It’s been a year since a bathroom leak drove Willie out of her Orlando home she’s lived in for nearly 50 years.
Water poured out of a tank inside a bathroom and flooded Willie’s home. The flooding led to mold growth and a cracked ceiling from moisture. The mold destroyed Willie’s clothes and furniture.
She moved in with her sister before ending up in a hospital for three months. Willie had her toe amputated.
“I think when I stepped in the (flood) water, I think (bacteria in the water) infected my toe,” she said.
It’s taken a year to get her home slowly repaired and habitable again.
Willie said her sister’s neighbor told her to seek help from The Mustard Seed for home furnishings and clothing.
“I’m so glad you’re here to help,” Willie said. “It’s been a really hard time.”
