A story about two very different families

An adult within two different families scheduled an appointment with me for crisis assistance, and as it turned out, the appointments were the same day. Both of the individuals are parents. Both individuals received a little unemployment insurance and stimulus help from the government. Yet, both were about $3,000 behind in necessary bills like rent and auto loans.

The first person that I interviewed had a plan for moving forward through this awful economic period, but the second person could not see beyond today’s pain to a better tomorrow. The difference in their perspectives was both clear and amazing.
