you do know if you work too much you can lose your benefits? There are also charities that help people with reduced vision do a lot of things. Even look for work. When I was a nurses aid one of my clients used to go to one where they were teaching her how to do office stuff like MS Office. I'm sorry I can't remember the name of the charity. Every state has what used to be called a Rehabilitation commission. You can look them up for your state and get help with training, bus fare, and help to find a job. Most major cities with a transit system also have a van system that is for disabled people who for one reason or another find it difficult to ride the bus.
Depending on where you are there are programs for people on public housing with children to buy a home. Also apply to habitat for humanity. They might have a wait list and you are required to spend so many hours volunteering your labor. Also if you are in a wheelchair or have other physical handicaps there are non-profit apartment complexes that are in nice neighborhoods. Look for Accessible Space Inc on the internet.The HUD website also has lists of apartment complexes that are not public housing or section 8 that go on what your income is. If you have legal custody of the kids you should be receiving assistance for them. If you don't you should see about getting it.
I am a disabled woman age 45. I had a stroke when I was younger. My husband is also disabled but not yet receiving ssi. We are awaiting a decision from social security but honestly since his issues are mental/emotional and he always pretends everything is just peachy in front of strangers I'm not hopeful we will get it even though I know he has trouble even leaving our room. We live in Houston, TX. We are currently living with family which isn't a good situation. I have applied to a subsidized non-profit apartment in San Antonio but if we get it I don't know where I'm going to find $1000 for us to move. Anyone know where I can get help?
if you are on social security disability you should have medicare to pay for medical bills for yourself. There is also a program to pay the Medicare premiums if you are low income. If you live in a major city there are often programs that offer Medicare management organizations that offer lots of extra benefits for eligible Medicare people.. You maybe eligible for medicaid. With high medical bills you should have applied for medicaid due to financial need. Medicaid should continue even after he gets a job due to you high medical bills. Also if you live in a large city there are often day labor places your husband can go to to make money doing simple stuff like cleaning up construction sites, stocking shelves at stores, or simply pushing a broom. There also local resources to help pay rent, utilities, etc. I also suggest that if you live in a house you consider taking in a boarder if you have a spare room. It need only be temporary but it might help someone who can't afford an apartment but has enough to rent a room. Many of these are college students living far away from home or disabled individuals on ssdi.
