Please help us get our sister and neice into a home by December 5th!!
On October 12th 2019 our family had the sudden and unexpected loss of our Mother. Exactly a year later this October 12th of 2020 we lost our Father.
Our sister Kailisa is an LPN and had been primary care nurse for Dad (who was living with a traumatic brain injury) for 12 years without asking an income from them, and for mom (a diabetic) for the last 3 years, while helping her daughter through school the whole time. My parents could never have afforded a full time nurse and my sister stepped in to make sure they were cared for.
We are reaching out for help now as my Mothers social security and father's disability just barely kept a roof over their head as well as my dad's medical paid for. After my dad's death the rental company is now evicting my sister and neice and they must be out by December 5th 2020.
My sister and neice and I have been working since October to get them any state help they can get, however because my sister was not on any lease, was not evicted due to covid-19 income loss, and has been working for my parents without payment, she doesn't qualify for any housing assistance.
My niece just graduated high school in 2020 and is currently working, and my sister is looking for work but even with them both working getting them into a new place by December 5th is going to take some help from our community.
We estimate we need to raise 6,000.00 to provide first and last months rent, plus deposits and connecting fees for any utilities and internet so my sister can continue to look for work, and so that they don't have to surrender the 5year old Dutch shepherd family dog who is extremely bonded to them and we are pretty sure he wouldn't survive a re-homing after losing my mom and dad in a year.
I was unemployed due to covid-19 layoffs in April and only just returned to work this month and all of our family has sent every bit they could when dad died just a year after mom. Please share, we genuinely appreciate every single little bit and it really will help!
