Save my home
Organized by: libby shinkle
I am a bit embarrassed to do this but don't know where else to turn. I have devoted my life to raising a family, caring for others children and to helping those in need in any way I can. I have found myself to be the one needing help now. We are your average American family living weeks to week and keeping the bills paid. Unfortunately I got hurt in November at work doing my job as I did everyday. When I reported it it supervisor I was told they would not pay me workman's comp. I was put off work and had to go to physical therapy and have to start pain management soon. My pain has been unbearable and I have even been hospitalized, unfortunately in my line of work there is no health insurance offered so I had none to cover medical bills. My spouse's income covers our utilities and gas for the cat so he can work My 17 daughter even got a job to help out and I had to apply for food stamps to feed my family. I fear we will be losing our home in the next few months if something doesn't come through for me. I had to retain an attorney to try and get what I deserve from the company but we dont have a court date til June and I tried to get unemployment but my employer lied and said I quit. I'm not sure what will happen but it would be sad to lose the only home my family has known. If you read my story thank you for your time.
