Bitten by cat, veterinary worker turns to Bluffton Self Help

info@islandpacket.comDecember 23, 2013 

Helen, who is a veterinary technician, was bitten by a cat, and a joint in her hand became infected. She had to seek medical care and miss work as a result.

Her employer covered the medical expenses but not the lost wages. She applied for assistance with Bluffton Self Help, which paid an electric bill.

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