I’d check on her to make sure she’s not plugged into anything. I’d probably talk to her and discuss how she is going to remedy this situation. Then, help her call the churches in the area as they help in situations like this. Geez, there are other organizations that do the same with utilities and past rent…trying to think of them. I’ll call one of my low income Tenants… they know all the ins and outs. As a Landlord, I’ve had to send letters to these places telling them the length of tenancy etc… then they cut me the check for the rent ! United Way? I know one girl got money from the Catholic church and she wasn’t even Catholic. They have funds set aside for these situations, but they only help each family once during the year.
Hope I got your mind working. I’ll get a hold of one of my Tenants and ask her …
