When the system is broken

I haven't written here about my work, and probably won't do that a lot.

Right now I am trying to help a couple in crisis. He called yesterday to ask if our organization could help them. I'm not going to give a lot of details, but both he and his wife are unable to work. They have nothing. They're going to lose their home. He was asking if we could provide financial assistance to apply for bankruptcy. They're too broke to be legally broke.

My fingers are crossed that the powers that be come together to help them in some way, but it looks like we may be another organization that says, "in times of limited resources, we can only do so much..."
