Disabled Single Mother With Autistic Son Seeks Government Housing Grant
by Kathy Ekdahl
(Centennial, CO, USA)
I am disabled with a rare medical condition, Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome.
I have a 13-year-old son who was recently diagnosed with autism and mood disorder.
My youngest daughter is 11 with the same medical condition as I have. She may be having her first back surgery to correct scoliosis in her lumbar spine.
My husband left me 3 years ago and sold everything. He pretty much dumped me on my 80-year-old father's house.
I currently share this house with my older brother and oldest daughter (both are unemployed).
I have been supporting the household with the help of my father for 3 years now.
It is imperative that I find a house of our own. My older brother is verbally abusive and is a tremendous stress to my son.
I am unable to fix up his room to make it a safe place for him should he tantrum and my youngest daughter and I share a bedroom.
I need help to remodel this home to make it more accommodating or buy a home in the same neighborhood that I am currently in.
My income is only $699 a month. I don't own a car and barely make it month to month.
When my father passes this house will be sold and my two children and I will be homeless.
Any and all help will be most appreciated. Bless you. Kathy Ekdahl.
