This will be used to replace items stolen from my home, and to repair damage done to my home from 3 burglaries. I have adopted 7 kids over the years. My now 19 year old adopted kid has, since leaving a year ago, burglarized my home three separate times. He has taken a 46" HD Smart TV, a 32" HD TV, two firearms, All of my medicine (twice) for a failed back surgery, heart condition and atrial fibrillation condition. Much damage has been done to the house. I have to contract the work out, as I am not capable of doing it myself. There were many, many other things taken, such as electronics, tools and heirlooms/keepsakes. I am not asking for replacement of ALL items. I am asking for assistance in not depleting my funds in total, and to have a head start on keeping above water. Such assistance will help to continue to be able to provide adequately for my last adopted son, age 17.
Most recently, on November 8th, due to a change in a contractor for the VA with whom I had a p/t job, the new contractor terminated my job, which has left me in a precarious financial condition. I had depended upon this p/t work for supplemental income for my retirement and have now had to apply for some state benefits to allow me to take care of my last kid until he graduates from HS in May, 2018. I need some assistance to weather this temporary storm, and have depleted my savings and am appealing to classmates for some help. Thank you all so much. Scott
