The Problem: My friend and his family have fallen under hard times. His dad fell ill a while ago, and has been in the hospital ever since. Between hospital bills and other necessities, they’ve fallen behind on their rent. Yesterday, he and his mother got evicted from their home by their landlord….
if there is anything you can contribute send it his way. He and his family are very deserving of your care and support. Please reblog and spread the word.
“The Reason (and where the money will go):
They’ve spoken to a lawyer and it’s being suspected that this is all because of rent control. All his neighbors have had their prices hiked. If the landlord evicts my friend’s family, he can then increase the rent for every new tenant.
They need to raise this money in order to pay the landlord for this and next month, in order to still have have access to their belongings and have a place to stay. In the meantime they will be applying for section 8 housing, and then they’ll look for somewhere else to live (most likely out of state).
However, they can only move once his dad is out of the hospital. Since there’s no way of figuring out when this will be, they’re looking jobs to hold down the rent and hospital bills until then. My friend’s dad has barely been in a conscious state of mind these past months, so naturally, he hasn’t been informed about their current housing/rent issue, for fear it would kill him.”
So many friends I never expected have been helping. Times are still rough and things are still up in the air but thank you for all of you that have helped and been by my side. You don’t know how much your words have meant to me.
