  1. I have a friend who is in a very difficult situation. She is legally blind due to cataracts ( No insurance to get surgery) is living in a very basic trailer but her abusive ex moved in with his girlfriend. She has an 8 year old kid and needs some help. She can’t drive to go apply for assistance due to the cataracts and I was wondering if you had services to help her get independent again?

    She would need rides to appointments (I work days or I would) and guidance on how to apply for programs to help her get out of the horrible situation.

  4. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a
    sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter
    and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the
