The Santa Fe New Mexican - 12/16/2018

Dec. 16--A 41-year-old homeless man says he is unable to work because of physical disability and has medical issues with liver disease and diabetes.

He says he receives $750 a month in Social Security benefits and has had difficulty finding housing.

He is asking for help getting into a studio apartment, as well as assistance paying for car repairs and his cellphone.

The applicant is among hundreds of people seeking help from the Empty Stocking Fund this season.

----The Empty Stocking Fund is a project of the Santa Fe New Mexican.
