Ruth* was struggling to pay her bills while adjusting to her new role as caregiver to her grandson. In addition to her overwhelming bills, Ruth was paying legal fees to help sort out custody issues.
To get her through a difficult time, Ruth’s Navigator connected her with several resources available in her community. She was able to obtain help with diapers for her grandson, rental assistance for past due payments, and additional legal support. She continued to work with her Navigator to address her credit card and other debt and create long-term plans to provide a financially stable future for her grandson.
