Hi My name is Mike,

In September of 2013 I had a severe stroke, which left me barely mobile, and weak on my right side.  I have came a long way in recovery, but am still unable to work. 

A Freind helped me out with rent and utilities for November, and through ebay sales I was able to pay my rent in December and January.  However, Feburary sales fell short, The Doctors wish me have Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy which at this time I cannot afford.

I live in Indianapolis Indiana, have done so for the past 20 years... I love it here.  That being said, I am out here alone, away from family and friends that could offer me assistance or help me in my time of need.  I am being evicted from my apartment, and now that the time has come for a move I wish it to be home.

I have tried many social services in Indiana to no avail, Food Stamps awarded me benifits, then keeps telling me i need just one more paper and they will restart...(they have told me that three times).  I applied for Wishard avantage when I was in the Hospital in September, but my application seems to been overlooked and they dont have a reason why.

Last month, knowing that I was  not going to make my rent, I scheduled a meeting with the Trustee, only to be turned down for assistance, (I made the appointment on the 29th, they d 2-3 days for an answer, i gave them 5 because of the weekend I did not recieve my answer until the 12th.  That the way of my luck dealing with social services) Hence my current situation. (I made $1267 dollars in Dec and January... Paid 505.00 and 541.00 in rent, $135.00 and 185.00 in electric but they say i wasted my money???)

So please help, I have asked to raise $1500 that will at least get me and my stuff to WV I'll worry about what I will do when I get there.  If I should make this goal or beyond know that all funds are to get me moved, and possibly set up in a suitable living situation upon my arrival.
