Sandra Ballew-Barnes of the Breckinridge Family Resource Center is working with a family that needs $500 to help pay an electric bill. The husband is the only one working in the household; the wife is a stay-at-home-mom of a 2-year-old daughter. The mom is willing to return to work as a teacher but has been unable to find a job.
Kentucky Utilities is willing to make payment arrangements with the family, and they have gotten some financial assistance from other organizations.
