My ceilings have fallen in due to ice pack and a roof leak. There is black mold.

I also have black mold in addition to the roof leak and caved in ceilings. There are two rooms involved. Furniture and rugs were covered in all the insulation and mold. I am disabled and live on less than $900 monthly. Is there help for home repair?

So sorry Cat, sounds like a tough situation. I know roof repairs can be expensive.

There are programs which could help you with your home repair, especially as it sounds like there could definitely be health risks involved. If you have any home insurance be sure to try that first. Also check with local churches --- some of them have groups who do free repairs for seniors as part of their ministry in the community. To find more formal programs, check out this good review of both government and private groups offering support to those whose homes are in need of repair.
