Lana and Trey moved to the area after Trey received a job offer in upper management.
Trey worked long hours in his new position. Lana’s hours were not consistent, so she began to look for another job to help supplement their household income.
As summer approached, they realized they could not easily afford child care for their 6-year-old son. They knew they both needed to work to maintain their bills but were not sure what to do.
They applied for help at Bluffton Self Help. After an interview and brief discussion about income and expenses, Bluffton Self Help told the couple that their son’s child care would be paid for.
Bluffton Self Help provides a broad range of social services for poor working families, the disabled, the sick and the elderly.
