roof

 
What's your take? (click here)

bobaloo11  

I am a disabled 54yr old man with a couple serious health issues. (85% of my stomach removed due to tumors, moderate to severe liver disease [N.A.S.H] and clinical depression). I live off social security disability. I am in need of some home repairs, my front door no longer opens (fire hazard) and the boards on my porch are rotten to the point that my roof is sagging because the base of the pillar that holds the corner of the roof has rotted. I hate to ask for help, but I could use some, I lack the knowledge or the man power to repair it. I have a couple credit cards but they're max'd out @$2000. (I could use some help with this also.)
Any help, be it materials, a couple of handy men or a few bucks would be helpful. I'm afraid the Township will notice my house and condemn it, if this happens, I'll be homeless and and that would be horrible since I'll have nowhere to go and it will probably only cost a few hundred $$ and a couple of strong backs to fix it up. Bless you for reading this, and please help.

Our leaky roof

I am an educated disabled individual, over the years I have hurt my back and other various parts of my body working. Currently, I live with my 78 year old disabled father and 3 adults children. My older daughter have 2 minor children and is on welfare-to work program. My middle daughter is on unemployment and struggling to finish college. My son just got hurt in a car accident. We really need our roof fixed. We had this house in the family for almost 40 years. My mom died 8 years ago. The roof has a lot of water damage. We are afraid every time it rains. It has been raining a lot lately. We can not afford to fix it.

I am a single mom of 4 kids, 3 are special needs kids.  It takes a lot out of me to take care of them.  I am always needing some work done on the house I am renting.  The roof is leaking now, AGAIN.  I am behind on my bills already bad enough, and just don't have the money to fix it, permanently or temporarily.  Anyone got any ideas on how to get some help?

A Family in need

I have a friend, who could really use a lot of help. I help them all I can But I am talking major help. My friends husband is about 9 and had a massive stroke. They live in a small house that is very run down and really in need of a roof and some major plumbing. Her daughter lives there and has 2 kids and her husband is in jail. Her daughter works in a at a small store and gas station, does not really make much money and she has been helping them out. They have not received their benefits from SSI or the VA yet. My friend can not work because the stroke of her husband was massive and he is now blind in one eye and has loss of some memory and doctors say he is not to be left a lone. This house is really the only thing they have and it is small but really run down, If anyone knows of some place that could help them please let me know. all info is greatly appreciated.
