Help my brother Greg keep his home



Please help my brother, Greg, keep his home. After years of chronic pain, he finally has access to medical care (thanks Oregon!) and is starting to get back on track, but now he's about to be evicted. Greg gave up his job to help our parents (in the photos), and since then he’s only been able to get temporary jobs. He passed the CNA course this year and has applied for lots of jobs, and both of us are selling as much of our stuff as we can, but that's not going to bring in money soon enough to pay the back rent so he can keep his apartment. His landlord has been really patient, but understandably he wants a tenant who can pay the rent. I live in England and immigration laws mean that Greg can't come live with me and work here. I'm helping him as much as I can (trying to sell my car right now), but I feel pretty helpless being so far away. It's just the two of us - our parents have passed - and he has all of the family momentos with him. If he ends up without anywhere to live, he won’t just lose his home but all of our memories of Mom and Dad. Neither of us like asking for help, but without some help he will soon be homeless. If anyone can contribute – even a little bit – you will be helping a good person get back on his feet. As another person on this site said, the hardest part in all of this has been watching his optimistic spirit break, and I would love to show him that people care and that there’s still hope.

Thank you for reading this, and maybe helping!
