Hello, My name is Michael Greyfeather. I'm the President of The Transology Association Inc. We are a 501(C)(3) Public Charity dedicated to helping the Homeless in York, Pennsylvania.
People experience homelessness due to reasons beyond their control such as, loss of jobs, sickness, disabilities, bad economy, inflation, family abuse, destruction of their home by severe weather conditions, and loss of livable income, just for starters. I was homeless many years ago so I know first-hand how it affects you having to face the hardships of homelessness and one of the reasons I started this association.
The number of people experiencing homelessness in York is growing and shelters that give these individuals a roof over their head for a night stay are all usually at capacity leaving many without shelter. When shelter space is unavailable which is a major issue here, many stay outdoors, in abandoned buildings, in cars, or in make-shift cardboard shelters on sidewalks or in fields and wooded areas. This leaves the unsheltered homeless population exposed to additional danger, illness, and potential arrest due to trespassing.
Transgender homeless have challenges finding shelter in York when they become homeless just simply because they are transgender. The homeless shelters available in York have rules they have to follow which prohibit transgender individuals in finding shelter that relates to the gender they are living as unless they have documents providing proof of their gender change. This is a major issue for transgender people who are homeless. It puts them in dangerous situations and open to bullying and attacks on their person. This is another reason I started this association.
Our goal is to gain enough funds to lease a building to help provide shelter to the homeless, specifically those looking for transgender-friendly shelter options, or provide all homeless with temporary shelter by paying for motel or hotel stays until an appropriate shelter space becomes available.
Your donations will help us to help the homeless in York, Pennsylvania by providing the shelter needed to house the homeless and help them get back on their feet and back into society and a better life.
If this go fund me reaches an individual who has a building that is vacant in York, Pennsylvania or any other location that has been sitting empty and not used please consider donating it to help a worthwhile cause for the homeless in York or in other locations.
Please help us reach our goal so we can begin to give the needed help the homeless need. Every donation is tax deductible. It does not matter how big or how small your donation is, every penny helps us to reach our goal.
