We need to replace the roof on our house.
When I bought my house in 2005 I was working in real estate, then I met my husband who was in commercial construction. I am unable to work because of a couple of health issues, my husband is 60 years old and cannot find a job at all. A year after we married, both industries tanked. Three years ago our roof started leaking and it needed then to be replaced. We still can't afford a time payment. Two years ago one of my children passed away unexpectedly and we are raising her daughter. Our combined income pays the mortgage, the utilities and leaves me with 200 to 300 per month to feed the 3 of us, my husband, my granddaughter and myself.

There are no resources for rehabilitating houses in the community we live in and a time payment of any kind would bury us. The roof leaks in several places, the back room has mold and the roof in the back room is not stable at all. We are not insurable, the lender carries the insurance on the structure, and the contents of the house can't be insured because of the roof. There are some other issues with the home, for example the heating system is at least 50 years old. There is a program which will update our heating system, but only if the roof is replaced.

We can't move, we can't continue living like this and we need help.
