Clean Healthy Home For Claude
Organized by: Melissa Archiquette
Hello my name is Melissa and I am creating this page for my 68 year old Father . His name is Claude and he is a Tribal member, Elder,Proud Vietnam Veteran, my Best Friend and only living Parent . Late last September I found out that my Dad didn't have any heat in his house, the boiler was leaking water, almost every window in his house is cracked and broke and His stove didn't work . I was able to get him he'll from our Tribe and they did out in a new heater and stopped the leak in the basement . But by that time the walls and carpeting in the basement were soaked and molding . It is now give months later ... The walls have BLACK MOLD 4 FEET HIGH which now needs to be cut out and replaced along with the studs in the walls that are rotted through . The carpeting through out the whole house has to be ripped out and replaced . The WINDOWS are still cracked and broken, there is CARBON GHOSTING ON EVERY WALL IN the house . The stove is still broken, the black MOLD got in to the water line to the fridge so there went the fridge and all of his food that he did have . And he has been in this for 5 MONTHS! Our Tribe is no longer willing to help my Father but this is a matter of his LIFE or DEATH so I am now asking for help ! I am not sure how much money this is all going to cost but I do know that just for one room in the basement is estimated at 40,000 ! My Father is retired due to a serious motorcycle accident a few years back which left him with a broken back,neck,shattered ankle, busted out his teeth, closed brain injury, and he actually DIED twice ! He is living off of his pention ( which my Mother took half of in the divorce ) and his Social security . He can not afford to fix this himself and I can NOT AFFORD to lose him ! Everything helps . God Bless and Thank You in advance .
