Lex-Care: Laid-off nurse and mother of two needs help to pay rent

May 12, 2014 

Janice Austin, a Lex-Care board member, has requested $500 to help a client pay rent. The client was laid off as a nurse in March. She is a single mother with 8- and 5-year-old daughters. The loss of her job has caused her to fall behind on her bills and rent. After finding employment, she will be able to keep up with her bills.
