Foundation and Home Repair Assistance for Widow of a Veteran?

My mother, the 79 year old widow of a veteran needs financial assistance for foundation and home repairs. Her husband was a veteran who died of complications from Agent Orange during the war. How would she be able to get the help from the VA benefits that she is now eligible for?


Please help with directions or with contact information. She would love to live her life in her home. She lives in San Antonio Texas.

I would reach out to the VA in your area and explain the problem to them. A lot of times other vets can help a person out and fix up their home. If you have any place where you live that services local vets you can go there and speak with some other vets to see what type of help you can get your mom.


Reach out to them first and then maybe you can reach out to the local news station in your area and see if they can offer you some help.

Here is a link from the VA on the Agent Orange Benefits:

The phone number is 800-749-8387.

They can tell you what or if she is eligible for benefits for based on her husband's services and exposure to Agent Orange.

If you find you don't understand what you are being told, you may want to contact your Congressman Joaquin Castro .... I am putting his info below...and ask for help. Your tax dollars pay for them to assist you with things like this if you feel you need the help:
