Linda needs help with her rent payment

Partner: Peter Paul Development Center

Advisor: Sherika Chew

Linda has fallen behind on her rent which is roughly $150 per month because last month there was confusion around her disability income and it was deposited incorrectly. It took some time for this issue to be corrected and caused her to be late on her May payment. She has since received the money but was unfortunately robbed at the ATM when she went to collect it. She is now unable to pay for both May and June totaling $300. She could really use assistance getting back on track as she recovers from these events.
