How We Impact
Flor is a single mother of 3 children who was laid off for several months due to COVID-19 and fell behind on her water payments. While Flor was able to return to her previous job where she had worked for 5 years before the pandemic, she was not able to put together the amount needed to pay the total past-due amount on her bill. 2-1-1 was able to help Flor apply for unemployment and TANF while also connecting her with a financial advisor to help her with budgeting moving forward. In addition, 2-1-1 was able to help Flor apply for the financial assistance she needed to pay her water bill.
