My sister and her husband are elderly and their water heater cannot be repaired. The water heater leaked for several hours and water flooded the floors. The only way to stop the water, the main water had to be turned off. They have had no water for a month and 2 weeks. They have never ask for help from the government and asking for help was very difficult for them to do so.

After urging her to call your organization, they said they would call. Her husband called the next day and was told to fill out the form. He immediately brought the filled out form to your office and the next day you needed more information and again he got it to you immediately. She and her husband came to your office and explained they had no water. They waited several weeks and called and was told they were approved and it could be around a month and to call at a later date. Again, they have no water. They were told the funds were available. He called several times for an updates and the last person he talked to was shocked that they had been without water for so long and he told her he had already explained that to someone in your office. She said she will talk to someone and get back the next day. Since nobody called him back, today, he called and they were devastated when you told them you had no funds at this time. There are no family members who can come up with the money and feel terrible about it.
Do you know how difficult it is for someone to ask for assistance and how embarrassing it is? I'm sure they will not contact you again and that is not acceptable that they have been put through this, when they were told you will help them. I know you work through donations and do a great service for people, but to tell them they have been approved and have the funds and then now you don't, is just not right. Being in the situation they are in, they have animals and won't leave their house. Please, is there any way you can help them immediately? Thanks, Kathy Fields.
