Marishia Hamilton, from Community Action, is requesting rent assistance of $500 for a client who has suffered from domestic violence.
After suffering a miscarriage, her client had to miss work and didn't have any sick time available. She has since returned to work and is set to graduate from college this year. If her rent is not paid, she will be evicted from her apartment. After getting caught up on her rent, the client will be able to continue to meet her needs. After graduation, she hopes to get a better job using her degree.
