Single Mother and Her Children Won't Face Homelessness

LSSM client: Due to extenuating financial circumstances, Maggie fell behind on her rent payments and was facing the loss of housing for herself and her two children. After working with several other social service agencies, Maggie was referred to Legal Services of Southern Missouri. The legal aid attorney was able to negotiate a repayment plan between Maggie and the landlord, making it possible for Maggie and her children to keep a roof over their heads. Maggie has since paid the outstanding rent payments in full. Without Legal Services of Southern Missouri’s intervention, Maggie and her children would have been homeless.
