Lex-Care: Family of three needs $500 to pay rent

Beth Meyers, a case manager at Mary Todd Elementary School, submitted a request to Lex-Care this week. She is working with a family of three who need $500 to pay their rent.

The family recently moved into a new home. The husband works for a landscaping company. Due to the unusual amount of rain during the summer, he was unable to work regularly. His reduced income during that time is the reason for their request. The wife has worked in customer service and has starting work on a second job.

Their new landlord is working with the family to create a workable rent payment plan. Once that is in place the family will be able to cover its living expenses.
