Michael is in his fifties and lives independently in subsidized housing. He contacted us to help "straighten out" his Comcast bill, but when we met him we noticed that he had a significant head wound. He said he was assaulted near his home, and that they stole his apartment keys, $20, and his Colorado Rockies hat.
He went to the hospital the day after the assault, where he was treated and released with a bill for $2,500 (since he didn’t have appropriate Medicare coverage). Because he’s on the Medicaid waiver waiting list, Michael is without a Resource Coordinator to check on his health and welfare monthly, in addition to assuring his medical coverage is in good standing.
For weeks we have stood in many lines with Michael in order to receive proper health care benefits, appropriate medical follow up, and to assist him with paying his bills. We’ve worked with the District Attorney’s office to obtain victim’s assistance funds to cover his $2,500+ hospital bill, and soon we will begin the process of moving him to a safer community.
Celebrations are always in order after major accomplishments like these.
None of the goals would have been met without Michael's initiative.
So, air-hockey was certainly in order.
