I have no money at all. i found a place but it will not be ready till Oct 22. thats if the owner wil let us rent it. so far we are the only ones who even called and filled out his ap. I dont know what to do. I dont have money to stay at a hotel its to cold to stay in a tent....

Yes, Cognitopia.com is a great resource. Stemming from a federally grant funded research lab, the support tools from Cognitopia for individuals with cognitive disabilities are focused on developing independence, self-determination, self-esteem, and most of all successful and quality lives.

The tools focus on visual scheduling, video modeling, and (soon to be released) personal wellness. In R & D is also a social program tool that connects individuals with their friends making it easy to encourage socializing and support between friends.

For families struggling with finances, included is a link to an organization that will assist parents in finding and accessing resource in their area. The Missing Piece, LLC. specializes in the Katie Beckett Deeming Waiver because of their years as Medicaid Eligibility Specialist. However, as a result of their partnerships they have found a number of different resources within the community.
