My girlfriend and I have been struggling to make it by, we’ve both recently turned 18 and neither of our parents belp with the funding situation. She has recently left her house from her abusive father, before she turned 18 he closed their joint bank account and removed all the funds to his, that was the money she was saving to get her own place when she was able to legally. We both have jobs but we’ve been struggling to make ends meet having to pay high hotel fees or by the day to stay with a friend. We would like to be able to save up enough money to put a down payment on an apartment or something and have a more stable place to stay. I don’t want to seem needy but anything will help in this situation as we have no clue how to make things work. I’m not asking for any amount in specific just anything would help to be able to save up, as we barely make it paycheck to paycheck with enough food and a reliable place to stay. We would use the money to help recover our savings after not being able to put away any significant amount since we’ve started living on our own. For anyone wondering we live in Minnesota where the temperatures outside are scorching these past couple weeks and we’ve had to sleep at a park 3 times. It really sucks going from an okay situation and having a plan to better things, down to rock-bottom where we feel we have nothing. I’ve never been the type to ask for assistance and I work for the things I need/want but as of lately it’s just becoming harder to get by and stay healthy and happy. Our plan from here on out would be to work as many hours as possible so we don’t have to worry too much about having a place to stay (overnights if available) and maybe earning enough to get a place with government assistance or something. She is still I’m school (senior year) so it’s not really an option for us to stay with family because they all live out of state and we also have minimal transportation to get there. I’m hoping someone is kind enough to help out in these dire times even if it isn’t much it’ll still put a smile on our faces. I apologize if I’ve repeated myself of seemed redundant at times it’s really hard to be in the right head space while juggling a lot of issues and stress.
