I am 61 years okd and have Multiple Sclerosis.  My home was built in 1899 and needs a lot of repair.  Just had a tree fall on my house and refined 2 trucks I had.  Didnt have Hone Insurance or insurance on one of the trucks.  About a month later, started up my 1990 Jaguar and the engine caught on fire.  I didn't have any insurance in that.  Have major plumbing issues in house and some electrical problems.  I am female and live alone, and having the Multiple Sclerosis, I have fallen many times.  I think for my own safety I need to have these repairs done.  I would totally appreciate any help I would receive for these many problems I have with this house.  Last week my Lawnmower caught on fire and just hoping it can be repair.

i receive $1000 a month from my Daughter for Mortgage on her house.  I am also in Debt to my Doctor for over 20,000, that is now in Collection.  Owe some money on a few credit card bills.

Need help tearing out carpeting and laying down laminate or re-doing hardwood floors.

Sheri that is quite a list of problems. Hard to know where to start but certainly you should check out the website This government site provides information about federal, state and local services and programs specifically for those with disabilities and their families. They also help you identify resources in your local area.

As you have a wide variety of issues I'd also recommend that you complete the rather extensive quiz on the government website about benefits as it will identify all the different government programs you may qualify for. Check out a review of and how to use it.

Regarding the repairs you need you can get some good ideas and tips to get help in this article about Grants for Home Repairs.
