Yvonne Goodridge, a case manager at Community Action, is counseling a young woman who needs $169 to pay her rent. The woman's roommate moved out, leaving her to pay the total month's rent. This created the need for assistance. Once the adjustments to her budget are made, she will be able to manage.
