Help me raise money to safely leave home

Hello everyone. I really didn't want to have to do this, nor did I ever think I would be pushed to the point of asking others for financial support. 

Last Sunday, I came out as bisexual to my mom, and since then things have gone completely downhill. She has been ignoring my presence. She won't even look at me when she's home, and she only ever yells at me if she speaks to me. I'm no longer comfortable here, and I'm afraid she will kick me out at any point. So, I've started to put together funds so that I can move out.

I don't have a lot in terms of savings, and even though I have a job, I am a full time student. When I start the quarter on Oct 1 my income will decrease drastically because I won't be able to work as many hours.  I have family I can stay with, but it cannot be for a long period of time. The longer I take the worse things are getting.

Any amount you can donate as soon as possible will solely be used to helping me move out of my home safely, and finding a temporary place to stay until I can secure a more permanent solution. I am so grateful and thankful for any support you can give me. I know how desperate this sounds, but I wouldn't be asking for help if I didn't absolutely need it. Again, thank you for any amount you are able to donate. I really appreciate it.
