hi, i'm nana! me and my family have been struggling financially for a year now, which is why i decided to start this gogetfunding earlier in 2023.

i'm making this page to ask for help for us to get back up on our feet a bit this year. we have rent is coming up every single month, overwhelming bills and need to get food for three every month, also meds for my grandma and my mom. with this total goal, i'm accounting for the taxes that both this website and paypal have.

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 and currently we don't have many people in real life that could help support us. in 2020, my grandma came to live with us full time, and that added onto our expenses a lot, since she also needs meds for her pulmonary emphysema treatment. 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, since things got worse after she was once again exposed to her abuser last year; and it got bad enough that she wouldn't get out of bed for months. she didn't have money to start a proper treatment at the time things started getting bad as i was also struggling with debilitating agoraphobia, so she prioritized paying for my meds. her recovery has been slow and our resources have been scarce, and that has made me her main support through everything.

since october of 2022, i have been making posts and asking for help since we currently only have about $200 a month 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, with the help of a family member, finding another place to rent so we wouldn't end up with nowhere to go, but we're still struggling a lot. with the eviction notice and the lack of funds, we lost a lot of our stuff, since we weren't able to move properly and they changed the house lock, preventing us from getting our stuff out, including furniture and various household/personal items. my grandma in particular ended up losing most of her clothes, my mom also lost all of her bedroom.

in 2023, unfortunately, 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 yea. they are not giving this back to her and we were left struggling even more as a result.

i'm asking because if we don't manage to keep this house, we won't have anywhere to go; i’m using all the money i have irl to pay for rent and have nothing left for anything else. thank you to everyone who has helped us so far through kofi and other means. even sharing this around already helps so much, thank you for reading.

(full disclosure, i am not including pictures of us or personal information besides my name on here because of my mom's ex-boyfriend, who constantly tried to find and harass us for years.)
