Your gift will transform the lives of our neighbors who are at risk of losing their housing.
This past year, your support has gifted Danica with economic stability and brightened her future! Experiencing chronic kidney failure and often unable to work due to dialysis treatments and a transplant, Danica (age 35) had been denied $1,780 in monthly Social Security benefits for a year, and was also wrongly informed by Social Security that she needed to pay back $123,000. Danica turned to BLC for help.
Danica’s BLC attorney quickly started building her appeal to Social Security. In March, Danica received justice – she was freed from the $123,000 overpayment, and was found eligible for $3,000 in back pay. No one in our community struggling with a disability or illness should be denied representation to obtain their rightful Social Security benefits because they can’t afford help.
You made justice possible. Thank you.
Your donations allowed Danica to overturn a $123,000 overpayment assessed by Social Security – one of BLC’s largest settlement cases! But, there are more people like Danica across King County, and they need your help. Because of your generosity, we provided accessible legal aid to 1,240+ people living with disabilities and without housing in our community last year.
Will you join me in making a tax deductible gift of $100 to support economic stability for other BLC clients in need like Danica?
Every dollar supports people who are living with disabilities and are homeless or low-income. Thank you for making it possible for BLC’s clients to achieve economic stability.
