I am fundraising for a laptop computer that has good configuration so I can do my programming on it. I was a victim of domestic violence and human trafficking and became homeless in 2014 and then 2016. I have been working but my situation made me disabled, with PTSD and other symptoms, and I had to stop working and seek domestic violence services. I need to get more settled down and learn programming so that I can work and take care of myself. First I want to find stable work -- after having an income, I will be able to find housing and not be homeless anymore.
I like to spend time painting as a healing practice. I have sold some of my paintings when people have asked.
I was a victim of human trafficking and domestic violence and that is why I am currently experiencing homelessness and seeking employment and housing.
I want to finish my coding boot camp. After finishing my certificate, I can get better opportunities. After that, I will need a car to be able to get to work. And finally, I hope to get into housing once I have these goals covered.
What makes me happy is encouragement, support, and appreciation from others. It also makes me happy to give back to the community and help others in need. Volunteer care-giving with dogs also makes me happy - I've done that before and it helps me feel better. I volunteered for Salvation Army for four months (Loaves and Fishes kitchen). I have a dream of going on a vacation - to Hawaii! That's my dream. It makes me stay alive.
I'm raising money for basic needs so I can get stable housing.

I'm raising money for a cross country Amtrack rail trip so I can celebrate my son's college graduation in May 2018, visit my brother recovering from a stroke and his family, spend some time in my hometown, and also visit some seminaries as I am working to return to college to study theology to prepare to be a chaplain.
I'm raising money for basic needs so I can get a job through the department of vocational rehab and buy grocery.
