Husband was shot

Post by SoyB » Sat Mar 09, 2019 11:36 pm

Help with rent and utilities. I and my husband are not able to work because we were in a shooting incident on July 29, 2018. My husband and I was shot he got injured and I didn't. He was not able to return to work because he is not able to do for his self.
I now have to care for him and I haven't been able to work do to the shooting. My husband was working at the casino and they laid him off because he couldn't come to work. I had to miss work to take care of my husband. We have 3 kids to take care of. We were victims of a shooting. Please help if possible we don't get any government assistance as food stamps or anything we are a hard working family until the night of the shooting.

Hello,
 I am coming to you out of complete desperation.  My "unfortunate events" or circumstances and what happened to my family destroyed us.
My circumstances are what your organization covers however my situation is quite different meaning more in-depth and I did not find any help until now. Please still consider me I am in emergency need for help!  
My husband was shot and killed in front of me in my apartment after calling for an ambulance to have him baker acted in June 15, 2014 on Father’s Day morning.  The cop came up the stairs and unloaded his gun into my husband’s right side and back from 21 feet away. He didn't stand a chance the bullets went straight through both lungs, his heart, liver and many more important organs.  He died in my arms within seconds   my life was destroyed along with my children's.
 I did end up finding employment in August 2014 and by October 2014 I got my license fixed and finally in November 2014 I was able to finance a car.
When my husband was killed I had just broken my ankle almost a month before he passed so I ended up taking off the temporary cast off and start walking when I shouldn't have been, now my ankle is forever messed up.  In September of 2015 I suffered a heart attack and found out I'm Diabetic my sugar as so high I should have been in a coma instead I had a heart attack. Mind you I am UNINSURED. In Oct., Nov., & Dec I suffered more hospital stays because of chest pains, double pneumonia and diabetes.  So far so good this year thanks to GOD.
Then my eldest son came home in December of 2015 to help out because when it happened I didn't have a job because I took care of my husband he had RSD which is a nerve disorder that leaves you in constant pain, and had GERD which was in remission.  So since I was still living in the apartment/hotel that my husband was killed in my son was going to try to help me and his younger brother move because I had tried for a year and a half to get help and couldn't find anyway.  Well this Feb. 16, 2016 my son Austin (the oldest) passed away again in that apartment/hotel in-front of my son and I.  I did CPR and everything I could do to save him however nothing worked... They pronounced him deceased at the hospital.  The apartment/hotel decided that since my son passed they were going to evict me.  Of course I had no money because I forgot to mention the job that my let me go in December 2015 because of my hospital stays, I did receive unemployment for a little while.
  I did find a house could not get any assistance anywhere to help me, we moved here in the middle of June I must say since I completely depleted myself sold anything and everything of value let some important bills not get paid and begged and borrowed the rest. I have left myself in a bind now I'm a little too far to get caught up.  I am actively looking for a Job I'm going to Christian Help they help you look for employment and give you interview lessons and they gave me a referral to dress for success for an interview appropriate outfit.
I still can’t find anyone to help me get my car payment which is behind,  car insurance and utilities- electric , water , cable/internet, phone bill, & household necessities caught up which are overdue.  Even if I had one month’s rent paid it would help so much.
I do receive survivor’s benefits after my husband was killed for my son and me so I do have some type of income coming in its just not enough because of being behind all the deposits and increase of rent killed me.
Both myself and my son and the boy I took in need new clothes I can’t even afford to go buy my son underwear right now, however I can’t even do that.  I would love to be able to take my son to Walmart and say pick out 10 outfits, 2 packs of socks, 2 packs of tank tops and 3 packs of underwear. Also take him to shoe carnival and be able to get him new shoes while they have the sales buy one get one half off.... his shoes talk as he says...lol
Right after my son Austin passed my other son best friend mom  passed as well so I continued to care for him I couldn't let him be 18 and homeless after just losing his mother.  I had been taking care of him for about a year while his mom was trying to work on her problems and get better so she could provide for them.  I am trying so hard to do the best that I can I just feel it’s not good enough, I feel like a complete failure, I don't like to ask for help but I'm in no other position other than to.
Thank you for listening to me and reading my story about my husband being shot and killed. I hope I didn't take up much of your time.  Please consider my family for your program I have NO where else to turn and we could become homeless and car less pretty soon and I DO NOT want to lose my only son that I have left, he is my life and it would destroy me.
God Bless You. Thank
