Help with Utilities
Kim and her husband were in desperate need of assistance. He is a disabled veteran who suffered a severe brain injury when his vehicle was hit with an IED. He now suffers from severe migraines and PTSD that make it difficult for him to function. Kim was recently laid off when her company was downsized, and has been unable to find another full-time job. She was able to find a part-time job working from home, but that job is also in jeopardy as their phone and internet service have been turned off. They were facing eviction, as well as the termination of their water and electric service if payments were not made immediately. The Real Life Center and the United Way were able to pay their rent and phone service; we were able to pay off their utility bills.
