Widower needs help to pay rent

Lydia Jacobs, at the Bluegrass Area Agency on Aging and Independent Living, is assisting a widower who needs $450 to pay his rent.

The client is a veteran of the Vietnam War and a native of Lexington. His wife died four years ago. The client has had health issues lately that required a brief hospitalization. He has gotten behind on bills due to his medical expenses. He has requested assistance from area churches to help with his utility bills but is still behind on his rent.

In the past, the client has lived comfortably on his Social Security income and will be able to do so again after receiving assistance.
