>You should have received a message from Dan Frye. You should 
contact him as he knows attorneys dealing with immigration 
matters. For better or worse, I believe you'll probably have to 
get a "Green Card" or equivalent or perhaps a sponsor who can 
vouch that you'll be supported financially before you can get a 
Social Security card or be accepted for most rehabilitation 
services. This is not my area of expertise so I strongly urge 
that you contact Dan Frye and the attorneys he recommends as they 
can give you more intelligent advice than can I.

>I'll contact Lou Oma Durand, Director of DSB, (the Department of 
Services for the Blind) on Wednesday
>to see what DSB's rules for accepting those who ar not U.S. 
citizens are. Those of whom I know, however, had status as legal 
aliens in the U.S.

>We'll work with you to see that you get training if at all

>>>To Whom It may Concern:
>>>     I am a regular blind high school student and I am a senior.
>>>I attend Eisenhower High School in Yakima, WA. I want to get
>>>scholarships and also I would like to get services and attend
>>>transition programs that would help me be independent and a
>>>successful adult. Today I turn 19 years old, and I am planning to
>>>maybe graduate this year.
>>>     However, I arrived to the U.S. four years ago and I am not a
>>>legal resident/immigrant. I currently live in the state of
>>>Washington and they say they cannot help me because I don't have
>>>a Social Security Number. I can't apply for any financial aid
>>>because of the same issue. In addition, just exactly two years
>>>ago I tried to attend a program that helps blind students with
>>>Orientation and Mobility (O&M), get independent and competent,
>>>and also get a job. This was the YES program or Bridge program
>>>(not sure which one exactly it is). This program was offered to
>>>me during the summer time. So, just when I was filling out the
>>>application I come across the "social Security" question, and
>>>this totally put a big huge gate in front of me and I can't open
>>>it so far. I mean, I totally missed the boat. It was a good
>>>opportunity. I would like to be able to do these things in my
>>>life and expand my horizons farther; open my wings to fly in
>>>     If there is any information regarding programs and services,
>>>scholarships to get higher education, and any type of aid I can
>>>get without a social security number, I would like to know. Any
>>>comments on this are welcome. And as I said, I am going to be
>>>successful in life and I'm not going to give up. I want to be a
>>>totally independent blind adult, live and work successfully, and
>>>get a career. Thanks.
