Kidnapping Support Fund

$9,726 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 35 people in 56 months

I am a disabled kidnapping survivor, and a current victim of violent crime and police misconduct. I need your help to save my life. I pay your help forward with support services for all survivors of kidnapping and abduction.

I spent my childhood in abusive homes. In 1980, after being placed into kinship care at age nine, I was kidnapped by my abuser, who escaped conviction due to negligence by the San Diego, CA elementary school he stole me from.  As an adult, I have needed a quiet, stable home and lifestyle to care for the disabilities caused by child abuse. But in 2009, my life was destroyed by domestic violence: I was abused and injured by a man who invited me into his home during a financial crisis. The result was financial destruction and home loss, and despite evidence, San Diego Police supported my perpetrator. I never recovered, financially, physically, or emotionally, and all of the home security I needed to cope with my past was stripped away. By 2011, I began to face my past, and to seek justice, compensation, and the disability aid I now needed to survive.

Since I began seeking justice and treatment, however, I have been stalked and threatened by my perpetrator, maltreated by law enforcement, and denied state Victim Compensation, Social Security disability, and other social services, causing additional strain and trauma, making me increasingly unable to function well enough to earn income, and leaving me impoverished and struggling to survive. I worked my way out of a domestic-violence shelter and homelessness, and back into housing, but I still continue to face regular crime, civil-rights violations, and hardship:

In 2013, I received an Emergency HUD Grant for housing from the County of San Diego to help me recover and rebuild, but the landlord who took the government funds given to him to provide me with stable housing, instead terminated my tenancy only two months after move-in, while I was still injured and without resources. The resulting actions caused more harm, the move nearly killed me, I was forced to take a quick rental that is harmful to my health, and I have faced additional stalking and threats of violence by a man with intimate knowledge of the tenancy case and my domestic-violence case.

I am now crippled, critically ill, and unable to pay for urgent, basic expenses, such as rent, car payments, utilities, and grocery items.

These years of additional, prolonged trauma have resulted in increased disabilities, permanent injury, and autoimmune disease, including severe Chronic Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), advanced Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE), Fibromyalgia, adrenal hyperfunction, adrenal exhaustion, chronic pain, complications to childhood rickets deformities and Maledung’s deformities, chronic trapezius strain, spinal nerve damage, and dental nerve damage. I cannot afford treatment. It is crucial to my disability needs that I remain in a stable home and retain the use of my car, but today, without immediate help, I will lose my home, my car, and my life. Please help me to stay alive until I can receive the compensation and aid I need to survive.

While I seek help for myself, I am serving other crime victims who have experienced the same hardship I have. When attempting to find help, I found that my kidnapping was a complex, unsupported problem, and that I was not alone. While there are many services for victims of domestic violence, rape, stalking, and child abuse, there are almost none for victims of kidnapping.  Survivors of kidnapping experience a unique trauma and particular hardships when attempting to find treatment and navigate the justice and social-service systems. We are an underserved population, and we all need help. So, when you help me now, I pay your help forward with peer support services for other kidnapping survivors: I and other volunteers are building what is so far the only US organization to provide international support services for all survivors of kidnapping and abduction. We have the potential to make a difference in the lives of thousands of kidnapping survivors in the future, but I need your help to save my life first.

Will you please help to save my life, so that I can finally gain stability, medical treatment, and continue to support other kidnapping survivors? Will you please donate right now?

Please learn more about what is happening to me, how you can help, and the support services my organization provides. I promise to pay your help forward:

Thank you,

Tiffany Diane Moon

Donations are closed due to the death of founder, Reverend Tiffany Diane Moon.

Stalking kills: The death of Rev. Moon was directly caused by stalking, HUD fraud, harassment, intention to cause disability injury, and intention to cause violence or murder by CA attorney Karyn F Boulais and CA landlord Jesus Contreras, who colluded to harm Rev. Moon. Please report any further stalking activity or denigration of Rev. Moon to police, as described below.

Fact: 35% of stalking incidents end in violence.

Please help to prosecute a stalker who targets crime victims and disabled women. Contact us with your information today.

"We are experiencing stalking on multiple online media sites, by phone, by private message, in person locally, and by other means, by a person calling himself "John Martin" & "Juan Bonillavilla" on Facebook, and who is related to, and believed by authorities to be, my Escondido, CA landlord, Jesus Contreras or his CA attorney Karyn F Boulais. Contreras accepted Government HUD funds paid to him to help me recover from crime with long term housing, and instead injured and nearly killed me by immediately forcing me to move, now without those emergency funds. Boulais knowingly committed several crimes and placed me in danger of violence and death in the course of her actions for Contreras. Per his threat to stalk me, the perpetrator is also using multiple other online IDs. This is a crime that creates an immediate threat of violence to me by my childhood perpetrator via dissemination of my home address, and creates a threat of deadly harm via false information from my adult domestic-violence perpetrator and two felons in sensitive court documents. It also places any resident at my previous addresses in danger of violence by my perpetrator, endangers me at my current address, and endangers the survival of this life-saving support service for other kidnapping survivors like me. This issue is being directed to local and Federal courts.
If you receive a message from John Martin, or anyone else directing you to personal information about Tiffany Moon, or if you see claims that this service is fraudulent, please contact us immediately. Alternately, please contact the San Diego Police Department at (619) 744-9500 (reference Crime Report #14025967), the Escondido Police Department at 760-839-4717 (reference Crime Report #14-7709), or the San Diego County District Attorney Investigations office at 619-531-4040.

Stalking is a crime. Cyberstalking is a crime. Learn more:

Helping a stalker is a crime. Any person who conspires to help stalk you is also guilty. This includes sending harassing messages to the victim, viewing the victim's official or personal records, making false reports about the victim, or taking other unwanted action against the victim at the behest of the stalker. Slander and libel, such as false claims that cause hindrance or harm via electronic media, are also crimes. Learn about cyberstalking laws in your state:

John Martin is not only stalking me. He has regularly targeted one of the officers and support-group administrators for my foundation, who is also a disabled woman. Why stalking a disabled person is particularly heinous:

Why do stalkers target crime victims and people with disabilities?

Why stalking a violent-crime victim is particularly heinous:
A stalker who targets a violent-crime victim is causing a threat of deadly harm, not just by that victim's perpetrator, but because the victim is already struggling emotionally, socially, legally, and financially. Most violent-crime victims suffer from PTSD at some time. PTSD is a deadly disability that causes suicide, and deliberately bullying or causing more hardship for someone with this condition not only causes more suffering that may profoundly affect the victim for years or a lifetime, but it is an attempt at causing death.

Why stalking any violent-crime victim hurts everyone:
When stalkers target any crime victim, more and more crime victims become afraid to speak out, to get help, to stop the perpetrators who go on to hurt more victims. Victims learn that it is more dangerous to speak out about being hurt than to just stay silent, and this allows perpetrators to hurt them more. And stalkers, and other perpetrators of crime, learn that they can continue stalking, raping, violating, killing. The consequence of this is an increase in crime and traumatized, disabled adults, all requiring more tax dollars in crime management, social services, and welfare funding. A stalker hurts society, not just the person he is stalking.

Address-confidentiality programs for victims of stalking:
I belong to my state's address-confidentiality program. The dissemination of my address information online is a violation of CA Gov Codes 6208 - 6208.2 and carries a minimum $4,000 fine for violators such as the stalker above. If you have been a victim of crime, you have the right to be safe from location discovery. Please ask about your Secretary of State's address-confidentiality program.

Please donate:
I am suffering because of the results of crime, and the additional harm caused by the stalker above is making matters worse. I will not survive, and my service for other kidnapping survivors like me will not survive, without help. No on who has survived violent crime should be victimized this way. Can you please help today?"

I have a #terminalillness, and I am about to lose my #home and #utilities. I needed to raise $2,000 before September 1st. This is an emergency amount only, not related to the $9,000 of my $50,000 goal already raised, just to keep me in my home, not yet enough to treat my illness. Please, will you #donate now? Can you ask others to donate today?

Why this emergency help is needed:

I need this help now because I am facing homelessness and critical illness after my landlord stole nearly $5,000 in an Emergency Government HUD Grant that was intended to help me recover from crime with stable housing, and he instead forced me to move immediately after he received the HUD funds, injuring me permanently in that move, and leaving me with no funds to survive and no ability to earn enough income to pay rent or continue my fight for Social Security disability. An Angel Donor provided me with the replacement funds I needed to move, but I am now back to square one, and in more critical condition, unable to recover without help. My landlord's actions were based on slander by my domestic-violence perpetrator, the very crime that HUD was attempting to help me recover from.
