My house has extensive mold & mildew damage due to leaky roof. Have contacted every local and state organization for help, to no avail. Cannot afford to make repairs to roof and cannot expose my family to such dangerous conditions. Have 2 young kids and my husband suffers from Sarcoidosis. H/O insurance will only cover cost of paint and will only pay max $260. Forced to stay with relatives. Looking for contractor or any organization to help.
