All Roofing Contractors Suck

I can't seem to find a roofer who is interested in working on my house, but there is water pouring through my kitchen ceiling!

I have a section of roof, approx 26 x 6, over my kitchen that needs to be repaired. Water pours through here in buckets whenever it rains. However, despite now having called some 27 roofers I can't seem to get anyone to come and fix it.
I've left lots of messages on answering machines, but they've never called me back. Several have told me "we don't do jobs that small, we'll only replace your whole roof". One actually told me "We never work on old houses." I've tried calling places that friends told me about, places who advertise in our local free weekly, places from the Yellow Pages - you name it. This situation is getting desperate, and its not a job that we can do ourselves.
How do I get a roofer to come and work on my house?
