KB, Northern Hills

  KB applied for assistance through WSDCA.  We helped her pay her water bill and another utility bill that was coming due.  A month of rental assistance was the stepping block KB needed to get back on her feet.

Esther, Southern Hills

Esther came to WSDCA for help.  We were able to get her caught up with her rent and utilities.  Since she had little income, WSDCA also helped with food, cleaning supplies, personal care items, and repairs to her car.
