If you are telling the truth, your Brother is eligible for any help he needs. The only reason he would go without his Med's is if he wants to or is
unwilling to fill out some simple forms. He would also be eligible for Housing Assistance, Food Stamps and even Financial Aid. If you are in the
United States that is.
On a Board where people from all over the world post, I hate it when people mislead others outside the country about what the US is like. It gives
them the false impression we are heartless country.
Even if you are healthy and of working age, you need never spend a night without a bed or a day without food. Those who do are Mentally Ill,
Alcoholics or Drug Addicts and won't take advantage of the available help for that reason. They are Homeless because they choose to be so.
Get off your butt and go to the local Financial Aid Office and fill out the forms for you and your Brother. Locate the shelters. Locate the Churches,
Food Kitchens and Food Banks that are all over our country. Go to your Church if you have one and they will help you out. If not there are plenty of
secular organizations that will help.
We are the most giving people on earth. Don't play the boohoo game with people who live here and know the truth. It won't work. The 80% of us who are
still doing great in this country are still pouring money and food in to help you and your Brother.
Good luck. Been there once for about three days until a kind soul educated me and I found out I could have a bed and up to five hot meals a day
without a dime to my name. Stay away from the bad things that make you so you cannot go for help if that is the case.
The rest of you, if you have genuine sympathy, get off your butts and haul a load of food to a distribution center. Pull out your check book and write
a check. Hire a mentally ill person if you can. Hire a disabled person if you can. Put your money where your heart is. That is what made us who we
are. Ignore the worlds lies about us and the lies by our own citizens who are angry.
