On June 4th of 2014 I got hurt at work and two weeks later my spouse got hurt. For two years we where on workers comp. Workers comp checks stopped coming in on August 25th of 2016 but, My physical Therapy was not over until January 5th of 2017.
I was put on permit restrictions to only lift 5 lbs. I had TFCC Tears in both hands and the surgery did not go well. My spouse has Lupus and Anxiety where she can not leave the house.
Since January I have been looking for a job and filled out Fifty applications a month and everything keeps coming back as a no for a job. Everyone keeps saying this is a safety concerned and will not hire me.
My last hope of getting a job was a company I worked at ten years ago. The company said I was on the rehire list and asked me to come in for an interview. The next week I went to the interview and my interview lasted for 3 minutes. I seen they had something written on the paper about my injury. He looked at it and told me he could not hire me because of my injury and I was a safety concerned. I started to cry and was asked to leave his office.
Out side I dropped to my knees because it was my last hope for a job. I called my disability lawyer and she told me it could take up to a year before I get my disability. We are about to be evicted from where we live at an RV park and have to be out by August 4th 2017. Our RV is a travel trailer and we have no way of moving it because my truck got repossessed.
We went to all agencies and no one has been willing to help us with food, rent, or anything. At the food stamp office we where told they could not help us unless we had a part time job working 20 hours a week before we could get help with food. I told the lady if I had a job I would not need help.
Another agency we tried to get help paying for rent but, They told us because we live in an RV park they could not help us. We would have to live in a house or an apartment before they would help.
If anyone would be willing to help all we need to be able to pay for rent and electric and food until we can get our disability. We are very desperate and need help. Please Help Us keep a place to live and keep us from being homeless.
I have estimated that we would need around $10,000.00 to last us for a year to get our disability and keep the place we live. Which will be used for rent, Electric, Gas, and food.
