County Department of Social Services
We helped a single mother who moved to our community, who had 3 children but had no child support coming in, and was fleeing a domestic violence situation back there, who was working but making a low wage, to get her power and water turned on so she could move into a rental property.
The most of this money is spent for family after family that has had work hours reduced or maybe ONE parent has lost a job, there are kids in the home, they are not eligible for DSS programs due to income, but are not able to pay all their bills. We normally help with rent/mortgage or utilities. And we do counsel them about how to get through the following month.
