Stacia was devastated but not broken. She came to Greer Relief a month after she was laid off from her job with BMW. She immediately started the search for a new job. She cut back on her expenses, reduced her cell phone plan, began paying only the minimum payments on her credit cards, and lowered her insurance to liability only — but it still wasn’t enough to pay the rent.
She got the job she wanted, but she was still behind on rent. While she was relieved, she was concerned about being evicted with her two daughters, Jacqueline (11 years old) and Serena (10 years old). Greer Relief was happy to cover a month of rent, preventing eviction, and help her with toiletry items from the Supply Pantry, which she was ineligible to buy with SNAP assistance.
