I don't know exactly where to start or what to say, but I guess the beginning is always a good place. I may know you in person, over social media, or maybe not at all, but taking the time to read this and possibly make a contribution means the absolute world to me.

My name is Jenna and Im 21 (will be 22 on Thursday) and yes, I still live at home. I'm very close to my mom, who raised my siblings & I, as a single parent. With that being said, and with her having to work full time to give us everything we needed, we didn't have time or money to do many extra activities. Out of guilt of not being able to put me into those acting classes or workshops that I wanted as a kid, my mom sold her fully paid house in Florida to move out to Los Angeles County and help me to pursue my dreams. The house we sold in Florida was co-owned, so we of course had to split the sold amount in half with the other owner. That really didn't give us much left over after we made the move out here to Palmdale (North LA) with what little we had and our pets. The last bit of the money went into the first few months of us living here as well as the furniture needed for our house.

With the economy the way it is, its been extremely hard to find jobs here. Granted, its much better than in Florida but being here 6 months and us not having any steady income yet is really hard. My stepdad has not been able to find a job at all despite the many interviews he's gone on. The only one I could find is an unpaid photography internship at William Edwards Photography as well as a YMCA Summer Camp job which pays well but I will not start getting paid until July. My mom has a job at a non-profit which is a nice little company but its small. She works 3 days a week and her income alone is not enough to pay our rent.

Bringing us to now... Remember when I mentioned that the rest of our money went to furniture? Well aside from our bedroom furniture (and kitchen table), we've sold absolutely every bit of it to pay for last months rent. Now we have no money to pay for this months rent which is due (at the latest) this Thursday, June 12th. Ironically enough, thats also my birthday. Making this fundraiser page is my last option and as much as I hate asking for things, I don't have any other choice. I spent all yesterday posting craigslist ads for my laptop as well as other smaller items, and today, I called around to close to 30 churches for help. None of them have any resources to help with rent money. I'm at a loss, so I'm turning to you.

Please, if you can find it in your heart to make a donation (however small), it would make a difference and keep my family from becoming homeless. Thank You! Jenna
