Disabled and evicted from home after 31 years

Robert Semmons, a kind neighbor and dear friend of the neighborhood was evicted on February 24th, 2021 from his home of 31 years in Santa Rosa, California. Robert, most commonly known as Bob is disabled making his circumstance very difficult in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite numerous efforts of negotiation with his landlord whom has decided to sell the property, Bob was forced to vacate with nowhere else to go. He plans on staying in several motels with what he receives from his Supplemental Security Income Benefits as he can no longer afford the cost of living in Sonoma County with the rise in rental costs. Bob’s ultimate goal is to acquire enough money to leave the state and settle in Arizona where he hopes to find cheaper housing costs in order to sustain himself. Bob was always an amazing neighbor, from keeping an eye on the neighborhood while everyone was at work from the range of his front patio to feeding the neighborhood strays, Bob was a neighbor anyone could enjoy. We hate to see him go but we hope to send him off rightfully so with an amount of funds that will allow him to remain on his feet and get to Arizona with any accommodations he may need. Thank you for your time and we appreciate your donations and shares. God bless. 

Bob is a native of Van Nuys, CA where he graduated from Van Nuys High School Class of 1976 eventually settling down and becoming a long term resident of Santa Rosa, CA
