Editor's note: The following is the story of someone who has been helped through Cobb Cares. Names have been changed to protect privacy.

Ms. Quarterly was referred for assistance by Cobb County Senior Services. Ms. Quarterly was a victim of a crime, which resulted in her being unable to pay her rent for two months. The landlord was willing to work with her on catching up on the past-due rent; however, Ms. Quarterly was unable to follow the agreement with the landlord, who started the eviction process. At the time Ms. Quarterly was referred for assistance, she did not have any family living in Georgia and family members out of state were unable to assist financially. Cobb Cares was able to pay for the past-due rent and late fees. With this assistance, Ms. Quarterly was able to maintain her apartment.
