Dear Fellow Federationists:

Please read the below solicitation, which was recently posted to the list of
our Greater Baltimore chapter. As the President of our student division (of
which she is Vice President) and as someone who has worked closely with
Ellana for the past two years, I can personally attest to the outgoing
personality, ever-present enthusiasm, and personal responsibility which are
evident in everything she does. I am sure that she will be a great asset to
any home in which she rents a room. If you live in the Catonsville area and
would be willing to help, please contact Ellana off-list at
eemcrew at gmail.com. Your services will return innumerable dividends to you,
to her, and to our efforts to support blind students across Maryland.

Subject: [Greater-Baltimore] Desperate Student Hoping to Move

Hello there everybody,

I apologize in advance if this isn't quite appropriate for this list, but I
am a blind student currently in a bit of a sticky situation and looking for
some help. Due to various circumstances surrounding transportation and
overall mental wellness, continuing to live where I currently do has been
posing a number of serious problems in all aspects of life for me and I have
become very much set on attempting to move out of my family's home and into
the Baltimore area. I have been scouring through craigslist postings for a
couple of months now and putting out ads on other roommate-finding websites,
but my search has been turning out very little success and I am becoming a
bit desperate to figure something out. I currently don't have a reliable way
to get to school or really leave my house much in general, and I have
exhausted essentially all options with DORS, so to that end, I would like to
reach out here.

I am currently looking for either a room to rent or a roommate to rent with
somewhere within the city, preferably as close to Catonsville as possible. I
am open to lots of different areas of town as long as I can get to a
community college nearby, and I am currently looking at $500 a month as the
top of my comfort zone. Again my ideal location would be Catonsville, but I
am also very open to Riverview and various other parts of the city. If
anybody is looking for or know somebody who is looking for a roommate or a
renter in the area, or if any of you would be willing to rent out a room to
a desperate college student, I would be incredibly grateful and would very
much love to hear back from you! I would be more than happy to tell you all
about who I am and how I would be as a roommate or tenant, so if anybody has
any information that could be of use or would be able to help me out, please
don't hesitate to contact me off-list.

Again, thank you so much, and I hope to hear back from somebody soon!

The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the
characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the
expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles
between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life you want;
blindness is not what holds you back.
