please help we are About to become homeless tomorrow
Organized by: olga lopez
Hello everyone, My name is Olga and I am terrified that we will be homeless by tomorrow. The love that I feel for my Son and our dog has brought me online in search for help. I went through a horrible divorce in November 2015 and we have been living in a hotel for over 3 months with my son and my ESA Service Dog. During this time I was searching non-stop for a place for us using a realtor and doing my own legwork everyday. It's been over 3 months and I could not find a place that would accept us with our dog. I have exhausted all of the funds I had left after my attorney took $20,000 paying for our hotel, our food, my dogs medication because he has epilepsy and a rental car. I left the divorce with a broken car and have tried three times to repair it with no luck. I have not spent one dollar on anything that was not an absolute necessity and I still could not stretch it enough to sustain us. I am terrified that in two days on Saturday I can no longer extend my hotel and will be homeless. I have no one to help except for my dear elderly father who has been my support and my angel through this. He is a retired Vet and lives in a small studio and his landlord does not accept more than one tenant so we are not able to stay with him. It is hurting him badly that he can not help us financially as he only has his retirement and it's not enough. I would not be here if I had not tried every other option. I am losing strength and I do not know where to turn to. My father has offered to move in with us so we can take care of each other but the initial move in costs to rent am apartment are so much that we are not able to this now. I am my son's only surviving parent as his father passed away in 2007. I sustained a serious injury that day as well and have been recovering physically and have been suffering medical complications from that injury. I was a stay at home mom during my recent marriage and was not working. I have finally applied for Disability but it will take several months and my son is out there searching for work. I am also searching for anything but I am restricted physically so it's taking me a little longer. I never thought I would be in this situation and on the Internet asking for help but I have to try everything I can to be able to stay with my son and our dog. I feel like I am at the end and I need to find a way to raise money to find a place for us and for my father as well. This is extemely hard for ne to do and I am ashamed that I am asking for help this way but I love my family too much and I can not bear the pain of not being with them. Thank you for reading my story.
