Another way VETERANS ONE HAND UP was able to help a Veteran recently was by paying one month rent including late fees. The Veteran’s monthly budget was tight to begin with and relied on the income of the spouse. Due to a combination of reasons (including unexpected power outages and temporary closure of the spouses workplace) the couple had gotten behind on all the monthly bills. Applications were made, with the assistance of a VA social worker, to a variety of support agencies for assistance with the living expenses. VETERANS ONE HAND UP was able to catch the rent up thus taking some pressure off the struggling couple. Helping with a one time rent or mortgage payment, in unexpected and temporary situations, is one possible expense VETERANS ONE HAND UP can consider helping with.
