Anne Vandervort, a case manager at Volunteers of America, is working with a family of five that needs $140.51 to pay its electric bill.
The husband was laid off recently and has applied for unemployment benefits. The wife is primarily a stay-at-home mom, taking care of their three children, ages 3 to 6.
The family lives in Section 8 housing. They have applied for an adjustment on their rent and for food stamps. Once the bill is paid, the family will be able to manage.
