Help and Hope for Gaylene

A degenerative bone condition left Gaylene unable to work after years of independently making it on her own. When she came to Crisis Assistance Ministry she was piecing together income from disability payments and social security.

Last winter, the freezing weather challenged her budget. No matter how much she bundled up at night, her power bills grew.

The threat of a utility disconnection became a reality and she needed help beyond her circle of support.

Because of generous people like you, Gaylene received an immediate emergency payment directly to the power company and was able to return to a warm apartment.

“I know how to ask for help and I know how to give help, too. It’s give and take.” ~Gaylene
