Cat Lady Needs Car and Housing

I am a 60-year-old cat lady and artist.  I have been homeless in the recent past due to financial difficulties for a year and a half, see the Homeless Cat Lady campaign for more info on that experience.  I need a newer vehicle and a low cost rental for September of this year for me and my cats.  My current van has 220,000 miles on it but is still running.  I did find a room but the lease is running out.  I currently work part time.  (I don't have any retirement account, investments, SSI or SSI disability or anything.) The $4,500 is to cover a newer vehicle with lower miles that doesn't need repairs anytime soon, and help with moving costs and most importantly a new place to call home.  This would mean alot to me and my cats and be a great opportunity for me to have a place for us to call home while job searching for a second job and moving forward with my life. 

My education is in the field of graphic design. I have 5 years of college including a Liberal Arts AA degree, Graphic Design AAS, Web Design AAS, and Communication Arts AAS plus 3 years of on-the-job experience.  I design t shirts and my website is FantasyArtDreams.com where I display them.  Check out the Homeless Cat Lady facebook page it has natural health tips and is my way of giving back to the community.  Thank you.
