Please help Dej with rent for March!

Donation protected
hi y'all, i'm deja! i am a 42 year-old queer person of color with disabilities. i am in need of help in order to keep living in my apartment. i have no income at the moment, other than the $203 in general assistance each month that i receive from the county--the majority of that goes towards paying my utility bills. the little that's left over is barely enough to get household items and laundry money for the rest of the month. i am still trying to look for a part-time job as well as i have for the past few months, but nothing's come up yet. i currently participate in a visual arts program for folks with disabilities which may help me with getting a little more income in the future, but it won't be quite enough to help with my rent.

i'm also in the process of reapplying for social security disability as well since i've been denied three times already, but the process takes quite a bit of time from start to finish. local rent assistance programs are either out of money or i don't meet all the qualifications they require to be helped. my landlord is continuing to work with me and help me as best as he can to make sure i can stay here. we have an agreement for now that if i don't keep up with rent each month, i'll get evicted--i have no friends or family to go stay with if that happens, so i really want to avoid eviction!

my rent is $630 a month. with your donations i will be continue to be able to have a safe place to live, keep my mental health steady, be able to attend the visual arts program i go to every week (i drew the art for my pic!), and be able to stay in contact with the social workers i keep in touch with throughout the month. if you have donated to my fundraisers in the past, thank you so so SO much for continuing to support me this far.

thanks for reading and helping me out—have a good day!
