Susan's family has struggled since August, when her husband died, to reinstate Susan's own Social Security benefits or to help her obtain survivor's benefits, but as of yet they have not been successful. Social services is a difficult system to wade through, even with the help of a case worker and an advocate. There is hope that around her 60th birthday, which is coming up this year, her benefits will be approved and she will have the income she needs to continue living in her small apartment in West Sacramento.
Susan's children and sister have managed to pay for her rent with the support of various non-profits, and more recently with their own funds, but they've hit a wall with the resources available and are now in need of assistance to pay Susan's rent. If evicted from her home Susan would not have any other options for housing.
The money we are requesting will pay for 3 months of rent for Susan Spear, ensuring a disabled woman is able to stay in her home.
