I's that time of year again: the Summer Income Slump is hitting our queer, disabled, neurodiverse family and we're looking to our extended community's support to make it through. With your help we can continue making a magical summer for child and alike on a shoestring budget.
We are 2 adults (Veronyx and Joli), a teen, 2 kids and one giant puppy with a single income between us. Subsidized housing and modest SSI benefits help carry us, but the hidden costs of poverty have hit us hard this year, and Joli's education job includes a summer break. We need a boost to cover bills and rent for August and September, at which point the income stream resumes.
$800 will cover rent + bills due at the beginning of August, with a small margin for groceries. At that point we'll raise the goal to cover the beginning of September as well. Thank you in advance for all your love and generosity!
