The Story

Hi, I’m Miranda and I could really use some help. Until a few months ago I was living in NYC to go to school and start my career in graphic design. Art has always been something I am passionate about and through my school I made good friendships with other artists and felt really secure about where my life was headed. I had a job and housing and everything was going really well until I was suddenly let go from my job. As a result, my housing situation changed, and I was faced either with the prospect of living on the street, or returning home to my parents in Alabama, who have a history of mental and physical abuse.

Returning home was not as easy decision to come to. While I was at school my father would stalk the addresses where I was living using google maps. I am also forced to hide my sexual identity from my parents, especially my dad, as they are not supportive of LGBTA+ rights, and whenever I speak out against his bigotry it always results in huge fights and sometimes physical violence that leaves me bruised.

I am desperately trying to find a way out of here so that I can get a new job and get my life back. My aim is to get back to the place where I felt safe, with the family of friends that I made. I just want to work, make art and try to spread a little happiness in the world.
My current goals are to find a place to live and be able to make sure that my 2004 Impala can make the drive. If I have to I will live out of my car, but I’d really rather find somewhere safe to room while I get back on my feet.

Any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated, thank you

I just want to update everyone. I'm currently safe at a friends house while I try to find a solution to permanent housing.

Thank you again to everyone. My car has been fixed up and is ready to go. I'm completely blown away by the kindness of everyone. My next step is to get everything packed into the car and get away from here.

Thank you to everyone who has donated so far. I'm getting my car looked at this week to make sure it can make the journey. Hopefully I won't need new tires.
