User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeWe are beyond words. I am so grateful of your donations. It has been a hard year and even harder few months. I can't believe this is actually happening. It makes my heart full. My husband and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We can't express enough how grateful we are for this. It really means the world to us. This really takes a weight off our back. Our stress level just got a little easier. This helps so much with our mortgage. We love our house and was so afraid of losing it. We have been in this house for years and it means so much to us. You really made our end of the year a little brighter. What you did for us is the best gift anyone can give. I wish I could repay each and every one of you. I am so thankful for you and my family thanks you too.

My Husband is Disabled & We're Going to Lose Our Home Before He Gets His Social Security!

My Story:

My husband and I have worked our whole lives to raise our children as best we can. They've both become wonderful adults, and we're so incredibly proud of them. We always enjoy spending whatever free time we get with them, their girlfriends, and our two dogs. Our dogs are really important to us, and they're both always there to comfort us through difficult times.

I work for the state of Pennsylvania, and I work at the local county assistance office. I love my job, and I love the sense of purpose that it gives me, but most importantly, I love helping others in our community who are less fortunate than me. My husband has been out of work for a few years now due to disability, and we're still fighting to try to get him social security disability benefits. He has a court date coming up to try to get his disability benefits approved, and we're hoping that goes well because we're really struggling right now. Last year, I lost my job to Covid-19 and that put a strain on everything. I've been able to get back to work, and we've recovered slowly but surely; however, we're still behind on our mortgage payments and need help.

We've been behind on our mortgage payments for a while, and I'm worried that our home could fall into forbearance if we can't afford to catch up soon. It could take months for my husband's social security to be approved, if it's approved at all. By then, we'll have run out of time and could lose our home. We worked hard to buy our home, and we're on the verge of retirement, so losing our home now would be a huge blow to us. For that reason, we would be so relieved and thankful to receive this generous assistance. I promise to do my best to pay this forward when we're back on our feet again.
