We were approached by a caseworker from the Viera, FL VA hospital. The veteran is 90% disabled, suffering from depression, anxiety, PTSD and seriously behind on her bills. Separated from her husband who, since she has the above problems, has custody of their children but, with her pension payment, she is to pay child support which adds to the financial burden.
In the past the vet tried to take her own life, mutilated herself and overdosed, and reports her husband had sexually assaulted her. She’s behind on all bills and the caseworker is trying every possible source to assist – fearing that she will lose her car and therefore her remaining independence.
Veterans’ Outreach was asked to assist on the overdue car payment which we promptly did.
