Asheville, NC about 7 years ago looking for a fresh start.  It has been the most stressful and financially draining decision of our lives.  It started 2 weeks after we moved here in the middle of December.  The aunt we were staying with kicked us out so she could get high with a buddy.
       We spent the next year and a half at the rescue mission.  On several occasions my insulin was confiscated by staff members, the milk resembled the consistency and smell of clam chowder, and I had to be apart of the "Hobo Zoo" as Haywood Street Church did their shelter tours.
       Luckily, or so I thought, Homeward Bound stepped in and furnished an a p argument.  I learned there that there was no way to explain to friends that the loud bangs were not fireworks.  And that because I accepted a mattress from Homeword Bound, I would be liable for the bed bug infestation that occurred.
      Healthcare and jobs in this town are a joke.  I have had healthcare providers refuse into write insulin prescriptions or at least take a week.  It seems every one has the same idea, "Lets open a restaurant and pay minimum wage in a town where you are expected to make $2,500 a month"..
       I am hoping my mother and I can move to a thriving metropolis.  Where we can prosper and flourish.  The money will be used strictly for moving and some housing exspenses including utilities and security deposit.
