I am a single woman on Social Security Disability having trouble making ends meet with basic living expenses. I'm facing repairs I can't afford and unexpected raises in bills for necessary services. I just need a little breathing room.

I'm a single woman with no family, living on Social Security Disability. I am largely housebound because of my disability; am a non-smoker, non-drinker, non-partier. 

I am lucky enough to own the apartment I live in outright, but even with that good fortune, being able to stay in my home and remain independent is a struggle.  I still have to pay homeowner association dues which come to nearly half of my monthly income, there is no such thing as "affordable housing" where I live, if I can't keep my home I will end up living on the streets.

I value my ability to live independently,  I worked hard for 40 years only to find myself no longer able to work due to my disabiiity, with no safety net to fall back on except the Social Security disability of less than $900 a month.  I don't like asking for help but  I have exhausted what few programs there are in my area for folks like me.

My utility bills have gone up to levels that I can no longer afford, even with the low income discounts I receive. I can't afford cable/satellite tv or subscriptions to streaming services (also can't afford the tech). My 10+ year old washing machine is on its last legs, making horrible banging and grinding noises in even the most gentle spin cycle and refusing to drain completely.  I live in fear of any other appliance beginning to fail.  I worry that come November I won't be able to pay my property taxes...

Please contribute to my fund to help me get current on my utilities a few other bills, fix the washer and if anything is left over, maybe pay my property taxes. I just need a little breathing room!

Thank you!
