It's time to move on.
My name is John, and I am a 49 year old person with disabilities. My only income is SSI, and I have a problem. My five year relationship with my domestic partner has ended, and I need to move on. The relationship ended because she and I grew apart. There are no villains in this story, it's just something that happens. We loved each other then, and now we don't. Unfortunately, I have no resources to draw upon to make this move happen. I have no savings, and none of my family can help. I am currently still living with her and her family. It is a tense situation and cannot continue indefinitely. Eventually I will have to leave, and with my fragile health I would not survive being homeless.
My current residence is in Florida, but my heart is in Illinois, and I want to go back. I will be starting over with very little. A few personal belongings, clothes and my collection of books. There are a lot of expenses in moving. Then there is the damage deposit on a new apartment and getting utilities started. Since I have no furniture, I will also have to get everything needed to furnish an apartment. From a bed to dishes to a television set, I need it all. Even shopping at thrift stores, that's a lot of money. I have friends who have offered to help, but the amount of help I need is beyond them. I'm praying for a miracle here, please help it to happen.
Any donation is welcome, nothing is too small or too large. If the goal is achieved, I have enabled overfunding. Every dollar counts. Please help me to start my new life. Thank you so much for your generosity.
