Help A Single Mom & Her Child Rebuild

Hello Everyone,

Thank you for taking the time out of your day to read about my story. I left a 15 year relationship with my abusive husband a year ago. I had to move me and my child out of the state that we were living in and relocate elsewhere because of my ex. I took out an order of protection against him, but he did not care about that and continued to harrass me, which is why I relocated. I am a very hard worker and have basically worked my entire life (well, since I was 13 y/o). I was able to get my Batchelor's degree while working a full time job and while being pregnant with my child. I did not let the fact that I was pregnant deter me from completing my goal (I started school before I got pregnant). I graduated when I was 6 mos pregnant with my Son, and I am very proud of myself for doing so. I would normally never ask anyone for help (especially financial help) because I have always been in a position to do for myself, but I do not have any family support and need help.  Me and my child have been living out of a hotel since we relocated in September 2020. I recently got a job, but I do not start work for another two weeks, and I have depleted my savings. We are on the verge of homelessness and I am not really sure where to go and I do not have a car. So I am asking for your help with keeping me and my child off of the street. Now that I have a job we can move into an apartment, but I do not have the funds to move in (first months rent/deposit), which is the reason for my fundraiser. I am asking for help to get an apartment. With everything that is going on in the World I know that times are hard for everyone and I truly hope that you all are safe. I am very thankful to you for whatever it is that you can send to us, it is greatly appreciated.
