Disillusionment Disabled Widow Proposes Creative Grants And Benefits Solution
by Ms. J. Rowland
(Cumming, GA, USA)
I found this site by desperately typing out "what government dept do I get in touch with to aid a disabled person with housing."
I am a 54-year-old widow on disability. Recently my home in Georgia was struck by a tree, severely damaging the roof and flooding the entire contents.
I have been staying in a hotel ever since and quite frankly the cost is just about to consume every dime I have.
BUT EVEN WORSE now as many other times in my life I am once again faced with the endless and frustrating task of finding the right venues to get help.
I'm not going to bore everyone with all the details of my disabilities, which are both physical and mental, except to say that MUCH of my disability stems from a constant beating and severe negligence.
Unfortunately it is from our "help" resources. I have seen and heard more incoherent help mumbo jumbo than I could ever believe.
For all you out there you know exactly what I mean. There is absolutely no resource for help that is clear, precise and immediate to be found as far as the eye can see.
I for one have been knocked down so many times by our "help" departments till one day I couldn't get up anymore.
It lasted about eight months because I had been stricken with disillusionment. That is something that will take your heart, your soul and your mind.
Yep. It leaves you pretty helpless, because hopelessness can be the worst of all afflictions.
Anyhow I guess I have dreamed many times of getting to talk with our President and what I would say on the behalf of the American people.
If there is any hope for us to survive, we desperately need easy and CLEAR access to our resources. Every resource should clearly state exactly what it can and cannot do and even direct you to the correct venue according to your individual needs.
My vision is for our President to appoint a team of persons to write and revise all needed resources, making it so simple a two year old could follow its directions.
Also it should be ordered that every state and county should do the same. Then these publications should be made available to each and every household by mail.
No more searching everywhere ordering pamphlets from here or there waiting days for them to arrive just to receive the wrong info, or worded where you can't make heads or tails of it to begin with.
Lets face it, to run an efficient and productive country you need quick and efficient answers thus boosting the moral and spirits of all.
And hey, wouldn't it also help out with the economy if we didn't have to put out so many dollars for health and homeless issues?
HOW? If everyone had easy and CLEAR access to their resources, much of this could be avoided.
I wasn't born disabled. In fact I had a nursing degree, taught pre-school, had a strong faith in God and country and was quite the social butterfly.
Now my credentials read "severe social anxiety disorder."
I set myself as an example of what I am saying and I humbly ask that my request be carefully considered for the good of all. Thank-you and good night!
