An Advocate to Help

A longtime elderly client who was having difficulties with bills and living expenses contacted Open Door. She called crying because she was being evicted. She was several months behind on her rent. Through a period of working with her, we discovered she had “friends” stopping in and taking money from her. We were able to help her to pay rent and back rent in order to stay in her apartment.  We also helped her get a payee for her bills who will make sure her expenses are paid on time. Also she now has a caseworker, through a partner agency, who helps her in daily living.  She is now supported and has a secure roof over her head.
