I ran away from my sister's and her worker's verbal abuse, physical violence and economical abuse and became homeless. My sister didn't allow for me to go to school - to take ESL classes, computer or Reiki. Now I want to take the time to learn as I am free from my sister's abuse. I want to learn Reiki to clear people's diseases that medical cannot clear and to help my son's disease. We loved each other as mom and son but he no longer recognizes me as his mother. The Reiki is a private practice and costs a lot. I am going to be a senior and need to hurry! If you can give a donation, it would help me with my dreams!

I am from Japan. After I divorced in Japan, my sister invited me to live here in San Francisco. I have been living in the U.S. for 20 years.
I was living with my sister and her worker but they both became abusive and started violence with alcohol. Finally they shut me out from my home when I came back from the emergency room. I became homeless in November 2016.
I recently became housed in June 2018 and it has been really important for me. I hope again to be able to sleep with my lovely cats on my bed like I used to.
I would like to get a job and go to school for Reiki.
I hope to reunify with my four cats once again, now that I am housed.
I'm raising money for rent so I can support my current housing**.
I'm raising money for pet food & grocerries so I can had food for myself and my pet**.
I'm raising money for back rent so I can hold onto my rent-controlled housing**.
