Need to get this back to the top, Nicholas' family will be without income and health insurance as of February 28th. The accident made his dad, Kelly, unable to work and he has been forced to retire from his job. He can't have retirement benifits for 18 months. They are going to try and get Cobra coverage until then, but it costs $1800 a month. My wife was at his house yesterday and says it is an absolute emotional disaster zone. My wife stayed up late last night looking online for some help for them from the government and has found some possibilities, but it will take time to get anything into effect. We are going to contact Bank of America and see if they can hold off on collecting the mortgage for a while so the family can concentrate on things they need. My family has given all we can and i'm hoping some of you guys can help out alittle again. $5 or $10 dollars will help at this point. They don't have money for groceries. Nicholas needs constant medical care and frequently spends a night in the hospital and makes trips to Atlanta to see one of the only specialists in the county that can help him. They have not sought out any goverment help prior to this and have worked hard to make a go of it without assistance, but they seem to face tragedy and misfortune more than any people I have ever met. Nicholas loves Rovers and Jeeps and maybe one weekend soon we can get some people together and have a little car show at their house and take them out to dinner. The paypal is still up so please help if you can. Every dollar will help. Thanks!

Do they have a social or case worker for public assistance? One of my old roommate's girlfriend was one and they would do as much as they could - hotel rooms, medical assistance, job placement, all that stuff if people would just come in and ask for assistance.

no, they have had one for Nicholas through the school system, but nothing for the family. That is what we are working on now. The family just hasn't wanted to be "welfare people" and still won't come out and ask for help from people. I think it is especially hard and embarassing for his dad to ask. Help with small stuff until something is set up is what is needed.
