I lost my privilege to drive, which makes it even harder to look and obtain a job to make this any easier on us.  See More


All this started about 6 months ago, the apartment flooded with all kinds of human waste, due to faulty plumbing. The landlord took almost a day to come see the place. My mom is having to replace more than half her wardrobe, and had to pay out of pocket for cleaning cost. Enduring all that caused her to get extremely ill for a month or so, leading to her being laid-off from her job. We got into extreme debt (i.e. rent and bills). Trying to get help we allowed a friend who said he would help with finances, which did the complete opposite. He took advantage of my mom and had her pay for all his stuff as well. At about that time is when I, myself lost my job so obviously I couldn't help much any longer. About a month later our beloved cat of 20 years fell extremely ill and passed away, having to borrow money for burial costs. Literally a few days later we got an eviction notice. Needless to say our year has been excessively stressful. My mom has ALWAYS done anything and everything in her power to help me, now I want to be able to help her. Thank you for reading -Jake
