Lex-Care: Veteran needs help to pay rent

Jennifer Garland, a social worker at the Lexington Senior Center, is requesting $275 to help a senior with his rent. The senior is an Army veteran who got behind on rent when his insurance company deducted a payment from his checking account twice in the same month. The issue will be resolved this month, but for now he doesn't have the money to pay his rent. The client can get by on his Social Security and veteran's benefits, but he doesn't have any extra money each month. This assistance will prevent him from being evicted.
