Direct Center for Independence:
“Veronica* is a disabled woman living with a disabled adult son and grandchild.
Both Veronica and her son lost their jobs due to COVID-19. Adding to their struggle, Veronica was in a severe car accident two weeks ago.
The accident has left her paralyzed, and as of right now, she is still in the hospital. Because her son is disabled and she claims him on her taxes, he did not get his own stimulus check. The family has no income at the moment and, given the accident, Veronica now faces limited prospects for future earning until her benefits application is approved. Their landlord agreed not to take Veronica to court for an eviction, but he warned that unless the family catches up on bills soon, he will need them to leave.
This support will help Veronica and her family meet rental payments as they wait for crucial benefits to process.”
