secure our nest

Please, help my family secure our nest.

We have been through so many changes the past several years -  separation & divorce, my Dad moving in with us two summers ago (he has dementia), my brother Pat moving in with us this past January (he has autism and mental disabilities due to brain damage from being a preemie - has been living in a group home for the past 12 years, where I discovered he had been abused), and recalibrating to a different definition of family life. 

Here we are, still in the process of healing ourselves and our home.  I am pushing through the very last phases of a divorce Refi, to get the house into my name, despite being under constant threat of losing our home of seven years to my ex-husband.  Since two of my children have been significantly impacted by this situation, they attend a small private school where their emotional needs are met.  The school has given us the best possible financial package they can, and yet I am unable to make the payments at this time.  

I am carrying the household entirely on my own, and I am struggling to keep up.  My dad and brother receive benefit money, which barely pays for their expenses.  As I work for myself, and am the primary caregiver, I have relied on the generosity of friends helping to care for my family, either by bartering, or by paying them way below the standard cost of home help. 

Your generosity will help to fund:

• care for my 89-yo father and 33-yo brother

• school tuition for Adobe & Diin

• renovation of our home to create a safe, adequate space for my family of 6, plus a live-in caregiver, which is needed now as my father's age progresses

• safety net in the event of emergencies

Thank you so much for your time, consideration, and generous donations.  Every little bit helps!

Artis Moon, Adobe, Phoenix, Diin, Grandpa Tom, and Uncle Pat
