Plumbing Repair Assistance for Low Income Veteran?

My wife and I are both on disability. We can't use the plumbing; nothing drains. The sewer line is broken. We have no money for repairs and don't know what to do. I did serve 15 years in the army.

Many times local churches are the best place to ask for emergency help as many have members who can do the type of repairs you are needing but if the repairs are extensive you may have to go to other agencies. You do not have to be a member of a church to ask for help; just visit their office.

Try Google with free home repairs low income disabled family with your zip code. Several agency names will show and check each one to see if you qualify for help. Local agencies can approve 'help' quickly when there is an emergency situation (such as yours).

If you cannot get local help and you are a veteran, I believe you should begin your search for help with one of the organizations who help veterans.
If you belong to any of the veteran organizations that should be your first stop as they all have information on who to contact. Even if you are not a member you can visit their offices and ask where you can get help. These people are usually very helpful to any veteran who need help.

Here are some links to check but all request for help will require forms to be completed and Habitat for Humanity may be the only one that will respond immediately.

Here is a page from the VA that tells you of services you may be eligible for:

www.va.gov/.../

You can call their hotline to get more info: 800-827-1000.

If you have challenges getting information, you can always call your US Congressman (man or woman) and ask them if they can point you in the right direction. You can find them through Google by putting your town name in with the phrase US Congressman.

Wishing you and your wife all the best in obtaining services. Thank you for your service! You will be in my prayers for solutions.
