Save my Parent's Home
Organized by: Tara Nixon
Hi everybody. I appreciate you taking the time to read my story. All my life my parents have worked so hard to give us everything we need however I never remember a time when we were not struggling. My father was working three jobs to stay afloat over 80 hours a week, and still was not able to save a penny. we do not live a lavish life whatsoever, he just can't find work that pays enough to afford the bills. he was diagnosed with diabetes a couple years ago and his numbers are out of control because of how much he works. My mother only got a car this year because none of my three siblings or I could drive her to work anymore with our work schedules as well. All four of us still live at home. I am the oldest at 26 and feel like I can't even move out on my own because I need to help support my parents. the stress this is causing me makes me ill everyday because unfortunately my father was fired from his main income job due to downsizing. He has not been able to pay the mortgage in a couple months and I don't have enough money to support my student loans and other bills as well as his mortgage payment. I am fearful that we are going to be foreclosed on shortly. my father is trying to start his own business or find a new job so that we can gain more income but in the mean time I am desperate to find a way to pay what we are late on for the mortgage before we are all kicked out of the home I have grown up in. If we lose this house we will not be able to afford to live anywhere else, I have asked my father what we will do and all he can say is that he doesn't know and I can see the look of failure in his eyes. I am on my last resort begging to a break to help him stay afloat a little longer and know I have a roof over my head for winter. Any dollar helps. I promise to give back to as many organizations as I can once my family is stable again to share in the kindness this world has to offer. Thank you so much to everyone. Please help my parents keep their home. we have no family and no other options of a place to go.
