Jennifer Garland, a social worker at the Lexington Senior Center, is assisting a senior and his wife who need $500 to pay their rent. The client recently had to quit his job for health reasons. He has applied for disability but has not yet been approved.
The couple is living off the wife's wages from Rite Aid, which is enough to pay most of their bills but not the rent. The landlord is working with the couple and is not filing for eviction.
