End Homelessness for Keon Provide Narcolepsy Aid

We are Bridging The Gap Independent Living and Resource Center. We provide services to disadvantaged youth and young adults who have "Aged Out" of the
foster care system and are homeless or other young adults who are in
disparaging circumstances that caused homelessness. Unfortunately,
homelessness can occur quickly due to unemployment, the lack of
family support, extreme mental anguish that causes debilitating paralysis, and disabilities, such as, narcolepsy.

According to MayoClinic.org, narcolepsy is described as a chronic sleep disorder that causes extreme daytime drowsiness. People with narcolepsy find it difficult to stay awake for long periods of time. Narcolepsy can be accompanied by a
sudden loss of muscle tone (cataplexy), which can be triggered by strong
emotion. Currently, there is no cure for this condition, but it can be managed
with medications, lifestyle changes, and assistance from others.

Currently, we are paying hotel fees for a homeless young adult male who
is plagued with narcolepsy. We are out of funding and need immediate
assistance. We are raising money to provide transitional housing for him and
other youth and young adults who have fallen on extremely hard times. Donations will help Bridging The Gap provide transitional housing, food, training, and access to over-the-counter medicines that assist with bringing a level of normalcy to disabilities like narcolepsy.

We ask that you donate to this cause to assist homeless young adults like Keon. We thank you in advance for helping Keon and other youth and young adults
experiencing homelessness.
