Accident Disabled Mom Seeks Added Benefits For Better Family Life

by Angela Reasoner
(Springfield, Ohio, USA)

I am a 39-year-old mother of three boys. Two of them are in the military. I still have my 15-year-old at home.

My husband is 40 and he is unable to work, so I am supporting us on $759 a month

Disability Issues

I was a nursing assistant when I was injured at work in 2003. I have been unable to work since then.

I have had a back surgery and a neck surgery. The doctor said that I would probably be having another back surgery

Financial Hardship

I am trying to support myself, my husband and my 15-year-old son on $759 a month.

I never have the money to buy housing things. I lost my home because I could not pay the taxes.

I am really desperately in need of some money to pay all my bills and taxes and get my child what he needs.

Income Efforts

My sons loan me money sometimes.

I have tried Payday loans.

I also have gone to churches.

I just can't find any help. I am not sure where to turn now. I am scared and nervous all the time

Specific Needs

A grant would be good or something like that.

I just don't know where else to turn or what to do. The benefits that I get just are not enough to support us

I know exactly how you feel! I too need assistance because of my disability and my benefits cannot even feed me. Don't give up. I am not!
