Outstanding Utility Bill Causes Stress On Mother

This mother of one child came to IFCS for assistance with her utility bill. The client stated that she required assistance due to the fact that she has been unemployed for roughly six weeks. She was previously employed as an assistant manager for a spa. However, she did not receive any compensation for the last month that she worked at this position. She said that after not receiving a paycheck for over a month that she quit her job. She has filed a complaint with the Colorado Department of Labor regarding this situation, and is currently in the process of applying for unemployment. The client’s lack of income has left her unable to pay her utilities for the last month. Currently her only income is child support and food stamps, which is not nearly enough to support herself. This woman stated that she has attempted to resolve her financial situation by looking for work, going to job interviews, and budgeting.

The client’s budget is currently $1,025 in the negative each month. Her largest expenses are currently rent at $950 a month, cable at $100 a month, public service at $75 a month, and phones at $70 a month. The client was encouraged to drop cable, to utilize subsidized phone programs and continue searching for new employment. She was also encouraged to continue the application process for unemployment and consider applying for TANF. She was also given a list of organizations that may be able to assist with job placement.

The client’s total bill was $155.45, with the full amount past due. IFCS agreed to pay the full past due amount using EOC funds.
