Helping a friend of a friend

Journal Entry: Wed Sep 17, 2014, 4:20 PM

Hotaru-Thodt 's friend cfryant is in a lot of trouble and needs some help. I always worry about being on the street, so there is a lot of sympathy from me. I just thought I'd get the word out

Our family has been struggling for quite some time and we're now on the brink of being homeless. I was laid off from my position (I've been a web designer and developer for over 16 years) We lost almost everything in an eviction - we were literally a hundred dollars away from keeping our place when the bank removed 900 dollars from our bank account without warning for an old account I wasn't even aware of. I tried speaking with them in person and was told very rudely that they could do nothing.

The banker in question (I believe her name was Jan, Bank of America in Phoenix, AZ) saw that I was about to cry right in front of her when I realized the implications of what she was telling me. She said crying wasn't going to help anything and glared at me until I asked her to give me a number of someone I could speak with directly. She rolled her eyes and wrote down a number which turned out to be wrong and thrust it into my hand.

We have run out of options. We're in temporary housing and are about to be evicted again. Despite my fiancé being physically disabled, she has been making sure our daughter Evelyn gets her physical therapy and occupational therapy, all of her doctor's appointments, treatments, etc. This itself has been a full time job. The only way she's been able to make it is with our dying money pit of a car - this car died last night. We had no money to tow it.

We're now stuck with no money, no one to help us, no car, and no place to go. In addition to all this I've just developed a tooth infection that has spread and has become extremely painful and potentially dangerous.

We've been trying so hard to stay afloat and hold on to each other but it's been so hard. It's taken so much out of us, the constant fear, the doubts - there have been so many sleepless nights and it seems like it's only ever getting worse. Every time we take care of something it seems like a new problem crops up. My birthday is coming up in two days and all I could wish for would be to not have to worry where we're going to sleep for the next few weeks. Please, even if you can't help directly, I would really appreciate you sharing this to spread the word. We're good people, we've just fallen on hard times and could really use a hand up. Thank you and god bless.

I'm the guy in the blue shirt on the left and I'm at the Alberta Wild Rose Party Stampede Stomp with Official Opposition Leader Danielle Smith. It was a real pleasure to meet and I hope she one day becomes Premier of Alberta
