The Connelly family consists of a father, mother and seven-year old daughter and the only income consists of SSI (698/mo). The SSI was cut off in 6/12 due to supposed assets over $3k. The family is behind in rent (no payments since 6/12, although landlord not currently threatening eviction). The family is working with Outreach Worker and SSA Liaison at Quigley’s office to remedy SSI situation because their assets are not over $3k. Within 7-10 days of 9/14, monthly payments of $628 will be reinstated, however back pay will not reinstate until hearing (6-12 months now–Quigley’s Liaison will try to speed up). Family is in need of rental assistance and other household goods/kid needs from a general store (like Target).
The ministry has so far assisted with school supplies for Shahd and provided a $75 Target card.
