Severly depressed man on Disability
A conversation with R.L. quickly reveals two things: First, this is a man of intelligence and culture. Second, this is a man who suffers from severe depression. Terminated from his full time job a few years ago, RL is receiving minimum disability payments of $700 a month. Without family, he fortunately has a few friends who help him. He was working a part time job, but that was cut back. His rent of $700 per month was due and he was in a state of aggitation. Because of YOUR donations, we were able to pay two months rent. He called the following day and said he slept the previous night for the first time in a week. He called again to tell us that his part time employer told him his hours would be increased.
This is just one of the ten cases we handled this past month. L'Shana Tovah.
