Rose and her fiancé, Owen, had just had a baby, Ethan, three months before they came to Greer Relief. Because Rose had some complications with the pregnancy that resulted in surgery and a week-long hospital stay, Owen had to take time off work to help Rose and care for the new baby and their other son, Sean.
In addition to Owen missing work, the family also had a water leak causing their water bill to be three times what it should have been. With Owen’s paycheck so much smaller than normal, they were struggling to make rent and to pay the large water bill. The landlord fixed the leak and agreed to work with them on their delayed rent, but they still needed help with the water bill.
Greer Relief stepped in was able to help with their bill and stop disconnection of their services. We also helped them with diapers and formula for baby Ethan.
