Meet The Christy Family
After serving eight years in the Army - including two
tours in Iraq, Ryan Christy was medically discharged and promptly
filed for merited, service-connected disability compensation from the
Veterans Administration. After more than two years and five appeals his
rating was finally raised from 30% to 100%. His multiple medical
problems will continue to require on-going treatments. Unfortunately,
during this time Ryan has struggled to make ends meet. Rebuild Hope created a 12-month budget for Ryan, counseled him on dealing with his debt obligations and currently contributes monthly grants to help cover his family's living expenses
until his social security disability benefits begin.
