Help Janine to get back on her feet

Have you ever thought of what you would do if you no longer had an address? A mode of transportation to get you around? Clothes? A shower? Food? Think about that for a minute. Now think about trying to fix all of that when being around and talking to people make you panic to the point of being mute ad feeling completely ill.

This is what life is like for Janine Smith. Janine is a brilliant artist that can create a photo realistic image out of a blank canvas. Janine also, however, is homeless due to a severe social anxiety disorder.

This GoFundMe is to help her get off the street. She currently needs car insurance (impossible to get without an address), a job (impossible to get without an address), medical attention (guess what - can't get health insurance without an address), and to get her dog re-registered as a service animal (something else she can't do without an address.) What Janine needs most, is an address to call her own.

We're going to set the goal low for now, but we are hoping to be able to extend the goal. If we could get her into a hotel for a few nights, that would be a good start.

Janine is also willing to work for this money. She specializes in people and pet portraits. Should you feel like you would like something in return for your donation, that can be arranged. 28405162_15210739110_r.jpeg28405162_15210739300_r.jpeg28405162_15210739450_r.jpeg28405162_15210739680_r.jpeg28405162_15210740400_r.jpeg28405162_15210740610_r.jpeg28405162_15210740730_r.jpeg28405162_15210740870_r.jpeg28405162_15210741010_r.jpeg28405162_15210741550_r.jpeg
