Sisters living together - 7/20/14
teenager and her older sister live together. Both girls have been abused by
family members so there is no family support what-so-ever. Older sister has
many medical problems and was on disability but her disability has expired (she
is in the process of disputing this). They live with a roommate who also has
medical issues, but is employed. Teenager has been working 40 hours a week and
going to school. Teenager’s and Room-mate’s income is not enough to cover all
the medical bills and living expenses. Change for a Dollar was able to give
them $100 in grocery gift cards and $100 in gas gift cards (Older sister’s
doctor is in Mt. Pleasant and they didn’t have enough gas to get there and
back).Also, due to the loss of income,
they got behind on their electricity bill. Change for a Dollar paid $250
towards their electricity bill.
