Jennifer Garland, a social worker with the Lexington Senior Center, is working with a client who needs $500 to pay her Kentucky Utilities bill. The client has an all-electric home and her bill was high this month due to the cold temperatures. She also had increased medical bills, which contributed to her shortfall.
Getting assistance now will prevent her electricity from being disconnected. After paying the bill, the client will be able to meet her monthly expenses using her Social Security income and wages from her part-time job.
