House Rehab

Organized by: Bob Wheeler

I am raising money to fix my house. I am a retired US Army veteran who has run out of luck and resources. I have been unemployed for several months due to health reasons. I suffer from severe chronic depression, anxiety, PTSD and Type II diabetes. When I bought my house I was working in the IT industry making enough money to keep the house in shape. Then the post 2001 IT collapse happened and I lost my job. I went back to college and earned a BS and Masters but that didn't bring me a better job, just more debts. Because of my health it has been hard to find and keep a job that pays as well as my old job. As a matter of fact, I have been forced to work at jobs paying just a couple dollars more than the minimum wage. As a results our debts have gone up and the house has suffered from poor upkeep. I tried to file bankruptcy but that is not exactly working out and it won't put new siding on my house or replace the windows that are so deteriorated that they are warped and cold air comes in between the upper and lower panes. My deck is falling apart in places and I have a sliding glass door that will not open.

It pains me to ask for your help but I don't know what else to do. I have no credit and no home improvement skills or the money to buy the materials. All I can do is put this out there and ask for help. I am trying to raise $30000 dollars for new siding, the windows, doors and other necessary repairs.

If you contribute you will always be a part of my life in no small way!
