Taryn was in her second trimester when she was rushed to the emergency room with chronic pain and violent nausea.
She was put on mandatory bed rest for the remainder of her pregnancy and could no longer work. Struggling to pay her expenses on a limited income, Taryn called Bluffton Self Help after she received a disconnect notice from the electric company.
Following the interview and verification of information, Bluffton Self Help was able to pay her electric bill to avoid an interruption of service. Family members soon arrived to help Taryn with other expenses during the remainder of her pregnancy.
Bluffton Self Help provides a broad range of social services for poor working families, the disabled, the sick and the elderly.
