Hope for those who have none

Individuals with disabilities, Seniors and Veterans have limited income and as rents rise and their income remains the same most of these individuals are at risk of becoming Homeless or will become in less than a month. The average rents starts at between $1200-$1500 and those prices are rising daily. We have established a fund raiser to help with this issue the link is as follows: https://www.youhelp.com/hope-givers-for-those-who-have-none/donate

This fund can help the elderly, disabled and Veterans whose income is only between $650 $1000 and their rent is now $1200 until we can find them alternative housing in their price range (which is next to impossible).

Without your assistance these individuals will be living on the streets. The average life span of a homeless person on the streets in our County especially a Senior, or an individual with a disability or a Veteran is 6-8 months. PLEASE HELP!
