Plumbing Assistance for a Low Income Homeowner

I am a senior and disabled. I live in a trailer and all my pipes have frozen up. I need all new pipes and someone to put them in. I have called different places, but have found no one to help. I have no money. Do you know someone to help? I have been looking for another place to live, but no luck with it.

In my town it is hard to find help for folks in trailers, but don't let that stop you from asking!

I am so sorry to hear of your troubles. I have a few suggestions...which are:

1. Do you belong to a religious organization (church, synagogue, mosque etc.)? Some have discretionary funds that are used to help parishioners in need. It is all very private and no one needs to know.

2. Since you have a computer and are posting here, have you considered setting up a Go Fund Me or like crowd sourcing pages?

They are fairly easy to do, you tell your story and ask for help. I know from first hand experience they work if you work to get the message out there.

3. Do you have a community college in your town that offers plumbing classes? If so, call there and see if they offer a program where the students to the work if you pay the materials. Just be sure to understand exactly how it works and if you have any recourse if they do a bad job...they are students and it probably won't be perfect...although ideally it could be.

4. If you have a health condition...like if you have MS, or asthma, or a heart condition...contact the national organization for your situation and see if they can offer help.

Since you say you are a senior, For seniors, I know there is an Area Agency on Aging in my state that helps people... I have no personal experience with this, but read not long ago about how this worked for someone.

Good luck with your search! I will send up positive thoughts that you find a good solution!

Call social services, HUD.org, local churches, and your local news station. The station may want to do a human interest story and many people can help you once they see the story
