Anthony B. is a 61 year old veteran, honorably discharged from the U.S. Air Force where he served as a Chaplain’s assistant. “My current financial situation occurred due to loss of employment, unemployment benefits and resulting homelessness. I ended up living in a rehabilitation center for homeless veterans at the VA Hospital Cleveland (Domicillary) for four months. From there I obtained a VA pension based on unemployment and symptoms of depression and PTSD. I receive $900 monthly; however, a portion of that goes for rent and the rest for living expenses. I am actively seeking to return to work; however, it has been extremely difficult, partially due to the economy, age discrimination and a lack of substantial experience as a social worker (total 3 1/2 years). I have a master's degree in social work and a bachelor's degree in psychology and can\'t find work. A majority of the social work opportunities require a car in order to see clients face-to-face in their homes and schools. Recently, my car stopped working. I thought it was the result of vandalism but it was determined that the car was not vandalized but needs a fuel pump. I have contacted several repair shops and the estimate is $750-- $430 for the parts and 2.3 hours labor. I need this help so I can get back on my feet in order to do what I was trained to do -- help others, just like GiveLocally is doing.”

They need: $1000 for Car Repairs; $500 Basic Needs
