Veteran Family of 6 Need your help please
Whats wrong with our Government?
Hello My Fiancee and I are here to write our story we both will be writing so bare with us when reading. My fiancee is 50 and a 101st Army Airborne Veteran. Im proud as can be. He has fought for this Home we all call America not once but twice. We can seem to understand how no one can help us fight for our home. We rent a home at 625.00 a month here in Tampa. We have 4 Kids 16 year old Girl that my fiancee has had custody since she was 6 here mother hasnt seen her since. I have a 13 & 6 year old girls from First marriage who my husband adores and they adore him hes a great Daddy. Then we together have a Little Boy Cole hes 2 years old and a handful. We both lost our jobs and have been struggling since. Taking Odd jobs just to pay the over due balances on our utilities to save from being cut off. Barely making the cut off dates. Were three months behind in rent soon 4 on the 1st. We have pawned sold everything we can to keep us afloat. Unfortuantly we know sooner more than later our land lords will give us a notice. I have to be real they have bills also. I have applies for the only 3 county Rental & utilities assistance programs available in the county to be denied three times. Tampa Bay Crisis Center, Lee Davis Service Center and Metropolotan Ministies. Basically two of them only pay one months rent only if your one month behind its only to "Stabalize" I wish I was only a month behind. Also how is that a Crisis? I'm in a Crisis so they wouldnt even pay one month I left in tears. The other place said well our funds are limited so unless your Homeless we cant help you. I'm trying to prevent from being homeless i have 4 kids. The only thing we were able to recieve was HEAP They paid our outstanding Electric bill of 560.00 which was on termination notice already. Im so dissapointed and all these places ask are you a Veteran. Why ask? I should be able to recieve benifits there should be a program just for this.
To top all this off The IRS who OWE ME MY SONS TAX RETURN have given me the run around since March! I called the tax advocate people for help. I think its all just to stall. Someone used my sons Social from That tax office no one else has it he wa snot even 2 at the time. Ive had to prove he lived in my home for over six month that im his father IM AMAZED!!! How much more proof do they want! I depended on that money to help us through. I told them of the hardship this has cause us they dont CARE. They called me yesterday to have the Nerve to tell me oh no they want proof your daughter lived there for over 6 month WHAT?!?! WHY?!?! Her identity wasnt stoled i got my child tax credit for her already. I cant beleive this no its more like there going to say oh it was my daughter instead so they dont have to pay me the INTREST they have to give you.
I dont know what to think now with the Government now all of a sudden since Obama care me & my wife were knocked off Medicaid and were sent a notice that we have share of cost 166.00 for her and 345.00 for me a month. I called the case worked and said theres no way we can do that it obvious look at our income. She said sorry but we include child support as incomel. WOW so unless we have to make a ER Visit which will be over our share of cost no Medical here.
For those of you wondering why were asking for 3,000 our rent is 625.00 were backed up 3 months 1,875 on the first it will be 2,500 I doubt were gonna hit a lottery between then or I land a job that is going to pay me that amount in two week. The other 500.00 will go to water 328.36 what ever is left which will be around 170.00 will go towards our December electric bill so well be at zero since the Lee Davis Service center covered us for past due notice. Were not asking for OVER our amount if the fundraiser does go over that just a blessing, but were not asking for that just to not worry at night. If the next morning there's a notice.
If anyone is willing to help please and thank you from our hard we dont know what else to do. Christmas is around the corner. Its the worst feeling in the world to have your 16 & 13 year old come to you and say Mom & Dad we dont want any gifts this year give them all to Sophia (6yrs) Cole (2yrs) they dont understand how were struggling we do. That broke my wife to tears. I pray that doesn't that doesnt happen .
I have proof of all denial letters and proof or our past due notices and if anyone need proof how backed up we are in rent I can provide that too. I'm tired of people that take advantage of the system get everything handed to them year after year. Now that I need it only for this year I cant get ANY help. Thank you for listening and sorry for venting.
P.S This fund has to receive a Min of 100.00 for it to go Public please tell your friend Thank you.
