Jennifer Newton, a social worker at the Lexington Senior Center, is working with a disabled senior who needs $450 to pay his rent. The senior recently had car trouble, and the cost of repairs left him without enough money to pay his rent. He needs his car to get to doctor appointments and to go to the store. He has no family in the area to assist him.
After this one-time assistance, the client should be able to meet monthly expenses with no trouble.
