The following request for assistance to pay a utility bill was received at Lex-Care last week.
Amy Wills, a social worker with the Central Baptist Home Health program, is working with a mother and daughter who need $454.58 to pay their electric bill.
The mother is the caregiver for her daughter, who has cerebral palsy and has never worked. They live on a fixed income from Social Security. The amount of their electric bill doubled from the previous month's amount. They have been able to pay more than half the total bill but need the amount requested to pay the balance. Arrangements have been made for them to participate in the monthly budget plan the company offers so the payments will be more manageable. They will then be financially stable.
