Danielle Gilchrist, a case manager at Community Action, submitted the only case received at Lex-Care last week. Her client is a single mother who needs $650 to pay her rent.
She was employed at a local fast-food restaurant. She fell behind on her rent when her employer reduced the number of hours she could work. Since then, she has been promoted. She now works full-time as a crew trainer, and her hourly wages have increased. She plans to continue working and improving her work status.
Once her past-due rent debt is cleared, she will be able to maintain the household she has created for herself and her 5-year-old daughter.
