A Moorhead Family is Close to Saving their Home from Foreclosure

Posted: Updated:

A single mom riddled with stacks of bills all while trying to raise seven children has a possibly troubled road ahead. Their home is in foreclosure and by early January they may have to find a new place to live. Valley News team's Eric Crest shares one mom's story about how her family is so close to saving their house through the help of strangers.

After two car accidents and rehab ever since, and a husband that is out of the equation, Tammie Yak and her seven children are making a go of the holiday the best they can.

"I did as best we could. My savings ran out and by July we couldn't pay our mortgage any longer," says Tammie Yak of Moorhead.

Today Yak's home is in foreclosure. She can only work 15 hours a week by doctor's orders. But any mom knows, the job of a mom, never stops.

"I think they understand the gravity of losing our home and that we couldn't go anywhere," says Yak.

What's really amazing though is a child's ability to understand what's happening, despite their age. It show's just how intuitive a child can be.

"I had one of the little ones, they get money for birthdays. I've had them bring me money. Say here mommy just take this it will be ok," says Yak.

But today thanks to the countless efforts of others from right here in the f-m. Tammie and her family might be able to stay.

"They are probably struggling just as hard as we are and yet they found a way to give something," says Yak.

Nearly five thousand dollars have been raised through the generosity of others this year towards the Yaks. All to keep the Yak family in Moorhead. The very place they've called home for the past ten years. But the giving, it didn't stop there.

"It's just been amazing! We have stuff under our tree that we probably wouldn't have," says Yak explaining how others have gone so far as to give them presents so the kids, will have something to open on Christmas morning.

They're not in the clear yet though. If they don't come up with 800 dollars within two weeks their home will be sold by the bank.

"We need to catch up and once we catch up, if I can continue to pay the mortgage that's great. But if they can modify it and make it so it's affordable so I don't have to rely on child support. That's even better," explains Yak.

What's even better than wishing that all of this goes through in the nick of time is the lasting impression one family has been imprinted with on the account of a community, that keeps on giving.

"I would love to tell them thank you from the very bottom of our hearts. Thank you so much for all you've done for our family," says Yak.
