Today, we’d like to share a “Case of the Week” from our Sarasota FL office.
Veteran’s Fear of Power Shut Off RELIEVED
Our Sarasota office was contacted by a veteran with a long history of homelessness. The VA’s Hud-Vash program finally furnished him with an apartment from their list but, as is their policy, their assistance is limited to rent and, without income, he has run out of funds. He was particularly eager to avoid having his power shut off which another agency had promised to underwrite but reversed themselves and declined. In desperation, he asked his VA case manager for a suggestion and was given Veterans Outreach – he made the call and we stepped in to guarantee payment, taking the necessary steps. His relief was so palpable that we could hear it over the phone!
