hi, i'm nana. me and my family have been struggling for over a year now, and i had a previous fundraiser for us last yea, but we still need help surviving.

i live together with my mom and my grandma, and previously our main source of income came from my mom, who has been out of employment since the pandemic hit as she has been struggling with PTSD, severe anxiety, extreme panic attacks and depression. this started around 2018, when her boyfriend at the time started stalking and harassing our family daily, intimidating and threatening my mom which greatly affected her mental health. this went on for about four years, and since then she was forced to cut out most people from our lives to prevent him from getting information about us, meaning we lost all of our support system at once. in 2020, my grandma came to live with us full time, and that added onto our expenses a lot, since she also needs support because of her age and pulmonary + memory related issues. since december of 2021, we have been getting by purely with the help of loans and selling our things. i am currently unemployed and have been spending full time helping my mom, who is both physically and emotionally dependent on me, and my grandma, who needs the support because of her age. my mom didn't have money to start a proper treatment until recently, and her recovery has been slow.

since october of 2022, i have been making posts and asking for help since we currently don’t have enough to pay for rent, food, meds for both my grandma and my mom, my mom's treatment and any other essentials. we are unable to get help from the government at this time beyond a small monthly payment to my grandma. in the beginning of 2023, we received an eviction notice from our old landlord after we were unable to pay for rent. we ended up finding another place to rent so we wouldn't end up with nowhere to go, but with the eviction notice and the lack of funds, we lost a lot of our stuff, since they prevented us from getting our stuff out. additionally, in 2023, someone cloned my grandma’s bank account and left her with a huge debt that made the bank withhold most of her money throughout the year. they are not giving this back to her and we were left struggling even more as a result.

as of lately, my mom’s treatment has been progressing, but i am still unable to get a proper job because of the constant need to support my family. to make matters worse, we have been having issues with our current landlord and their family, which happens to be our neighbors, in which they disrespect our space, privacy and safety by doing things like: recording us without our knowledge, entering our house without our knowledge, and dropping things like pipes and various construction materials on us from above (once resulting in the breaking of a door and almost injuring us in the process). our landlord and their family has made it abundantly clear that if this is an issue to us, then we need to leave, but we cannot afford to move right now. this has heavily affected my mom's treatment, since our neighbor has been verbally and physically aggressive, and we feel very unsafe here.

i'm making this new page because we, unfortunately, still aren’t financially stable. we have already been unable to pay for rent as a result of all these issues, and we really need to avoid another eviction so it doesn't cause any more harm to my mom's recovery. as of 11/04/2024, our landlord has said that we have until the end of may to leave the house, so that is the latest update we have. we need to reach this goal so we can continue to stay safe while my mom recovers, especially with the new urgency to move agai, and until things are stable for us to work again.

thank you for reading and thank you to everyone who has helped us so far. please, if you read this through, even sharing this around in any way you possibly can already help so much. and if you can help us with any amount, it makes the world of a difference.

(full disclosure, i am not including pictures of my family because we have had issues with stalking before, as i mentioned above. if you have any questions, feel free to reach out.)
