The Jones Family

Ms.  Jones was a single mom of two girls. One of her girls had been in the hospital for over a month in Atlanta. Although she had the same job for 15 years, she now found herself behind on rent and utilities. She had used up all of her paid vacation and time off trying to spend time with her sick child. Most of her money went to transportation and food expenses she had occurred because of her child being so sick. She had never been to The Salvation Army for help, but she didn't know what else to do. The Salvation Army was able to use United Way funding to pay her utility bill, and pay her rent through a different fund. Now she is once again, financially secure and her child finally made it home a week later.
