  • Single Mother with a 22 month old son desperately needs her home safe to live in

    Hello , my name is Jennifer Jankowski, i live in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania , own my house and i am low income, currently on public assistance i earn my money taking care of my 78 year old stepfather who has dementia, he currently moved into a safe catholic high rise with my mother and left behind his home in a near by neighborhood, the house is in poor condition, he was living there for many years hoarding items to the point where the house was so full of items that all he had was pathways he could navigate from room to room , he even had junk in his shower, did not bathe regularly and ate cold canned goods, it makes me happy that we got him out of this dangerous situation and moved him into a safe, clean healthy environment, my job has been to go to his old home regularly, clean out the junk and sell anything vintage and valuable for him to assist him and i financially, the burden of this horrendously kept home has been on my shoulders, i have had one other person helping me but since i am very low income i could not afford to hire a professional cleaning company to assist me, also i have a 22 month old son which is another full time job in itself so between working long hours at his home cleaning and selling what i can i also have to take care of my son and make sure he gets the proper love and attention that he deserves as a child, i also help senior citizens who live in this high rise with house cleaning and specialize in Alzheimer and Dementia care for the elderly, every now and then i will work with the autistic community as well, the reason i am writing is because i am in desperate need of MY HOME getting remodeled, my furnace is over 80 years old, it is an old cola converted furnace and i have radiator heat, every winter i hook up carbon monoxide detectors because i had several furnace men tell me the furnace is very unsafe and definately needs replaced, last year i contacted my local cathoilc charities and a furnace company Tudi got in touch with me and a man came out and basically said since i was pregnant and low income that i would be a perfect candidate to receive a new furnace free of charge, every year shortly after Christmas the whole company, and their families also give away approximately 20 furnaces to low income homes that desperately need them, well needless to say Tudi never showed up and i was forced to stay in my home pregnant with an unsafe furnace through the winter, also the wiring in my home is bad, i have fust boxes and old knob and coil wiring in my home, i begged, pleaded and prayed for anyone to please help me remodel my home to make it safe, my home is paid off i have no mortgage i just owe almost $17000 towards my home equity loan and that has been delinquent for some time now, i am grateful to God that i have not received a letter where they wanted to come and re claim my home, then my son and i would have no where to go, i have aunts and uncles with money who refuse to help me,i exhausted my resources locally begging for help and i have no where else to turn, i am willing to do just about anything at this point to receive help, i would even do cleaning jobs or charity work for everyone or anyone just to get my home back in order, i understand there are many people out there with so much money that they just spend it on vanity items and i am here begging and praying to God daily for a miracle, i am a good woman, pray daily, i am good to people and try to be a fantastic mother to my son because he is such a miracle in my sons father had some addiction issues that he is overcoming and we have been separated for some time now he is getting the help that he needs,and i keep him in my prayers daily as well because ultimately i would love to have my family back and eventually be able to pay forward the charity that God would bless me with to other people. I guess contacting your company is one of my lasts ditch effort for a miracle to happen, and if this is not possible could someone please tell me where to turn to ? I am a sincere religious loving woman who believes in treating people good and people have told me not to be afraid to ask for help, so that is what i am i would love to get on my feet and help my father who was diagnosed about 10 years ago with HIV, he struggles day to day just like i do, and i am grateful that i still have him with me in my life because he has helped me out tremendously with the care of my 22 month old son Dillion and he deserves a break as well, i want to be able to focus on spending quality time with my family and not worrying day to day about my living situation and being deathly afraid every time the summer ends and the cold weather is right around the corner. Please i hope God touches someones heart today and reads this post and can help out my family. God Bless you all and i will continue to pray to God that he will help me. Thank You for your time

  • Mom recovering from surgery . Will never be able to afford to retire. Needs a better place to live .

    Our mom is a wonderful woman and has always done the best that she can to provide for her family. It seems that her life has just become more difficult since our dad left in 2001. There were times that she had to sell her personal belongings just to put food on the table. My brother and I had no choice but to work while we were in school because if we didn't we could barely make ends meet. Life has gotten better and my brother and I have our own lives. Our mom is still stuck in the same mobile home that she has had for at least 27 years. It is starting to fall apart but none of us can afford to purchase a home. She has been out of work since June of this year with a herniated disc that was pinching on the nerves and making it impossible to walk. She had surgery back in July to fix the issue but is not fully recovered. She will more than likely lose her job because she can not handle the back braking labor she has done her entire life after this surgery. I wish that my brother and I were in a position to help her get a house. The reality of it is that we are all struggling to make our way and we wish that she could retire one day but that will never happen because she has always put her family before just want her to have a nice place of her own that she can relax in without having to worry so much about the repairs that need to be done but that she can not afford. It has taken all of our effort to stay afloat these past few months and we could really use some help.moreless
