"My wife was discharged from the ARMY six months after I left the Marines, and the loss of our two incomes led to substantial financial problems. We relied on credit cards for everyday living expenses and quickly fell behind in paying our bills. My wife is now working full-time, and I am seeking work while participating in physical therapy. Rebuild Hope helped us create a household budget and paid our rent and utilities. Once I am working again we should no longer experience financial problems."
