Lex-Care: Hospitalized woman needs help to pay rent

June 16, 2014 

Jennifer Newton, a social worker at the Lexington Senior Center, is working with a client who needs $350 to pay her rent. The client spent two weeks in the hospital after having surgery to remove a tumor. She has returned to work on a part-time basis.

Friends and family have helped with her utility bills and food, but she needs assistance with her rent. After receiving the assistance, the client will continue to work part-time until she is able to return to full-time employment.
