In 2006, my wife and I were in a motor vehicle accident. I suffered from a broken back, neck injuries, traumatic brain injury and major depression disorder.
My wife suffers from low back pain, depression and nerve damage that affects lower extremities. We are both on Social Security Disability.Financial Hardship
We both have bank accounts that are overdrawn from securing our first home. We also only have enough money for house payments and utilities.
We have a single vehicle that is in need of repairs. Our combined medicinal needs exceed our abilities to afford them.
We have an outstanding account balance with our pharmacy that makes us choose which medicines we can afford each month.Income Efforts
We have applied for food stamps, and extra help with our medications but do not qualify due to income guidelines.
We currently go to food banks in our area, and have to rely on friends to try to get through the month.Specific Needs
I am looking for grants to fix and modify our home to our disabilities.
We also need help obtaining medications, and getting ourselves back to financial stability.
