My grandma got this house for hopes we would have a stable home for my siblings and  me. My grandma has made sure we always had somewhere to stay. At one point in my life, we almost had to stay in a shelter, I was ten or eleven, I can't remember. Then when I was fourteen she got us out of living in motel rooms, we lived there for several months, and she got us out. Then we moved from there to stay with our dad in hopes of financial stability. But my dad and step-mom have a rocky relationship with my grandma. My brother and dad fought, my brother left to be with our mom. Then my dad and step-mom left, my dad left with saying little to his mom-- my paternal grandma, with extensive water damage that led to mold. A vent has been closed for a long time and I only found out about it recently. My mom moved into the house, but she did not have the resources to fix things either, then only a few weeks ago she and my sister still left us with no way of repairing the house, no easy way to fix things...
I make very little money, and I am trying to cover my own bills, and I don't have anything to spare to try and cover an ounce of repairs. My grandma's home owner's insurance doesn't cover the estimated $18,000-$25,000 worth of damage repairs. My parents left us with this huge amount of damage that seems impossible to repair on our own. We have had cleaning people come look at the damage of this nearly abandoned house, and I don't want my grandma to lose her investment, an investment of seven years for hopes me and my siblings could have a better life. My grandma invested in this house with high hopes that my dad would do better for us, then later that my mom could... All said and done seven years later, mistakes made, arguments that happened, we have been left behind with this all.
I was only 14, and I have never known what to do, I was focused on my school work, now I am 22 trying to get a stable job with a good income. I thought it would be okay, that my dad or mom would fix things... but it turned manipulative and neglectful. It hurts so much, I don't know how I keep trying, but I want to look forward to my own life, eventually being independent.
The pain of neglect and abandonment weighs heavily on me, my brother, and my grandma. I feel nearlyhopeless, to be honest.  I have talked with my brother about his mental health, while my own feels strained. We need help.
I want to use this money to not put a strain on my grandma, who is still working to make sure we do not go homeless.  I want to give my grandma a chance to not lose anything else from this sad situation, to have a chance of her own life outside of this house.  My brother and I want the pains of severe neglect far behind us. We were all taken advantage of in this situation, and this is the only way I can think of to try and help...
All of the money raised will go towards repairs: water damage, fixed floors, drywall patching, repainting, fixing cupboards, ventilation, mechanical garage door repairs, gutters that have never been cleaned, damaged chimney,  and general repairs that may come up with further inspection.
I seriously mean that when I say I truly appreciate any and all help that will be given to me. I cannot rest well at night with the thought of these expenses and that I will do as much as I can with my own abilities (re-painting or basic assembly of things for repairs). That my brother won't have to worry about feeling desolate, that there will be less of a strain on my grandma who works even with having a cane. I don't want all of this to have been for nothing. Years of fighting and anger from my parents with each other and with my grandma... I want to have a clean, fresh start. My grandma didn't work this hard all her life to have it thrown in her face. We need help, we need peace of mind.
I am hoping to raise as much as I can for my grandma.  I hope to raise as much as I can within two months or less. We all deserve so much more, and all the help you can give us, can help us move forward from this hurt. Anything you can give to help, thank you from the bottom of my heart!
