Help a Family Stay in Their Home

In 2015 Rob and Angela Way moved from Alaska to Virginia into a beautiful home with 5 of their 7 children. One biological, and 4 that they adopted in Alaska. In January of 2017 they learned that one of their children had been sexually assaulted for several months. The family was devastated and began trying to deal with what had happened. The beautiful home they loved was now filled with so many horrible memories that they had to leave it. They were able to find a house to rent in Lynchburg and began the healing process. The kids had made friends in the neighborhood and everyone was starting to settle in. Unbeknownst to them, the house they were renting was being foreclosed and the owned never told them. The rent they were paying wasn’t being paid on the mortgage. In order to be there for his family Rob has been working part-time using FMLA. This allows him to be available for his family but doesn’t come with any pay so they quickly fell behind financially. Two weeks ago, the bank foreclosed on the house they're living in and they’ve been given 60 days to get out or buy it themselves. They cannot afford another move right now and their kids are suffering and need stability. They’ve found financing but will need to raise $10,000 for a down payment and closing costs.
