Veteran with Disabled Granddaughter

Another “Case of the Week” from our Sarasota FL office presented by Bob Graham, Regional Manager.

Thru referral from another agency, I was contacted by a vet – disabled from an auto accident and currently unable to work.  He takes care of a disabled 19 year old (“mental capacity of a 12 year old”)  granddaughter as both of her parents are in heroin rehab.  The veteran had put together all available funds to cover rent,  but now no food or $ for personal items until SS check in early Feb – so we helped him get over this short term hump.  He was very grateful and said he would help us in the future in any way he can.
