This is my house.
This car is where both myself and my boyfriend sleep, keep our things, and get to work. We have lived in three different cities in the past six months, working seasonal and temp jobs just to feed ourselves and keep gas in this car. It is more organized in the summer, but due to snow I cannot empty it and replace it all neatly. I am forever grateful for it, but recently our luck has run dry.
This car has had no power steering since we acquired it, the system is electrical, so not only can we not fix it with some fluid, but the mechanics we’ve brought it to do not have the equipment and each one has said we must take it to the dealership, which is so much more expensive.
The same break that causes the power steering problem, also leaves the speedometer and gas gauge broken. We have run out of gas at least four times because we have no way to track our progress other than our memory and guessing. We are constantly going under the speed limit for fear of getting pulled over due to speeding, in which we would loose everything. We also have no heat, and though the winter has been harsh, we have many blankets and body heat to keep us from freezing, though it feels like we are on the brink of turning into ice every time.
We FINALLY have a housing opportunity from one of our friends, but here are the problems:
The muffler is now broken as well as the no power steering, gas gauge and speedometer, or heat.
We are in Rochester and our living arrangement is two hours away, and we are officially out of money and gas.
We have eight days left that we are able to stay at a friends house where we are right now, after that, we are completely without.
I wouldn’t be asking for help in any other circumstance, but after all the hardships I’ve overcome, I cannot let this opportunity for a better life slip away from me.
We need $400.00 to fix every problem in our car, but we can manage to make it operable once more with $270.00. It costs $60.00 in gas to get to the town where we can finally have a home. At minimum, I require $330.00.
