We have a house! We can have a service dog for me! But we still need some help with getting security deposits for utilities turned on. All these trips back and forth getting things set up, moving loads of stuff, it's killing us!
We (Lea and Erik) have been living in a motel for over a year, ever since Erik landed a new job in a new city (Cheyenne WY). I have some severe health issues and have been recommended to get a service dog and get out of the apartment at the motel. But I'm still waiting on my disability to be approved by the Social Security Administration, so the only income we have is Erik's. The motel is so expensive, it eats up 65% of our total monthly income. Food and medications take up the rest. We can't save up the money to move into a house or apartment. Also, we are on the second floor and I has trouble with stairs, which traps me in the apartment for literally days or weeks at a time. We DESPERATELY need to get out of this motel, and there's no way we can unless we get some help. The Goal is $3500. Enough to pay first and last month rent in advance, security deposit, and pay movers to help us move our things out of the apartment and storage and into the new place, because I'm physically incapable of doing it, and Erik can't do it alone. I absolutely hate begging for money. But we have no choice. We have been trying for over a year to get out of this motel and we're no closer today then we were when we first moved in. Can you please help us get the deposits for rent and utilities and get moved into a regular house or apartment so that I won't have to deal with the stairs, and enable me to get a service dog for my disabilities?
