I am a disabled 55 year old female. With many physical ailments, it is difficult for me to get around. My husband has been unemployed for over 1 1/2 years and with unemployment benefits ending, we can not live on my social security disability check. I need help. Currently I can not get around by my self because of the difficulties walking, I need a power wheel chair and because of taking care of my family for all these years, my teeth are rotten and falling out of my mouth, the little I have left. I try to make children that are terminally ill a memory quilt .. no cost to them .. and I can't afford to do that either. Can you help. We are so far in debt .. I don't see and end is sight .. we have over $100,000 in medical bills / bills / rent ... you name it we owe them .. I am fearful for my husband sanity .. I need him strong to take care of me and with no money .. well I hope you can see what I mean.

Hi,
I am a 54 year old disabled man. I have a bad seizure disorder and recently diagnosed with P.A.D. I have a solid background in computers, servers, and I have spent years consulting small and large businesses in information services. I also used to teach A+ training to young children and adults. I am seeking a grant to which I can secure a building or house in which I can do this. Also out of this I would like to offer web design, telecom, and also have those classes taught for no-cost or low fee, with the income from design services and telecom work covering those expenses.

IT IS MOST UNFORTUNATE TO REALIZE THAT BIG FOUNDATIONS NEVER HELP PEOPLE WHO ARE IN REAL NEED!! MOST GRANT FUNDS FIND THEIR WAY INTO UNSCRUPULOUS PEOPLE, WORKING IN THE ORGANIZATION THAT HAS BEEN FUNDED.

I SAY THIS FROM MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE. I AM CHAIRMAN OF A VERY SMALL NGO IN INDIA. WE DO NOT HAVE FUNDS YET TO BE ABLE TO GET A TAX EXEMPTION CERTIFICATE FROM THE GOVERNMENT. A VOLUNTEER'S SON, AGED 9 YEARS, WAS RUN OVER BY A SPEEDING TRUCK AND IS NOW FIGHTING FOR HIS LIFE. I APPROACHED NUMEROUS FOUNDATIONS FOR FINANCIAL HELP, BUT NONE HAVE COME FORWARD TO HELP THE POOR CHILD. HE DOES NOT REQUIRE MILLIONS.BUT ONLY USD 21000 FOR HIS MEDICAL AND REHABILITATION. I EVEN REQUESTED TO START A HELP CAMPAIGN TO MOBILIZE FUNDS FOR THE CHILD....YET......TILL NOW I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO FIND 21000 KIND-HEARTED PEOPLE WITH A CONSCIENCE WHO WOULD BE WILLING TO DONATE JUST ONE DOLLAR FROM THEIR PICKET FOR A GENUINE CAUSE.

ALL THOSE WHO READ THIS MAIL, IF THEY SO WISH TO HELP THE CHILD MAY CONTACT yakshinifoundations@live.com FOR FURTHER PROOF OF THE CHILD AND PAYMENT ROUTING.

THANKS. MAY GOD BLESS YOU ALL!!

Hi, My name is Adam I accidently came accrost this site. I do not know where you live but I have some basic knowledge that can help you. First I am a quad who has been on ssi for almost 11 years. In the past 8 years I went to college got a bachlors degree working on my masters. went to work (still kept my ssi and medicaid) and started my own non-profit organization. I also bought my own house and had the goverment remodel it for me. Here is ow you start: 1. call your local rehabilitation service commission. every state (county) has one. if you have a disability and qualify to go to school THEY WILL PAY FOR IT! 2. Go to ssa.gov look up social security red book. read it. this book will give you information on how to go to work and still keep some of your ssi. 3. Start a Plan for Achieving Self Support (PASS). you can work part time go to school and get a car paid for without losing any ssi or medicaid. this is what I do for a living now. I am a social security benefit specialist. if you need my help email me at adamleap@ yahoo.com

I am a disabled male with a desire to start a small business, I am noticing that evrywhere I go looking for a grant it always says free until you start the application then they want you cc number for something. I have even gone back to school and gotten my degree in Business Management trying to give myself an edge. I wish when they say free the really meant free.

Hi> I'm writing this to find help to keep my grandparents house which was on a reverse mortgage. I was told to fax funeral bill since death certificate wasn't available yet & financial durable power of attorney. Also the attroney faxed a copy of my grandfather's will showing he left house to me. Since then I have been told my fax was gotten on 2/18/09 & the attorney's was on 2/25/09. Then someone came to my door with a receipt like paper saying this is an attemp to collect a debt & etc. No company logo written in pencil with a number which went to IndMac Federal bank. I called & everyone was rude to me & said they were part of Financial Freedom The Reverse Mortgage Specialist. I called mortgage company & now they were being rude to me saying they never got faxes & it wasn't in the notes. I was told by one of thier customer service reps. I would get a letter in 30days & I would have to let them know my intentions of the house. Also that I had 6 months to buy or sell house. Now they act like they never talk to me & seem like they are trying to take the house from under me. I did find out that the mortgage company & the 800# on the statements are the same. I couldn't find an address for the mortgage company. I need help please. So if anyone has any info please let me know. I can be reached at email addy: pook_muchie@sbcglobal.net.

Thank-You For Letting Me Comment On This !!!

Try calling local social services office (ours in NC has a program that helps cover heating/cooling costs for low/fixed income individuals- up to a certain amount). Our power companies also have a fund set up (not sure how to apply for this one though). Or call your local United Way, check to see if you have Cooperative Christian Ministies in your area they are there to help with prescriptions/food/shelter/heat/air costs also. Good Luck!

I am a disabled female and have tried to secure help but cannot find any. I am interested in worling from home. I need a car, rewiring of door bell to indicate someone is at the door, a better indicator of smoke and fire, and I am using a cell phone which is hard to hear ring as well as individuals calling. I lost everything in Hurricane Katrina and because of the inability of having a land phone the majority of the people here opted to have cell phones which I have retained.

I am looking for help  and I do not have monies to pay for a kit or whatever nor am I interested in illegal activities.

 If you cannot help, please forward this to someone who is willing to help.

May God bless you.
