My name is Kathia Badillo Feliu, and I am a Hurricane Maria survivor and mother of a 3-year-old. I work full-time cleaning at one of the theme parks in Florida and am the sole supporter for my daughter, my mother, who has chronic health issues, and my older sister, who is developmentally disabled. I am trying to help my family after we had $6,800 stolen from us that we put down on a rental home. We now live with our three senior dogs (9,13 & 16 yr old) in a motel that is being foreclosed on because the owner has not paid the utility bills and has millions of dollars in code violations. We do not know where else we can go cause of the Covid I had have to use my savings to survive and I am trying to prevent us from living in my car wish is not in a very good condition.
I am asking for help so that we can get enough for an apartment/home to rent or a safer and more dependable car (in case we don’t have a option and we have to sleep in it)
