A 54-year-old man from Armenia came to the Kehillah looking for help. He could not work due to heart problems and had no money and no food. However, when he went to the Food Stamps Center, the representative denied his case. A Kehillah caseworker referred him to his doctor to get a letter stating he could not work due to his health condition. She then helped him to apply for public assistance, including food stamps and cash assistance. The caseworker also helped him apply for SSI.
