My mother has been one of the best people I've known , with that being said she deserves to have a home that she can call home , in 1990 my younger brother was hit by a car she cared for him despite his head injury and immediate medical needs and attention he required , in and out of the hospital she stayed with him thru it all , raising a child that could not talk or walk was a challenge I'm sure of at the time I was 10 , in 2004 my brother passed away at age 20 he lived a life beyond his expected time due to my moms care , his death took a toll on her emotionally she ended up having a stroke that caused major damage to her brain and some physical issues as well ..she bought a trailer for herself that is basically one to be condemned living on $650 a month isn't alot for her to upgrade in any aspects . she has property that is paid for that has a barn and an old store on the site both are still standing structures , the store being built in the 30's is still solid , she had it as a resale shop prior to my brothers death and has not opened it since then , she's a giving lady and will help anyone in need especially myself and my 4 children , I am divorced mother of 4 children ages 6-14 its a constant struggle for myself as well ... My mom made the statement she wish she had the funds to remodel the store into a home for herself and my family as well so we didn't have to struggle also , it hurts her to not being able to help me with anything. We have one vehicle a 1992 Ford van that is actually ready for the junk yard so we are unable to go anywhere unless we ask someone to take us .. There are 6 people living with $650 income a month and $23 food stamps a month that isnt alot if u think about it .. The heating and cooling there is none because we cannot financially afford to do either one during the seasons , she deserves this to be able to have a better home and comfort after all she's done for myself and children and what she's been thru over the years , I'd love nothing more than to see her smile when she actually has a home she's proud of ... Currently my children sleep on the floor at her house I sleep on the couch .. Any donations or assistance would be a blessing beyond my dreams to give my mom happiness before she passes away ... Thank you and god bless
