After the stepfather was severely injured in an auto accident, the mother’s income in a personal care home proved insufficient to support the family, which moved in with relatives.
The family now has its own apartment, but finances are tight; income is less than $15,000. The 10-year-old girl needs sports glasses in order to participate in team activities. The family cannot afford this expense, and its health insurance will not cover the cost. There are no other resources.
