With a little help from my friends
Organized by: Darlene Wolfe
Most of you know I'm disabled with RSD... and while I'm able to do pretty much anything... this condition makes me an insurance liability to any company. I've worked in the service industry for years. Six years prior to my being disabled, I chose to become a stay at home mom and keep an eye on my then teenagers. Once I became disabled, I like many others filled for SS. Imagine my surprise when they said "Sorry you only qualify for SSI". The gov't thought that I could survive on, then 520$ a month. With being divorced and on my own, there were numerous times I lived in my vehicle. My kids have been great on helping me since then, but their families are growing and room is getting scarce. I need my own space and they need theirs. I walked through Lancaster city, applying for every type of aid there was. Only to be turned down. I found a cute little place within my budget... but being they now only give me 733.00 a month.... saving money isn't an option. So I'm turning to my friends, if I can get a little help to make the first months rent & security.... I'd be ok. I don't mind struggling... and let's face it... until this gov't sees no-one can survive on that amount, I'll struggle and that's fine. I can't even tell you how hard this is to ask you all for help... but I have no other options right now! So if you can find it in your heart to help me out right now I'd be so eternally grateful. Any amount you might be able to spare would help. Thank you for taking the time to read this and even consider helping me. Much love to you all!
