A women poses with her daughter and grandchildren

Watch: Jessie’s Story

After Jessie’s daughter died unexpectedly, all she wanted to do was take the best care possible of her grandson, Griffen. Then she got a letter saying his Social Security payments would be cut off, meaning he would not be able to access special services for his autism. She couldn’t afford an attorney. “I’ve always been a fighter, but this time I felt like the ground had gone out from under me.”

Luckily, MLSA was there to help.
