Disability Grant To Help Vietnam And Gulf War US Army Vet John With Accessible Home Repairs
by John Renaud
My name is John Renaud. I'm married with two sons that are married with families of their own.
I'm a 63-year-old veteran of the Vietnam and Gulf Wars. I retired honorably after 22 years in the US Army. I live in Killeen, Texas.
I've been dealing with stress, insomnia, depression and anxiety. The depression developed as a young man growing up.
Even today I am taking medications for my health. I am housebound. I am making all my appointments and abiding by the doctor's guidance.Financial Hardship
I am presently low budget with help from Social Security Disability and Military Retirement but not enough for repairs and upgrades needed for my home and property.
My utility bills are high. My home is at present unsafe for trips and falls. I'm not able to pay for air-conditioning repairs.
The Old Homestead Badly In Need Of Repairs
I am unemployable, but I'm searching online for work that I am able and qualified to for. I've applied for work-at-home jobs.
I've called Veterans Administration and a handful of organizations asking for help.
I recently have been posting on Craig's List and eBay to sell my collectibles.Specific Needs
I am seeking help for home improvement. I need to widen doors and install handrails in the shower and toilet.
I need a wheelchair accessible ramp built so I can enter and exit my home safely.
I need to make home repairs inside, outside and under my home. I need to replace insulation and sidings, repair the air conditioning and fix up the heating vents.
I have to cut and remove trees destroying my fence and I have to remove the old mobile home.
