Relief Fund

Hello, my name is Daniel, and I'm a 21-year-old undergraduate student that will be facing homelessness in less than a week.

I'm currently living on my own, due to family problems that were affecting my physical and mental health and others around me I had to leave home and live on my own in August. I moved into an apartment with roommates and was able to receive a job as a Dishwasher that paid well. But due to a late financial aid being processed for school due to Covid-19 I had to pay out of pocket for my classes which set me back on rent and bills and got me days off of work which got me let off.

Due to the pressure and stress of having to find more work and try to make more money to clear my rent and other bills I was faced with and bad mental health, I ended up losing focus on school to find another job and trying to figure out other ways I could make money. Due to all these things happening, however, I became very sick beginning of October. I thought it would go away through sleep on its own but when I was puking one morning I saw blood, I was near fainting when I said I had enough and went to get checked out. I was relieved from work last weekend upon my manager finding out from a doctor's note I gave him I would have to stay out of work until I'm clear from Covid-19 tests. Even though I would tell him every day how my condition was worsening he would say he doesn't care and to work through it.

Now I have a week to be out of the apartment I'm currently staying at. I don't have any savings or any money to my name as of right now due to paying rent and other bills. I wanted so badly for everything to just go right and be self-sufficient but it's not working for me and I need help and I just feel so alone knowing I have nobody else that can help me so I'm using this as a way of reaching to others for help.
