Default Saturn Vue Rust repair

Looking for someone in Pennsylvania who can help me repair the rot near the subframe mounts. I bought the car as my first car and donít have a lot of money left and definitely payed to much to just junk it. All Iím asking in another year or two out of it so I can get a steady paying job and hopefully move out soon.
Please someone help me repair this rot so I can continue to drive this car

It's a big long shot trying to find someone on here, you would be better off contacting a bunch of mechanics on craigslist, and see who can do it for the least money. Over the years I've used multiple craigslist mechanics with great results. The one guy charged a flat rate of $30/hour.
On craigslist you want to select automotive services, then do a search for welder or welding.
You could probably check facebook marketplace, too.

Try any place that sells trailers. They always know a bunch of welders.

I just went through this myself. Called dozens of welders and body shops, nobody would touch it due to liability. Thought I was hosed and would be scrapping a Vue with only 70k on the clock.Finally found a shop willing to do it, but they wouldn't just fabricate something. Got a whole new donor front unibody sub frame section, zinc coated it, and welded it in. It's better than new and roll never rust out again. Cost me $1,800 and he had my wife's Vue for 2.5 weeks.

Your best bet is either going to be finding a friend able to weld in some square tubing, or do it yourself. Not what you want to hear I'm sure, but there's almost certainly not going to be an affordable or easy solution here. The previous owner of mine had boxed them in with 3 plates welded in but it worked terribly and was not safe.
