Air Conditioning Repair
A 32-year-old single mother receives no child support for her two 9-year-old children. She has a job making $9.35 an hour and receives $300 in food stamps. Her take-home pay is about $1,000 a month. With a tax refund last year, she bought a very used mobile home, but the air conditioning has not been working. She applied for a Community Development Block Grant with the City of MHK Housing Rehab Department. This application for the block grant was approved to have a company make the repairs. In order to have enough money for the quote, the Fairy Godmothers provided one of our grants to complete the payment for the work.
A single 26-year-old mother of a 3-month-old girl is receiving food stamps and a disability check. With diapers and baby food, her budget is tight. She is ready to go back to work but needed some dental fillings done to relieve mouth pain she has been suffering with. Fairy Godmothers helped her with a grant for dental work at Konza Dental Health Center.
Car Repairs Made
Fairy Godmothers helped a low-income senior who is on the Working Healthy Program at the Flint Hills Area Agency on Aging. She had some car repairs that were an unexpected expense. She could not pay for the repairs on her budget. She is currently looking for employment and is working with Older Kansans Employment Program.
Car Repair Assistance
A hard working 27-year-old single mother of two boys ages 5 and 7 has no child support and does not receive food stamps or housing assistance. She was receiving a Supplemental Security Income payment for mental issues until she started working part-time. Then, this payment was dropped. She also works part time doing house cleaning. Someone gave her a car, but it needed some work. Fairy Godmothers provided her with a grant for car repairs.
TRANSPORTATION TO CLASS
In order to get to classes and take her daughter to school, a young woman working on a nursing degree needed help with car repairs. With the help of a discount one of our vendors gave, plus the limited amount she could provide, the fairies grant covered the difference and got her back on the road.
