Healthy Home for Gabe & Lyssette

We are a queer disabled couple in love and looking to find some housing stability so we can tend to our health and our dreams as a family.

 This has been a difficult year. We have both had multiple surgeries and procedures that resulted in a loss of work hours for us, and we are rebounding from that now, but we just unexpectedly learned that we will be losing our housing. 

     Moving is always expensive, but finding a wheelchair accessible place for two people with mobility issues and two support animals is especially challenging, and the loss of work earlier in the summer means we currently have no savings. Paid time off is also tapped out.

     We are asking for help in any amount in order to cover the costs of move-in deposits for a new place, a moving van rental, and help with cleaning our current space when we leave as our health issues prevent us from doing a thorough job ourselves (Lyssette will be on bed rest for another week post op) and then we have to be in a new place by October 1st. 

     If we beat our goal, any extra amount would be used towards some of our health needs for example: 

repairs / maintenance costs to health aids like Gabe’s wheelchair or Lyssette’s sleep apnea machine 

copay for MRIs / surgeries  to keep Lyssette Cancer free another year and genetic testing for Gabe’s mobility issues

If you can't contribute but can share, we would really appreciate as many eyes on this as possible. 

Thank you!
