Lex-Care: Single mom needs help to pay rent

Angie Gibbs-Scanlon, a social worker at the Bluegrass Rape Crisis Center, is assisting a client with a teenage daughter who needs $500 to pay her rent. The client recently divorced her husband and is still adjusting to a one-income household. She fell behind on rent and pulled money from her 401K to pay for two months of rent.

The client has talked with family members, requested assistance from her church and is talking to her landlord about giving her an extension. Her landlord is willing to work with her. She plans to increase her work hours so that she will be able to pay her bills in the future.
