My friend, Hailey of 16 years is having a very troublesome time at home and with her college. She's 19 years almost 20 and still currently lives with her mother. Her mother is a alcoholic and has always been very mean but ever since Hailey reached her adult ages her mother has gotten very abusive towards her. Hailey has suffered from mental illness since highschool and her mothers abuse has only made things get worse. Hailey receives financial aid for her school and receives the pell grant. After hearing that Hailey would be getting her unused money from the grant her mother has started making her pay rent and demanding money from her in general. Hailey is a full time student, working on becoming a nurse and does not receives a lot on her refund because of how expensive the classes are despite going to a jr college. Her mother takes nearly all of her money, leaving her unable to afford extra college expenses when they come up. Recently her college made a mistake with her financial aid giving her more than they meant and now she has to pay it back but does not have the money to do so and its hurting her education. She recently started looking for a job and she only recently started to because her mother never allowed her to work before and is still reluctant on her working. I have been trying to talk her into moving in with me but she keeps making excuses as to why she cant. She's afraid of her mother and how she'll react. She also wishes to have money of her own before moving in with me. I am extremely worried about her and wish I could help her but I live out of town and am unable to get to her. I managed to talk her into making a GoFundMe and am sharing it here with you in hopes someone will be willing to help. She doesnt explain everything on the page but everything I have said is true. You dont have to donate a lot or at all but please share at the least. Anything helps. I just want my friend to get out of a unhappy home and have a chance to start living the life she wants.
