Disability Grant For Single Mom To Help Autistic And CP Disabled Children
by Leona Hassell
(New York, NY, USA)
I am a single parent. I will not give my age. I am raising two disabled children.
I have no family and my children's father died and left us nothing. He was an idiot who left me for a junkie. But I was really in love with him.
I never knew my parents. I have no idea of my history or background. I just know I am here living in this evil world.
I have no faith and I do have mixed feelings about if there is a God. I am so confused about the way of the world.
I have been hurt and lied to all of my life. I am a former battered woman but it is okay because it made me stronger and wiser.
I have been homeless and hungry with a disabled child.
I am not disabled but my two children are.
My first child who is female has cerebral palsy. She is in a wheelchair and she is mentally challenged and nonverbal.
My second child has autism and is developmentally delayed. He can walk.
I am unemployed and I receive food stamps.
I am unable to work due to the fact that both of my children are disabled. They need my full attention.
I tried to borrow money from my friends but they have their own money problems.
I did try and seek online employment but they want money.
I have no money. That is why I am applying for a free grant.
I am seeking a free grant so I can buy a washing machine because I am constantly going to the laundromat and it is costly.
I need extra money for food and other household items.
This would help reduce some of the stress I am under.
