I was in a nursing home due to having nowhere else to live. It appeared that my legal guardian had no intention of ever letting me out of the nursing home. I met John Burtrum with Disability Network when I filed a petition with the court to request a new legal guardian.
Thankfully, I got a wonderful legal guardian. Since working with John, I am now in a cozy apartment. Disability Network facilitated furniture, household supplies, food and rent assistance towards my first month's rent and security deposit. My life changed from living in hell to living in heaven on earth. I am happy and healthy. It is thanks to your good people that I am set up to restart my life, but a better life by far. None of this would have happened without John and the Disability Network. Thank you and God Bless you for the work you do!
