The Story

We've found a place (after a run-in with a scammer), and it's available immediately!  Unfortunately, this means an outlay of 3x the rent - March rent for the house we're in now, March rent for the new house, and the security deposit, equal to one month's rent - which is is almost two times our first paycheck alone (without such pesky things as food, gas, and other necessary bills).  We're down to the wire on finding a new place to live, and in Portland's cutthroat rental housing market, an opportunity like this is one that we can't afford to let pass us by, not with so little time left to secure housing before our current lease ends.

In the event that this house falls through - always a possibility in this rental market - the funds we raise will go toward whatever place we finally secure.  We really have our fingers and toes crossed for this one, though!

60% of our goal!  That's just mindblowing to me.  There aren't words enough to thank everyone for their support through this incredibly stressful time; even three days ago, we'd hit a point of not seeing a way out of this and were honestly considering what we were going to do when we ended up homeless, and now things are finally coming together in a way they never could have without the generosity of so many kind people.

I woke up this morning and discovered we're almost halfway there!  (It's a good thing I looked before I put my makeup on or it would have been totally ruined when I got all teary-eyed.)  Thank you guys SO much - for donating, for signal boosting, for your well wishes and crossed fingers (every little bit helps!).  Honestly, for the first time since we started this process, I feel like maybe, just maybe, things are going to work out.
