Help Us Pay Bills And Move Out of Bad Living Situation

Help Us Pay Bills And Move Out of Bad Living Situation

From Riley Knecht

I'm raising money so that my boyfriend and I can pay leftover bills and move away from a scary and sometimes dangerous living situation involving my boyfriend's alcoholic father.

Hi, I'm Sawyer (the short one in the photo). My boyfriend Jack and I are dealing with a time of financial and mental hardship. I've been working full time and Jack has been unsuccessful in getting hired anywhere during his job search. We have been struggling to manage both paying bills and having enough food, as the person who pays our rent at the moment rarely helps with groceries and often buys himself several bottles of alcohol, and then he drinks long into every night. He tends to get angry while drunk and blame my boyfriend and I for issues we cannot solve due to our financial situation. We also often have sleepless nights due to a combination of his drunken screaming and times where he falls and injures himself, requesting help from us. I have been unable to adequately provide for my boyfriend and I even while working a full time job, as I am still making minimum wage and have many bills to pay and thousands of dollars in student loans to pay back after dropping out of my previous college. I am genuinely afraid of how our financial situation will be affected when I start up going to community college in late August 2022. I need help so that I can feel safe when I sleep and know that I will be able to buy food and survive. If I am able to get even part of this goal, I intend to use it to complete some bill payments as well as find a 2 bedroom apartment for myself, my boyfriend and a friend of ours and pay the deposit and first month's rent.
