Success Story

"Marysia" (fictitious name) came to HRA’s Polish Outreach Coordinator after learning she had a brain tumor. Needing surgery, she had to quit her job as a housekeeper and was financially unprepared. Though the surgery was successful, a problem with her legs makes it impossible for her to return to work.

The Coordinator began by filing for disability benefits – a long and discouraging process. However, Marysia eventually received prorated benefits. Next, the Coordinator helped her apply for energy assistance and set her up on the matching payment plan for utilities. Her disability benefits helped her pay her past-due rent and utility bills. CNG forgave half of her $2,000 bill because she was able to make payment toward the arrearage.

HRA’s Polish Outreach Coordinator also helped Marysia apply for United States Naturalization. Her interview was scheduled for January 2013. Today Marysia has income and is no longer dependent upon anyone. For this she is very relieved and grateful for all of HRA’s help.
