Missed Work to Heal From Domestic Violence Injuries, Please Save My Home

My Story:

I am a single woman who has prioritized building my career and setting up a sturdy foundation so that one day if I were to start a family, my children would have a much more stable and secure upbringing than the extreme poverty I grew up with. When not working, I've dedicated much of my spare time to rescuing and rehabilitating animals from abusive and/or life-threatening situations. I love nothing more than letting people meet and interact with these rescues, then hear their stories and what they came from before. I work full time to support myself.

Unfortunately, in 2017, after being single for a number of years, I began dating someone who very quickly became dangerously violent and abusive, to a life-threatening point. Thankfully I was able to escape that dreadful situation; he was arrested for multiple counts of battery and false imprisonment, though he bailed out within hours each time. For the survival of me and the ones I protect, I took my animals and fled my home state of California, over a thousand miles to a destination where I knew nobody and nobody knew I was there. My employer worked with me to arrange for my position to be transferred, so I could maintain my humble income while attempting to have a fresh start and new beginning. To my horror, last month in August, my ex from whom I had fled ended up traveling thousands of miles to find and track me down, and showed up at my house. In mid-August he was arrested for multiple counts of battery and felony false imprisonment. Among other things my face was very bruised and my nose was fractured. I've been told he has an ankle monitor on to prevent him from attempting to harass me any further, and is looking at over a decade in prison for what he did to me. To add to this horrible situation, I missed a fair amount of work in August due to my injuries and now I fear I will lose my home. I need your help with my rent.

If I receive your assistance for this emergency situation, it would help me further establish stability in this new beginning that I sought out so heartily. Everything is so close to falling into place. I hope and pray that it will do so. Your help would keep me and my rescue animals safe and stable. Thank you, and deepest blessings and gratitude from me and mine, to you and yours.
