Family Lost Everything to BlackMold


21078812_1497099103.8037_funddescriptionUrgent Emergency Homeless Situation!!!
My family recently moved less than 10 days ago. We found a ranch style house that is accessible for my father's wheelchair and in the same school district for my younger brother and I. We hadn't even gotten settled in before we were forced out of the home due to a Black Mold infestation. As of right now we are forced to be in a temporarily homeless situation until we eventually scrambled around the other night and are now staying in a hotel using up all of our resources. The mold infestation discovered was determined to be Black Mold and became airborne. We are unable to go back into the home and all things in the home are unretrievable. The landlord reality company and owners of the house do not plan on reimbursing us for our damages and losses at this time. Although we have renter's insurance and it apparently does cover mold, our insurance company is trying to deny us by finding any loophole possible. In the immediate emergency, we are in dire straits in need of any financial assistance that anyone can donate.

My father is disabled and uses a wheel chair. We are hoping to be able to find another accessible ranch style home to move into ASAP in the area. However, we do not have our deposit, First month rent or all of our moving expences paid back at this time from the landlord & homeowner. Not having these funds available has put us in a nightmarish situation. Black mold being airborne has compromised our furniture, clothing, all of our other belongings and health. My step mother had an allergic reaction and had to seek medical attention. She is sick and currently out of work for several days. Finances, Furniture, Clothing, Food, etc, are of immediate need. My younger brother and I are student athletes that play high school basketball. We are both honor students that work hard in the classroom & train hard for basketball. We have lost reading books and other education tools. We have also lost all of our basketball training equipment in the home. By no means are we looking for handouts, but we are in true need.

My father is a generous leader in the community.  He often donates money, clothing, food and other items to anyone in need.  Even with a spinal injury that put him in a wheel chair and living with severe pain, he has volunteered to better the community when his body allows. Although in a wheelchair, he has volunteer coached youth basketball teams with nothing in return. He never expects anything in return or complains and feels that it has been Gods plan for him to help others. I know he doesn't expect anything in return now either. However our family is in serious need and anything you have to offer is much appreciated.

Thank You!
