Rehabbing My Home - Emergency

Donation protected

My name is Blair Williams. I live in Chicago and I am in desperate need of help. I am calling on every and anybody that can assist. I have experienced a flood in my basement due to a pipe that collapsed in my main water line. I am without water to shower, cook, or use the restroom in my home that I purchased in 2021. My insurance is refusing to cover anything due to how the water got into the house.

The water has destroyed half of my business and 2/3 of my home, I have sewage in my ceilings, walls, and floors, and sewage in my floors on my main level.

Water is still coming in my home from the city and plumbers have informed me that the only way they can assist me is if I have 9500-10k for digging and fixing the line and an additional 5k to get the sewage out of my home. Either way, if I don't do anything, my house will continue to be inhabitable and flood. This has to be done asap.

I don't know what to do. I am a first-time homeowner and I have never experienced anything like this. At this point, I have lost everything I have worked so hard for and my business, I own Soul Language Scents,

If you can help with a donation I would appreciate it so much. Thank you.

UPDATE: I am in a hotel with my cat and a lot of belongings. I will be escalating this situation with the Illinois Department of Insurance. My Insurance company has been "evaluating", being rude, and sending me on a goose chase for days. They are bringing my spirit down and have been extending my hotel stays for 2-4 days at a time; Literally, every other day they tell me to check out or get on the phone for hours and hope they extend my stay, as though I don't have a job. I am exhausted.
