Lex-Care: Grandmother caring for grandchildren needs $500 for rent

Ashley Gray, a case manager at Lifeline Home Health, is counseling a woman who needs $500 to pay her rent. The woman cares for two grandchildren, ages 6 and 10.

She had to leave her job as a bus driver when she was diagnosed with cancer. Because she can no longer work, she applied for long-term disability benefits, which have been approved. Once the payments are established, she will be able to maintain her household.
