Question by Meg: What can I do to help my friend whose father had a stroke?
My friend’s father recently had a stroke and was denied disability, although doctors say he’ll never work again. Because of this, my friends family is going to lose their house and my friend is dropping out of grad school to move back home to try and hold his family together. Are there any organizations or foundations that have some type of scholarship or fund for situations like this? Can I nominate either my friend specifically, his father, or his family in general to help them out in any way? If anyone has any ideas at all, please let me know.

They need to appeal the disability decision and contact a lawyer ASAP. They also need to apply for assistance from the health and human services department of their county aka social services. Also contact your senator too right away via email.
