I agree with you. The government has to do something to give spare more budget to disables. Maybe lower their mortgage refinance rates or something. You can check.

I would call congressman, senator or other local representatives in your area. You will be surprised at how willing your local congressman is to help.

Traci, You might want to try and call your local congressman's office. They should have a list of public resources that can help you in your situation. Good Luck!

Have you checked out the "Where Can I Find?" tool on AFB's Home page?
http://www.afb.org/services.asp

You can locate organizations (in your area) that provide services to people who are blind or visually impaired and their families.

You can use the Directory to find a service provider by name, state, country, or service category.

On the drop down menu, "Find helpful services.." select the following category, "Housing Services."

In Housing Services you will find information on
housing facilities or a variety of assistance related to individual housing, such as information and referrals to independent living arrangements, nursing homes, or assisted living facilities.

Hope this helps.
