Two months ago I started a new job as a nanny on a ranch. Part of the “nanny package” was a four bedroom house on 5 acres a couple miles down the road from the ranch. They offered to have my husband, my self, and our 4 kids move into this house and live there, free of charge with utilities covered for the duration of the time I worked for them. Before we made the call to move we expressed to the ranch owners that if we were to make this move and for some reason things didn’t work out we would be out a home for our kids and that was our biggest reservation. They reassured us that we wouldn’t have to worry about not having a place to live even if things didn’t work out, so we went for it. Two weeks after we took residence in this place, the ranch owner and my husband got into a disagreement about lifestyle choices and he kicked my husband and kids off the ranch, and moved me from the house included in my employment to a one room studio cabin 100 yards from their house. Leading up to this move, we did notice that they were trying to keep me busy late into the night, and it seemed like they were slowly trying to separate me from my family. My husband is a disabled vet who gets disability, and based on the fact we dropped everything to move onto their property, we agreed that I needed to continue working for them until I could find something else because we needed the income. About a week after moving into the new cabin, and working 18 hour days, and going a week without seeing my family, I got a phone call from my boss one night about 10 o’clock asking me to come to their house for an “employee meeting.” Upon arrival I was greeted by my boss, a fifth of crown down, and he drunkenly informed me that one of the ranch hands popped dirty on a drug test and he “needed my help teaching him a lesson.” He loaded me and the ranch hand up in his truck and drive us to his cabin where he stationed me by the front door to “supervise” and he led the ranch hand throughout his house, instructing him to take everything he owned outside and to place it on the lawn. Once his cabin was empty, boss man put all of his clothes in a pile, and proceeded to light everything else ranch hand owned on fire. I packed up my stuff that night and left before they woke up the following morning.
I had a job interview lined up last Saturday for a bartending position. Last Friday night my husband and I were in a car accident at 12:13am in which we rolled our car 6 times totaling it, and fractured my arm..needless to say I had to cancel my interview as I’m no good tending bar with a broken arm. I have my next follow up appointment with the orthopedic surgeon on Monday, but after leaving a job I don’t qualify for financial help, and with 4 kids things are very tight until I can go back to work. My husband is picking up side gigs when he can, and I have found a job I can do for the time being until my arm is healed, however I won’t get my first check until the 21st. We found a small place to move into that will be available in two weeks but we need help with the deposit. Right now we are living in a motor home in my father in law’s driveway until the house opens up. I’m asking for $1,000 to help us with the deposit, and to help with some groceries to get us through until I get my first check.
I’d love to follow up with photos of my children, the car after the accident, my arm in a cast, whatever details I can find to paint the picture of what happened.
If this happens to be seen I appreciate your time, and any help that follows.
