Staying in a Hotel

Another Case of the Week from our FL office. They are so busy there with veterans requests and we sure thank Bob Graham, the Regional Manager, for sharing with us.

A medically discharged veteran, together with her Case Manager from James A. Haley VA Hospital, Tampa, contacted me.  She’s the victim of domestic abuse and, with her 14 year old daughter, have left their residence for a local hotel. Despite a direct deposit designation, her VA check went to her house and she is unwilling to chance an encounter with her husband.  She’s been staying in a hotel and we will cover one of her nights together, for the other 2 nights required, with other agencies that the caseworker is assembling on her behalf.  After the holidays she will move out of state when her child has completed the current semester.
