How You Are Helping {Thank You}

My client was a single mom working part time and attending nursing school. She was living on about $700 a month and supporting her 15 month old daughter. Even though she bought a case of diapers with each paycheck, she would not have enough after rent and groceries to get through the month to buy more. She felt so guilty stretching and not changing the diaper as often because she was afraid of running out. She said she felt like she was a bad mother. Having us as a resource to fill in with diapers until she got her next paycheck allowed her to feel like a good mom.
