Reveal Family Home
Organized by: Jasmine Smith
My mom took over this house when her parents and brother passed away. My grandparents raised 8 children here and struggled every day. My grandpa worked as a security officer and my grandma had to stay home with my three uncles who were diagnosed with MR at early ages. With my grandpa being the only one working for a family of 10, it was very hard for him to keep up with everything needed on his own. When my uncle died and most of their other kids moved out, my grandparents decided to to move somewhere smaller. A couple years later my grandma died from heart failure, leaving my grandpa alone and giving my mother this house. My mom by then had had 4 children and was raising us alone. She took the house. Not too long after that my grandpa died, and my mother now had lost both of her parents. My grandparents left a few thousand dollars owed to taxes on our house and has tried to maintain that, her house bills, her 4 children, etc. all on her own. It caught up with her. The other day she got a notice to pay $ 2,550 by the end of May or else we would lose our home. My mother tries her hardest to not ask for help and do it on her own, but she was talking to me and said that she cannot meet the deadline by herself. I have to to everything I can to help her and my little brothers and 2 year old sister. I really need some help so my mom won't have to lose the one thing she has left.
