Jennifer Garland, a social worker with the Lexington Senior Center, is working with a client who needs $348.15 to pay an overdue Kentucky Utilities bill.
The senior lives alone and her only income is from Social Security. She was hospitalized for a week and her home was vandalized.
After paying for home repairs and services, she got behind on her electric bill. Once the bill is current, she should be able to resume living on her fixed income.
