February 27, 2013 

Jennifer Hughes, a social worker at Hospice of the Bluegrass, is advising a family that needs $500 to pay their rent.

The married couple has a terminally ill daughter. Both parents worked full time, but the wife resigned from her job to care for their daughter.

Social Security disability benefits for the child are being processed and the wife will return to work when she is able.
