Corey Alexander is at high risk of homelessness and needs your help.

Two years ago, Corey was hit by a car. Ever since the hit and run, they have been struggling with substantially increased PTSD symptoms and chronic pain. These symptoms worsened at the beginning of 2016. Corey was no longer able to work and went into full time psychiatric treatment. After treatment, they were not able to return to work, and will not able to return to work in the near future (if at all).

Corey has been living on state disability (SDI) for the last year, and has applied for federal disability (SSDI), but the application process takes a long time. Right now, it is not clear when SSDI will kick in; and state disability is running out in May.

There is NO chance Corey will begin receiving SSDI in May. In other words, at the end of May, Corey will be without the resources to pay for shelter, food, and medication. Corey's disability advocates are telling them that they are at high risk for homelessness.

After being hit by a car over the weekend, Weezie went into the ER and found out they needed surgery. After surgery, a series of traumatic incidents occured: a nurse broke two of their fingers and they went untreated for days, forced psych evaluation, involuntary admission into multiple mental health facilities, and more.

Weezie is now home safely, but there are going to be lots of expenses, so I'm hoping we can help fund some of this.

If cuts to Universal credit go ahead, hard-working families will be left struggling to pay for things like school shoes and the weekly shop. The fact these cuts will hit hardest for families who want to work more hours just doesn't make sense.

No one should be left out of pocket because they want to work more. Will you please use the Autumn Statement to reverse plans to cut support for hard-working families?


There's an option to donate after you sign.

Sorry, no formal posting template has been sorted out yet!

Periods are annoying on a good day. But they are a whole lot more difficult to deal with when you don't have a home or a bathroom or funds for sanitary products. That's the reality for THOUSANDS of homeless women everyday. But there's something we can do to change that. Period.

Sanitary products are kind of difficult to come by. Homeless shelters do not always provide them and the few public bathrooms that offer them, do so at a price. We are calling on Procter & Gamble, the multinational consumer goods company that produces ‘Always’ sanitary pads and ‘Tampax’ tampons, to uphold their self-proclaimed 'responsibility charter' by changing this. Now. We want them to donate a small but REALLY important proportion of their sanitary products to homeless shelters across the United Kingdom: a programme that would benefit so many vulnerable people.


This is specifically lobbying for Procter & Gamble, who manufacture Always and Tampax, to donate a proportion of their sanitary products to homeless shelters in the UK. I think it's a great idea, and I think lobbying for corporations to do their bit in general is a good plan.
