Finding Bathroom Repair Help for Disabled Homeowner?

I'm disabled and I need help with my bathroom floor and tub. The floor is about to fall through and I would love to find someone to help me fix it. I have a special needs grandson who also stays with me and his mom. I want to have this done so he don't get hurt. Is there anyone that helps with this situation?

I would try to go to HUD in your area and ask for help. There are also a few government loans that you can get online that could help you out. If you happen to be a member of a church talk with your pastor and see if they can help out by announcing this during Sunday service. Maybe there are some members in your Church who can donate some free material and some time to help you.

You do not say but it sounds like you might live in a mobile home and if this is true government agencies will almost never help with repairs.

You are talking about some very expensive repairs that will require licensed workers, county/city permits (just permits may be several hundred dollars and will require inspections and this means the complete bathroom will have to be brought up to code), new fixtures - tub, commode and vanity, all new floor and possibly wall repairs. They may even have to redo sub flooring.

I'm only mentioning this so you can understand that you will have to do a lot of looking for help and answering lots of questions.

I would suggest you try to get help from your local Habitat organization - and if this is mobile home they may still help you.

If your grandson is going to a special school then you might try asking them for some recommendations.

I'm not sure of your age but if you're a senior - well don't worry because age may not matter because of disability. Check your local office on aging first. In PA. we have a 211 number to reach a group that can refer you to groups that can help you with whatever problems you have.

The 211 number is nationwide so if you are in the US you'll go to your local place for your state. I just tried calling it and it was easy! Good luck!

If you have zero leads, then you can google something like "low income home repairs help + (your city)" and see what comes up

YOu say your grandson has a disability; you could research if that disability has a specific nationwide charity and appeal there. For instance, if he has cerebral palsy, you could inquire with Cerebral Palsy Foundation www.yourcpf.org/. Same with Autism, Down's, etc.

A third option is to consult churches in your area. Any non-profit, really. Many offer such community programs
