Therese Fitzpatrick- Barkley, a social worker at Bluegrass Rape Crisis Center, is requesting $500 to help pay a client's rent.
Financial assistance from a family member has ended, so she has fallen behind in her rent.
The client is the single mother of four children, each of whom has special needs and is younger than 6. She is unable to work due to the extensive needs of her children.
To pay for her rent in the future, she plans to discontinue her day care services to decrease her monthly expenses.
Never miss a local story.
She also plans to apply for disability and move to a more affordable apartment when her lease ends. Financial assistance in this client's case could prevent eviction.
