My housemate is disabled and deaf. She has medicare and SSD, so her income is seriously limited. We live in Union Cty., TN and she has need of dental work, but so far we have not been able to find a local dentist who does sliding-scale or pro bono dental work. I too am disabled, so I am not able to help her financially. Does anyone know of a local dentist who can help her or work with us to pay for her needed dental work over time? Thanks in advance!

About stillhope

Your aid page is very helpful. I, too, am a single disabled mom with three good kidsMy oldest Benjamin is 20, Marissa is 13, and Matthew 11 yrs.  Its been hard over the years and sometimes resource to help seem nonexistant but its really heartwarming to know there are good souls like you who offer real help and have been there. The reason I came across your site was to find a way to get my car fixed so I can go to school. I live in Palmdale, Ca and theres no resources out here so Im hoping some of the resources reach me in California. I need low cost auto repair to move forward again. Thanks from a grateful mom

About Scrabble

Although I am anintellegent person, scolarly - wise, I have made bad choices in life. I have a verbally abusive, contolling, addict husband who contols ALL the finances. It has gotten so bad that I let alcoholism get the best of me, which resulted in job loss and arrests. My son has been taken away from me, and i wll be diviorcing soon. I have no vehicle, no job, and no finances. The good thing, though, is I voluntarily put myself in a 4 month rehabilitation program for alcoholism. I have one month to go. The Salvation Army is helping me get a job, a place to live, and  - the best part - all the support I need to get my son. They will also help me stay sober and be supportive for as long as I need them.

 My probelm is a vehicle. My husband got rid of mine, as his name was on it to do so. We WILL be divorcing, as he is toxic to me, and my son. I have no vehicle to get a job, and where I will be living has minimal means of outside transportation. I need help with transportation desperetly to be able to obtain a job. Please help.

Computers for kids - free/low cost computers

Computers 4 Kids is an organization which may provide computers to low income families with kids who cannot afford or do not have a computer. Located throughout the US in various communities, some organizations will provide education and training. You MUST check with the actual organization to verify what exactly they provide and to whom. As with any organization, they you must qualify according to their guidelines - various rules do apply. Unfortunately, Computers 4 Kids is not a national organization, rather a community sponsored organization. Therefore, the organization does NOT have a national database and each office has to be located individually. Some use the C4K name, others do not. All time, services, labor, and computers are donated by their respective community.

 GiveTech
People with severe physical disabilities struggle greatly with things most of us take for granted. Without help, many cannot write a letter, make a phone call, buy something from a store, or hold down a job. In very severe cases, even basic communication is impossible in any but the most laborious of ways. The computer (and, through it, the Internet) solves many of these problems and opens up whole new worlds to the severely physically disabled. Imagine the feeling of self-reliance that comes from needing something and ordering it over the Internet. Imagine the self-esteem one can gain from entering an Internet chat room and being thought of and treated as a 'regular' person, not someone with a severe disability. This computer-aided autonomy is impossible without an input device designed for the disabled. However, for many people, the cost of such a device excludes them from this new world of opportunities offered by the computer and Internet. GiveTech plans to solve this problem for many financially disadvantaged people with severe physical disabilities. 415.750.2576
