The following case arrived at the Lex-Care office this week.
Keith Long, a case manager at the Kentucky River Foothills Program, is counseling a single mother of four who needs $750 to pay her rent.
The mother was receiving benefits under the Section 8 program, but no longer meets the eligibility standards. She is looking for employment and hopes to avoid an eviction notice.
At this time income is from Social Security disability, SSI and child support. Once the rent is paid and she finds work, the situation will be resolved.
