Ron and Carlo Eviction Emergency

$5,120 of $8,000 goal

Raised by 39 people in 2 months
This campaign is to help my dad and me raise the funds to cover the first, last and security deposit for an apartment lease, along with money to hire movers since my father is 73 and I'm disabled.  The rest of the amount is meant as a buffer for any unexpected expenses that  come up, including the possibility that we'll need to stay in a cheap motel while we look for a new place to live and maintain the treatment plan for my disease.

Update: Stay Extended Until April 16th! 

March 11, 2019... Last week my father was able to file for a temporary stay on the March 8th eviction date.  He's returning to court tomorrow morning in Taunton, where we hope he'll have the chance to speak to a judge about the hardships we've faced during this process and our reasons for needing more time.  My father seems optimistic as ever that the judge won't just throw us out in the cold.  I can only hope that he's right.

Latest Update, March 12...Some good news!  My father was able to get in front of a judge and negotiate for us to stay in the house until April 16th, but we'll have to pay a month's rent to the new homeowners (which we're actually fine with).  

Thanks to the news article by Rick Foster and the Sun Chronicle publishing our story on the front-page (link below), we've received more donations and passed the half-way mark for our goal amount of $8,000.  We want to thank everyone who has helped us.  Your donations, kind messages of support and well wishes have helped to raise our spirits and relieve the stress from this ordeal.    That means so much to us, so we are very grateful to you all.  We hope you'll continue to show your support by checking back and helping us get our story out.

Sidenote: We are not the only family--particularly where one member is acting as a personal caregiver--to have applied for public housing with little hope for a timely placement.  We won't be the last.  You can help other people in similar situations by getting to know and involved with the organizations on the ground like the Massachusetts Chapter of the National Association of Housing & Redevelopment Officials who "are calling for an increase in state support for the more than 160,000 Massachusetts residents on a waiting list for affordable, safe and decent housing."--Attleboro area authorities back request for $72M...,The Sun Chronicle, Published March 10, 2019.  We need to push for housing stability as a basic right in this country especially since studies show that it's more cost-effective than leaving people homeless.
