Help with Utilities
Topalli, his wife, and their 5 children are a local family struggling to make ends meet. They came to the US from Kosovo approximately 12 years ago, living in the Gwinnett area before coming to Fayette County. Topalli, who doesn’t speak English, has been unemployed for over a year, and his wife was recently laid off from her job cleaning houses due to a significant decrease in her company’s clients. The family is currently being supported by their 17 year old son who works at a local ice cream shop.
They do not have a car; their only mode of transportation is a golf cart. They attend a local Catholic church (due to proximity to their home), and have received threats from members of the local Muslim community because of that.
The family has received help from other local agencies, to include the Real Life Center, which has been supplying them with food. However, they still needed assistance paying their electric bill this month. Rolling Hills stepped up and took care of this need for them.
