Adamleap I am 57 disabled for 5 years due to abuse from ex-husband he tried to kill me, we lived together for 3 years then our son was born and we married in 8/1993 and divorced in 4/2003, now I can't draw his ss because I liked 4 months being married 10 years. My son and I live in the house by court order until my son is 21 in August then I have to leave with no where to go and no money, my only hope is to buy the house from him or he is going to sell it out from under us. I need a grant or help of some kind, I don't know where to turn. I wish I could draw his SS it is 3 times mine. Thanks for listen, if you know of any help please let me know. Thanks

My name is Andrea..I am 59 years old and if you had ever alluded to the fact that I could end up writing this after a career, high I>Q. and modeling offers, I would have fallen down laughing. Sorry, not being very articulate but the mood is leaving quickly. After raising my daughter alone buying a small home & saving constantly I find myself wiped out after 5 years of disability. (chronic pain & panic attacks). A so-called boyfriend stays with me & chips in $400-450/mon. A narcissitic, sadist nightmare. I've just been informed I could possibly need false teeth after years of paying thousands in dental bills & an mva which knocked out front teeth at 14 & a "fantastic" lawyer who procured less than &3,000 for me. I was advised 2 implants would cost me over 10,000. Ludicrous but not humorous. I'm looking for help and venting. This is not merely vanity but a phobia of false teeth I've had since childhood;before the car accident. Oh yes, at 14 I was a passenger on a movie date with someone I didn't care for but was trying to be kind. Is there ANY help out there? Someone who cares?

I want to know why it is that a person can be on disability, getting SSDI, has NO insurance because wife was laid off, but can NOT get Medical Assistance. This person also has $1400.00 a month in prescriptions, has been recently told his heart is failing and there is nothing they can do. The county assistance that they get is horrible. They never answer their phone, never have they received a call back from the messages left, and they have the balls to make several mistakes on their application and turn them down. How are they supposed to right a wrong that someone else is doing if they wont give them the time of day? And just for clairity, this is a County in WI and starts with an M. Im afraid if I put the name down I will somehow be hunted down and retaliated on. Paaaaathetic. The wolves are at their door wanting payment on thier medical bills. Mayo Clinic gives them an application to see if they can forgive some of their bill, but they want ALOT of private info, from 3 months ago, which has nothing to do with what is going on know. Besides that the last time they filled out one of the applications, the husband was not working, waiting to hear from disability and they had less money then they have now and they still turned them down. So why bother. It makes a person, who has been givin a limited time to live, just give up. Our government does NOT care, and has not for a very long time. Unlike our government, we can not turn around anytime we want and give ourselves a raise, on top of the top of the line insurance they have. We are becoming a third world country and fast. In order to get any kind of help you have to be living in a card board box, or be laying face down in the the street. It is very frustrating, when all I can do is watch as this family suffers through.

 in response to adamleap...   Hi Adam, I doo not wish to post my name publicly because of fear. I am disabled from an abusive ex-husband, I have a son and a daughter, neither are from him. He divorced me after he found out I would be disabled for life, and I suffer from chronic pain daily. He went to another town and divorced me by publication, I would not know of this without one of his friends telling me. I thought that to do that, was illegeal but have found out it is not. I lost a chance of being in front of a judge or jury to explain my condition and situation, he has a high paying job, I was married to him for 12 years, and in my state I would be getting a family support check from him...I live off of S.S. and a small pension from my work after saving enough money to hire an atty. I went back to court , my so called atty happened to be in "cahoots" (unknowing to me) with his atty.(which by the way, is know been disbarred) my atty. also lied to me about several things that would be pertanent to my case, and did not represent my case fairly or in front of a judge at all in simple dogged me into to signing a papern I thought was uncoooth but he kept saying he would take it back to court or some other facts came out, which ofcourse he never did. I talked to my legal aid office and they basically told me I had been railroaded by my atty. Which ofcourse leaves me in the same situation I was in before hiring him, (he got 125.00 per month awarded to me). right before my husband disabled me, I had a great career, a savings of 75,000.00 that was mine alone earned, outside of my regular job, but my med. bills and living expenses have long excceded that. I lost my home, cars, way of life, and now have not enough money to hire another atty. My ex has a home paid for, 2 motorcycles, boats, and alot of the money we earned together all ended up with him while I was busy in the hospital and getting rehab. It has been years of suffering and wanting to give up, but the American in me says I should somehow get my rights in front of a judge to straighten this out, I deserve atleast what was mine and my childrens from my working and savings alone, back from him. I get extremely upset and have a hard time and without the money to hire another atty. and the know how to get this back in court fear what will happen to me as I grow older as well as my childrens wefair. I really need someone to help me put this in writing to present to another atty. as well as the Atty's fee. Can you give me any suggestioons of help, and are there any housing or lenders that could help me secure a decent home. Desperate for to long...

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 !!!
