Desperately seeking financial assistance for dental work and vision exam and glasses

I am a married woman with limited resources and am in desperate need of some financial assistance so I can have some dental work done and have my eyes checked and glasses replaced. My husband is retired from the military and our dental insurance won't cover the complete cost of this dental work and we have no vision coverage of any kind. He served in the Army for 20 years. I am disabled and my sole source of income is Social Security. My husband gets military retirement, VA benefits and Social Security for retirement. We aren't eligible for any type of assistance because we make a bit too much to qualify, but we still are not in a position to come up with the kind of money that we need for things like this. He also needs to have his partial replaced, and we haven't even looked into that because of the cost. I am desperate because I know that I will have bigger problems ahead of me unless and until I can get this tooth fixed.

I am a 52 year old recently married (for the first time) woman who moved to Texas with my husband in 2004. He's retired from the military, and I am a disabled homemaker.

I am an avid gardener, manage an online gardening forum and am active in our church. We live in a wonderful community and have made some really great friends here, but financially, we are stretched as thin as the flimsiest piece of string in the world....We opted to get military dental insurance and it has helped us out so far. Now I am faced with needing to have a crown made for a tooth that is cracked and chipped and even with insurance paying 50% of the cost, we cannot afford to pay for it. Over the last several years, I have had to have a lot of dental work done, none of which would have been covered by insurance, but my mother graciously paid for all of it. Now things are tight for her financially so I don't want to ask her to help me again. This, and the fact that we have no vision insurance and I need to have my eyes checked and have my glasses replaced (as they are starting to fall apart,) are causing a lot of strain between my husband and me...I am looking for any means of help I can find so that I can get these things taken care of soon -- both so I don't encounter worse problems and so that it doesn't further strain things at home...
