My bathroom has a leak and now the floor is so weak it is about to fall in. Also, I have black mold. If anyone knows of a program that could help me fix this. I am a single mom with two small kids. Please no smart aleck comments. I am really looking for help here. I don't have the money to fix it and don't know where to turn for help. Thank you in advance.

I own, well I am buying. I have already called the Scioto County Commissioners and they won't help me because it's the bathroom. And the CHIP program doesn't have any funds in our area right now and they don't do bathrooms either. My little boys room is right next to the bathroom and he has asthma. I really need to get the black mold taken care of right away.

Christ Community Church has had a program to help people with yard cleanup. I don't know if they can help you, but it might be worth a phone call to the church to ask. the number should be in the phone book.

The bathtub and I think the pipes under the floor, because the foor is weak and the black mold is in the closet next to the bathroom. Also, the laundry room floor sounds like water is under the floor.

You can go to Community Action & get on a list for repairs. I'm not sure what all they do. I know they replaced my fathers hot water tank, put in a new furnace & insulated the house. So try giving them a call.

you could also try the welfar system and if you keep getting turned down i believe one of the news channels coulp probaly help rally support from the sound of it it is bad. I know that channel six from columbus used to help ppl get real help when the community says there is nothing they can do...also most ppl are afraid but child services will also help with stuff that are a danger in the home they r not only there to take kids away but help real parents keep a healthy living enviroment they have also been known to help ppl get jobs...just some ideas hope they r usful

I called children services, they won't help me fix the problem but they will gladly get involved if someone wants to report me. Wow, here I am trying everything I can to take care of my kids and get this problem fixed and this is the way the system is set up. I guess if I wasn't trying to better myself by being a home owner I would be better off.

Are you employed? If you are not on any type of government assistance I work for a company that helps people who are working but struggling and need help with a "project" such as you describe. They do a background search and require some verification of need.

Mt next step would be to turn to news services then letting them know the joke of a system the child services in the area are they are supposed to help ppl when in need.
