Lex-Care: Assistance with water and electric bill requested

December 11, 2013 

Pat Viens at St. Joseph East Hospital made a referral for her client to receive $500 to pay toward his electric bill. The applicant has end-stage Crohn's disease and will eventually need bowel surgery. He had to take an early discharge from the fire department. His wife receives disability due to a back injury. Last winter, their heat pump malfunctioned and ran up a large bill. After the bill is paid, he will set a budget plan with the electric company.

Woman can't pay $500 water bill

Sandra Ballew-Barnes at Breckinridge Family Resource Center made a referral for a client to receive $500 toward her water bill. The applicant's child support is inconsistent, causing her to fall behind on her bills.
