AT is a 27 year old female whose primary disability is a Musculoskeletal Disorder injury to spine after a fall on the job. After several frustrating medical interventions and a disability denial, she was referred to us from another nonprofit for advocacy, community independent living resources and help with benefits. Early on, staff was able to prioritize her needs and collaborate on a plan. Eventually she was approved for Disability, her credit was repaired and improved and she was able to maintain her current apartment and stay independent in the community.
