Welcome to Build-n-Share. #BNS 164 The Hawthorne Project XV
After too long, another email from the Hawthorne Project has arrived in your inbox. You open it up to find out what your fifteenth project for the organization will entail, and your heartstrings are immediately tugged by the plight of the Daniels family. You are inspired to do all you can to help Roger, Regina and their 4 children. Teenage Rocky’s efforts to help his family by getting a job are laudable ,but he should be free to be a boy, hanging out with friends, focusing on school and looking forward to prom, not his next paycheck. The idea of a baby and two toddlers without a home as summer nears its end is distressing, and you are eager to get to work.Roger Daniels, his wife Regina, his son from a previous marriage named Rocky, his twin toddlers Johnny and Parker, and the new baby Alyssa have had a desperate run of bad luck since just before the pandemic started. First, Roger, who worked in construction, suffered a worksite accident that left him permanently lame with a bad back. He has filed to try and get disability, but the paperwork has not yet gone through. Not long after the pandemic, Regina lost her bar keeping job at the local pub due to a lockdown of non-essential work. The lockdown went on so long, the owners lost so much money that they had to permanently close the bar. Regina has been applying for any job opening she can find, but so far she has not been hired. And her unemployment ran out long ago.
The family are currently living in a tiny cabin behind their church thanks to an understanding congregation. It is not a permanent solution for the growing family. Luckily, 17 year old Rocky has a part-time job at the local hamburger joint. He has been working all the hours he can get to help the entire family get necessities and food. The family also have turned to food pantries, but they have to go to multiple pantries to get enough for the whole family to eat every day. To make up for the electricity and water the family uses, Regina does some cleaning in the church during the week and runs the daycare during church services.
Roger has become desperate and applied for public housing, but he was told the waiting list is several years long. He has become depressed since he can no longer support his family. He spends his time watching the small children and playing horseshoes. The young ones are mainly cranky in this uncertain environment.
While Regina was cleaning the church office and waiting to do a job search on the computer, a new volunteer told her about the Hawthorn Project. As soon as the computer was free, she emailed her application in, crossing her fingers for luck. She is well aware that if something does not change soon, the family could be pulled apart. And then she worked on applying for more jobs in the hopes that something good will happen on that front too!
