Help Save Our Foundation

From Courtney Schroeder

We are raising money to help fix the foundation on our home. This is the last thing we wanted to do was to ask for help personally but we have run out of options.

Hello all and thank you for making it this far. We are asking for the help of others in our community to fix the foundation on our home. We are a loving family of 4 with many fur babies. Long story short the foundation of our home has cracked and is crumbling as we speak. With the flooding in our area so high right now it has taken a toll on many homes including ours. We live in the flood plain, that means there is so much water around our home that our foundation is 7 feet deep into the flood zone. When we bought our home we spent a lot of money to fix the basement so we wouldn't get water down there. That company has come back 4 times to assess the damage. No one seems to be able to keep up with the flooding. Recently our foundation cracked under the pressure and 1 corner in our basement has shifted in, and away from the support beams. Meaning that wall could cave at any moment. We were quoted $2900 by American Waterworks to fix the wall and put 4 more wall anchors in to hold that wall up. Unfortunately we do not have that sort of money by next Friday. We are hoping to raise these funds by sharing with our family and friends the trouble we are in. We never wanted to ask for financial help to do so, but we have no choice. We have contacted the city for the Flood Plain Relief Grant but we are too deep into the flood plain to get that grant to lift our house up far enough to get out of the flood plain. If this problem doesn't get fixed our house could soon become unlivable leaving us 4 and our beloved pets with no where to go. Anything helps and we would be forever in your debt. With all the issues we are keeping our spirits high and hoping with the love and support of family and friends we can make this happen.
