Help Maya and Mars Find Safe Housing

TW/// suicide

Hi friends, Mars and I are seeking to move as soon as possible out of NYC to find affordable housing and a safe environment. I’m not one for sharing how my personal life is going but I realize I will die if I don’t get out of my current living situation. Long story short, I live in an emotionally abusive household and for the last 6 years I have had multiple suicide attempts, all stemming from my toxic relationship with my family. I’ve gone to countless hours of therapy and have come to the conclusion that  the only way I can move forward is to leave my living situation. This is really hard for me to put out there for many reasons one of which being that if my family finds this, my plan to escape will be made nearly impossible. I’m really scared that if I stay here it’ll be my demise. Please if you have anything, it would mean the world. And if nothing please share. I ask if you are friends with any of my family on social media, please make sure they can’t see this post. The amount I’m asking for this amount of money for me to transport Mars safely, fees, rent, and transportation.
