I have a dream! My dream, for many years, has been to own a modest home. I don’t need big and expensive. I need a place to live, comfortably, without worrying about when I have to move again. I am currently living in a 765 square foot apartment. It has two bedrooms and one bathroom. It has a kitchen with about 6 feet of counter space. I pay about 1/3 of my monthly income to live here. Apartment rent is going up, rapidly. Most apartments in this area are now renting for more than $900 a month. I do not qualify for any of those, since that is above my income cutoff. Yes, apartments do require a certain income level. They do not allow a person to rent if the rent will be more than 1/3 of their take-home income.
I am now 68 years old, and a veteran who served in the United States Air Force for twenty years. I do not qualify for most low income things, since I make about $100 too much money. I do not need much, but would like to be able to buy a house for $150,000 to $200,000. I will live in Kingman, Arizona, the area is suitable for me with my medical conditions.
I do enjoy time with my children and grand-children, when I get to visit them. I like to bake cookies, something that I can not do in this apartment. The kitchen and counter space simply does not allow it. I don’t even have room to set up a portable table. If I had my own home, I could bake and cook on those days I feel good.
I have multiple sclerosis, diagnosed twenty-one years ago. Multiple sclerosis is incurable. I am tired all the time, and experience severe nerve pain much of the time. I also have arthritis, having grown up in Michigan. I am at a stage that the doctors will monitor me, but can do nothing for me. I do not have the ability to work, because of the fatigue and memory issues caused by the disease. On the days my legs work, I try to walk. Walking could help me to keep my legs working a few more years.
Can you give me a dollar or two? Every dollar helps, the money will go towards my dream! I would be extremely grateful for your help. Let me say thank you, now!
