I’m so glad I discovered the Disability Financial Assistance Program.  After I was injured in a car accident, I tried go back to work, but it took months before the headaches and pain in my back went away.   Enrolling in the program allowed me the time I needed to get back on my feet.

I went through some really rough times after I had my baby.  I was working 2 jobs to try to make ends meet, but it was always a struggle since my daughter’s father resisted helping with our baby.

I needed someone to turn to for help in getting my child the assistance that she deserves.  The Child Suport Enforcement Department worked closely with me to help establish paternity and help me get child support payments.
