My friend S is in need of support to start over. For reasons that will become clear, I can’t provide too much details, but the gist of her story is:
S finds herself in an unsafe and untenable situation. A man whom she barely knows has been stalking her, including attempting to enter her residence in the early morning hours while she was home. The police are aware of the situation, but the man has made efforts to conceal his true identity (hiding his face with hats/hoodies in case there is video, providing what they believe to be a false name, etc), which makes it challenging to find, arrest, and prosecute him. While this man is still on the streets, it is not safe for S to remain in her home.
Just a few years ago, S had to pack up her life to escape a domestic violence situation and has worked very hard to rebuild. It caused a great deal of emotional and financial strain, and she now finds herself in a similar situation. Again.
All donations will go to S to help her get a fresh start, to include finding a new place to live, moving or storing her possessions, legal fees, and helping with the debt she has been paying down that she had to accrue when she uprooted her life before. S is incredibly generous with her time and her spirit and has already overcome so much, and I hope the generosity of her friends, friends of friends, and even strangers will ease the burden of transitioning to a new place so S can focus on her physical and mental safety. Thank you all in advance for helping her!
