Emergency Move for Our Little Cabin
Organized by: Brenda Miles
My daughter and her family of four plus cat & dog are being told they have to move from our family land right away. If my Mother were not sick with Alzheimer's I do not believe she would allow this to happen, it's her land. However, my brother who has assumed Guardianship of her and her land has told us that if my daughter does not quit her full time job and move into my Mom's house (where my Mom does not want her by the way) that my brother will make her move off of the family property.
Eviction proceedings have not legally started yet this time around. Last year he did this 2 weeks before Thanksgiving. Now, just so everyone knows my brother is not working, and has stated that he plans to continue to not work so there is no reason he could not care for his mother, along with the rest of the family. We have all been taking turns so far, each of us helps out. We all live on the farm, me (I am disabled), my brother, his girlfriend who is disabled, and my brother's son and his girlfriend who are also not working right now. That means there are 3 adults living here who are not disabled that are not working. There is no reason we could not all continue to take turns and care for my mother. Except my brother insists that Helen my daughter must quit her full time career at a great company in order to do this. His suggestions have been that she just let their little cabin that they have worked so hard on just go back to the loan company and she should file for welfare. My daughter is purchasing a tiny cabin and if they work hard and make the payments it will be paid off in 3 years. But that's not good enough... apparently. Helen and her husband are doing most of the work themselves on the cabin, and think they can get it ready to live in full time and ready to move to the land they are purchasing for about 4000 dollars. They are very careful to make every penny count and have been trying to do this on their own, but he works for a local food factory and it shuts down for maintenance and repair frequently, and he does not have seniority even after almost 2 years there so he is sent home sometimes if there is not enough work to go around. This results in prolonging the time to get them moved, they just don't have the money.
My grandchildren are frequently present when my brother threatens to evict my daughter and them and they are scared and don't understand. Please help this family. We don't know what else to do but to ask for help in this time of need. I don't want to see my daughter and her children evicted with no where to go right before winter.
