Government Grant Money To Help PTSD Disabled Army Veteran Buy Home
by Rigoberto Rivas
(Cupertino, California, USA)
My name is Rigo Rivas. I am a First Generation American and Army veteran of the Iraq war.
I was born in Nicaragua. My family moved to Mexico, then to the USA where I grew up.
I'm a Combat Veteran. I love the USA and wishing to serve the country, joined the Army as a Cavalry Scout in Iraq.
I am 32 years old. Never had a wife. Never owned a home. I have never had a family.
I need to buy a house. I wish to live the rest of my years not in constant need of money.
I went to Iraq, where I got PTSD and Traumatic Brain Injury. There were lots of explosions and many events that make me sick just remembering.
I pay $1700 a month for rent in the Bay area. It's expensive, but homes are more expensive.
I need $5000 a month to own a home and support a family. A one-bedroom apartment alone is $1200 a month.
Then there's gas, heat, electricity and life in general. I have debts that I am not addressing so I can live.
It's really tough with mental disabilities
My incomes are:
VA Disability: $1000
SSA Disability $770
Living with my parents and they want me to move out. I am asking for help now.
I am looking for grants and help starting a business and help with purchasing a home.
I need to earn enough income to survive here and live comfortably.
Nothing yet, but I am open to good ideas on how to make money.
