They say when family members die, it brings out the worst in in people. I have always been about family. Unfortunately, after my great aunt passed some relatives didn't want me to live in her home anymore, even though I had cared for her for some time and was in her home with my young child. My great aunt's home was paid for along with additional homes and land. The story takes a turn when the cousin starts to stalk me, which lead to him assaulting me, and harassing me. I called the police (other family intervened; e.g. his sisters), I went and got a restraining order. From there things escalated so fast and everything erupted into pure chaos. The cousin I had the restraining order against fought me tooth and nail to get the restraining order dropped. He did not like the face that someone was telling him he couldn't have access to me. In retaliation, he had me and my daughter evicted from the home, where we were living for years. We had 6 days to vacate. He harassed me so much that my co-workers no longer felt safe, I was terminated from my government job. He has been relentless. I just want a fresh start away from the relatives that were once family and protect myself and my daughter. I just received two job offers both with airlines, but I need a home and to be closer to my job. Earlier when I looked I had $1.44 in my account. I have reached out to 211/United Way and numerous other resources for help to no avail.
