Help escape domestic violence, & afford housing

**(deadline September 14th)**

Hi, my name is Nyasia. I am a DV survivor, but my ex is back, threatening to k*ll me. I’ve stayed in several DV shelters, homeless shelters, etc and still not safe from him. I’m asking for help with moving states and starting over, please. After researching and calling around, there’s a secure housing partnership for blk women that reached out to me, but it’s located in TX. I need help getting through this month. The trains are pricey lowest I could find from NY to TX immediately is $311.

Around April 2022, my location was doxxed while living in a homeless shelter that already was unsafe (a racist area). At the time, I struggled from a rape pregnancy and couldn't afford to take care of the baby, nor did I want to. I have suffered from severe abdominal pain, a fractured wrist, and several scratches to the face. My ex-fiance was the one in motion of all of this and still has extensive access to me. Being violated, assaulted, getting pregnant and then losing the baby took a punch at my mind as I'm still recovering.

Disability is taking longer than usual, and my medications stopped coming in. I need to eat, afraid to dig into my funds. Diagnosed with BPD, PTSD, and depression all over 3 1/2 years ago, and it’s been rough financially/mentally with no support. I don't have transportation; all of my real support is gone, and as embarrassing as it is to ask for money, this is an option. I can't work physical jobs, and getting online with no equipment, space, or help is hard. If I can reach my goal, all funds will be used towards basic survival needs. (Toiletries, food, transportation, medicine, etc.) Thank you for any help given. This aid is highly urgent. Please share around!
