Employment during a Pandemic Terry Ward 8/28/2021 I am having work done on my home. I am getting some new wall paper for my residence. It will look really good. With wall paper, when CEO job coaches call and inquire about work and then tell me they have found nothing. Then ask how I am doing? I can respond by telling them. With wall paper I can spend my days. Counting flowers on the wall. That don’t bother me at all. Playing solitaire until dawn, on the computer just for fun. Going on You tube, and watching re runs of Captain Kangaroo. Now don’t tell me. I’ve nothing to do. With this pandemic and variants I keep hearing you’re concerned about my joblessness. All the job leads you’re giving me remind me of Glen Gary Glen Ross. While CEO and D.R.S. need not worry none about where I have gone. I’m enjoying working none. I have lots to do. Counting flowers on the wall. That don’t bother me at all. Playing solitaire until dawn, on the computer just for fun. Going on You tube, and watching re runs of Captain Kangaroo. Now don’t tell me. I’ve nothing to do. Yesterday I put on a shirt and tie. I dressed up very nice, pretended I was on the job. It keeps my spirits up so I don’t have to frown. As long as I can dream. It’s hard to slow this worker down. So please don’t give a thought to me. You can always find me here. I’m having quite a time. Counting flowers on the wall. That don’t bother me at all. Playing solitaire until dawn, on the computer just for fun. Going on You tube, and watching re runs of Captain Kangaroo. Now don’t tell me. I’ve nothing to do.
I wonder why developmental disability services are not providing COVID vaccinations for their clients in the Supported Living Program and other clients who do not live ICFs? A presidential order has been signed to accelerate vaccinations for minority groups including people with disabilities. Many people with intellectual disabilities have comorbidities making an infection with COVID deadly. Also, I why are email addresses for staff in developmental services not available on line?
I HAVE ATTEMPTED TO REACH MY CASE WORKER, MS. BRIGHT, FOR OVER FOUR MONTHS NOW, WITHOUT SUCCESS! I am extremely desperate in all my attempts and endeavors to reach my case worker, Ms. T. Bright, over the past 4 months. I have called, left messages, sent emails, everything within my power to do, to contact Ms. Bright, and have not once, had any of my attempts been returned. I had been sent a letter, stating that she and I were to have a pre-schedualed phone conversation, regarding my S.N.A.P. benefits to ensure that they would not be interrupted, or cancelled, which she missed. After waiting over 3 hours, to hear from here regarding this interview, I called her extention over and over, trying to reach her, with no success. I have put in an address change with the Newport News office, over 2 months ago, to update my info and receive a new case worker here, and yet, no one has updated this information in the system. I have no been completely cut off from my SNAP benefits, and have no means to obtain food, due to the mistake of YOUR office, Ms. Bright, and am terribly upset that no one has, or is, answering me to help me!! I am BEGGING whomever this letter reaches, to help me restore my S.N.A.P. benefits, and sign up for T.A.N.F. for I am now homeless, without food, or shelter and do not know how much longer I can endure this. The Newport News office will not help because they tell me that I am STILL, after months of waiting for an address change, in the Virginia Beach Office system, and thus, they can do nothing until I speak with my case worker, Ms. T. Bright, who will not return my calls, or any other means of attempt to reach her. I am in dire need of help and plead with you now to tell me how I can restore my SNAP benefits, and obtain TANF, and not loose my MEDICAID. I thank you for your time, efforts and concerns regarding this matter, and truly hope to hear back from you within the next few days. Respectfully yours, Rebecca Cooley Sang
