Lex-Care: Sexual assault victim needs $500 to pay rent

Sonja Escamilla, with the Bluegrass Rape Crisis Center, is requesting $500 to help a client pay her rent. The client is a grandmother who is caring for two grandchildren, ages 9 and 10. She was sexually assaulted recently and was unable to return to work after the trauma. She is looking for new employment that is less stressful. Assistance with her rent will help to prevent eviction.
