‘I feel hope when I talk to you’: How a Legal Aid paralegal helped a struggling Grand Island woman with more than just a bankruptcy
In the final months of 2019, Breanne Crow was struggling to stay afloat. She couldn’t afford to pay rent, had moved several times, and kept going deeper into debt. As a self-described addict, Breanne had worked hard to get sober, but that required funds that she didn’t have.
“Addiction and debt go hand in hand,” she said. “If someone goes to detox and says, ‘I don’t have insurance,’ then they say, ‘Just worry about it later.’ You start to build that (debt), and it just happens so fast.”
