Today we want to share a “Case of the Week” from our corporate office in Liberty Township, Youngstown Ohio.
Education Paid Off
A veteran had an appointment to meet with our Service Director, Bob Julian. He had a big problem. He had a $20,000 school loan from the 1970’s that he has been deferring since then. He is disabled and receives $1,000 per month. He’s been heavily hassled in the recent months and really needed to get rid of the stress.
He visited various agencies hoping that they could help with the problem and no one was able to do anything. While he was here, Bob made some calls. One call was to the loan holder. Bob explained that the veteran only had $1,000 coming in monthly and that the loan would never be able to be satisfied, and that the veteran was suffering a hardship because of it.
The lady on the other end of the line was named HOPE and she was quite sympathetic and pulled a few strings or chains in this case to waive the entire debt and penalties.
The veteran left here with a spring in his step and the heavy hand of debt thrown aside.
