Help Jude Move Into A Safe Space

Hi, my name is Jude Valentin, I am an online content creator, photographer, and storyteller on the internet. I live in the city that never sleeps and I have lived here for almost my whole life. I want to raise money to get on my feet and live on my own because my current living experience is toxic and is impacting my physical and mental health.

I have acted as a caregiver for my family since I was eight years old and my brother passed away. Moving out would not absolve me of this responsibility but would put space between the toxicity and I, so I could continue on my mental health journey and set healthy boundaries from a distance where it is safe for me to practice what I am learning in therapy.

By not having my own room and having to share an apartment with family who does not understand me or what I do, I constantly run the risk of outing myself to homophobic family members. Apartments in NYC are not cheap and I cannot work a normal 9-5 as my back spasms have gotten so bad while living here that I cannot stand for more than 2 hours at a time.

I will need the money asap to move into an apartment with Arielle where I can foster my own caring and loving work and living space. My work with flourish and I will have more time to give back to my communities.

I need to move out in order to do the things that I want to and should be doing with my life. Being a caregiver in a toxic environment is taking its toll on me and is so exhausting, any little bit of support is helpful.

Thank you so much.
