Many of the clients we serve are without jobs or health insurance, living on fixed incomes and suffering from complex, chronic illnesses. There is an urgent need, especially in the winter months, to provide heating bill assistance to clients who cannot afford higher than normal costs that tend to fluctuate during this time. Often clients must face the choice of either paying for their doctor visits and medications, or paying increased utility bills

MJ is a 56 yr old gentleman suffering from kidney failure who has been on weekly dialysis treatments for the last 2 years. He has not had his eyes checked in over 15 years and could not afford a pair of glasses to help him read or even see the road. His social worker reached out to the LFWC to request assistance for an eye exam and possible glasses. Thanks to America’s Best Eyeglasses, which offers an exam and 2 pairs of glasses for $69.95, clients like MJ can see well for the first time in years. As MJ put it: “I just thought not being able to see anything good was a reality for me; but thanks to LFWC and my new eyeglasses, I enjoy reading again and just got my driver’s license! Thank you for helping me get my sight back!”
