My family and I desperately need help raising money for a security deposit so we’ll be able to escape our current living situation. Currently we (my mother, two sisters, two dogs, five cats, and myself) are all living in one small room at my older brother’s house.
My mom and 16-year-old sister sleep on one twin bed together, and my older sister and I share a bunkbed. There’s absolutely no room for privacy since we all live in close confines with one another, and neither of us have anywhere to escape because we live in a town where we don’t know anybody.
Our pets are not allowed any access to other parts of the house, other than the backyard, so they’re all essentially stuck inside this room, causing it to smell really awful. We are unable to keep the room clean due to the confinement of all our pets.
Tension is high in the house due to frequent arguments between my mom and my brother as well as his wife, and it’s putting strains on many of our relationships.
Our family makes an extremely low income, and because rent here is so much, my mother doesn’t have the capability of saving money to move. Because of this, it’s left up to my older sister, my boyfriend, and I to raise the money to move my family, and it’s difficult to do by ourselves. In all, we have a total of $500 saved, but it’d be nice to have help raising a bit more. Any donation helps! Please help us get out of here!
