Prevent 4 Chaffey Students from being Homeless

My name is Moises Rosales, 4-year Chaffey College student and I currently serve as the President/Student Trustee for our Chaffey Students. GoFundMe asks for the campaign managers to have social security cards,  so I found a trusted person to withdraw the funds for me, I have been undocumented for almost 12 years now. 

On December 2018, I moved out of my parents' home into a shared house with 5 other Chaffey College students. A very nice developer offered his house and the start of a program to help homeless students get back on their feet. 

After three months, third-party finances and different expectations for the program, we have been asked to leave the house by March 1st. 

With the previous rain storms, I am glad we were able to get two students off the flooded streets, one veteran who works over-night to avoid sleeping in the street, and two undocumented students with no family around. 

One of the students managed to get her life on track in three short months. She is getting her own place closer to campus. As for the rest of us, it will take a little longer--and we cannot take three steps back when we have made so much progress. Living expenses are difficult to maintain, which is why we need help with the first two month's rent and deposit--plus money for beds, washer/dryer, and a refrigerator. 

To afford our third-month rent and utilities, and I will help our other roommate find a fair-paying job near campus. 

We are currently looking for a place to stay near the cities ofFontana, Ontario, or Rancho Cucamonga.  Typical rent varies between $1700 and $2000 and deposit usually equals one month rent. We have absolutely no home amenities, so the left over will be used to purchased used home appliances. 

Education is tough, and even tougher for those of us that have to figure out a system that was not meant for people like us to succeed. 

I ask you, wholeheartedly, to donate and help us reach our campaign goal so that we can all succeed in our education. This is my last semester at Chaffey, but for the other students, they have a long way to go. 

I will never forget every single one of you who helps us, and if you cannot contribute financially, please email me at [email redacted] and let me know how else you can help.

Thank you all very much!
