Hello: I'm so sorry this is happening. Financial stress can create such a helpless, gnawing feeling. It's heartening that you reached out here; hopefully we can collectively point you in a direction where you can get some specialized help and hopefully feel less alone in this struggle.
Your State has pro bono legal aid. Access the Maryland Legal Aid Website by clicking here. There is an online form you can fill out and a phone number to call. It appears they have one-on-one clinics as well as free legal services for financially eligible people.
Also, take a look at the Arc's website here. There is an extensive list of resources for disabled and special needs Maryland residents.
Please keep us posted. All the best to you for better days ahead.

I feel all alone. We may lose our two bedroom fixer upper (only property) because I
cannot afford the high property taxes in Montgomery County, MD. The people in
power here just seem to care about wealthy non-disabled people.
Social Security claims I owe them over $13,000 and my son has been permanently
removed from the Developmental Disabilities Administration waiting list. There
seems to be no hope.
You've received some great advice already. Since you are a senior, I'd check out the agency that covers your area, by going to www.eldercare.gov, and typing in your zip code, then make an appointment to be seen by one of the social workers. It's probably located in Rockville. I also agree with your other responder to try your local representatives, the constituent services person. Because you need an advocate that will take a 'big picture' approach.
I am so sorry. Perhaps even an attorney at Legal Services could help? It sounds like a tangle.
Please keep us all posted? Ask questions? We have a legal expert on this site, too. Hang in there and good luck!
