I have been living in a homeless shelter for the past three months. I became homeless because my sister who was my "Representative Payee" with the social security office was not paying my bills but instead spending all of my check on herself and her friends. These folks became my new Representative Payee this past month and have been working toward getting me into my own apartment Today they wrote the check that paid my first months rent and I am so happy to be living like a normal person again and out of the shelter. The shelter was good, but there is no place like home!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

that I was homeless and now because of their help I have a home and they are paying all of my bills with the SSI check that I receive each month, and giving me a weekly allowance for food and other items.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

They reached out to me, asked me what I needed the most and delivered completely on all of my requests.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

They are all honest and kind and really listen to what I am saying.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Help everyone who is in need.

I live in goverment subsidized housing and am on SSI. I met these flks while over at thier church looking for some help getting a hot meal. Even though most people look at me with suspicion Jon was quick to offer help and also asked me if there was any thing else they could do for me. Because I never have any money left after I cash my check I asked him to help me handle my money so I would not get evicted from my apartment. He helped me set up a free checking acount at a local bank, change my address at the SSI office and helped me qualify for foodstamps, and in home health care. I call him my daddy now and Ms Gail is my mama!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very very very helpful and listend to my complaining and went way out of their way to see that all of my needs were met, including getting me a new coat for winter and grocerys while I waited on the food stamps.

I had a stroke in 2005 and also had one leg and arm amputated. I was side swiped by an automobile last year while riding in my electric chair on a street in Sumter. when Mr. Wood noticed me being pushed in a chair by a leggally blind friend of mine he stopped and asked if he could help. He took my broken chair to a repair center and brought me a loaneer electric chair to use until my chair is repaired, at no cost to me! I am free, and very happy.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

That I did not have to go to them, they found me and stopped and asked if they could help!
