Jennifer Garland, a social worker with the Lexington Senior Center, is requesting $500 to help a client pay her rent. The client is a 64-year-old senior who lost her job as a nurse last year, then her home to foreclosure. She has used her savings to pay her bills but is unable to pay her rent this month. She has applied for nursing jobs in other counties and is considering applying for Social Security benefits if she doesn't find a job soon.
