Simone was out of work for several months before she came to Greer Relief. She had some medical issues and they became so severe she was scheduled for surgery. She tried to go back to work, but was sent home again due to those same medical issues.
Simone applied for Short Term Disability, but her application was put on hold while they waited on documentation from her doctor. Her doctor has already completed the follow-up and has released her for work. However, her employer refuses to allow her to return to work until their onsite physician clears her as well.
At this time, they still have not scheduled an appointment with their physician. Once Simone is back at work, she’ll be able to cover all her expenses again. She owed two months of rent in order to stop her eviction. Greer Relief covered part of the balance owed and found a community partner to cover the remaining balance. Simone’s eviction was stopped and she was able to find money herself for next month’s rent.
