Property Tax Help for Disabled Father & Son

$805 of $3,600 goal

Raised by 14 people in 3 months
My father and I both live together and are both disabled -- I'm Bipolar I and have had psychotic breaks for which I've been hospitalized, and my father has had a heart attack, a bad fall and broken hip, has an implantable defibrillator, is incontinent with a permanent catheter, and spends much of his time in a wheelchair.  He's 75 and I'm 43. Neither of us are able to work. The government recognizes us both as legally disabled. In 2017, we lost my mother to a sudden stroke and as a result we lost a lot of money; her social security plus a monthly gift she had been left by her godmother to help her (and us) get by. After we lost my mom (she died on my birthday, of all days), we were unable afford to pay our property taxes from then until now (and we were already behind on them at that point). Now we're being threatened by the town and we're afraid of losing the house, which is a modest one-floor affair, but which is all we have. We owe a total of $28,000 in back taxes on the house. We reached a deal to pay $300 a month in the back property taxes with town tax officials. However, we simply can't afford to lose that $300 per month; we're barely making ends meet as it is. We live as frugally as possible. We are both on government assistance but it does not provide very much. I'm looking to raise $3600, which would be a year's worth of property taxes. If we could do that, we could pay the taxes, avoid losing the house, which we're very much afraid of, and still be able to (just) make ends meet. The funds we receive will *only* be used for the purpose of paying property taxes, nothing else. It would be great if we could hit a mark of $300 the first month and then keep it going for a year. I cannot tell you how grateful my father and I would be for your help; I'm an only child and I feel terrible that I cannot provide for my father in his old age due to my disability -- but you have to play the cards you're dealt in life. Every single dollar you give will, again, go directly to pay our property taxes of $300 per month. I can only hope that we have some success on here because our luck has been bad for quite a while now and I've run out of places to turn. Anything you could give us would be so, so, so very appreciated and would ease our worries about losing our home. Thank you for your time and consideration just in reading this. My goal is a year's worth of a property taxes, which would be a total of $3,600, but it would be really great if, as I said, we could somehow bring in $300 per month, so we could stay current with our finances. Again, we live VERY frugally. We do not eat out, we spend almost zero money on entertainment, and we keep holidays as simple as possible. God bless each and every one of you who contribute, and once more, thank you just for reading this and listening to our plea. I want to thank everyone *ahead* of time for any help we receive. I have to believe there are good people out there who will help us get through this. To make matters worse, we're *just* recovering from having our well failing and having to connect to town water, the cost of which entirely drained everything we had in savings. Bless you for your help; I promise to personally thank everyone who contributes. And thank you just for reading this.
