Help save my Home

I've had MS for almost 20 years and just recently my daughter (caretaker) had open heart bypass surgery. We've lived here for those twenty years and need major repairs to maintain our home just to meet my insurance underwriter's demands to continue coverage and still meet my mortgagor's needs for their lending requirements. Just to obtain an appraisal will require  new roofing. We have no other funds available and I'm dependent on disability income just to pay everyday expenses. A carport roof and side entrance way will have to be torn down and replaced so the roofing will be on a slant to meet the underwriter's demands. They will not cover any flat roofing (a feature in some 50's southerwestern housing) and they have also excluded my gabled roofing because of the minimal flat roofing on my property. If my funding exceeds those needs, the additional monies are to be used for handicapped accessibility features (larger doorways, ramps, bathroom aids, etc.) I hope to have the roofing done by April 2019 (six months from now) and continue to reside here for the remainder of my life.
