One case requesting $664.16 to pay utility bills was received at Lex-Care this week.
Ashley Gray, a case manager at Lifeline Home Health, submitted the case on behalf of a client, who is a single mother. She has taken unpaid leave from her full-time job as a certified nursing assistant to care for her seven-year-old child, who was hospitalized after being in an accident. She will return to work as soon as the child is able to go back to school.
The loss of her income has caused her to fall behind on her electric, gas and telephone bills.
Once the debts are cleared, she will be able to maintain her household on her earnings.
