Wendy Doughty is a single mother of three in Malad who benefitted from the program last year.
“It’s not like I sit at home and wait for people to help me,” Doughty said. “I work. I just don’t make enough to always pay my electric bill. It’s pretty awesome when this program can help; you pay what you can, and then they help with the rest.”
Originally from Louisiana, Doughty had never heard of Lend-a-Hand. “I was surprised,” she said. “I didn’t know there was anything like this.”
