Keep Alexa From Being Homeless

Hi! I am asking for help only because it has gotten to the point I fear I may lose everything. I decided to build a tiny home because I have struggled finding housing (due to the fact apartments, even low income, don't consider financial aid as income and I don't have family as a cosigner.) I bought a bus (as cheap as possible) and have begun renovating it, doing it all myself. This will eventually be such a blessing and help in my life. Unfortunately unforseen bumps have delayed all my renovations and have put me at a point in time in which I'm scared to lose it because the place I have it on will no longer allow it and I can't move it to a RV park until it has the requirements/basics. I don't even plan on having walls or a fridge, just electricity and plumbing. The bare minimum. I have the flooring, subfloor, and some stick and paste tiles that I will finish putting in this week while studying for a physics final! I am so close!

About me: I'm a full time mechanical engineering student at the University of Texas at Austin. I struggle with complex PTSD, anxiety, and depression from childhood abuse and sexual assault. I consider myself an ally to marginalized communities. I'm passionate about making a difference but I can't until I take care of myself first.

DONATIONS: They will go to the basics, electricity and plumbing (I have to pay 800$ for both) and 100 for a tank, 600$ for the other supplies such as goodwill sink, cabinet, etc. If you have any questions about how I plan to use the donations FEEL FREE TO MESSAGE ME!!

Also if you would be willing to donate skilled labor (electrivity or plumbing) it would be AMAZING! (austin, TX)
