17 and homeless

Requesting: $100

Location: New Bern, NC



I'm 17 and homeless. I just need some money in order to help me get on my feet and find a inexpensive place to live. My mom kicked me out because her boyfriend abused me and she didn't believe me. I have a job but I only make minimum wage, which is not enough for me to pay for a place to live on my own. I was living with a few friends but our lease is up now and a majority of them moved back into their parents houses.

I've contacted my local women's shelter and they said they could not help me because I was not a victim of domestic abuse. I'm trying to work with social services in order to find a low income based home, yet that is also difficult because I am only 17. I have been living on my own since August 2012 and this is the first time I have had no where to go. I managed to finish high school a year early and work 30 to 40 hours a week.But, it is hard to continue working without any place to sleep or bath.

If I get at least one hundred dollars it will help me work towards finding a inexpensive apartment. Once I have found a place to live it will be easier to find a second job. I hate having to ask for help but I have no other options at this point. I hate sleeping in random places, and feeling vulnerable all of the time. I just need one hundred dollars to help go towards a place to live.
