Help the Patrick family

Hi my name is Ashley. The reason I’m on this app asking for donations is because my family and I are in need of a place. My family was a very bonded one until problems started occurring 2 years ago. My dad started acting strange and was being very weird so obviously we were worried about him. As time went on he started doing things that didn’t make sense and eventually had to go to an insane asylum because he ended up having schizophrenia. When he got out I helped him find a job and everything was great the first month. But sure enough, the problems started back up all over again and everything is worse than the way it was before he left. All the bad decisions he’s made since he came back have led to us losing our home and car and everything else we loved. Because of this my mom left him and we’re all trying to move on now and be better without him. My mom, sister, brother and I have no where to live and we’ve been struggling looking around for a place for a couple weeks but we can’t buy or rent anything because my mom is an immigrant. I didn’t include her in the picture because she is afraid of getting deported so to not make her feel uneasy I just wanted to show my siblings and I. We’re trying to build my credit score and get something in my name but I’m only a high schooler so I can’t get a loan. We’ll need straight cash to buy or rent anything right now. Please help us with anything that you have a dollar per person goes a long way. We just need enough for at least a month of rent the cheapest is around $500 for a one room. We just need enough for one month to get back up and get adjusted to our lives without a father figure in our lives. Please help us out. God bless you
