Save Ms. Anita's Home
Please keep the donations coming! There is still a lot we can do to get Miss Anita in a more stable and safe living situation. We got the water and electricity back on, but still need to pay her gas bill so that can be turned back on. She has a gas range and needs it for cooking. Numerous repairs are needed on her house that is falling apart such as: a broken kitchen faucet and a broken window. She needs more help getting her financial affairs in order as well as an in home caregiver.
She's an elderly woman all alone with no family in an old house and I don't want to see her fall beneath the cracks. Her memory and her mind is starting to play tricks on her and her knees are stiff, but other than that she's a fiercely independent woman! She was helping me in my garden the other day and grabbed the grubbing hoe from me and said, "let me do that, it'll get done faster!"
We still have a lot to do to get her in a sustainable and healthy living situation. I got her water turned on today and I'll use some of the extra funds to help pay off some of her $1,300 electric bill balance on Monday. She is still in need of: electricity, gas, a conservator to help manage her finances (I've been doing this for the past few weeks and it's a full time job), and a home caregiver to check on her and take her to the doctor. She will also need more money to fix the state of her house, to pay pay her monthly bills, mortgage, garden supplies, and the care of her animals. Please continue to help with donations and spread the word. You can also contact me if you want to volunteer your time or find out what else you can do to help Miss Anita.
Very very sad! Good news though if she just forgot to pay the bills then the money is still In her account? Call adult protective services they should be able to help
My heart goes out to this poor lady. My question though is what is gonna stop her from getting back into debt once this is paid?? She needs long term care!! Someone needs to step in and get her help. She needs someone to manage her money and her appointments and everything.. I will share to get the word out and I hope and pray that somebody not only helps her financially but with future support with managing her money and paying her bills..
