Bluffton Self Help assists people and families in need

A divorced mother of two was having difficulty paying bills after her ex-husband stopped paying voluntary child support.

She filed for court-ordered child support but was told it could take awhile before she received any payments. She came to Bluffton Self Help looking for help.

A staff member scheduled a Benefit Bank appointment, and after she filled out income and expense information, she and her children were eligible for more than $200 a month in SNAP benefits, formerly known as food stamps.

Bluffton Self Help provides a broad range of social services for poor working families, the disabled, sick and elderly.
