Help me move out of a toxic household

My name is Sam. I'm an 18 year old nonbinary, and this is my ESA, Daisy. I'm making this fundraiser because I need help moving out of a toxic household. I live with my dad, and the living situation is extremely stressful. I'm consistently made to feel like I do everything wrong and it's really detrimental to my mental health. I have severe depression, OCD, and ADHD, and he constantly tells me that I'm faking all of it and just want to have something wrong with me. I am shamed and belittled for my emotions, and my mom is no better. I've been physically abused by my mother for years, and she acts the exact same way when I try to talk about my emotions. Each day it seems like my depression gets worse, and I really am suffering.
I may be getting kicked out soon, and I have nowhere to go. I'm trying to save up money for a van to live in, but I have to cover my dog's vet bills and I can't afford a car because of it. I just want me and my dog to be able to leave this situation and finally feel safe and comfortable, but I'm stuck. Anything helps, I just want to be able to finally take care of myself. Thank you for reading.
