First I will give you a summarization of my circumstances. I moved to Austin for education and employment. When my rommates moved I was unprepared and therefore became homeless. Due to disabilities, I cannot do physical work work at this time. I require assistance with shelter, tuition, and supplies, however I am only asking for assistance with education costs for now.
A natural disaster caused me to flunk a semester and a disability caused me to flunk another semester, causing me to owe ACC for a grant I was awarded. I must repay this grant and pay for two semesters by other means before I can receive financial aid again.
My minimal costs to return this semester do not include food, clothing, shelter, etc. I will camp out again to return to college if that is what it takes.
$ 1,139.00 college debt
$ 1,020.00 12 hours tuition
$ 25.00 semester bus pass
$ 763.13 textbooks
$ 499.00 laptop
$ 500.00 supplies and taxes
$ 3,926.00 total
I thank you for your help. Your generosity and compassion are greatly appreciated.
