Yvonne & Bitsy Need Your Help

Donation protected

I've been working with Yvonne for 2 years now as one of my Living/Dying Clients. The sessions we have together are volunteer-based & support her emotional, physical and spiritual healing. While I've been able to offer Yvonne a level of guidance in navigating some of life's difficulties, she has been in a very unfortunate financial situation. With a fixed retirement income, significant unexpected medical expenses, and excessively long waits for the senior assisted living options she's continuously following up with, I thought helping her launch a GoFundMe might be helpful.
Yvonne is an amazingly caring individual with a beautiful heart. As an older woman with no family in the area or immediate help availible, she is hoping a compassionate community might come to her aid in this difficult time.

Yvonne (age 73) and Bitsy the cat (age 15) are in a financial bind with housing costs.

"In 2020 we moved into a renovated chicken coop that was pricey for us. We intended to move within a year into a wonderful and affordable senior low-income housing complex whose wait list we had been on since 2017.
Well, we've lived in our coop for 3 years now and have just been told it will be another 12 to 20 months before the senior housing is available. Other rentals in the area have doubled in price.
Every month I've had a shortfall of $500 due to social security covering my rent but not my basic expenses.
I've depleted most of my retirement funds trying to meet my essential expenses of food, utilities, and medical bills. Bitsy's a frail old girl who needs blood pressure medicine and I've had years of very compromised health myself. A recent dental expense of $3000 created more financial stress. If housing does not open up for 20 months, the shortfall will be $15,000 and I will have no retirement funds left.
My goal is to raise $6,000-15,000 to cover & help with the wait time to get into AFFORDABLE housing. Once we have affordable rent, Bitsy and I will be able to take care of our expenses. We just need help getting through the waiting time.
A gift of $500 would cover 1 month of expenses including medical. Even a $20 gift would help pay for Bitsy’s medication.

I graciously welcome any offers you might be able to make. And my deep gratitude to anyone who could help us through this rough time. Bitsy and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts."
