Your Favorite Jawns Housing Fund

Your Favorite Jawns is a Black and queer artist collective based in Philly. We are artists who host and curate events around the city to create community and dialogue through art, music, and outreach.

We are also best friends living together. After the initial strike of COVID-19, all 3 of us lost our jobs, surviving solely off of government assistance. Additionally, after spending her entire savings, Shirmina’s car was stolen 5 days after she purchased it, creating a further financial setback. A little over a year later, months of unemployment aid being cut, and being threatened with eviction, we are just now getting back on our feet with new part-time incomes. However, with only 2 months before our lease ends, we have accrued a $6000 debt to our landlord and a $2000 past due balance to PECO for our electricity. We absolutely have to move somewhere else very soon, but can not do so in time in conjunction with paying back our debt. We are asking our community, friends, and family to help us with our move! The funds will go directly to our landlord, PECO, and moving expenses like deposits and rent. We are only asking for half right now in hopes a rental grant is provided to us. We thank you for protecting our housing <3
Our CashApp is $YFJ215

With love,
