Temicula B. Allen, a case manager at Lansdowne Family Resource Center, submitted the only case received at Lex-Care last week.
Her client is a single mother of three who needs $700 to pay for repairs to her car.
She is a reliable part-time employee with Fayette County Public Schools where she has worked for more than two years. She is just able to pay all household expenses from her earnings. However, her vehicle is breaking down. She needs the car for transportation. The amount requested will be sufficient to pay the estimated expense.
Allen states the mother has court ordered child support, which she has yet to receive. Once that situation is settled the family will be able to manage.
