Balanced Budget

Donna is an older adult and is struggling just a bit right now. She is having some medical testing done checking for effects of dementia and has a lot of anxiety. Recently she had a home repair that cost more than she could cover from her budget. She felt her only choice was to use a “title loan” company. She borrowed $200 only to find a few weeks later that she already owed almost $500. She knew she had chosen poorly but did not know how to get out of the situation. Her church referred her to GN and she qualifies for FEMA. Her February rent will be covered for one month and she will be able to balance her budget again. There are many choices ahead of her and she is getting help to make them. She was most appreciative of the resources shared.
