I can take them to the man's house and let them talk to the man. I even told them this but nobody will help him. They each want to pass the buck. I can understand maybe one church not being able to with the technology "cell phone" they could call each other and take up a love offering I know this because I have seen it done as a child.

Have you contacted adfac? You could also call John at Oak Ridge House authority ext.26 he knows alot of other places and resources he can get you in contact with. So many people take advantage of the area churches and they go broke by helping those that do not want to help themself. Also call Isaac at Glenwood baptist, he is youth minister but he can go above and beyond to help this man.

Thank you for your help I called Isaac at Glenwood baptist church. He told me he did not know who gave me his number, that he could not help this was not his department. I talked to the secetary and she said they could not help this was not something they did. WOW a church that helping the paralized and disabled is now what they do??????? I also called Oak Ridge housing he gave me a number to a place that helps the homeless. They told me they don't know if they can help or not because he is not living in a car (he does not have one can't drive ??) not living on the street, or in a shelter. Well if he was living in a shelter why would he need electricity. This is amazing to me where is the heart at in Tennessee????? Also where is the Christians at in Oak Ridge, Clinton ??????????Is everyone so COLD HEARTED!!!!!!

Have you tried putting a request out on Craigslist sometimes works, the more information that can be validated, the better as people are often just trying to get money. If there was a specific amount due at the water and electric company, people could just donate amounts straight to them to get his services reconnected. There are people concerned!

Well you have to realize this man is paralized I am trying to get him help but not put him in danger.He has had people break into his house and steal from him while in the hospital. Therefore I am limiting his personal information on here. I have no problem meeting someone and introducing to the man or give them more information. Also I was told today that one organization will not help because he is not homeless???? I do not uderstand this.

How is it that he is a quad and bed ridden, but has a home to himself?

Who was paying these bills up to that point? How has it suddenly became a problem where it couldn't be paid?

By letting people know his name and what utility company is not divulging a lot of personal information. By doing that, people can check for themselves if the bill has gone unpaid, and can make donation amounts anonymously.

No offense, but the world of scam artists would be the culprit of your problems of not getting any help.
