Hi all. My name is Caleb and My wife's name is Katrina. I became physically disabled after 25 years in the mental health field and my wife is a home heath aide. I have been fighting SSDI for over a year to get the benefits that I earned and am still fighting because despite the fact that I have been deemed less than sedentary, SSI states that I am over educated so it's going to court. My wife's client ( she only has one because he contracts her for 63 hrs a week) in the past calendar year, has been hospitalized for 10 out of 12 months and Katrina has finally exhausted her unemployment benefits. She will be getting her last payment next Wednesday which will be 63.00. She can file for an emergency extension after that and if it is approved, she will get an additional check for 301.00. We have been limping by with small loans from my sisters, and pizza from Mom. But now it's beyond that. We are luckily getting Food Stamps but Pa does not offer any type of financial assistance and the food prices here have doubled in the past 8 weeks but the food stamp amount hasn't.. The agencies that do help with rent etc are all tapped out. Katrina's client is supposed to be back home in about 30 days. After trying everything possible, I feel no other recourse than to try this platform. It is embarrassing and doesn't make you feel so great about yourself but I can't let us lose everything either so here I am; asking friends, family, and strangers for a leg up. 973.00 covers rent, utilities,appliances payment, and Katrina's medical insurance. We can not lose that, She has several medical conditions including insulin dependent diabetes.Once Katina is back at work or can get the extended benefits, we will be okay. We just need this boost to keep the wolves at bay. Thank you for any help you can give.
