George requested assistance with his electric bill after his wife was laid off from her job in the fall. George cannot work due to a disability and his only source of income is SSDI (disability). His wife, Ella, also had to get an MRI as well as other medical tests to treat neck and back injuries from car accidents.
Ella does not have any health insurance and had to pay for the tests in full. In addition George has a child support payment deducted from his disability check. George had worked hard to reduce expenses and used all his resources until he didn’t have any money left to pay their electric bill. GSH assisted with his electric bill and gave him and his wife resources for job counseling, food assistance and health insurance coverage. Now George and Ella are in a more stable and financially secure situation.
