My name is Yesenia Santiago, I'm someone who worked for 33 years outside my home country, before in 2016 made the decision to return for good. I bought a small property with my savings in a brand new neighborhood. Unfortunately, right from the start, the neighbors I got in my immediate surroundings turned out to be non grata, to say the least. For 21 months after moving, all sort of offenses were tolerated from them. At some point during this time, had to call the police for them to stop, but that just worsen everything. One day in June 2018, again, for no reason, they were vandalizing my home by throwing stones, garbage or any else they could find. I went to find out why they were doing this?, and because I questioned them, and in defense of my home, I was attacked with a golf club by the couple living in front of my house. To make a long story short, I ended up with broken ribs, hit in the head with some consequences, and some damage in the left ear among other injuries. Afterwards, I was disabled for more than a year, but was able to stay at home during this long recovery. Even though, there were restrictions orders from a court, they would still continued vandalizing, threatening, against me or anyone coming to my home. In October 2018 I had to resource to moving to a distant place with the help of family. At the same time the property was put up for sale.
After the long recovery, in late 2019 and beginning of 2020, I felt ready enough to start to look for a job. But then the pandemic came... I had no job, the house not sold yet.
Again, to make another long story short, finally in March 2021, there was a trial against the two people who attacked me. Only the person who hit me with the golf club was tried and sentenced, however because she had no previous delinquency history and so forth, they lowered the sentenced to the point that she is in home arrest. The man she lives with, was let go. They claimed that because he did not physically harmed me with any object nor used his fists, that he could not be tried. (even when he enable the attack by creating a distraction with his fists about to hit my face, so she could hit me with the golf club)
So, both the attackers are back in their house in front of my house. Under this circumstances, every time it's needed, I still have go to the property to give it maintenance or cleaning. There are new restrictions orders against them, yet I still considered that I'm at risk or anyone who goes to the property with me. These people do not obey the laws. Have no shame for themselves nor remorse.
This is why I'm here in Gogetfunding. If I could get donations to amount the home value, so I could replicate to donate this property to anyone who can qualifies. Financially speaking, I can't donate it without recovering the financial means originally spent.
