Family Being Displaced... Again

Family Being Displaced... Again

From Noa Rose

My family is being threatened with displacement yet again this year, after attempting to relocate with family, being harassed & dealing with police contact, & abandoning our primary means of transportation.

TYSM FOR SUPPORTING ME AND MY FAMILY THRU THIS SH*T!!! Y'all have no idea (or maybe you do) how hard it has been to be homeless with little kids and having to trek all over the country when we didn't plan to. We hadn't planned on moving to Augusta this soon but here we are. If you can please keep boosting this, I need $1640 to move in and I'm a few hundred dollars short of that. But I'm omw to pay the holding fee of $100, and I paid $485 for a weekly rate because the place won't be ready till the 28th.

I'm writing a little essay-book-travelogue about this and other experiences (it's already partially written) and it'll be open for pre-order as soon as I finish updating my website for Ghetto House Press!

More Info

December has basically been a horrible month. As some of y'all know, my abusive mother conned us into moving in with her over a period of months. She has a 4 bedroom home in Indianapolis. That turned out terrible and ended after 4 days, even though we spent 2-3 months planning and saving for the move. Apparently my mother was out to sabotage me and she attempted to weaponize the police against my partner to split us up. We ended up having to raise money to stay with the kids in a hotel for a week or so, during which we tried to fix the truck she had given me. Long story short, we sunk a bunch of money into that truck only for it to die in Ohio. So we abandoned the truck, piled up into the Uhaul, and my partner drove us the rest of the way to NYC.

Suddenly we are once again being threatened with homelessness, because his stepdad decided that he wants his youngest daughter, who is 23 years old, to come home, so we (as in me, my partner, and my toddler) either need to move into the smallest room (which we cannot do because his brother whose room it is might have COVID and has been sick for the past few days) or get out. My partner told him that his sister gave us the room and that we aren't moving because I need the extra space so that I can work and have my desk. He said we can get out.

Not sure how serious he is but having already dealt with enough bullshit this month, I am unwilling to figure it out. I'm currently ill and I'm in the middle of writing this book. I won't have any money until the 2nd of next month. My plan was (one again) to land with family, rest and write my book, and move to GA by April 1st. Obviously depending on family is not working out, so this is my only other option.

Update #3

we made it to augusta! we are in the process of finding an apartment and are staying in a hotel. so we still need to raise the rest of this money to be able to have what we need to rent a place. otherwise we're just bleeding money until we secure something. we got approved for one place but are waiting to hear back about what else they need paperwork wise. so if y'all can keep sharing this we would really appreciate it. thank you so much to those who have alredy helped so much.

Thank you to everyone who has donated or shared this. I know it's the holidays AND a pandemic and so I really appreciate y'all's generosity. We told them to give us a week to get the funds to get outta here and recover (from illness). We just need to raise at least half of this to get out of NYC and drive down south. There is a lot of tension here and so we just tryna remain cordial. I reserved a truck and a hotel room this morning, and so the most pressing amount of money I have to raise is for these two things. Then I'll need to figure out first/last month's rent and shit.

thank you those who have got me started. tbh i hate having to ask for help AGAIN. however, i just can't afford to deal with the threat of homelessness. if i had known it was gonna be like this i would've stayed my ass in the Midwest. If i can raise half of this over the next week then we can make our way to GA and try to find an apartment within 1-2 weeks hopefully, and avoid a shelter (because, COVID). it's shitty but it is what it is.
