Hello all, I am a 24 year old female living in the shelter system in nyc. I aged out of foster care when I was 20 where they coerced me to sign out. With no family, no support I did the best I can. I babysat kids while trying to hide my mental illness. It had caught up with me. I grew up being abused, I can never use it as an excuse but its indefinetly a reason. Having epilepsy and being there are currently no housing programs in nyc, raising money will help me to find an apartment hopefully a first, last and security deposit. I'm so scared and worried all the time. I'm a really strong person and a really good person please help me find a new home! Great thanks and appreciation for all who can understand my situation.
