I own my home and I draw SSDI. I am in dire need for a new roof. I've had it patched but its still leaking. The leaks have ruined the sheetrock in two rooms. I have checked on local programs but haven't found anyone to help me. I am in Western Kentucky. Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated.

Hi! I clicked on Pennsylvania twice, but it led me right back to this page. I live in Philadelphia, PA, and have a mortgage that has just been approved for trial modification. I have a long list of repairs that need attention. Are there any grants available to me as a recipient of SSDI who also qualified for SSI, but SSDI that I now receive was the greater of the two. It's my boyfriend Craig and I, he helps to take care of me. SSDI is our only income. We were approved for and receive SNAP and medicaid benefits. Even my toilet and shower aren't functioning properly. We need our roof coated, a railing out front, the wall in the back room repaired, windows replaced, kitchen floor replaced, and a bunch of other things, too... Sometimes I pretend I'm living in a tree house, then it doesn't seem that bad. I am 49, my mother has called my home toxic for at least eleven years. I have lived here for 15 years, and it's the longest run of stability without moving around that I have ever known in my lifetime. I have always tried to be thankful for what I have, and know that others have greater challenges. If it is possible to get help in the way of a grant, it would be amazingly wonderful. Thanks for this amazing web page/site, it has helped me in many ways. Most Sincerely, Rachel
