Mom is concerned about paying her rent this month which is $1585. She sought help from the CAP agency who referred her to the school to explore possible help from the FISH program. Her health coverage during short term disability is not paid by her employer which is an additional $663, however, her dad said he could pick up some extra jobs to try and pay for that. She did not pay her utilities last month either but thinks she can set up a payment plan with them once she is back to work full time. She is expecting to resume full-time employment on May 8th. Financial assistance for the full or partial amount of rent is needed.

What caused this need?

I am working with a family who is struggling. The father has been struggling with mental illness and the mom sought a restraining order against the father to keep her two sons (5th gr and 8th gr) and herself safe. They even stayed at a hotel a few nights. The dad was apprehended today so they returned to the home to find broken windows and big ticket items missing. The mom is a nurse but recently had back surgery and is on short-term disability. She shared that her income the last 6 weeks has been reduced by over 70% down to $1700/month.
