Hello. I am a widow and disabled US veteran; I live in a small town where there is little opportunity for work unless you have a personal vehicle. I have tried for years in a fruitless effort to obtain employment only to be repeatedly turned down because I have no way to work nights or weekends for lack transportation. Due to severe food allergies public transportation by city bus is not an option for me and the buses are unreliable as they do not run past 8pm nor on Sundays and most holidays all times which an employer usually require you to be able to get to the job.
Currently I live in almost uninhabitable conditions with an apartment overrun by a constant invasion of florid flies which management is doing nothing about and I cannot stop this because the neighbors next door, according to the maintenance man of these apartments. I was told the problem is coming from over their place; and neither they nor management have made no effort to correct this. My family go to sleep each night and wake up each morning with these insect every single day even though I have spent well over three hundred dollars trying to take care of the pestilences (my son and I managed to stop the ant and spider invasion) all of these insects were coming in through multiple huge big holes of the old windows the maintenance men here recently put in . About three or four months ago the tenants who lived above us flooded their apartment which resulted in flooding of our apartment below them.
Now our bathroom has a four foot hole in the wall near the bathtub and five other large holes in the bathroom ceiling and floor board all of which they’ve done nothing about in spite of our repeated request for repairs so needless to say showers are out. We have to clean up using a sink.
Meal preparation and eating has been like eating outdoors indoors with this constant fly invasion, Florid flies live off of rotting wood, the maintenance checked and it isn’t coming from anywhere in our apartment. I keep a very clean place and always have. At this point, I don’t even feel like I have a home. I never fail to pay rent or any bills yet get no better service than this. So we need to move but it will take money and a job to do this. I am desperate and at my wits end.
I really need a car so both my son, who has also not been able to get employment here no matter what he has tried, so he and I can both get work and move away from this unbearable situation. He wants to return to school in the future, but even that won’t be possible without transportation here. Your help will be greatly appreciated , as I do not want my family to eventually end up homeless for lack of transportation and a chance to work. We live too far to walk to any jobs available which are usually way over in other towns.
Thanks for your consideration and any help you may deem fit to give us.
