A local Summerville woman who works at an apartment complex has been helpful to the residents by helping them out with deferred rent payments and small amounts of financial assistance out of her own pocket at times. She has also made referrals to Change for a Dollar in the past. She would contact Change for a Dollar for help with larger expenses like helping with electric bills as she couldn’t afford to help that much. Change for a Dollar had not heard from her in over a year until recently she contacted us. She now herself was struggling as she has two young adult children that got into financial trouble and she helped them to the point of overextending herself. She had a past due electric bill and was in danger of disconnect but was able to come up with the funds to pay the disconnect amount. She still had a significant outstanding balance on her account. Change for a Dollar assisted her by making a payment toward the outstanding balance that she greatly appreciated.
